I would say five stars is not enough for this gem. We stayed here on a short trip to Erie. We stayed in the Captains room which has an absolutely amazing Nautical decor. The bathroom is huge and beautiful with a huge jacuzzi tub with candles and salts provided for relaxation. The owners Joy and Flecther make you feel like... More

For my boyfriend's birthday, he took me to his hometown of Erie to show me all of his funny stories growing up. We stayed at the Spencer House B&B, a first B&B for both of us. The charm, history, and elegance of the home exceeded all expectations! Even though there were other guests staying, the quiet atmosphere made us feel... More

My wife and I saw the Spenser House and looked online for reservations. They fit us right in. The house is absolutely gorgeous with beautiful antique woodwork, and a nice homey feel. The best part was each morning having Fletcher cook something delicious. Joy is the most gracious hoist and is very knowledgeable about the history of the home and... More

Hola all, This is our 4th visit to Spencer House and we can't say enough about the warmth and hospitality of Fletcher and Joy. We feel greeted as friends, have wonderful sleeps and most importantly, delicious breakfasts. Oh, the breakfasts! Fletcher's pancakes, french toast and waffles are delicious. The hosts even make notes on you so you are served your... More

Lisa and Trish, It's always so much fun when you two come down to visit! Thanks for the wonderful review. Next time you come, the parlor will be finished--it's coming along nicely and just about ready for me to stencil around the fireplace so we can get a good idea what it will all look like. See you next year,... More

Joy and Fletcher, you guys are great! Kevin and I had such a wonderful weekend get-away and you made us feel like family. Your hospitality and your warmth are outstanding. The breakfasts were something out of the ordinary .... flavour and presentation were tops. We will be back. Hugs to both of you.

This home was spectacular. The room was clean and beautifully appointed. The public rooms had fascinating woodwork throughout that was worth the trip. The owners have us directions to an organic market that was wonderful. I had to travel to Erie on business and this was such a pleasant place to stay if you are into the whole B&B experience....
