|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Please take a two minute tour of our beautiful, historic property!
Wake up to views of a world class marina and beautiful waters of the Carquinez Strait 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, 4 huge upstairs bedrooms (three with a queen-size bed in each room, and one with a queen-sized 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 Strait Victorian building was built at the southern end of Mare Island in 1910 as the first lighthouse to mark the entrance to the Carquinez Strait 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.
The Lighthouse at 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!
For each person’s convenience, our office staff / maintenance are on-site at all times as well, so you can always count on us to be there for you!
*Please note our office is closed on Sundays and Mondays*
We also offer a beautiful banquet room that we rent for weddings, receptions, parties, family reunions, baby showers, business meetings, etc! The banquet room is located on-site with the vacation rental and the marina! Please contact our office for more details regarding hosting your event here.
Just wanted to thank you for an amazing weekend, the home was perfect. We are already planning another trip to the area and hope that Glen Cove Marina will be available, we loved it!
This was a girls trip, and from
Initial booking until the end of the trip everything went well.
Because one of us was there on business the wifi was sketchy and so management did everything to make that better so that she could continue her business on wifi.
Booked this place for my wedding weekend so that my entire family could stay in one place as well as my bridal party could get ready here.
Management was responsive and fair. If I remember correctly, there was an issue about the parking permits but that was quickly fixed within 12 hours. No one ever came around snooping, etc.
The pictures do not do justice to the location. It is just gorgeous (esp for pictures) and very spacious. We had some kiddies and were getting ready there so having a spacious enough location was needed. Also, the parking lot is *right there* so no need to hike to any location and plenty of parking spots too.
I don' t remember not finding what we needed at the place esp in the kitchen when we were trying to feed the entire family.
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.
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!
