Location Summary
Cavallo Point Lodge is situated within Fort Baker, part of The Golden Gate National Parks. Originally inhabited by the coastal Miwok tribes, Horseshoe Cove became home to Fort Baker long before there was a Golden Gate Bridge. In 1866, the U.S. Army acquired the site for a military base to fortify the north side of the Golden Gate. The 24 buildings around the 10-acre parade ground at Fort Baker took shape between 1901 and 1915. The Army post remained active through World War II.

Directions to Hotel
There is easy access from Cavallo Point to San Francisco by car, bus and ferry. All three Bay Area airports are just a short drive away: San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is 40-50 minutes; OAK, Oakland International Airport (OAK) is 50 minutes; and San Jose International Airport (SJC) is 70 minutes.

For guests arriving at SFO who prefer not to rent a car, the Marin Airporter bus is available from SFO to Sausalito. Cavallo Point provides pick up from the bus stop. When the bus begins to cross the Golden Gate Bridge, call our Front Desk so that our shuttle can be ready for pick up at the Marin Airporter stop. Plan to depart the Marin Airporter at Spencer Avenue. This is the exit after the Golden Gate Bridge and through a tunnel. The first exit after the tunnel is Spencer Avenue. This service is also available upon return to SFO.
