Just spent an enjoyable three days in Philadelphia staying at the Cornerstone in. Great location, beautiful restored home, and an accommodating staff. Much more fun than a hotel. Continental breakfast was great and good company with helpful trip advise.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Cornerstone Bed and Breakfast over the Halloween weekend. Liz and Dennis were fantastic hosts. The accommodations in the University Suite surpassed expectations. The breakfast and beverage service were excellent as always. The innkeepers were knowledgeable about area restaurants, attractions and provided me with a pass to see Eastern State Penn which I...

Stayed in the Fairmount room during the week for a girls getaway to visit Terror Behind the Walls/Eastern State Penitentiary (also highly recommended!). Adorable B &B, cute, sweet and friendly dogs, nice continental breakfast of homemade breads and coffee cakes. Free street parking was not a problem. Decided to call a cab to ESP ($9 one way), but parking over... More

This beautifully restored Victorian home provides an elegant respite from the many entertaining activities in Philly. We especially enjoyed stepping back in time on the spacious porch, enjoying an extra cup of coffee or sipping a glass of wine after sightseeing and visiting the university campuses nearby. The lovely rooms are spotlessly clean, nicely designed for comfort without clutter. Public... More

The place itself is within walking distance of 30th Street Station for arrivals by Amtrak or regional rail from the airport. It is situated in a university neighborhood with close access to Drexel University and The University of... More

My wife and I enjoyed a very pleasant stay at the Cornerstone. The Inn is a wonderfully maintained Victorian in a great location in the Northern University City area of Philadelphia. The owners were quite helpful and accomodating and offered my wife and I some suggestions for a walking tour. We stayed in the Philadelphia room which is on the... More
