CNN recently listed Richmond’s East Brother Lighthouse as one of the top five lighthouse hotels worldwide. See http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/08/travel/worlds-top-lighthouse-hotels.
From the article:
San Francisco's 19th-century East Brother Lighthouse sits on an isolated land bank overlooking the glittering city and spectacular Mount Tamalpais. Today, guests can stay in the station's pretty guesthouse.
Island retreat - Nestled on a tiny land bank in San Francisco Bay, the East Brother Light Station is a bit like staying on your own personal island.
Guests can take a ten-minute boat ride from San Francisco to the historic lighthouse, which has been shining its light across the bay for more than 130 years.
The bed-and-breakfast guesthouse includes views over the glittering city skyline, Mount Tamalpais and the Marin coastline.
When not soaking up the ocean views, visitors can also enjoy fishing trips and wildlife walks.
East Brother is operated by a non-profit corporation that depends on volunteers to maintain it. This Saturday, June 8, is the monthly volunteer service day at East Brother. If you would like to help, see http://www.ebls.org/volunteering.html about signing up as volunteer. It’s going to be a beautiful 75o sunny day. To register for June 8, call Peggy at 707-689-3189 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
