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.

The B&B is a beautiful home hosted by passionate owners. We enjoyed sitting on the porch, visiting with other guests while socially distanced at breakfast, and of course lounging in our room. The B&B is conveniently located near the Bayfront, and it’s just a short (10 minute) drive to Presque Isle where you can enjoy a variety of activities. We are already planning a fall trip to the area and we will definitely stay here anytime we are visiting the Erie area.

Thank you for the great review ! The front porch is a favorite place for our guests to relax after a day at the beach, visiting wine country or visiting other Erie attractions. Our location makes for a great homebase for a visit to Erie and we look forward to seeing you again in the Fall.

I don't know why we have never stayed at a B and B before but this visit was a wonderful introduction. We booked a one night stay in the Nursery. A two bed room with a private bath steps away. We were greeted by Steve and given a short history of the house. We had access to two rooms on the ground floor as well as the front porch where you can meet other guests. The bathroom was close and equipped with a nice tub, a window, and a pull-chain flusher (not seen since I was a kid quite a few years ago). Our room was spacious and bright and reasonably priced. The internet was good as was the cable. Breakfast the next morning was nice. I couldn't have done better myself. Steve waited on us like we were respected guests. Lisa prepared a nice meal. Also nice background music while

Thanks Paul and Merrie for the great review ! From the moment a guest makes a reservation to the moment they check out we do our best to make their stay a memorable experience whether they are having their first Bed and Breakfast experience or have years of Bed and Breakfast stays under their belt. We are glad that our Covid precautions made you feel comfortable and that our hospitality, rooms and breakfast made for a great first impression.
