We stayed in room 1 which was very spacious. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was large and lots of light from the three windows. The house is just beautiful. We were within walking distance or short Uber ride to restaurants and bars. Breakfast was simple but good. We had a great stay in Erie. We would stay here again.

We've reviewed this property before, and we can't say enough about how good it is. It never disappoints whether it is the quality of the stay, the service, or the value. Clean, comfortable, and quiet yet right downtown. We go to Erie just to stay here.

Checking in late was a breeze. Very well maintained and clean all thru out. The room is unexpectedly big with nice leather chairs, flat screen tv (42", I think), big drawer, big closet with lots of hangers. Sheets and pillows are fresh and clean. The bathroom is such a plus: Lots of fresh, fluffy white towels and again, unexpectedly big.... More

The booking process online was amazingly simple, they emailed directions, room number and security code all to us. When we arrived we parked in the large off-street private parking lot behind the house. The security code we were given opens both the street door to the house and our room.
