    Don't miss this beautiful home of George Marston and his family. Lovingly taken care of by San Diego's premier preservation organization, Save Our Heritage Organisation, this is a not to be missed visit while you're in Balboa Park. Don't miss the gift shop located in the old carriage house. Nice souvenirs and gifts. Not the usual tacky stuff.

    Beautiful woodwork and interesting history. Our particular guide didn't have all the facts or details memorized and rambled. We felt we missed some information. It gives a "look into a time gone by".

    My wife and I were riding our bicycles in the area and decided to take a close look at this large historic house.The residence sits on an elevated site with excellent views particularly from the rear.Built in 1905 it was home to the wealthy Marston family of San Diego for many years.A guided tour is available which could be quite fascinating.It's a very interesting looking house.

    A hidden gem on the edge of Balboa Park. 1905 house of the San Diego Marston family that owned a Dept store here in San Diego. Guided tour is 45 minutes and costs $15 with various discounts available.

Where to stay in San Diego

Offering accommodations at a wide range of price levels, San Diego is one of the easiest cities to stay in, regardless of whether you're simply passing through or hanging around for a long vacation. If you don't mind splurging, book your stay at a luxury downtown hotel or a lavish bayside resort. You can also rent a spacious private cottage within walking distance of the city's popular beaches. For a more affordable alternative, try a family-friendly hostel or quaint inn in a quiet residential area.
