This is an absolutely wonderful B&B. It is owned and runned by a lovely extended, family. They really go beyond the call of duty to make you feel welcome! The building itself dates from 1871. It is lovely with the original, beautiful stained glass windows. iIf you wish to splurge, the suite on the top floor has a whirlpool tub... More

We went to Philadelphia to see an exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and had the pleasure of staying at the Cornerstone B & B. The Cornerstone is run by a family and the family members we met could not have been nicer and made my wife and I and our two dogs feel welcome. We stayed in the... More

Wonderful stay, and the house is an easy walk from the Amtrak station (if you're a New Yorker and enjoy walking). Stayed on the top floor with our 2-year old and it couldn't have been easier! Clean, newly renovated rooms - not overly "designed," but comfortable.

Picked Cornerstone B&B for a last-minute road trip to Adventure Aquarium with our baby and a friend. I booked the Continental Suite which had 2 bed rooms, a small living room and well, a play yard for baby. Just serve the needs of all 4 of us! The room and beds were clean and the bathroom was spacious. We didn't... More

Everything was delightful during our stay. We could not have asked for more. Very clean and comfortable, while still being a historic home. The house is very homey and we felt safe inside and out. The owners were helpful and nice. Breakfast was just right-Saturday included the best pancakes we have ever eaten.

On the edge of Drexel University lies a beautiful Victorian home that Innkeepers Dennis and Liz Bartelme open up to guests. Cornerstone B & B is as beautiful outside as is inside. Liz greeted us kindly, informed us of the accommodations, and how best attack our quest on the Drexel campus. Peaceful rest, clean bathrooms, wonderful linen, and a breakfast... More

We stayed in the Philadelphian room which as 3 beautiful stained glass windows opposite the king bed. Bed was... More

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...
