About The Parsonage

The Parsonage Inn in San Francisco, CA

In 1982, Joan Hull and John Phillips became the second family to own this historic landmark Victorian home (formerly the McMorry-Lagan residence). The charm of the house was irresistible with generously proportioned rooms, Carrera marble fireplaces with original over-mantels and rose brass chandeliers. Over the years, they have gently coaxed the house into the 21st century adding bathrooms one by one, installing an elevator, and creating guest rooms with the charm of a more gracious era as well as modern amenities. Since 1995 John and Joan have been welcoming travelers into their home and honing their skills as breakfast cooks and innkeepers.

Delicious, multi-course breakfasts are served each morning in the dining room. At the end of the day, returning guests are welcome to a tray of brandy and chocolates in the parlor.


The Parsonage Inn is located at the corner of Haight and Laguna streets, a short walk from the Hayes Valley district of shops, 80+ restaurants, and major cultural attractions. We recommend coming from the San Francisco or Oakland airports by taxi, shuttle or BART.
