Welcome to our latest edition of 90 Minutes of Separation. If you have been following this series (and it’s not too late to do so…see our Suggested Links below), you already know that we feature (with some exceptions) destinations that are relatively close to Vallejo – reachable by car, plane, train, ferry…You get the picture.
However compelling the destination, dog lovers often have to find accommodations that may be out of the way or not up to the quality they desire (unless they camp or travel by van). So it’s great to find exceptions to this rule.
And Cavallo Point truly fits the bill. Located at Fort Baker, in a stunning expanse of land fronting on San Francisco Bay and virtually in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge, this exceptional property makes its priorities clear: The resort welcomes dogs and has created a special program, Eco Luxe Pups, to ensure that guest poochs’ get the kind of TLC normally reserved for their human owners.
Visiting dogs get a goody bag full of special organic treats, sleep on cushy beds and eat/drink in decorative bowls (see this posting’s slide show). Drinking bowls are placed around the property so dogs can keep hydrated. This is good planning since the large public access lawn area that fronts on many of Cavallo’s buildings is perfect for romping pets.
Owners who are used to taking their dogs on long walks will especially appreciate the layout. There’s plenty of sights to explore. Within walking distance of the lodge is a large fishing pier (more on that soon in our companion Hunting and Fishing Examiner blog) as well as a marina and hiking trails.
The Lodge also has a gift store, that rivals in size and variety of quality products, those usually associated with museums in the San Francisco area. Here guests can find for sale a wide selection of dog-related items, including the handsome food and water bowls created by Sausalito Pottery that are found in Cavallo’s rooms.
Guests can bring a maximum of two friendly dogs per room where a one-time non-refundable fee of $75 applies. For more information about the Eco Luxe Pups program, visit Cavallo’s website or call Reservations at 1.888.651.2003.
