“Ideal Location”

Our Bed and Breakfast Inn is ideally located in San Francisco’s Gay and Lesbian influenced Castro neighborhood, only a few steps away from the subway, streetcar and bus lines. Housed in a 1900 Edwardian, the Inn’s decor is a blend of handcrafted bentwood willow furnishings, antique dressers, armoires, and cozy duvets, with hundreds of books to peruse when you’re not exploring the city and the Bay Area. Parking is available at two neighborhood parking garages nearby. We can direct you to them when you arrive.

As a European-style, shared bath inn, our accommodations consist of rooms offering private vanity sinks as well as Kimono bathrobes, fine soaps, bath gel, and shampoo. Other room amenities include a direct dial telephone, voicemail, mini-fridge, cable TV and both wireless broadband internet and data port. Eight individual water closets and shower rooms are conveniently distributed throughout the inn, and each is a self-contained unit for full privacy.
