Welcome to one of San Francisco's finest Victorian Mansion Bed and Breakfast Inns. Classical music, candlelight, and the fragrance of flowers set a mood that takes you back in time. Victorian photographs, ornate woodwork, oriental carpets, marble fireplaces, and an historic San Francisco library complete the setting. The Inn is in the City's sunniest residential neighborhood near The Mission Dolores, Noe Valley, the Castro, and the South of Market. Virtually all of San Francisco's attractions are within minutes by car or public transportation. In our grand double parlors we offer a generous breakfast buffet of fresh squeezed orange juice, fruit, home-baked breads, hard-cooked eggs, and gourmet roast coffee. Complimentary beverages and fruit are always available. Our guests enjoy the marvelous panoramic view of San Francisco from our rooftop sundeck. In our peaceful English garden we have a redwood hot tub sheltered by a jasmine-covered gazebo. The elegant guest rooms are unique and have been individually decorated with antique furnishings, fresh flowers and featherbeds. Our deluxe bedrooms offer whirlpool spa,and/or fireplace.

A beautiful building in an excellent location

4.0 on February 27, 2013

My wife and I stayed here in February and were a little sad to only be staying one night, as this is a lovely building with a friendly staff. We reserved a parking spot immediately after booking our room and that worked out excellently, since we could keep our car in a garage across the street and not have to worry about parking throughout our stay. The view from the roof deck is wonderful. There is a lot to do withing walking distance, and downtown is easily reached via public transit.

A very pleasant experience

My husband & I stayed a couple of nights in October. Perfect location to get to everything you'd want to see. Room was quite comfortable. Staff was so helpful and friendly. And breakfast was unbelievable! Was especially enjoyable to spend a leisurely breakfast with visitors from other parts of the world and the US. Would definitely stay here again.

Great breakfast buffet

3.0 on February 03, 2012

Large room with windows that opened, good because the room was stuffy at night. Plenty of hot water, however was disappointed in the bathroom toiletries, second rate at best. Bed was comfortable. Location on busy street in Mission District, parking is a headache. Great breakfast buffet, lots of choices and fresh fruit in abundance. Pricey stay.

very nice
