We stayed here a couple weeks ago for one night. Lovely historic home on quiet street. Delicious as well as creative breakfast and comfy spacious room. Inn keepers were very friendly and helpful making us feel at home immediately.

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.

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,...

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...

Thanks for the wonderful review! We try very hard to keep our guests happy and keep the cats away when necessary, though they do try hard to keep everyone entertained. Fletcher and Joy

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....

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.
