I was on my way to a small town in southwestern Ohio, and needed an overnight on the lengthy road trip. Erie looked about right, geographically, and the trip advisor reviews of Spencer house were positive, so this was my selection. When traveling solo, I sometimes choose a b&b if I'm feeling like a "welcome" rather than a hotel "check... More

We're so glad you chose to stop here on your drive. B&B's are like small homes away from home (and yes, sometimes mom is chatty ). Hope to see you again! Joy and Fletcher More

We were pleased that we paid the same for a bed & breakfast as we were paying for the hotels on this trip. The hosts were friendly without being overbearing. There is complimentary soda on the 2nd landing. Don't be afraid of the back room that has the bathroom down the hall. The whole area is curtained off, so you... More

This was an amazing birthday weekend. The owners are the sweetest and so thoughtful. The house was gorgeous and felt like a museum. We felt like royalty. The place was immaculately clean. The breakfast was beyond delicous. We stayed in the captain's quarters and the bed was so comfortable. This was a dream weekend.

We enjoyed our overnight visit to Erie and our lodging at the Spencer House. Located on a lovely street not far from the Bayfront the large house has 6 rooms for guests. We stayed in the Presidential Suite located on the second floor. It's a large room with an ensuite bath. We especially liked the breakfast which included pancakes, eggs,... More

My husband and I spent last night at the Spencer House. The room was great. The bed was very comfortable. Joy and Fletcher the owners are very hospitable. Their recommendations for dinner was right on. We would defiantly stay there again. Oh, the breakfast was delicious. 5 stars all the way around.

The owners, Joy and Fletcher were very friendly and helpful. The exterior architecture was very interesting and the interior was very well decorated with all period furnishings, accessories and curios - stunningly beautiful inside and out. This inn is situated in a well kept neighborhood with other large interesting houses - a good place to take a walk. All the... More

This is a beautifully restored mansion. It'right in a quiet downtown part of Erie, along Mansion Row. The innkeepers are a beautiful couple, who are knowledgeable about the area and the history of the home. The house is impeccable. Our room was comfortable and the bed was awesome. We slept like babies. The breakfasts are absolutely delicious. And the price... More

This B&B is welcoming and elegant and well situated within Erie. Presque Ile was a delightful surprise and is about 5 minutes drive away. The hosts are charming - just the right amount of conversation and interest to make us feel welcome, but nothing intrusive. The house itself was clearly built as a luxury home and has been well maintained.... More

Thanks so much for the wonderful review! You're right--when you need to put in a bathroom in a house almost 140 years old, you really have to use the available space even if it means sacrificing closets. Hope to see you both again! Fletcher and Joy More
