The B&B is a beautiful home hosted by passionate owners. We enjoyed sitting on the porch, visiting with other guests while socially distanced at breakfast, and of course lounging in our room. The B&B is conveniently located near the Bayfront, and it’s just a short (10 minute) drive to Presque Isle where you can enjoy a variety of activities. We are already planning a fall trip to the area and we will definitely stay here anytime we are visiting the Erie area.

I don't know why we have never stayed at a B and B before but this visit was a wonderful introduction. We booked a one night stay in the Nursery. A two bed room with a private bath steps away. We were greeted by Steve and given a short history of the house. We had access to two rooms on the ground floor as well as the front porch where you can meet other guests. The bathroom was close and equipped with a nice tub, a window, and a pull-chain flusher (not seen since I was a kid quite a few years ago). Our room was spacious and bright and reasonably priced. The internet was good as was the cable. Breakfast the next morning was nice. I couldn't have done better myself. Steve waited on us like we were respected guests. Lisa prepared a nice meal. Also nice background music while we ate. I couldn't get over the feeling that we were staying in a museum or the home of a rich old relative. It was a nice feeling. Should we come back to Erie we will stay here again and in the meantime recommend to all we know. Their covid precautions were part of why we felt so comfortable. Thanks to Steve and Lisa. We wish you the best. Paul and Merrie
