My wife and I visited Erie for the first time for an extended weekend of bird watching at nearby Presque Isle State Park. We chose the Spencer House because of its affordability and high ratings on Trip Advisor. In a word, this B&B definitely lived up to its high rating. When we arrived, Innkeepers Joy and Fletcher were there to... More

Dan and Gina, thanks for choosing us to stay with. It was so much fun having you here for a long weekend, and as you know, Fletcher was jealous of all your bird talk. I think next time he'll be going out with you! Don't worry, we'll keep him calm . Hope to see you again! Joy and Fletcher More

Staying here was like staying at a friend's old and architecturally interesting home. The Nursery room's old-timey dolls and stuffed animals added to the overall charm of the Victorian house. Such attention to detail in the decor and hospitality of the innkeepers helped make a welcoming visit. The cinnamon pancakes with bananas were very good.

Thanks so much for staying with us! It's great to know that our rooms are so quiet. By next summer our window replacement will be complete so outside noise will be less noticeable and all windows will have screens in them to allow the breezes to blow through the rooms. Hope to see you back soon. Joy and Fletcher More

I cannot think of one thing to complain about. I enjoyed every minute of my stay at The Spencer House. It was my very first stay at a B&B and what an impression it made!

We found the location was great for our first ever visit to Erie PA. Joy and Fletcher were enjoyable inn keepers to meet and talk with about the homes history. We're cat people so meeting their "family" made our visit all the more special. An excellent breakfast with a variety of items was provided each morning.

My daughter and I just returned from a 2 day stay at this most wonderful B & B. The food, accommodations and conviviality of the owners are beyond compare. We stayed in The Nursery.

I stayed at the Spencer House a few weeks ago by myself when I was traveling through to Canton, Ohio. Joy greeted me at the door by name and made me feel so welcome. I had laryngitis and she helped me make a hot cup of tea. I stayed in Mary's Room and it was beautiful. In this room the... More

This was mine and my fiancé's first stay for both of us at a B&B. First of all the Mansion was gorgeous, everywhere I looked was just beautiful. Spotless, clean in in wonderful condition.

First trip for just my husband and I in 4 years and wanted it to be special. Spencer House seemed perfect. We had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast and weren't sure what to expect, but it sounded just like what we wanted.
