More About East Brother Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast:

East Brother Light Station has been an active lighthouse for more than 133 years. In the 1980s, the bed and breakfast was opened as a way to earn additional money for maintenance of the lighthouse and related facilities.

Guests meet a boat from East Brother at the Point San Pablo Yacht Harbor promptly at 4 p.m. Accessing the island requires guests to climb from a bobbing boat up a vertical ladder which ranges in height from 4 to 12 feet, depending on the tide.

Showers are available only for guests staying more than one night (and only one room is available for multi-night stays). All available fresh water on the island is collected in a 50,000-gallon cistern.
