Steve and Lisa have a beautiful B&B. They provided excellent accommodations and hospitality. The breakfast was wonderful especially the cinnamon chip pancakes! We loved biking through the state park as well as picking cherries at the local farm and of course our visits to several wineries. If you’re looking for a quaint getaway this is the place to stay. Thanks again! John & Barbara

My daughter and I spent three amazing nights at Spencer House in Erie, PA. The Bed and Breakfast home is absolutely amazing…the home is immaculate, and the Architecture is gorgeous. We were given a tour upon arrival and a brief history of the house. Steve and Lisa (the innkeepers) were very gracious and friendly. Without hesitation…I would highly recommend “The Spencer House” for your next vacation. My daughter and I have decided to make this a yearly long weekend…just to stay at this lovely bed and breakfast 😊

We had a wonderful mother/daughter trip to Erie. The highlight was our stay at Spencer House Bed & Breakfast. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and charming. It really to you back in time. The owners, Lisa and Steve were excellent hosts, and very informative of the history of the home. We can't wait until the next trip!

We had an overnight stay at this lovely property and wished we had more time to stay longer. Our room, The Presidential Suite was very spacious and comfortable. The Innkeepers, Steve and Lisa, show great care for their guests and the house itself; everything looks lovingly maintained. We enjoyed a hearty breakfast, cooked to order. Would highly recommend.

Perfect stopover stay on a long roadtrip. Gorgeous mansion on Millionaire's Row, tons of history and woodwork and 19th century character. We stayed in the Presidential Suite and slept like bank presidents dreaming of french toast!

This was our first trip to Erie. This house is beautiful and fascinating. Steve and Lisa made us feel welcome. All the oak trim was incredible. The breakfasts were delicious. Very comfortable and quiet. Easy access to Lake Erie activities. We toured the Maritime Museum was quite interesting. We are looking forward to a return visit. Nice to see all the restored mansions along West 6th street.

The Spencer House B&B was beautiful and the innkeepers were great. The breakfast was hardy and the innkeepers made sure we had anything we needed to make our stay comfortable – they were very thoughtful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. And the bed in the President's suite! My wife said it was the comfortable bed she's ever slept in her life.
