“Fantastic B&B, Top-notch service”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

No detail is spared in this place - it's a charming house with fantastic hosts. The property is meticulously maintained, it has all of the amenities you'd expect and more (Flat screen tv in the room, free WiFi) and is near the beaches and Presque Isle. I had no idea what to expect and was pleasantly surprised with how beautiful the house was.

Room Tip: The President's Suite was excellent - ensuite bathroom, flat screen TV, couch, and desk. Everyth...

We were a little sceptical after having read a few review but we must say our weekend stay was amazing!!!!! Joy and Fletcher were very attentive, informative, and atune inn keepers. We had the opportunity to stay in the Presidential Suite. Very spacious. Speaking with Joy we learned oodles of the house's history from over a century ago to the history Joy and Fletcher have had as they have taken over and continue to revitalize the beautiful old house.
We were very comfortable in our suite: the temperature was very well regulated, there was plenty of hot water, the suite was clean, linens and terry was replaced each day "standard service" Fletcher says as we insist he not need bother, we had a brand new very comfy king size mattress, and the breakfast was plentiful and very flavorful.
Location of this house makes it another plus! It was very convenient to walk to many other destinations about town one would want to visit.
Make the Spencer House your B&B of choice while in Erie, PA.

Joy and Fletcher were perfect hosts -they are truly professional innkeepers. Really great people, always there when you wanted or needed something but they also made us feel like we had this huge, quiet, tastefully decorated, beautiful house to ourselves. Very good breakfast, and this house is comfortable and inviting to come back to each afternoon or evening. Big front porch, great neighborhood downtown for walking in this nice college town. Having grown up in Erie - I knew this would be a good location to stay -and it turned out to be double good because of our hosts!

Highly recommend staying at the Spencer House. Wonderful owners who really knew how to take care of their guests. Really made us feel welcome and recommended some great things to do. Great location, close to just about anything you want to do. Located on a beautiful street. Gorgeous well kept rooms and a fantastic breakfast! Will be returning to stay here on any return trip to Erie! Thanks so much Joy and Fletcher.

Booked a 1 night stay with my girlfriend for an impromptu weekend away and could not have been happier with our choice. Although we booked a smaller room, last minute electrical work meant that our original booking was unavailable so Fletcher and Joyce graciously upgraded us to the largest room in the house; we were given a tour however and we would have been happy with any room, they were all beautifully refinished!

Sunday morning breakfast was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed conversing with Fletcher and Joyce during our stay. Bed was warm and comfortable, rooms were very clean, shower was nice and hot.

Will definitely be referring friends & family!

Room Tip: All rooms were beautiful, but might have an eye on the room w/ the jacuzzi tub next time!

My husband and I "escaped" to Erie just after Thanksgiving and chose Spencer House partly because of the great reviews we read. We weren't disappointed. Fletcher had been working on Christmas decorations, he even had 2 trees set up with victorian decorations. The house was like a step back in time with the wonderful high ceilings and heavy doors, but it felt fresh and new. The hallways had been freshly painted from dark red to a soft coffee, and the new wallpaper was so rich. Joy has a collection of 19th century lithographs that are as old as the house which she hung up the 3rd floor staircase. It's worth going up just to see them!

We chose the Spencer Suite, which was also redone--the historic shower and tiles gave way to the most comfortable king bed and big TV. And breakfast--wow. Fletcher is an amazing cook.

We'll be coming back again, there's a beach and a zoo that weren't open, so there's a lot to do next time.

I stayed here with a co-worker for business in the Erie area. We had Mary's Room and The Nanny's Room. From the minute we stepped into the house, we felt immediately at home. Your hosts are very gracious. We were able to examine the lovely architecture and the personal touches that make the house a home. Fletcher cooks an amazing breakfast -- get his secret ingredient for the pancakes! We ate dinner at the Tap House on Joy's recommendation and were not disappointed. I would easily stay here, again. Avoid a night in a chain hotel -- treat yourself to The Spencer House.
