My partner and I stayed a few days at the Cornerstone Bed and Breakfast after a long flight where the airline had lost our luggage. Liz and Denis where so helpful, giving us missing amenities. The cottage is beautiful as are the rooms. Breakfast was fresh with home bakes - just delicious. I was in Philadelphia to sit an exam... More

Liz and Dennis run a fantastic B&B! We stayed in the Philadelphian Room which is on the main floor. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The hosts go out of their way to make you feel welcome and cater to your needs, yet respect your space. Breakfast both days was exceptional and wholesome. Liz worked hard to meet other... More

Due to a family member having surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania I needed a place to stay for a couple of nights. I spoke with Dennis who was very accommodating with reserving the Furness room for me. Upon arriving I was warmly greeted by both Dennis and Liz. The home is beautiful and the room was... More

The Cornerstone B & B is located in the University section of Philadelphia. The rooms are exceedingly well appointed -- very roomy suites, very luxurious feeling, and the whole house exudes a sense of comfort. Breakfast is served in a lovely dining room, although guests are seated somewhat awkwardly at a single table rather than individual tables. Nonetheless, the whole... More

I recently visited Philadelphia on a business trip and spent 2 nights at Cornerstone. The hosts were very accommodating of my late arrival time, and walking into the well lit, festively decorated house was a great reception. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and included excellent homemade bread. Since the house is within walking distance of U Penn, my commute... More

I stayed in Cornerstone b&b for 2 nights in October in the room on the ground floor. The hotel is very well-situated. I arrived by train at 30th Street Station and it was a short and fun walk to the hotel. Though the surrounding buildings are also old, the place felt safe and I could easily walk in the street...

This place has it all: A beautiful vintage building meticulously maintained. Gracious professional management, a very generous breakfast, easy to access WiFi and a very comfortable bed. My room had a jacuzzi tub that was the perfect end to a long day of traveling. A convenient location.

The rooms we stayed in were very comfortable. The hosts were kind, generous and gave appropriate space to all guests. They seemed present when needed and invisible when not. It was the perfect stay. The breakfast was especially delicious with homemade baked goods and ample choices to meet the sometimes challenging preferences of my children. Breakfast included fresh fruit, multiple... More
