Spencer House is a true Bed and Breakfast in a beautifully restored Victorian mansion on Historic Millionaire's Row. Our location is close to Downtown within walking distance to Perry Square, Gannon University and a number of wonderful restaurants and attractions. We are also a short drive to Presque Isle State Park and it's 13.5 mile multi-purpose trail and award winning beaches and also Lake Erie Wine Country, the largest grape growing region east of the Rockies with it's wine trail of over 20 wineries, many of which are award winning. Built in 1876 as a wedding gift, you'll feel welcome as soon as you enter the front door. The solid brick home with elegant original woodwork throughout provides for a comfortable and quiet atmosphere for you to be able to relax and enjoy your time here. As a true Bed and Breakfast a full, home cooked, hot breakfast is included in your room rate. All rooms have a private bath, cable television, free wireless internet and individual controls for heat and air conditioning. Off street parking is provided and you can walk to many local restaurants and attractions.

Amazing Bed and Breakfast. A must visit if you are heading to the Erie area. A beautiful home with attention to original detail throughout. Knowledgeable owners who share, interesting, in-depth history of the home. Breakfasts are delicious with generous portions. The home is very well maintained, clean and within walking distance to so much in downtown Erie (locally owned restaurants, the Gannon University Campus, nearby sporting venues etc.) A ten minute drive to near-by Presque Isle. Rooms are spacious, off street parking options, Wi-Fi, a large porch in the front for outdoor seating/relaxation. I have stayed at many Bed and Breakfasts over the last 10 years and this by far, has been my favorite. Will definitely be returning. Thank you Steve and Lisa for such wonderful

Thank you for the great review ! We enjoy sharing our beautiful Victorian home and its history with our guests. Our location close to many attractions and restaurants downtown along with being the closest Bed and Breakfast to Presque Isle State park and a big front porch for relaxing after your day makes us a great choice. We are honored to be your favorite out of many Bed and Breakfast that you have stayed at. We look forward to seeing you again.

My daughter was getting ready to start her post-college career, and really wanted a short beach trip. I wanted her to have her first B and B experience. Spencer House was perfect for both. Very easy, quick trip to Presque Isle beaches, and got to come back to a beautiful, comfortable home. My daughter is a breakfast lover, and raved about Lisa's strawberry waffles. We stayed in Nannys Room, which is very small and cozy. Has is own private hall and spacious bath with clawfoot tub. The bed was extremely comfortable. If you have COVID concerns, breakfast had 2 seatings and was socially distanced, and rooms are kept vacant for 24 hours between guests. Steve always was masked, and the perfect host. I especially appreciated the ability to control our rooms temperature. I've

Thank you for the great review ! We enjoyed having you and your daughter stay with us for your beach trip. Being the closest Bed and Breakfast to Presque Isle State Park makes it easy to be on one of the 11 beaches there within 15 min of leaving our front door. We often get comments on the comfortable beds and quiet rooms and are glad that you enjoyed that along with Lisa's Strawberry Waffles and felt safe with our COVID safety policies. We look forward to seeing you again on your next Presque Isle Beach Trip

As this was our first stay at a bed and breakfast, we truly did not know what to expect. From the moment we arrived, until our departure, we felt like welcomed friends and will be sure to return again in the near future. The Victorian home of Steve and Lisa is GORGEOUS and immaculate yet not "stuffy" at all. Sit on the furniture and make yourself at home! All protocols were followed by staff and guests, making us all feel safe and respected. The accommodations were spacious and the breakfast was absolutely delicious...the best I've had in a very long time! If you are on the fence, do yourself a favor and jump outside of your comfort zone. You won't regret it!

Thank you for the great review ! We value making our guests feel welcome from beginning to end and are happy to share our beautiful mansion as their home away from home. We are glad that you felt safe and enjoyed our home and the homecooked hot breakfasts that we served. We have had many first time Bed and Breakfast guests and they always leave asking why they always stayed in hotels before and often that Bed and Breakfasts will be their first preference in the future. We are happy that you jumped outside your comfort zone and look forward to having you stay with us again soon.

My husband and I visited for a long weekend getaway. We were not disappointed at all. The home is beautiful, and loved hearing the history from the hosts. Very clean, and we felt especially comfortable with the extra measures they were taking during this pandemic. The food was excellent! The hosts Steve and Lisa are down-home welcoming owners who will make sure that every need and detail is taken care of for you. Wish we could have spent more time on the wonderful front porch watching the world go by. We will look forward to that on our next visit for sure.

Thank you for the great review ! We feel that one of the things that sets us apart from a hotel is the personal attention that we can give to each of our guests. That combined with the quiet, comfortable rooms makes for a great experience that allows our guests to enjoy their time with us. We are happy that you also felt safe with our COVID safety procedures as that is important to having a relaxing stay. Our porch is always a favorite place for guests and we look forward to having you spend more time watching the world go by there on your next stay.
