Jim & Suzanne's Victorian (B&B 1)

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Grove St, San Francisco, CA 94117, United States

The Space



For more than 15 years, Jim and Suzanne have been welcoming visitors from all over the world. We are happy to share our home with guests.

Originally built as a “workman’s cottage,” the remodeled Victorian is located in lively, popular neighborhood, with a wide choice of cafes and excellent, moderately priced restaurants. Centrally located, the house is served by five public transportation lines, which will take you downtown and to other attractive areas of the city in less than half an hour. Golden Gate Park and two other picturesque parks are within easy walking distance.

The charming upstairs guest room is nicely furnished in Victorian style, with a queen bed, large bureau, mirrored armoire and closet.

The adjoining parlor and living room offer additional space where guests can stretch out and relax. This space is completely private, for the exclusive use of guests. It is like having an entire apartment to yourselves!

The suite offers extra storage space as well as TV, DVD, and a library full of books. The parlor also has a comfortable double sofa-bed, which can accommodate two additional guests ($60 surcharge). There is a full, private bath in the hall, just steps away.

In back of the house is a lovely garden, full of flowers and butterflies--sometimes even hummingbirds!--where guests can stroll or sit when the weather is good.

There is free wireless Internet service throughout the house.

You can prepare your own breakfast using basic ingredients we provide (complimentary coffee, tea, milk, cereal, fruit), or items you can purchase at one of the many local gourmet markets.

This B&B can accommodate up to 6 guests per night. See our other listing, "Jim & Suzanne's Victorian B&B (2)" for a description of the downstairs room, and check calendar for availability.


ADVANCE BOOKINGS: We don't usually accept bookings more than four months in advance.

CHECK-IN / CHECK-OUT: Check-in time is 3:00 PM or later; check out by 11:00 AM.

SMOKING -- This is a non-smoking environment, including front steps, back deck and garden.

PARKING -- We assess a $10 daily surcharge for parking in the driveway adjacent to the house. If you require parking, please check with us first as spaces are limited and assigned to visitors on a "first-come, first-served" basis.

PRIVACY -- We won't enter your room except in case of emergency or if you specifically request it. Housekeeping of your room is up to you!

LAUNDRY -- Guests who stay for a week or longer are welcome to use the in-house washer & dryer. At your request, we'll provide clean towels and change the bedding. For shorter-term visitors, there are several laundromats conveniently located 1 block away.

CHILDREN -- Our home, an authentic Victorian, is not "kid-proofed" for safety. It also contains some antiques and decorative objects. For these reasons, the environment is not really suitable for young children. If you will have your child or children with you during your visit, please let us know in advance.

Jim & Suzanne met back in the 60s at UC Berkeley; we recently celebrated our 40th anniversary. We have lived in various US cities and several European countries, so we enjoy meeting people from everywhere! In San Francisco, we love taking scenic walks, frequenting local cafes & restaurants, participating in community activities, and taking advantage of some of the Bay Area's great cultural & recreational resources.
