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.

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

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.

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.
