Where do I start? Joan and John have created, truly, one of my favorite places to stay on the planet. The home is gorgeous and the rooms are warm and cozy. Don't even get me started on the breakfasts. Made from scratch every morning, it'll be the highlight of your day. I travel to SF once or twice a year... More

Lots of personal attention. Our good friends stay here all of the time and highly recommended The Parsonage to us because of the accommodations, the good food, and the friendly and personal service provided by the owners.

The parsonage was very enjoyable, we took our belated honeymoon at the parsonage! Breakfast was an event everyday! The food was fantastic! The company we shared was so special even the dog that lives there was enjoyable! Would recommend to friends.

Hosts Joan and John, and their assistant Matt, were fantastic. The accommodation was excellent, the hospitality warm and the breakfasts absolutely delicious. To have bread from Tartine for breakfast was an unbelievable treat for someone who had come from the UK to tour the bakeries of San Francisco in search of the perfect sourdough. The location is near Hayes Valley,... More

At the end of our three-week stay at the Parsonage, I can say in all honesty that I have never felt sadder to leave a place. San Francisco is a wonderful city, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there, but the one thing that made the trip so special was the Parsonage. It is an extraordinary house, large and bright,... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Parsonage, a beautiful San Francisco Victorian home tastefully decorated. The room we had was on the 2nd floor was big enough with its own bathroom again every detail of its decoration was a piece of conversation. Our innkeeper, Matt who was filling in for Joan and John was very gracious and courteous, always at... More

Fond memories last a lifetime and we will remember forever our stay at The Parsonage for a 20th wedding anniversary trip. Joan and John were so welcoming the moment we set foot in the door. The house is stunning with its architectural details, and the parlors and other public rooms warmly invite you with their books and beautiful art and... More

My Husband and I spent a wonderful weekend at The Parsonage! Joan and John are so welcoming and knowledgeable about SanFrancisco. I loved waking up to their friendly smiles and delicious breakfast. The property is beautifully maintained and I felt like royalty coming home to such a gorgeous establishment every evening. Thank you John and Joan!

Great Hayes Valley location, easy access to Muni for travel throughout the city, We rode muni metro everyday for easy access to Moscone Center. Overall, the accommodations were very good. Breakfast the first 3 mornings was a bit too sweet, lacking much protein. On day three we requested and received delicious scrambled eggs. and on the final morning we were... More

I took my 69 year old mother for a three day trip to San Francisco in July. Her one request was for a Victorian B & B. Well, she got that and more. John and Joan's home is elegant and comfortable and their warm service and assistance so helpful. John pointed out the convenient bus stop right outside and talked... More

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighborhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
