Welcome to The Spencer House Bed & Breakfast in Erie, PA!

Ranked # 1 on Tripadvisor

The Spencer House Bed & Breakfast is located at 519 West 6th Street in Erie, PA, in the heart of the city's historic “Millionaires Row." We're just a short walk to downtown Erie, Gannon University, Erie Insurance and their Arena, some of Erie's best restaurants, and the historic Warner Theater.

Bike or take a short drive to Presque Isle State Park, named the 2016 Best Freshwater Beach by USA Today.

One step through the beautiful arched front doors and guests quickly realize why The Spencer House is one of Erie's landmark Victorian mansions. Examples of the era surround you from the 12-foot ceilings and sculpted light medallions, to the incredibly detailed, handcrafted hardwood mouldings that grace the entire house.

An expansive coffered ceiling in the dining room invites guests to a full home-cooked breakfast featuring such temptations as fresh fruit with mint, eggs, seasoned potatoes, local thick-cut bacon, and our house special cinnamon chip pancakes.

Thanks to our wonderful guests, we have received the Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor for the 8th straight year.
