Please take a two minute tour of our beautiful, historic property! Check us out at https://vimeo.com/113216787
Wake up to views of a world class marina and beautiful waters of the Carquinez Straight from a 2 story, 104 year old former Lighthouse and Victorian home where you can soak in the California sunshine from the gorgeous early morning sunrise throughout the wonderfully warm afternoon. At night, the C&H Sugar Factory lights up and will provide a subtle twinkle across the waters against the dark sky. Our property is the center-piece of the Glen Cove Marina so you have the comforts of a beautiful and relaxing home with beautiful views and places for light exercise on our two large lawns. In addition, our parking lot also is a starting point for the SF Bay Trail which takes you up the hill where you end at the top of the Carquinez Bridge. Our recently renovated two-story home has all the modern conveniences for comfortable and easy living, but believe us, the charm & personality of this old building is certainly not lost. It has over 2600 square feet of space; and includes an extra large living room, 3 huge upstairs bedrooms that come with a queen size bed in each room, a partially secluded extra loft area with a pullout couch, 2 full bathrooms, free wi-fi, two flat screen televisions with Comcast cable with over 80 channels, the accessibility of a full-size washer and dryer inside, an equipped modern kitchen, a stunning formal dining room, plus additional restroom facilities all on-site!
Our historic and wonderfully unique Carquinez Straight Victorian building was built at the southern end of Mare Island in 1910 as the first lighthouse to mark the entrance to the Carquinez Straight and the Napa River. Even though it had been decommissioned as a lighthouse in 1954, it has been nestled in the tranquil, appealing Glen Cove area of Vallejo since 1955 and continues to flourish as the centerpiece for the Glen Cove Marina and the surrounding neighborhoods. As a business, we are a full berthed marina that harbors and occupies boats of all types and sizes.
Glen Cove Marina purchased this house in 2007
There is nothing else out there like us. We would love nothing more than for you to stay with Glen Cove Marina and experience our hidden gem on the water for yourselves. We are family-friendly and excited to share our accommodations with you, your friends and your family! Be a part of something special and memorable; come over and escape with us!

What a beautiful location and view and close to many locations in the Bay Area for adventures.
Truly enjoyed the stay in the Victorian Lighthouse...Everything was clean and the rooms were beautiful. Great place for a family gathering. Staff was friendly and timely in getting repairs completed. Area was colder than usual and we were brought up additional space heaters. Racheal and Heather were very friendly and accommodating. Easy drive to San Francisco with options including the Ferry and Bart system.
My family and I spend the holiday weekend here. Lots of light, great views out all windows and plenty of room for our family of 5. Rooms were big, clean and well appointed. We had an issue with TV, Internet and one of the bathrooms. I understand it was a holiday but the phone number we called several times never answered or returned our messages. Some of the issues were resolved on the 3rd day when we were able to find someone in the office. I would suggest the management of the property consider making a check in call a few hours after guests arrive. The upside to no TV or Internet was lots of board games, some reading and conversation with teenagers! Overall we would stay again.
My family and I stayed here for four nights and had the most wonderful stay. The staff, from the initial encounter through our arrival, was so nice and accommodating. This was our first trip to California and we had a lot planned for our five days in the Bay Area, we therefore didn’t imagine spending a whole lot of time at the Victorian Lighthouse. BUT, the place itself and the surrounding marina is so beautiful that we found ourselves struggling to leave it each day! The location is very convenient too! We were just a short drive from Napa and SF where most of our plans were centered and coming “home” each night to the marina was a dream. This is definitely the perfect place to stay with your family!
If you just want to get away from all the tussle and bustle of a busy life….this is where you should be. You don’t really need to go anywhere….staying at this ‘retreat’ with the beautiful setting where you can sit out on the marina and enjoy a cup a coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night. It’s a good thing. We are total foodies so we all made our own specialties…..literally ate, drank and ENJOYED!
One upgrade would be is to have a BBQ grill and have outdoor seating at the rooftop (to the left of the front door.
My family had a wonderful stay! There were 6 of us and we found the house very spacious and clean. As soon as we walked in we were pleased with everything we saw. We loved the view from the house! It also was an easy drive to Napa and San Francisco. We made both trips on more that one day. I would highly recommend this house for families or small groups. Rachael and Heather were both very pleasant and helpful.
What an absolutely fantastic place to stay!! There are very few places like it, and I am an avid traveler. My family and I spent a week here and could not have enjoyed our stay more- we loved every minute of it! It is a historic building in a great location. You can't beat the view!! Watching the sunrise and sunset from a gorgeous Marina in a cozy Lighthouse - very very charming and unique!
And one of the biggest assets is the staff - The management must be congratulated on their hiring and staffing policy - they have assembled a great team. Everyone was incredibly courteous, helpful - they did everything they could to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We felt like we were "at home!" - highly highly recommended!

Please be honest about how many adults & children will be staying in our rental. We want everyone to really enjoy themselves & relax away everyday life but our rental is not intended for loud, crazy parties (a hard lesson we have had to learn from past guests). If loud partying is your true intention to rent from us, we don't believe this is the right venue for you... but we do wish you the best!
