Wonderful hosts who went over and above to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Beautiful rooms, quiet neighbourhood and found delicious trendy restaurants around the corner. Highly recommend the Parsonage for your stay in san fransisco!

We had the opportunity this summer to spend 3 days at The Parsonage with another couple who are dear friends and the innkeepers Joan and John. The couples, we were all celebrating 30th anniversaries. The ambiance and charm of this Victorian home is one that everyone needs to experience. The Parsonage is located in a perfect location where just a... More

if you want to stay in a completely different place, where nothing is comparable with standard hotel chains, stay here. It is lovely B&B in central location close to public transportation. Great coffee in the morning, as well as changing breakfast menu every day. Internet is good. The bed was a bit screechy and too soft for my liking, but... More

If you like beautiful and unique accommodation that's hosted by wonderfully helpful and charming people, this is the one. It's a taste of the real vintage San Francisco, and it's the complete antithesis of all the identical and soulless ticky-tacky chain hotels where you could be just anywhere. We stayed three nights in the Lagan suite, which was lovely, very... More

My husband and I have just spent 4 wonderful nights at The Parsonage. We are very new to staying at B&Bs previously only staying in hotels...but we have now been converted thanks to the amazing hospitality of John and Joan. The house is just gorgeous and very well located. Breakfast was one of the day's highlights...with great food, surroundings and... More

We had an amazing two night stay at The Parsonage- what a beautiful property! We stayed in the Alma Spreckles, which was huge with a beautiful four poster bed. The house has such lovely character. The owners were away at the time so we were looked after by a very kind, knowledgable and helpful gentleman who was looking after the... More

The Parsonage is like an American Downton Abbey. Its a visit back in time, to a lovely home with a parlor to sit in, decorated with fireplaces of marble and gilt, and run by a hospitable and nice couple, John and Joan. The breakfasts they serve are amazing. One day was a mini souffle with strawberries, the other was sour... More

With The Parsonage we had a great start into our southwest USA vacation. It is easily to be found coming from SF airport. John greeted us at the door and welcomed us heartily to his B&B. After he brought us to out room he realized that we were absolutely tired and invited us for some tea, cheese and bread into... More

From the beautiful comfortable room, to the wonderful breakfasts every morning (John is an amazing chef), to the fabulous hosts John & Joan who were so welcoming - it was an absolute pleasure staying there. I was made to feel at ease and enjoy their beautiful home -... 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.
