Sausalito’s Cavallo Point Lodge made a big splash when it opened for business in 2008. Though it is billed as a lodge — a national park lodge, at that — the property has an undeniable resort-like feel, with services and amenities to match. With a spa, a restaurant boasting an award-winning wine program, a cooking school focused on local ingredients, miles of hiking trails and stunning views, guests can easily be happy without ever leaving the grounds. Adding to the mystique is the sense of history from the Presidio’s military past, evoked by the beautifully restored, LEED-certified landmark brick buildings encircling the grounds. This seamless meld of old and new has drawn praise from the likes of National Geographic and Conde Nast Traveler, and the acclaim keeps coming. Here are some numbers to round out your knowledge of the resort.
