“LOVED IT!”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

We found the Cornerstone B & B to be a welcoming, beautiful and spotless place to stay in a very convenient location. We stayed in the Furness Room...perfect for 1 or 2 people, ensuite bathroom, comfortable bed, super-clean and pretty, too! The innkeepers were wonderful, breakfast was delicious, and the Victorian front porch is a lovely place to people watch, read, relax or have a (great) cup of coffee. Tea, coffee and snacks are set out for guests to enjoy at any time...the neighborhood is charming and quiet, and a very short drive from downtown Philly. Check out the ceiling in the dining room! Pretty details everywhere. I highly recommend the Cornerstone!

We had a great time staying at the Cornerstone, while a short stay. The neighborhood is quiet, though close to Drexel and access to the train. Off street parking, which we got very lucky with. I loved being in an old mansion. Only thing they could do better is to have a better breakfast selection.

We were in Philadelphia for a college tour and were happy to have found the Cornerstone B+B! The B+B is in a nice, safe part of town, near the Penn campus. We stayed in the University Suite which comfortably accommodated my husband and I, as well as our son. Continental breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Philly!

Could only stay one night but would definitely stay there the next time we visit Philadelphia. Hosts were extremely outgoing and friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. The inn itself is beautiful with stained glass windows and beautiful hardwood floors. Our breakfast was hot out of the oven and served with fresh fruit as well as muffins. We did not leave hungry!! Our room was clean and very comfortable.

This was a lovely B&B! We were very pleased at how accommodating they were of our two small children (2yr, 9m). The continental suite was perfect for our family. Like having a small apartment (minus kitchen). We will be back.

My husband and I stayed here on our anniversary (again), a year after our first stay during our wedding weekend. What great memories! As last time, this time around our room was lovely, clean and spacious, and we especially loved the stained glass windows. We appreciated the complimentary tea and hot chocolate and were happy with the full breakfast on Saturday and Sunday that between both meals consisted of sausage, bacon, an egg quiche, fresh fruit, muffins, and scones. Our hosts were friendly and enthusiastic (especially Milo and Tibalt) and had plenty of suggestions for things to see in Philadelphia. We hope we can come back on another anniversary - thanks for the wonderful stay!

Very nice owners, answered all our questions! We were there on a weeknight and only one night, but the breakfast was fresh and yummy (scrumptious banana choc chip muffins!) and the coffee was out early (before 7am). Room was very clean and simple and there was no noise from our neighbors! We stayed in Franklin room which has a separate bathroom... somewhat annoying, but not a deal breaker. Much less expensive than all surrounding hotels! Street parking available, we got in late and only had to park a block away.
