This Little Known B&B Near San Francisco Will Be Your New Favorite Summer Destination

While San Francisco has some unique places to stay, venture a little beyond the city and you’ll find some truly enchanting accommodations that’ll make you feel worlds away from the urban hustle and bustle. This B&B, located on a tiny island in the San Rafael Bay, just 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco, is a one-of-a-kind getaway.

A few things to keep in mind when staying at the East Brother Light Station Victorian Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast: All water used on the island is collected from the rain; this means water is on short supply (especially given California’s recent drought), and showers are only allowed for multiple-night stays. No landline phones, and your mobile may be spotty. This means, you’ll be forced to fully relax.
