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.

East Brother Light Station

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.

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

We booked the whole place for one night for a birthday celebration. Dre and Charity are the most charming hosts! Dre is a wonderful chef--the food was superb. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet, with a game room and parlor available. The tour of the whole place was fascinating. Wine was freeflowing at dinner, which was scrumptious!

This trip was brilliant fun! The island is fascinating, the inn is delightful, the company was fantastic, and the food was incredible! The innkeepers accommodated each of my family member's different food restrictions with good cheer and no fuss -- and the results were delicious. We've visited a bunch of the lighthouses along the California coast, and this one is unique.
