We enjoyed a clean, historical and comfortable stay. With offstreet parking and walking distance to restaurants, the Lake, shopping, Gannon U. and bars. What more do you need? We'll be back. Thanks Chris!

We had no trouble locating the George Carroll House and because they'd emailed our entry code before we left, getting inside was a snap. The room was exactly as advertised and pictured on line, but a bit spartan for my personal taste. Loved reading about the history of the home and eventually the B and B. Everything about checking in,... More

Perfect location to walk all over downtown Erie for a couples getaway. Prices comparable to a moderate hotel, but you can support a family-owned local business instead. Noise level of a typical city. Appreciated the unique code for access (no key or card to lose!). The family owns two B&Bs, but the other seemed further from the action.

My husband and I had a wonderful 2 day stay! We loved the location and room. It was nice to smell coffee already brewing as we walked down the steps in the morning. Thanks to Betsy for making our stay extra special! We will definitely be back for a weekend get-away in the near future!

We loved the half-block walk to the restaurant with so many craft beers on tap. We chose the Carroll House before to stay the night before our fishing trip and really liked it then. I am now looking forward to taking my wife there for a weekend get away.

For the 10th, 11th or maybe even 12th time we've stayed at the George Carroll House, we have been delighted. My family and I were there for 6 days and, as has been the case in previous visit, we were treated like family. Chris and Betsy are the best! Accommodating and friendly and never intrusive.

This was my first stay at the George Carroll House, and I loved it! The Inn Keeper was very friendly and welcoming (but not intrusive), and the building was well kept and comfortable. Clean room, hot shower, working WIFI, etc. And so close to downtown!
