Spencer House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 7 Erie B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I stayed for one night at the Spencer House on August 19th. The hosts/owners (Fletcher and Joy) were friendly and knowledgeable. The house is a beautiful late 19th Century mansion that will just amaze you. You're located within walking distance to downtown Erie (restaurants, museums, attractions). My room was comfortable and spacious. If I'm traveling through Erie again, I would definitely stay here again. Oh yes, the breakfast is delicious and filling.

We enjoyed our room [The President's Suite], the breakfast was plentiful and yummy, the house was beautiful and the location was great. We had a wonderful mini holiday in Erie and The Spenser House was a big factor in that! We would certainly return!

Fletcher and Joy, the owners, make the guests feel right at home, but, in a pampered way. They were very helpful, rooms were furnished with antiques and were spacious; their restaurant suggestion was excellent. Breakfast was plentiful and hot.
I highly recommend this B&B and will return next summer ( if not before).
Make reservations ahead-this popular spot gets booked up!

Room Tip: look online for pics and prices for each room.

We are origianlly from Erie and now live in Salt Lake City. We love the location of the Spencer House because you are close to so much. We spent 10 wonderful days, 8 of those in the Presidential Suite and 2 in the Nursery. Joy and Fletcher are great hosts and they think of everything possible to make your stay perfect. The rooms are beautiful and it is so much fun staying in one of the old Erie mansions. Everything is immaculate. The highlight, of course, is the delicious breakfast served each morning. Fletcher goes all out with that and whether he is fixing his thick cut bacon or homemade sausage everything is done to perfection. It was such a treat. The waffles are heart shaped and the french toast is to die for.He makes perfect eggs and the list goes on and on. Joy serves and is so friendly, you will feel as though you have known both of them for years. The Spencer House is decorated beautifully and the house alone is a must see. It is quiet and peaceful and is a place we look forward to visiting again. There is so much to do in Erie, especially in the summer, and The Spencer House is an added bonus. Thank you so very much Joy and Fletcher, Jerry & Diane Hartline

The new owners, Fletcher and Joy, have upgraded the place and did it right. One of the better B&B's we've stayed in. Food is fresh and well prepared. Plenty of room and a decent spot close to many activities and restaurants.
