The Spencer-Silver Mansion is a magnificent find where the Susquehana comes into one of the truly magnificent freshwater inland waterways, the Chesapeake Bay. Artisans, crafters, boaters, or just plain travelers will love the mansion, it's unique decor, and wonderful innkeeper Carol. A wonderful find! The pictures of the rooms do not do it justice. They are truly unique, intriguing, and... More

Unlike many such b&b's, Spencer-Silver is not terminally cute. It's authentic, lovely, full of charm, and presided over by a generous and caring owner, Carol - who seems to do most of everything to make guests feel comfortable and at ease. The Garden Room where I stayed is full of light (though able to be darkened at night and early... More

I've lost track of how many times we've stayed there. This time we had to make a last minute trip to DC and be based there for the duration. We couldn't stay at Spencer-Silver Mansion even on the first night down. But we wanted to, so we tacked an extra day onto the excursion and booked it if only for... More

We stayed at the Spencer-Silver Mansion in the dead of winter when all the tourist attractions in Havre de Grace were closed, and I must say, I would do it again in a heartbeat! The Mansion is a wonderful destination in itself, and with Carol's hospitality and beautiful restoration of the Mansion, we had a fabulous time simply relaxing in... More

We just returned from our second trip to the Spencer-Silver Bed and Breakfast in Havre de Grace. It is one of the most beautiful and romantic places we have ever been too! Carol, the owner, is a kind and thoughtful person who made us feel so welcome!!! Sitting by the fireplace in this home, especially with someone you love is... More

We had the most incredible experience meeting Carol, who is a fantastic hostess. The carriage house is EXTREMELY romantic, cozy and private! What a getaway! You won't be disappointed! For us, it was more than a dream come true! We came as guests and we left as friends! The mansion feels like home to us. Thank you, Carol!

My wife and I spent a wonderful 2 days at the Spencer-Silver Mansion while attending a wedding of close friends. Carol was a charming hostess. Breakfast was very tasty (and plentiful). Treats (cookies bake daily and chocolates) offered, what more need I say? She did not intrude but was always available to help guide us to charming points of interest... More

We stayed here for four nights and had a great time. The rooms were very spacious and clean; the owner and staff super friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts were amazing! Tea, coffee and cookies were available, which were much appreciated after a long walk around the harbour. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, felt very at home, and would definitely stay here... More

We had a trip down to Baltimore on the calendar and decided we needed to all take another day off and leave early so we could spend a night at the Spencer-Silver Mansion to unwind on the way down. Our third time there and wish it could have been more than one night but it soothed us wonderfully. The home... More

My husband took me to Havre De Grace for a birthday surprise get away! He chose the Spencer-Silver Mansion from hearing great things and it did not disappoint. Carol was SO great. She greeted us Friday night with fresh basked chocolate chip cookies and an abundance of tea options, she asked us what time we wanted breakfast (830) and showed... More
