“friendly innkeepers, great breakfast”
Reviewed February 15, 2009

A beautiful inn nestled in the heart of the Drexel community. Great porch with rocking chairs, would be wonderful in the warmer months to sit outside with a glass of complementary wine. Wine and cheese reception with the owners and other guests on Saturday evenings was delightful! Full homemade breakfast during the weekend was absolutely delicious! Rooms had comfortable beds and pillows and cozy decor, but is getting ready to be redecorated. Only minus was it was a bit loud during the night due to college students outside! Would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone, especially couples looking for a getaway!

My g'daughter and I spent a couple of days at the Cornerstone B&B and had a most marvelous experience. The B&B is gorgeous, the rooms very clean and comfortable and the service of the innkeepers is more than exceptional. They went above and beyond the call to make our stay an unforgetable one. I cannot praise the whole family enough for their generosity, help and concern for us. I would definitely recommend the Cornerstone to all who want a wonderful experience in the University area. I would return in a heartbeat.

Every restaurant they recommended was excellent!

The house itself is magnificent with beautiful high ceilings, stained glass windows and the friendliest people one would ever want to encounter.

I certainly would give the Cornerstone B&B a five star rating.

  • Liked — The overall experience, I can find nothing wrong with anything. It was the best.
  • Disliked — N/A

The Cornerstone Bed & Breakfast is a beautiful b&b located in the University City district of West Philadelphia. The building itself and the interior rooms are elegant, clean and inviting, but, it is the warmth of the innkeepers that truly makes the Cornerstone stand apart – and above – all the rest. Under new ownership, the b&b has become one of the few places you can call a “home away from home.” Dennis, Liz, Chris and Jules are genuinely kind-hearted, friendly people and they provide a warm, comfortable, and welcoming atmosphere. Breakfast included a delicious fruit salad, scrambled eggs, and delectable homemade blueberry muffins. Ever the gracious hosts, they accommodate dietary needs, timing needs (one of us was sitting for the US MLE exam and they ensured a timely breakfast), and requests for additional amenities for the room (e.g., iron and ironing board). Overall, the most pleasant overnight experience I have had in an establishment in quite a long time. Felt very much at home, as if I was with long-time friends. Definitely plan to return and highly recommend this b&b.

  • Liked — Hospitality and care of the inkeepers, cleanliness, & charm
  • Disliked — Nothing!
