About East Brother Light Station

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 since 1873. The Inn began operations in 1979 as a means of earning money for the 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.
