“Beautiful House, Warm Hospitality”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

If you appreciate historic homes, this one does not disappoint. The massive, original oak woodwork throughout the first floor is stunning - exactly what you'd expect in a house of this vintage. I stayed in the Niagara Room and felt completely comfortable. The shower is rather small in this room, but acceptable. Breakfast was delicious. The proprietors, Fletcher and Joy, are lovely people who obviously take pride in their business. I recommend Spencer House B&B. I know I will stay there again next time I'm in Erie. By the way, the location is great if you need to be close to downtown. Nice restaurants are within easy walking distance. I especially liked Molly Brannigans on State Street.

The new owners of Spencer House greeted us warmly and made our stay in Erie wonderful. Having owned the B&B now for just a few weeks, they are in the midst of painting the exterior, doing additional restoration of this beautiful Victorian home, and considering new wall papers for some of the public spaces. The rooms have been redone, we were told (having not stayed there previously). My room, the Presidential Suite, was exceptional large and comfortable, with a nice bath (which has a lot of the original features). The B&B was very reasonably priced and included WIFI. Breakfast was a treat -- cinnamon chip pancakes (yum!), eggs, freshly cut fruit salad (you'll be asked to guess the secret ingredient), and wonderful potatoes -- all in the right portions and served beautifully. They have also thoughtfully researched and appear to be continuing to research the history of the home.

Our work in Erie will be going on over the next year, and members of our team hope to stay there again.

Room Tip: As with all B&Bs, rooms vary considerably. Look at the available rooms and ask the owners.
