Room Detail

Spencer Suite

The Captains Quarters
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.

The Presidents Suite

Marys Room
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.

The Nursery
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. Note, depending on occupancy, a third guest may be accommodated midweek off-season by calling the innkeeper, 814-464-0419. Extra person charge applies.

The Nannys Room
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, semi-private hallway is lined in exposed original brickwork. The private bathroom is located in the hall and features a clawfoot tub with shower.
