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

I stayed at The Parsonage recently and was absolutely delighted and enchanted. 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

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

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.
