A very lovely experience. Very clean, especially in the midst of the Covid Pandemic. Excellent breakfast as well! The hosts were very gracious and friendly. It would be awesome to get snowed in at this place!!

My husband and I wanted someplace to relax, explore, and feel safe from COVID-19. We found all three in this lovely old Victorian mansion in Erie. Steve and Lisa were attentive and helpful. The Presidential Suite was spacious, very clean, and spoke to an era of grandeur. We started each day with a great breakfast before exploring Erie and its surroundings. We were so glad we chose Spencer House.

The house is gorgeous with so many cool and original details to sit back and enjoy, if you love old houses like I do! Every room and space in the house was neat and spotless. We stayed in the Spencer suite which had plenty of space and the great big shower was awesome! There is also many private sitting areas to sit and enjoy all throughout the house! The huge front porch was beautiful, we enjoyed an evening cup of coffee out there. The breakfast was delicious and was more than enough to keep us fueled for our day. This was my first b&b experience and I’m happy to have had it here!

This place is what every B&B should strive to be! Clean, beautiful, amazing food, great location and friendly informative hosts! We stayed in Mary's room for my birthday. After spending the day at the beach the house was a welcome relaxing place for the night. Comfy bed, and a front porch to die for! We shared a pizza on the porch that evening. It was a magical stay with a delicious breakfast in the morning. We will be back!
