My husband and I, along with another couple, spent one night at the Cornerstone B&B, a beautiful historic Victorian home. We would be visiting the Barnes Foundation and Philadelphia Museum of Art the following day and found Cornerstone very conveniently located, within about a 10-15 minute drive. Although located in a residential area, its rather busy with traffic and took... More

Our apologies is the spot light that lights the side yard kept you awake. It turns on automatically when it gets dark but as of today I adjusted it more off to the side so it should no longer pose an issue to anyone else. We are happy to hear that other than that issue you had a pleasant experience... More

We had a wonderful few nights at Cornerstone whilst on a working trip to Philly. The owners were welcoming, knowledgeable and forthcoming with advice and tips (e.g. about the all-important issue of recommending good places to get food). Our room was cosy and well appointed as well as spotlessly clean. Breakfast was amazing, especially with all the home-baked items on... More
