Sherry, We had such a wonderful experience and felt very welcomed at the Mayor Lord's House. It was the first time we have ever stayed at a Bed & Breakfast and it was amazing. The homemade breakfast was outstanding and loved the quiche. Our room was beautiful and our bed was so comfortable and slept so very well. Thank you so very much for making our stay with you the best experience ever. We are telling everyone here in Erie about Mayor Lord's House and it is a must stay amazing place to go and relax.

Lovely B&B in Meadville, PA

Sherry the Innkeeper was terrific, as was breakfast each morning. We could walk to the downtown area restaurants, which was very convenient. We would stay again if we are back in the area.

Was an easy, comfortable and special stay at this Meadville B n B. Nice conversation with the owner and chef. We certainly would return again.

From the moment we entered the mayor Lord home, we felt instantly welcome and cared for. Meadville had experienced tremendous snowfall and terrible weather but you would never know it from the warm we felt with our gracious host. The rooms were an excellent value, and the breakfast beats anything I've had inside a major chain hotel billing itself as a continental breakfast If your family is coming to Meadville to spend time with your student at Allegheny, or you are visiting for business, it is an excellent place to rest your head and a wonderful place to fill your belly at breakfast time.

Enjoyed our stay at the Mayor Lord's House. Sherry was extremely accommodating and helpful. Liked our room - the bed was very comfortable - and enjoyed breakfast - Sherry even fed our family who live in Meadville !! Would definitely stay here again.

Pittsburgh Steelers and Penguins trip

Travelled from Ontario on our way to pittsburgh for a hockey and football game. Family of 6 (parents with adult children and their partners). Upon arrival were greeted, area questions answered and an excellent suggestion for dinner restaurant provided within easy walking distance- Voodoo Brewery. We all had a great sleep followed by a fantastic breakfast. Sherry knows how to cook! We have stayed in many bed and breakfasts and this one did not disappoint.

It was a clean and safe stay.

I stayed in a nice clean room. It did not have a bathroom on suite but she offered a free upgrade if I wanted to move.

Only one night

5 on October 04, 2014

I visited a family member in Meadville, and was lucky to find Mayor Lords. I was greeted by Kate, a beautiful calico cat. Sherry kept in touch as I was not sure of my arrival. She was super attentive! I arrived earlier than expected, so I looked in all the rooms where the guests hadn't arrived yet. What a treasure! Each room was excellent. The home was craftsman, and I must admit, it's my favorite era, so I am certainly biased! I stayed in the Reynolds room, and it was delightful. The bathroom was charming, subway tile, old windows...My room was in the front, so there was noise, but not anything I would say was disturbing. Of course, I live in a noisier area, so this was minimal. Breakfast was hot/cold buffet style, and was quite good. I am not a huge breakfast person, so I am easily impressed! No stale donuts here!I wanted to stay an extra night, but they were fully booked! Next time, I will plant to stay longer!

Wonderful stay!

This is a wonderful house and place to stay. The house was awesome and very peaceful. I can't wait to stay again. It was like going home to grandma's house. Thank you for a great stay. We stayed 5 nights the first time will make it a week next time.

Beautiful B&B

5 on September 18, 2014

We stayed for one night and had reserved the DeGrange room, but we were able to upgrade and chose the Lord Room. This B&B is beautiful, clean, and tastefully decorated. Sherry, the innkeeper, was helpful with restaurant suggestions and made sure we had everything we needed. We shared a bathroom with the other downstairs room, but all of your towels, soap, robes, etc are in your room, so sharing the bathroom is not an issue. We saw reviews regarding the traffic noise, but found that it was very minimal and did not bother us. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. My husband said it was just like being at home, and I said that's true if our home was beautiful and had nice furniture!!! We hope to have the opportunity to stay at Mayor Lord House in the future.
