A warm welcome from the innkeepers who are attentive to your every need. Beautiful historic home, comfortable rooms, and excellent breakfast in the morning. Location is excellent, in the downtown area near the lake and only a few miles from Presque Isle State Park. I highly recommend!

Beautiful home, comfortable beds, delicious breakfast, and friendly hosts! We enjoyed our stay visiting with other guests and learning about the history of the home. My son and I had a restful stay in between a long drive from the East coast to the Midwest.

The perfect B&B experience in downtown Erie. Steve and Lisa were the perfect hosts and their breakfasts were a treat in the morning. Hearing about the history of the house made me appreciate my stay even more. I highly recommend for a quick getaway!

My husband and I stayed at the Spencer house Wednesday thru Saturday, we were very impressed by the beautiful home, the hospitality of the owners, and the amenities available. I would love to stay there for a week and just hang out in the house, it's amazing and comfortable. Every room is different, there are several sitting areas for guests, and plenty of water, soda, coffee, and tea available at all times. I can't say enough how awesome it was!!
