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

Let me start off with the fact that I very rarely write reviews as I am very particular about quality, and wherever I stay or eat for that matter, should be nothing short of exquisite, otherwise what is the point. John and Joan are masters of their museum quality albeit accessible and unpretentious domain. I've already said exquisite once so... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and I can't say that we had a good time. We were two couples. The rooms had very original names but I must say that they were not very clean and quite dusty. The furniture was old and cracky without a tv set or a coffee machine in order to make a... More

I found hosts John and Joan warm, interesting, and helpful I enjoyed the space, breakfast, and the central location, from which I walked to various places in the city, caught a bus one day, and used BART. I'll gladly return and will recommend this B&B to others. A side note: I had a training that was 1.7 miles from the... More

Everything you read here is correct. John and Joan are hardworking and attentive hosts, with the instincts to put guests totally at their ease. Joan is a dab hand with eggs at breakfast (chèvre soufflé with poached strawberries, pancakes, scrambled with bacon) and the Tartine bread is to die for. Wonderful location in the Lower Height meant that the buzz... More

My wife and I had a delightful stay at The Parsonage this past February. The location was ideal for us as it was walking distance to SF Jazz and some excellent restaurants. The Parsonage is a stunningly beautiful, older house with very comfortable accommodations. We stayed in the Julia Morgan Room which, though a bit small was very quiet and... 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.
