This historic house from 1905, home of San Diego civic leader George Marston, is considered to be an exemplary example of the Arts and Crafts Movement style of architecture. Built by famous architects, furnished by famous interior decorators, and still full of artefacts from the Marston family, the house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Outside, there are nearly five acres of gardens, which are part of Balboa Park. Lush with many exotic flora and flowers, and beautifully maintained, the gardens are a popular place to get married.

  • Great example of a Craftsman house. The tour guide gave an enlightening account of the family who were remarkable, inspiring people.

  • I love this place. If you just went for the house alone, it's an amazing piece of architecture on it's own, but combine that with the fact that it was owned by the man who made san diego what it is today and the history it flat out incredible. The old photos, the views from it. It really is a unique piece of San diego history. Balboa park was the house's actual backyard.

  • Beautiful example of early 20th century arts & crafts architecture, shown by a highly informed tour guide. A low-key, quiet, uncrowded attraction that isn't for everyone, but we enjoyed it very much.

  • We were fortunate enough to have a gentleman who had lived in the house as our tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about preservation. This added an extra level to our visit. As said elsewhere, the gift shop and personnel were also a treat.

  • A beautful house and trip back in time. The atmosphere is beautiful and peaceful.
