Poetic Justice: Former SF Army Base Becoming Zen Spa Retreat

Baker For more than 100 years, Fort Baker has sat in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge. The former Army fort, which was built to protect the Bay Area, especially the bridge, sits at the south end of pristine Sausalito, just at the bottom of the winding, meandering hill that descends from the north entrance to the bridge (anyone who has ever ridden a bike down the sloping hill has careened by this swath of land). It has sat unused for years and now Fort Baker, with its sweeping views of the Bay and Pacific Ocean, Alcatraz and Angel Islands and the north end of the City, is being transformed into Cavallo Point -- The Lodge at Golden Gate. The $117.9 million-dollar, first-class, upscale renovation is set to open to the public in April 2008 and will include a spa, world-class dining, the Healing Arts Center, herb atrium, historic bowling alley, wine and olive oil center -- and access to 75,000 acres of hiking trails and beaches, woods and other natural wonders only found in SF. The property will include a 15,000 sq ft main lodge, currently undergoing a massive refurb, and 142 lodging units, half of which are being restored to their original splendor, with the other half new, eco-friendly green housing. This will no doubt be one of the most sought after destinations in the Bay Area, close enough to the city with easy access to offerings in Napa, Sonoma and Marin counties.
