Cavallo Point is a picturesque property that sits on an enviable patch of land in the Marin Headlands, enjoying a bay-front cove near the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge. Beautifully restored white-frame and red-roofed buildings –built at the turn of the 20th Century when the property served as Fort Baker –house modern rooms and porches to laze on. Find time for the truly exceptional Healing Arts Center (that’s day spa to you) that features al fresco showers, fire pits, and a thermal pool to bask in the beauty of the surroundings. Afterwards, grab a drink from the bar with a pressed-tin ceiling, and take it to the comfy chairs surrounding a second set of fire pits that overlook the monumental beams of the famous bridge.
