The Spencer House is a grand old home graciously restored and transformed into an elegant bed and breakfast in an area known as Millionaire's Row. The neighborhood street is quiet and lined with beautiful homes and eye-catching architecture. Joy and Fletcher are welcoming owners/innkeepers and are obviously 100% dedicated to making Spencer House a relaxing haven for everyone entering its... More

Lots of space for parking, breakfast was DELICIOUS, the owners are very sweet and easy to talk to, we stayed in I think it was the captain's quarters? The bathroom was huge which was awesome! And my boyfriend surprised me by requesting rose petals across the bed! What a nice option to have as part of the bed and breakfast,... More

Spencer House has beautiful woodwork, is very clean and is nicely decorated. Owners, Joy and Fletcher are great! During our 3 day stay, Joy welcomed us at the door almost everytime we arrived back at the house. Fletcher created fabulous gourmet breakfasts each morning. The cats are no problem. We saw 1 cat for 1 minute in the 3 days... More

Beautiful historic home to enhance your trip to Erie. Excellent breakfast and accommodations. The house is absolutely gorgeous. Joy went out of her way to return my wallet that I left in a drawer. Great people, great place to stay.

This was our second visit to Spencer House. They have various rooms which are priced at different prices, usually lower than staying at a motel and also lower on weekdays than on the weekend. The breakfast is large and varied. Joy and Fletcher are fairly and helpful. The location is near to downtown Erie, Dobbin's Landing, and several excellent restaurants.... More

Spencer House is a grand house from the late 1800's, located among similar houses of the period about three blocks from the lakefront. The rooms are nicely furnished, and the hosts Joy and Fletcher were great, as was the breakfast. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Absolutely beautiful, historical mansion owned and operated by a couple who were delightful! Our room (the President's Suite), was large and very comfortable and breakfast was delicious and the perfect start to a busy day. Close to Presque Isle and Gannon, the next time we stay in Erie, it'll be at the Spencer House!

Beautiful place, excellent service, really couldn't be any better. Breakfast is awesome, beds are comfy, the rooms are beautiful and we'll maintained. Highly recommended Spencer House, for about the same as premium hotel room, you get an experience rather than just a bed.

My wife and I took a little weekend getaway to Erie and decided to be adventurous- try something new and stay in a B&B. That was one of the best decisions we made. Clean, comfortable, spacious and secure rooms. Lots of beautiful wood throughout the house which is immaculately maintained. Wonderful hosts who were always accessible. There is a huge... More
