East Brother Lighthouse, or more accurately a Light Station, is a beautifully restored California Victorian Lighthouse Dinner, Bed & Breakfast Inn perched atop an island in the strait that separates San Francisco and San Pablo Bays.
Located 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco, CA, the lighthouse Dinner, Bed & Breakfast is close enough for a weekend jaunt or as a unique complement to your San Francisco/Northern California visit. Once on the island, visitors take in the spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline, Mount Tamalpais, and the Marin coastline.
East Brother LIght Station has been an active lighthouse for more than 142 years. The Inn began operations 35 years ago as a means of earning money for upkeep of the restored lighthouse and facilities.
The lighthouse offers the rare combination of both a “lighthouse dinner, bed & breakfast” and an “island Dinner, B&B,” and is a unique California destination. Though only a ten-minute boat ride to the island, the lighthouse inn seems to be a world away from the lights of the nearby cities.
Guests of East Brother Light Station have a direct impact upon its preservation. Funds earned by the Inn, through its non-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation, pay for ongoing restoration and maintenance costs of the buildings and equipment of the island.
Lighthouse Dinner Bed & Breakfast guests can stay in one of five available rooms. Four of the rooms are located within the lighthouse itself and one room is located in the original Fog Signal Building. A stay at the lighthouse includes champagne & hors d’oeuvres upon arrival, a multi-course dinner with wine and a full gourmet breakfast the next morning. Guests are also provided with a full tour of the island taking in all of the buildings and being regaled with the history of the island and its life as a lighthouse up to the present day.
