We just spent two nights in the Presidential Room at the Spencer House B and B. It is a beautifully restored large Victorian home with beautiful wood everywhere, great furniture/fixtures, and efficient hosts who put out a lovely full breakfast that is prepared to order. They had no problem in accomodating a gluten free request with flavorful pancakes one day... More

Barak, thanks for the review! Fletcher can accommodate most diets with a little warning. Hopefully your ankle will heal up soon. With 12 plus foot ceilings, there are a few extra stairs with landings on each floor, but each step is a bit shorter to allow for women's long dresses in that long ago era. More

The Spencer House B&B is a beautiful house and we absolutely enjoyed every minute of our stay. Joy and Fletcher are awesome hosts and made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. Our room was lovely and breakfast was delicious (Fletches homemade sausage went well with his famous cinnamon chip pancakes!). We will absolutely be back and... More

Our stay at the Spencer House was great. The beds were very comfortable and the house is immaculately kept. Clean, clean, clean. Breakfast was delicious and we appreciated the variety of teas available at breakfast and upstairs. Parking behind the house was convenient, but there is plenty of room on the street in front of the house, as well. The... More

I stayed in the Captains suit while visiting in Erie for the weekend. I can't say enough about the welcoming environment and the fantastic service. Breakfast was terrific and posted the night prior. The bed was extremely comfortable and I slept great. Way better than any hotel and clean. I liked the easy location and parking offered in the back.... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights for the bike rally. Spencer House was the perfect choice! It was close to the rally, but yet far enough away that you don't get the traffic or the noise. The beds where so comfy, I didn't want to get up in the morning. But I had too, I didn't want to miss... More

We had a wonderful time staying at this B&B while our son was at Camp Woodward. The house is beautifully kept and it feels like you are stepping back in time. The breakfasts were delicious. Fletcher makes amazing strawberry french toast. Yumm! Joy and Fletcher are so down to earth, helpful, and kind. We felt very well looked after given... More

What a great place! We were absolutely amazed with the friendliness, the hospitality, the cleanliness, and the budget that is attributed with the Spencer House. The proprietors, Fletcher and his wife Joy, were the perfect hosts. As I walked in Fletcher was reading a book in the living room and was kind enough to give me a grand tour. Joy... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Spencer House B&B. Fletcher and Joy were great hosts, opening their beautiful home for a B&B experience! The house dates back to 1867, with time period feel and elegance. I stayed in the nursery room, which was so comfortable and very large. Breakfast was a treat! Fruit, yogurt, French toast, eggs, bacon, potatoes...all... More

Made this reservation late for graduation weekend in a college town, so had a small room (Nanny's), but it was nicely furnished/comfortable. The weather was apparently unexpectedly hot/humid for early/mid May, so the a/c was not yet in place in the room upon our arrival. While the ceiling fan helped, the small 2nd floor room (received the strong afternoon sun)... More

We stayed at Spencer House for four nights recently. Hosts Joy and Fletcher's Victorian House built in 1876 is truly amazing. They have an absolutely beautiful property. Every morning we had a wonderful breakfast. We would highly recommend this property. Don't miss this B&B if you are staying in Erie, PA.
