After some thorough research, my wife and I stayed here for a weekend in mid-October. The accommodations could not have been more perfect. The house was beautiful. The breakfast was fantastic. And Fletcher and Joy were wonderful hosts. They helped us with some ideas of places to go while we were in Erie. Will definitely stay at the Spencer House...

If you are visiting Erie, or passing through, I highly recommend the Spencer House. This B and B is in a beautifully maintained and restored Victorian mansion on millionaires row. The inn is convenient to Erie sites, such as Presque Isle State Park, the Maritime Museum and the Greenfield basket company in North East. The hosts are extremely accommodating, helpful...

A nice stay in a beautiful old house. Our room was beautiful and comfortable. On Sunday afternoon we had a bottle of champagne sitting in the sun in the second floor portico. Does life get any better than that? Breakfast was great the next morning. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. I almost never give 5 star ratings, but the...

I decided to choose this B&B because of the comments regarding the friendliness of the owners. I was glad I did, because it did make the experience more personal. The house is gorgeous of course, and the owners are very proud and are happy to show you around and tell you the history. True, the uniqueness of the rooms means...

Spencer House is a restored mansion near everything you would want to see and do in Erie. Joy and Fletcher are gracious hosts who went out of their way to see that all of our needs were met. The accommodations are great, the rooms well appointed. Our stay was like traveling back in time. We highly recommend staying there.
