Philadelphia's Cornerstone Bed and Breakfast is a beautifully preserved, elegant and cozy historic inn. Nestled on the corner of a tree lined street, Cornerstone offers spacious updated luxury rooms and amenities, as well as a gourmet breakfast served daily to be enjoyed in our grand dining room or on our wrap-around porch. We are conveniently located steps from Drexel University's campus and a short walk to the University of Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Boathouse Row, the Barnes Foundation, Eastern State Penitentiary, and the Hospitals of UPenn. Center City, the Historic District, as well as the Philadelphia Convention Center are only minutes away and easily accessible by public transportation. The Cornerstone Bed and Breakfast is a family owned and operated business. We personally hope to make you feel special and we look forward to making your visit a memorable experience.

I try to stay in a bed and breakfast wherever I go. This BnB was close to Drexel and Upenn. Sweet hosts, sweet room, sweet breakfast and sweet house in a sweet historical location. I visited during end of quarantine and Jill the hostess did a temperature check before I entered the house. Every room has an air purifier. Rooms are very clean.

Property's Favorite Review
We were nervous about traveling given the recent events (COVID19 pandemic, protesting, etc.). Jill and Eric created such a welcoming atmosphere, assuring us we were safe. They went above and beyond the standards for cleanliness! The rooms and common areas were beautiful. Eric is an incredibly talented chef, breakfast was amazing! Gluten free and regular banana walnut pancakes with his very own carmel drizzle sauce (using his homemade vanilla extract!!). This visit truly felt like we were visiting family. We are already talking about planning a trip to return again soon!

Such a great experience! The owners Jill and Eric are extremely welcoming and knowledgeable in all things Philly. We stayed in the continental suite upstairs with the jacuzzi tub! Everything was very clean and cozy, we especially enjoyed spending evenings on the giant porch. Eric is quite the cook! They even reached out to ask about dietary restrictions and made me some super delicious vegan breakfasts and snacks! I highly recommend ditching the hotel and staying at this adorable gem.

Jill and Eric are fantastic hosts that provide the most comfortable stay in Collegetown. The B&B is a historic mansion that has many amenities. You definitely will not go hungry after the breakfast that Eric makes for you in the morning. Eating out on the wrap around porch was most pleasant with the birds singing away. I look forward to visiting Cornerstone Bed & Breakfast again.

This was totally a picture perfect Bed & Breakfast! So cute and clean. The owners are an adorable coupe who went beyond what I'd expect from a B&B. It feels like you stepped into a different time inside. Everything looks so in place, elegant wooden staircase, cute room that had a comfortable warmth to it and natural lighting. Oh! and this beautiful room with these unbelievable high ceilings that have intricate detailing where you can read and relax. Picture Belle's dream home, with a rose stained glass window to top off the fairytale. Guys go I think I found my place in philly to stay.
