Upscale Escape Close to San Francisco

San Francisco Costanoa Lodge

Added by Pascual Dutton

  • A "glamping" experience that's easy to access from San Francisco
  • Canvas tent bungalows with electric blankets and down comforters
  • Cozy cabins for families and groups with an outdoor fireplace and deck
  • Miles of hiking options and easy access to the coast
  • Indulge in the hot tub at the end of a long day
  • A great, convenient way to introduce kids to the outdoors

Looking for a quick escape from the city, but sleeping on the ground isn’t really your thing? Look no further than Costanoa Lodge in Pescadero, an upscale "glamping" experience just an hour south of San Francisco with tons of hiking options. This is a really fun option for anyone who enjoys being active in the outdoors, but doesn't want to sacrifice the creature comforts of home. There’s a general store, hot showers, a spa, a restaurant, and a hot tub.

Once there, you’ll have miles of hiking options from your front door - you can either choose to explore the more challenging mountain trails (multiple lengths ranging from 3 to 8 miles), or stroll along the coastal network of trails. If you don't mind hopping in your car, Butano State Park, Ano Nuevo, and Santa Cruz are all easily within reach.

We recommend Costanoa for small groups of friends, families, or couples looking for a really convenient outdoor getaway.

Did this on a groupon and enjoyed our weekend there. A nice way to disconnect.

The town of Mendocino is as charming and quaint as one can find. It is no wonder why it was pegged as the perfect location spot to film the series Murder She Wrote.
