China Cabin - Tiburon, California

I'm slightly obsessed with this little gem of a cabin. Right accross the Bay from San Francisco it's a mini floating ballroom with beautiful gilded details like something from Versailles.

The China Cabin was originally the first class social saloon from the top deck of the SS China, a sidewheel steamer that traveled from San Francisco to the Far East for about twenty years in the late 1800s. It served as a private residence in Tiburon for a number of years and was restored to it's original splendor in 1978.

It has decks on three sides with glorious views of the San Francisco skyline. It only holds 55 guests for a seated dinner but can you imagine how stunning and original a wedding reception or rehearsal dinner would be in this space? I'm dying to work here...
