My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights to visit the Erie, PA area. Joy and Fletcher were very accommodating for our late night arrival. The house is gorgeous and the neighborhood was nice and quiet. Breakfast was absolutely delicious! We will definitely stay here again when we come back to the area.

Spencer House has beautiful woodwork, is very clean and is nicely decorated. Owners, Joy and Fletcher are great!
