San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2007
This winter, visitors to Point Reyes and the San Mateo Coast can take advantage of weeknight special offers at both the Point Montara Lighthouse Hostel and the Point Reyes Hostel. Travelers visiting on weeknights can stay one night and get the second night at half-price, Sunday through Thursday, from November 4, 2007, to February 28, 2008, excluding federal holidays. Guests should call the hostels directly to book reservations at the discounted rate: (650) 728-7177, Point Montara Lighthouse Hostel; (415) 663-8811, Point Reyes Hostel.
Offer applies only to stays of two or more consecutive nights falling Sunday through Thursday. Offer does not apply to groups of eight or more.
Perched on a cliff overlooking the Pacific, the Point Montara Lighthouse is a unique coastside destination 25 miles south of San Francisco and 7 miles north of Half Moon Bay. The hostel is both a secluded retreat and a gateway to outdoor adventures including surfing, swimming, kayaking, windsurfing and horseback riding. Guests are accommodated in both shared and private rooms in the former Coast Guard quarters, and enjoy cozy lounges, a secluded beach cove with tide pools and landscaped native plant gardens. Amenities include DSL Internet and free WiFi, on-site laundry, free parking and an espresso bar.
For travelers roaming northward from San Francisco, the Point Reyes Hostel offers an escape into the unspoiled coastal wilderness of the Point Reyes National Seashore. The only lodging facility within the 70,000-acre National Park, the Point Reyes Hostel is a Certified Bay Area Green Business, and its rustic, ranch-style buildings offer affordable, shared accommodations (with one private family room) where every window looks out onto the lush West Marin landscape. Visitors can bike or hike through 140 miles of trails by day, and return in the evenings to the fire-lit hearth of the hostel's guest lounge or cook a hot meal in the fully equipped kitchen.
The Point Montara Lighthouse and Point Reyes hostels are operated by the Golden Gate Council of Hostelling International USA, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting intercultural understanding, environmental stewardship, and world peace through travel. The Point Reyes Hostel is an Authorized Concessioner of the National Park Service.
