Built in 1873, this beautifully restored California Victorian Lighthouse Inn - perched atop an island in the strait separating the San Francisco and San Pablo Bays - provides a unique California destination.

Our Lighthouse Inn

The island is the perfect choice for an intimate overnight stay or a special weekend event. Each of our five rooms features nautical décor and a beautiful bay view. We look forward to welcoming you soon! 

Epicurean Table

Dinner is four courses of delight, accompanied by wine, a unique and delicious experience you will share with up to four other couples at a community table. Breakfast is no less a work of culinary art.

Impeccable service

Our innkeepers live on the island to ensure you get everything you need. They also provide an overview of island's history and information about restoration efforts.


With the island an hour's drive from downtown San Francisco, relaxation has never been easier. You can immerse yourself in the island's history while enjoying spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline or Mount Tamalpais.

Our Reviews

Amazing one-of-a-kind experience. Great lighthouse history tour, and the views, from above or below, incredible— birds, harbor seals, and dolphins. But what topped it all off was our gracious hosts, Brian and Stephanie. Boating skills, lighthouse knowledge and skills, chef skills, plus personality, sense of humor, enthusiasm, kindness, and devotion to customer service, who has that skill set, they are unique too. Go!

Can't say enough about this seemingly remote and historic inn within a half hour from downtown San Francisco. Great food, lovely comfortable rooms and lulled to sleep by lapping waves and fog horns. We give a 10+ rating to Inn keepers Brian and Stephanie who do everything with smiles and know everything about this historic treasure.
Fall 2022
We found this destination in a book about adventures near San Francisco. Our time on the island and with the inn keepers was beyond anything we could have imagined. Amazing meals, company, vibe and views. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone, especially if you are looking for something memorable, special, and unique.
