We stayed at Spencer House a few years ago and decided to go back the first weekend in May, 2017. What a great experience! The house is a meticulously maintained and updated Victorian mansion, visually rich and ornate. Our hosts, Joy and Fletcher, were wonderful. Everything is pristine clean, and the food is tasty, healthful, and beautifully presented. This is...

Joy & Fletcher are great hosts! Always a warm welcome! Awesome B&B with beautiful rooms! And the breakfasts are always excellent! We try to get here at least 2-3 times a year even though it is only about an hour from home. And Erie has some much to offer for its size. Presque Isle State Park is wonderful and absolutely...

This B&B stay was a Christmas gift from our children. Our room was beautifully appointed, with a private bath and Jacuzzi. The woodwork in this home is gorgeous. Joy and Fletcher were the perfect hosts, and served excellent breakfasts, along with great ideas on things to do in the surrounding area and good conversation.

We stayed this weekend at Spencer House and it was a wonderful experience! The B&B owners are exceptionally friendly, and the accommodations are quite nice. We stayed in the top floor Spencer Suite which was gorgeous, with a large bed, natural light, a large shower, and television and couch. It was very comfortable, easy to control the temperature, and we...

Spencer House is an absolutely beautiful old house, lovingly restored & cared-for by it's proprietors, Joy & Fletcher. It has all of the history but plenty of comfort, and none of the musty & worn feel other B&Bs sometimes have. I stayed in Mary's Room, which was spacious & clean, with a comfortable bed, two fan options, and an adjustable...

We had a very nice stay in the Mary room. Beautiful house, friendly service, delicious breakfast. Reasonably close to breweries and the park. And tons of cat sculptures/statues/pillows! We will definitely check the Spencer House for repeat trips to Erie.

We stopped in for an overnight while traveling. What a gem. Wish we could have spent more time. Highly recommend the Captains suite. The breakfast is as delicious as the presentation. Thank you to Joy and Fletcher. You have a very classy Bed and Breakfast.
