The decor is unique and very interesting to take in all it's intricacies. The hosts Steve and Lisa were most helpful and had great tips for things to do in the area. The bike riding around the Isle was lovely and there was even a stop at Sara's for great ice cream. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a nice day visit.

Thanks for the great review ! We are glad that you enjoyed the details of this grand Victorian Mansion. Presque Isle is the jewel of Erie with so many things to do and enjoy and we are glad to have been able to provide some recommendations for things to do. Many people don't realize that Erie not only has many local things to do but it also makes a great home base to visit other things like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame , Niagara Falls and the National Comedy Center. We look forward to seeing you again the next time you visit Erie

just an amazing time, rode bicycles, town was fantastic even with COVID inconveniences, went to Presque Isle - easy bike ride from house, gardens on premises are just gorgeous. Breakfast each day was incredible. Will be back soon, probably this summer. Erie is great town.

Spotless, beautifully decorated, and Covid-19 compliant. Mansion with original carved woodwork takes you pleasantly to another time. Delicious and plentiful breakfast. Great hosts. Easy to find. Highly recommend.

Thanks for the great recommendation Roger ! Of course in the "new normal" we take the safety of our guest very seriously and are glad that you found our precautions made you feel safe. We love sharing the beautiful quality woodwork with our guests as it is something that would be hard to replicate. We are happy that you enjoyed the home cooked breakfast and look forward to having you stay with us again.

If you want a quaint, clean and conveniently located place to stay in Erie, look no further!! I stayed at Spencer House this past weekend for a quick getaway. Steve and Lisa made me feel right at home. The old Victorian is gorgeous. My room was very spacious and comfortable. Steve greeted me and was extremely helpful throughout the weekend. The breakfast was delicious and they both went out of their way to accomodate for my gluten allergy. They also went out of their way to provide hand sanitizer in different locations and have adapted well to Covid times. I felt very safe there and highly recommend this place!!

Thank you for the great review Melissa ! We feel it is a great compliment to us as Innkeepers to hear that a guest felt at home. We always strive to provide a warm, welcoming and comfortable atmosphere so that our guests can relax and fully enjoy their time here. We enjoyed having you stay with us and were happy to provide you a delicious breakfast that you could enjoy without having to worry about your allergy. There is nothing more important than our guests safety and as a smaller lodging business, with our occupancy limits and size, we feel it makes it much easier to make sure our home is thoroughly cleaned to CDC and Dept. of Health Guidelines than a large hotel with many people. We are glad that our efforts made you feel safe. We look forward to having you stay with us again when you visit Erie.
