Have you ever crossed over the Richmond Bridge and wondered what that old Victorian home is doing atop a craggy rock in the bay?
Turns out, the rock (East Brother Island) and its trademark Victorian (East Brother Light Station Dinner + B&B) go back more than 140 years as a light station, illuminating ships' charted courses in the likely event of heavy fog.
An overnight stay at the lighthouse includes bubbly and bites, a multi-course dinner with wine, and a gourmet breakfast the next morning. Innkeepers Jude Haukom and Richard Foregger will show you around the property—there are horseshoe pits and a basketball hoop for your recreational pleasure, and lots of relaxing space to read and write. Book a night here.
