We chose this B&B because we like Victorian/Edwardian properties with furniture to match and good facilities. It didn't disappoint. It is a short bus/tram ride from the centre (or a long-ish walk, which we did) but we like not to be in the centre of a city as it feels too built up. Everything about the place had an artistic...

We stayed here on recommendation. A lovely warm welcome from Joan, John and their dog Carson made for a relaxing visit. We stayed 1-5 July in the Julia Morgan room on the top floor. It was very comfortable with a spacious shower room ensuite. We arrived late at night with our suitcases and were so pleased that Joan had an... More

Looking for something different from the centrally located hotels we've stayed in previously, we looked for a B and B in a new neighborhood. We could not believe our luck when we arrived at a beautifully restored Victorian house in a lively and charming neighborhood filled with boutiques and great restaurants! The house is a treasure chest of wonderful art,... More

First time visiting San Francisco, decided to stay at the Parsonage. We arrived late Tuesday evening, and Joan greeted us at the door. We were given a quick tour, as she knew we must have been tired from our 5 hour flight from Michigan. It was wonderful that Joan and John, the innkeepers, had a "therapy dog" named Carson, a...

We were looking for a welcoming non-hotel lodging for visits to famiy, and weren't interested in airbnb. We happened upon the parsonage through a google map search and are delighted to say that we have found our new home away from home. Joan and John are wonderful hosts, breakfasts are delicious and their home is exquisite. The only challenge is... More

We've been coming here for a few years now and The Parsonage became our west coast home. It's truly THE best place to stay in San Francisco. They have an incredible breakfast, the most comfortable beds, a fantastic taste in furniture, a practical way of handling everything and the most amazing people. Also the location couldn't be better because it... More

My visit to the Parsonage was a last minute surprise versus staying in a hotel in the business district. It is located a few blocks off of the trolley and only few miles from downtown. It is also walking distance to fine dining areas and other shops. The staff and the dog "Mr. Carson" was very warm, accommodating and helpful... More

Amazing house. Amazing hosts. Amazing breakfasts. If you want a home away from home in San Francisco, look no further than The Parsonage. John and Joan and keep an absolutely beautiful traditional 4 level house in the Hayes Valley. There hospitality is second to none and I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

It was obvious, when arriving it was clear: Helpful and always friendly host. Lovely Interior. Great Location, nearby the Center and the Mission District - worthwhile for Shopping and enjoying the People on the Street.

Where to begin? I called Joan on Saturday (planning to arrive on Sunday). She manages to "move some things around" so that my daughter and I can have a convenient location while apartment hunting for her SF move. We are greeted warmly by Joan who shows us the first floor common areas and then escorts us up to our 3rd... 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.
