Why We Highly Recommend Spencer House Bed and Breakfast:

Couples, friends, and families with older children are sure to enjoy an old-time-luxury atmosphere and a warm ambiance, while still in proximity to local attractions such as museums, shopping locations, live theater, Erie Zoo and much more. Great attention to detail and always clean, Spencer House is so much better than a cookie-cutter hotel. Great location, and interesting historically. In addition, most bed and breakfast places offer a good breakfast, but the Spencer House serves a great one. Recipient of TripAdvisor's "Certificate of Excellence" for 7 consecutive years, it is easy to see why Spencer Bed and Breakfast has been named the number one bed and br4eakfast in Erie by industry experts.

The Rooms

In addition, all the amenities for the modern travelers are included in the guestrooms such as an additional source of heating in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. Guests can relax and enjoy the parlor, library, second and third-floor solariums, and front porch. Complimentary beverages are always available, and free Wi-Fi is accessible in every room and throughout all the common areas.


This large 3rd-floor room was probably used by the head of the household staff. In the 1920s, an in-room bathroom was added, and in the 1940's, this room served as one of the master bedrooms. The original marble sink, a lovely window seat, a large flat screen TV, and nice sitting area provide you with plenty of amenities for your comfort. We think this room is too luxurious to be called the “Servant's Quarters with the beautiful king size bed,” so we have taken the liberty to name it the "Spencer Suite."


The Captain's Quarters on the 3rd floor is named for the captains of industry that have made Erie such a great waterway. A king-sized bed in a room filled with old world charm gives way to an oversized bathroom complete with a 2-person Jacuzzi and separate shower


This spacious room on the 2nd floor was the original master bedroom of the house. However, there was a time when William Spencer's uncle inhabited that room. He was a Civil War veteran, and due to a war injury, could not be exposed to sunlight. A wardrobe was built over the bay window in the room and was not removed until 1991 when the windows were exposed again. The bathroom is also not exactly original—it was once a closet. The bath with tub and shower was built in the 1920s for Mrs. Spencer. The fixtures and tile are original. This room offers a king-sized 4-poster cherry bed, nonworking fireplace, and seating area.


Mary's room is named for William Spencer's wife, Mary Dupuy. We don't know if she kept a separate room, but if she did, this hand-carved 1880s antique queen bed would have been inviting and comfortable. Two floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto the front. Two former closets now serve as a private in-room bathroom.


This 2nd-floor room is the former nursery for the Spencer children. This lovely room has a nonworking fireplace with a beautiful inscribed mantle, an original armoire, as well as two full-sized beds. The private bathroom is located just outside the room and is the original bathroom to the house. This bathroom offers an old-fashioned pull-chain water closet and king-sized clawfoot tub with shower.


Around the corner from the nursery, the nanny would have her own room and bath. This room is tucked nicely in the back of the house and is private and cozy. The room features an original marble fireplace (although no longer working), and a queen bed. The curtained off, the semi-private hallway is lined in exposed original brickwork. The private bathroom is located in the hall and features a clawfoot tub with shower.
