  • We tried to go on a tour at The Marston House, but they are in the process of an extensive re-roofing project, and are CLOSED, "until early June 2017, unless problems arise." They are still open for "...  more »
  • 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".  more »
  • We found out about this house from the list in the San Diego Family magazine, so went to visit. The house is only open on Saturday, Sunday and Monday Tours are given each hour and we were met at the d...  more »

  • 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.
  • If you're a San Diegan, or a regular visitor, you'd like to visit some of the local historical museums, such as this early 20th Century home.
  • 10/7/14 We recently stayed with a friend in San Diego who lives across the street from this home at Balboa Park. We walked past it several times as we walked her dogs and I really wanted to check it out. Unfortunately, the day we made it over to look around was the day we were leaving and had limited time. We were told the tours are guided and take 45 minutes. Declining the tour, we opted to walk around the pretty gardens instead. Before leaving the property we visited the gift shop. The woman working was very familiar with the famous homes near our house (Galindo House, John Muir's home, and the Bancroft Gardens). They had really great gifts in here, including unique vintage games, jewelry, and books. We'll definitely take the tour next visit, but I was glad we were welcome to walk around and see a little of the property on our own this trip.
  • Great tour, Great house, friendly people. The house has many innovative features. Must See.
  • House tour worth every penny! Really gives you an appreciation for Irving Gill's amazing craftsmanship and George Marston's civic heroics.
