Wife and I stayed here for our anniversary. The house itself is gorgeous and the rooms are nice and cozy. Breakfast (and coffee) was also excellent. Joy and Fletcher are great hosts. Would recommend this place and hope to stay here again!

It has all of the history but plenty of comfort, and none of the musty & worn feel other B&Bs sometimes have. I stayed in Mary's Room, which was spacious & clean, with a comfortable bed, two fan options, and an adjustable...

We had a very nice stay in the Mary room. Beautiful house, friendly service, delicious breakfast. Reasonably close to breweries and the park. And tons of cat sculptures/statues/pillows! We will definitely check the Spencer House for repeat trips to Erie.

We stopped in for an overnight while traveling. What a gem. Wish we could have spent more time. Highly recommend the Captains suite. The breakfast is as delicious as the presentation. Thank you to Joy and Fletcher. You have a very classy Bed and Breakfast.

After some thorough research, my wife and I stayed here for a weekend in mid-October. The accommodations could not have been more perfect. The house was beautiful. The breakfast was fantastic. And Fletcher and Joy were wonderful hosts. They helped us with some ideas of places to go while we were in Erie. Will definitely stay at the Spencer House...

If you are visiting Erie, or passing through, I highly recommend the Spencer House. This B and B is in a beautifully maintained and restored Victorian mansion on millionaires row. The inn is convenient to Erie sites, such as Presque Isle State Park, the Maritime Museum and the Greenfield basket company in North East. The hosts are extremely accommodating, helpful...
