This is the master bedroom in Historic Captains Quarters on former US Navy Shipyard at Mare Island
Please note that the couch folds into a bed but this is not a full-size bed it's rather short so anyone larger than 5 feet or so will have their feet sticking out.
We do have an air mattress so that we may comfortably accommodate four adult sized people in that room.
We also have an overflow sunroom that can be used that we convert to sleeping quarters at night and back to a public space in the day
We do host up to two other parties in this place. There is a room with shared bath upstairs and the Sunroom we sometimes use as an overflow space.
Here is some history on the Merritt Island US Navy shipyard, space it was the first United States Navy base established on the Pacific Ocean 1n 1854. It is located 25 miles northeast of San Francisco in Vallejo, California. The Napa River goes through the Mare Island Strait and separates the peninsula shipyard (Mare Island, California) from the main portion of the city of Vallejo. MINSY made a name for itself as the premier US West Coast submarine port as well as serving as the controlling force in San Francisco Bay Area shipbuilding efforts during World War II. The base closed in 1996 and has gone through several redevelopment phases. It was registered as a California Historical Landmark in 1960, and parts of it were declared a National Historic Landmark District in 1975.
In case you are interested, here is the official historic designation:
Mare Island Naval Shipyard has been in continuous operation since it was founded in 1854, and it has expanded greatly, both in acreage and in the number of structures within its bounds. Land reclamation projects and grants have increased the property to about 2,625 acres of dryland and about 1,890 acres of tideland. This large area holds several hundred buildings and other structures, including some from each stage of the shipyard's history. These edifices display a variety of architectural styles and building materials, and many are occupied by tenant com- mands. Among these units are the Naval Weapons Station, Marine Barracks, Nuclear Power School, Combat Systems Techni- cal Schools Command, and Naval Electronic Systems Command, Western Division.
Because of the size of Mare Island Naval Shipyard and the numerous 20th-century structures that are intermingled with the older ones, it is neither desirable nor possible to include all surviving historic edifices in
a single district. They form four distinct areas and have
a combined size of approximately 150 acres.
II. Area A. The most significant structures on Mare Island are in this district. Included are the oldest shops, some of the oldest residences, and the post chapel. The shop and maintenance facilities are situated in a security area, but some, at least, are connected visually with the dwellings. The boundary is drawn to exclude as many modern structures as possible, but the following nonhistoric buildings lie within the district: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), and 873.
Smithery (building 46). Now used as a pipeshop and adjoined to other, more modern, structures, this one-story, rectangular- shaped, red brick building was among the first erected by Farragut in 1854. It measures 260 feet long and 200 feet
wide and has a parapet gable roof, arcaded sides, and semi- circularly arched windows. The chimneys have been removed and the interior had been altered substantially, but the structure appears to be in fair condition.
Structural Shop, Pattern Shop, Sail Loft (buildings 51, 53, 55). These two-story, rectangular-shaped, gable-roofed, red brick buildings were constructed between 1854 and 1857. Two are 400 feet long, and one (55) is 324 feet long. The original first-floor window and door openings have been partially closed with bricks and boards, and considerable internal changes have been made.
