“A charming destination for a stay in Philadelphia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cornerstone B&B. The location is great. We were able to park in front of the front door (on a weekend). Breakfast was delicious, the staff friendly and the room spacious and furnished to a high quality. And it's always a joy to stay in a place with a bit of history.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cornerstone. The inn was beautiful. We especially appreciated relaxing and reading on the wrap around porch. Our room (The Pennsylvanian) was spacious, nicely decorated, and very clean. The Cornerstone is located within a convenient 10-15 minute walk to the 30th Street Station, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and a wide assortment of restaurants. We also appreciated the warm hospitality that Dennis and Liz extended. Thank you Dennis & Liz!

We enjoyed our 9 days stay at Conerstone B&B. The XIX century house situated on the Drexel campus is very convenient and nice, near subway and museums. We liked very much the hospitality of Dennis and his wife, the Dennis's humour and his help to feel you welcome. The room was nice ans clean and the breakfasts gave a great moment of hospitality.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cornerstone B&B. The rooms were beautiful and the breakfast food was delicious! The location is extremely convenient, with plenty of restaurants close by for lunch and dinner. The staff was very hospitable. We look forward to staying there again.

Wonderful family atmosphere and very high quality hospitality. Dennis and Liz couldn't have done a better job at making guests feel welcome. Nice location with easy access to Downtown and the University City, and great restaurants nearby too.

My wife and I elected to try a B & B for our family vacation in Philly instead of the standard hotel. We tried the Cornertone based on location, room options, and on-line reviews and we were not disappointed at all. Our room was very nice, roomy and clean, the food was great, and Dennis and Liz were awesome. My oldest son loved the experience and really made friends with Dennis and Liz especially when she gave him a nice bake treat after our return from the ball game. Bottom line the room was very nice, the food was great, parking was easy, very convenient to sites in the city, and Dennis was great with the guidance and suggestions. My son can't wait to go back.

We were delighted by our stay at this B and B! The innkeepers were very knowledgeable and helpful when we wanted advice on where to eat, what to see, etc. The location was convenient and the neighborhood was bustling with college life which could be watched from the front porch. The building itself was truly a treasure of architectural details. Very pretty. Our room was clean, comfortable and roomy , having an extra living suite and private bath. We spent three nights and the breakfasts were all very good, especially the weekend fare. We enjoyed what we saw of Philly and hope to return to this B and B again.

Room Tip: The room we had was the University Suite.
