Property Description

Casa Madrona Hotel and Spa is a triumphant symbol of the dreams and ambitions of its various owners. There has always been a certain magical quality about this storied Bay Area bed and breakfast inn; and it has attracted a colorful collection of hosts and guests since opening its doors in 1885. The earliest roots of this inviting Northern California bed and breakfast can perhaps be traced to the 1700s -- when Spanish explorers in the area known today as Sausalito noticed small "saucitos," or willow trees, growing along the stream banks of this lush region. Between 1869 and 1874, the town exploded in size as a railroad, potable water system, and ferry line to San Francisco were built. With this expansion came new entrepreneurs, visitors, and residents. This pioneering breed included William Barrett, Secretary-Treasurer for the San Francisco Gas and Electric Company and a prominent member of San Francisco society. In 1885, he and his wife Clara built a lavish "casa" on a hillside overlooking the center of town. The location offered a wide-angle view of San Francisco Bay, which teemed with the powerful freight ships, elegant yachts, and sidewheeler ferryboats. The plot of land itself was an extravagant collage of huge camellia bushes, lilac, orange and lemon trees, sturdy oaks, and flowering acacia and pine trees. The Barretts modeled their dream home after the Victorian-style Italianate architecture popular in the 1870s and 1880s. This architecture was inspired by the forms and ornaments of the 15th- and 16th-century Mannerist periods, as well as by Baroque Italian design. Although Casa Madrona - as it later came to be known -- encompassed 6,600 square feet, it only cost $7,500 to build - a sum that would barely cover bathrooms renovations today! In 1906, after moving across the Bay to Oakland, Barrett sold his home to attorney John Patrick Gallagher - who converted it into the original Casa Madrona Hotel. For nearly 40 years, it was a very successful Bay Area bed and breakfast and hotel. In fact, during his ownership, Gallagher constructed five new cottages, or outbuildings, to accommodate demand. In the early 1940s, the Gallaghers sold Casa Madrona to Floyd Allensby, a San Francisco real estate broker and hotelier. During World War II, the property was used as temporary lodging for military families in transit. After the war, however, it fell into disrepair, and became a "crash pad" for city's burgeoning "beatnik" population. Mattresses were flung on doors in the bedrooms, paint was peeling off of the walls, and rain leaked through the roof and around the windows. But salvation came in the form of a French family. Robert Deschamps, his wife Marie-Louise, and their children, Marie-France and Jean-Marie, immigrated to California in 1959. Upon arrival in Sausalito, they saw an advertisement seeking a manager for Casa Madrona. Intrigued, they responded, fell in love with the property, and took over the lease from Floyd Allensby. The family closed the hotel, evicted the beatniks, and began extensive renovations. Casa Madrona soon gleamed once again, and business was better than ever. The Deschamps also opened Le Vivoir Restaurant onsite. The eatery instantly garnered critical and commercial praise and drew celebrities such as Dick Van Dyke, Carol Burnett, Warren Beatty, and the rock band Pink Floyd. But disaster struck in 1973. Casa Madrona's foundation was severely damaged by a series of mudslides, declared unsafe by city officials, and scheduled for demolition. After years of legal wrangling, attorney John Mays took charge of the mansion and grounds in 1976 -- vowing to restore them to their former splendor. During the successful restoration process that followed, 16 hillside cottages were added to the property. In 1980 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a treasured landmark. In November 2003, the historic hotel saw the addition of Poggio Trattoria, increased the number of hotel rooms from 34 to 63, and the addition of a spectacular 3,000-square-foot spa, a boardroom, a private dining room and three new function rooms. In 2010, MetWest Terra began ownership and management, completing a full renovation on the hotel, blending together its rich history with contemporary design and modern luxury. Enhancements were made to the spa, hillside cottages and historic Mansion, restructuring and redesigning its 11 rooms including the new, stand-out 5,000-square-foot Alexandrite Suite, seven upper hillside cottages and the 1,700-square-foot Junto event space. Today, Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa exemplifies innovation, technology, luxury, service & style, while staying true to the property's historic roots.
