From the moment you step past the heavy antique doors of the Erie Mansion, you sense the rumors are true. This place has a presence.
Built 150 years ago in 1858, this 12,000 square foot historic landmark has been known as the Smith-Ely Mansion. Renamed for its closeness to the Erie Canal, innkeeper Mark Wright has restored luxurious suites each with a private bath, and opened the doors as a bed and breakfast. The Erie Mansion offers walking tours through the mansion and its location in historic Clyde is a short drive from many Upstate New York attractions.

“Erie Mansion also has a history of being eerie, as in ghosts! Spend a few minutes with Mark, the innkeeper, and you’ll hear a tale or two. The property is listed in the Dept. of the Interior’s National Register of Historic Places.” The Getaway Guy, Spectrum News 1
