“Comfortable, clean, and charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

The Spencer House B & B in Erie, PA is comfortable, clean, and charming. Within walking distance from the downtown square, this Victorian home has been carefully maintained and restored. Our room was very quiet. The full breakfast was fresh and delicious. Hosts Joy and Fletcher were welcoming and helpful. We will stay again!

We were looking for an historic, beautiful place to stay to relax and enjoy the area for the day and night. The Spencer House was an excellent choice. Joy and Fletcher are terrific innkeepers and Fletcher is quite the chef! Our room was perfect, the surroundings beautiful, the area quiet, and the breakfast was wonderful!

This is a lovely B&B that has been cared for nicely. The current owners, Joy and Fletcher are friendly and hospitable and earn their title of Happiness Managers! We stayed in the President's Suite and it was charming and most comfortable. The extra sitting/reading room next to it, where there is the water cooler and fridge for beverages is an added bonus. And, we must not forget our fishing trip out on Lake Erie with Fletcher. Our goal was to not get skunked out and we each caught at least one fish, adding another state to our goal of 50 fished states. Fletcher is also a master in the kitchen as his breakfast was scrumptious and filling! If we are ever back in the area, we would definitely stay here!

We're so glad you had a good time, and also for the wonderful fish dinner on your way back through! Fletcher's been working on the boat all winter, a newly rebuilt engine and fuel line, and he's really excited about going on the Lake this spring. Hope that you'll be passing through Erie again!

We are seasoned bed and breakfast "stayers", and we loved this inn. The home itself is absolutely lovely, bedecked with lots of beautiful wood, architectural features, and plush bedrooms. The common areas are punctuated with Joy's absolutely stunning needlework, which is a delight. We stayed in the Spencer Suite, located on the third floor. It's a good hike up the steps, but it was good exercise, and well worth it! The breakfasts were delicious. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

The Spencer House Bed & Breakfast located in the heart of the city's historic “Millionaires Row.” We are from New York, it was our pleasure to stay one night at Spencer House, since we have been a big Bed & Breakfast fans. I couldn’t wait to tell everyone. Mr. and Mrs. Coleman provide excellent homemade breakfast and very comfortable room. The decoration of the house is increditable; I could not put my camera down....

Room Tip: Great value, excellent breakfast, quality room

Coming from Los Angeles, what a great way to see Erie , by staying in a B &B in the historic downtown area. Colemans provide a great hospitaity place and very comfortable. I am not used to how the peacefulness, as in L.A. it is usually helicopters and sirens, The smell of a homemade breakfast waiting downstairs was equally incredible, and delicious! The Coleman's are great hosts, and made me feel welcomed. and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone in the future.

Room Tip: I stayed in "Mary's Room" which for me being a big guy was perfect, however there are...

Our room in this beautiful house was amazing. It was very large with lovely furnishings and a very comfortable bed. The breakfasts provided by Joy and Fletcher were superb and very filling. The position in Erie was very close to restaurants, shops and Lake Erie and Fletcher recommended a restaurant for dinner that was good. We were very pleased we had chosen to stay here and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

Room Tip: The Presidents Suite is beautiful and very comfortable.
