We loved our visit here on a Saturday, Sunday, and Monday in August. Very hot in Philly but the rooms and breakfast area air conditioned. Dennis was the friendliest possible host with lots of suggestions. We stayed in the University Suite, which is very roomy. The whole place is cozy and traditional. The weekend breakfast was great and we enjoyed... More

Nice location, quaint, quiet place. The owners are super friendly and very accommodating. The place itself is lovely and very clean. Very homey feel. We had the full breakfast on Sunday morning which was very good. Easy to find parking. Five stars.

Our three night stay at this charming inn was comfortable and in easy walking distance to the Philadelphia Museum of Art (and also to a stop for the Phlash Downtown Loop bus--only $5 for an all-day pass). We parked once and let the car sit for three days. Thanks, Liz and Dennis! Also--what fun to learn that the great granddaughter... More

Beautiful bed and breakfast! Wish we had time to spend another evening. As soon as we walked in we were warmly welcomed into this amazing home and on our way out we were sent out with a full stomach of delicious breakfast. Walking distance from many sites in the city.

We decided to visit the Philadelphia Zoo and made a last minute reservation at the Cornerstone. We got the last room available - the Franklin Room, which has a private external bath - and free zoo tickets were featured for this reservation. We were warmly welcomed by Chris (and Milo, a visiting dachshund) and he oriented us to how everything... More

A short walk to the subway and you are in the city center. If you are visiting Drexel or Penn, an excellent choice. Proprietors were friendly, helpful and served great breakfasts. On the street parking slightly inconvenient but manageable. Beautiful porch and amazing dining room.

My husband and I just returned from an overnight at one of the best bed and breakfast places we've ever been..... We've been to many! When we arrived we were greeted by Dave. He was friendly, welcoming and helpful with making our plans. We stayed in the Philadelphian room. It was a lovely, spacious, comfortable and clean room. There is... More

Ideal jumping off point for UPenn or Dexel visits; walking distance to the fabulous PA Museum of Art. Not many upscale restaurants around, but cab service was friendly and reliable to Rittenhouse district. Very nice breakfast spread.

We were made to feel so welcome and at home. Their attention to detail was excellent. Liz's breakfasts are incredible. They made our stay in Philadelphia extra special and we'll be back to this B&B again!

We were headed to a wedding in Cinnamonson, NJ and on our way back home, we decided to make a mini vacation out of our weekend trip. We searched and searched and we didn't want another corporate hotel experience, so we stumbled upon the quaint little B&B. Upon entering we were greeted by Dennis and Chris a lovely father and...
