Having just gotten back from a European excursion, it was time for some rest and relaxation. And at this picturesque location, I was able to kick the jet lag to the curb.

 Situated just outside the bustling San Francisco, rests the ever so welcoming Cavallo Point Lodge. Boasting of views of the Golden Gate Bridge, while mixing modern and historic architecture, this hotel was the perfect venue to unwind. Ascending down the hill in to the area of Fort Baker, I knew this quiet oasis had a lot in store and I was beaming with excitement to explore.

Checking into the suite, my eyes were instantly drawn to the lounge couch across the room. The Golden Gate Bridge was in plain sight from the seat and I couldn’t believe how clear it was. The room was spacious with a private deck looking out over the bay, allowing for the perfect location for cocktail hour. The room was complete with a Nespresso machine (my personal favorite), plush robes, and decadent chocolates placed bedside. The bed was almost too comfortable  — making it impossible to get up for the day while the luxurious bathroom and large fireplace remind me of the ever present theme — relaxation.

Just a short walk down the path across the hotel, awaited the spa. Fresh brewed tea, an eucalyptus steam room, and a meditation pool were just some of the treats available in this tranquil space.

One of the best perks of staying at Cavallo Point are the cars they have on hand for you to use. But of course, they are not just any cars — Cavallo Point has Lexus’ available for use (be sure to call ahead as they have three and are available to all guests).

During the afternoon there was complimentary wine hour, that of course was not to be missed every day there. Every corner of the Cavallo Point Lodge had a cozy spot that was appropriate for each part of the day, like the front porch for a tasty breakfast, the fireplace outback and an art gallery.

With all the amenities you could want and more, Cavallo Point is the place to stay when looking for rejuvenation. Only minutes away from San Francisco and a short drive from Sacramento, this little oasis was the perfect getaway.

I love that it’s a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, meaning it has standards in quality and excellence you can count on — something I personally look for in a hotel. Overall the time reminded me that you don’t have to travel too far to experience an oasis rooted in relaxation and taking things slow. I am already looking forward to going back.

These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.

1. Book Your Flights

I use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.

2. Book Your Accommodations

I use for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.

3. Book Your Tours & Experiences

I use Viator or Get Your Guide to find the best tours and experiences. They are my favorite tour search engines. I always check both as their inventory varies depending on the destination.

4. Book Your Rental Car

Self-driving is the best way to explore most destinations. I use Discover Cars for our rental cars, select full coverage insurance, and opt for a reputable company like Alamo, Hertz, or Sixt.

5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access

I use Priority Pass to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.

6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.

My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
