Cozy and charming B&B! Very well maintained! Delicious breakfast and a great location. The owners are very nice and told us all about the history of the house and the neighborhood! The house is over 150 years old but the rooms have all modern day amenities without loosing the feeling you are transported back in time. Highly recommended!

We had a delightful stay at Cornerstone where my friend and I shared the two bedroom suite. We found the beds to be very comfortable; the pillows and sheets are luxurious. Breakfast was excellent with a fresh made goat cheese and egg scramble plus toast with a delicious pepper jam, Also available were melon, bread, rolls, muffins and other accompaniments. The house is rich with Victorian detail, clean and tidy and fun to look at. A charming young couple are the hosts, who do a marvelous job with everything. A comfortable, convenient B&B near the art museum area, , Drexel and U of P, the Schuylkill River and Fairmount Park. we'll be back.

Away from the noise of downtown Philly, walking distance to many sights.

Property is extremely clean and well maintained. Owners are very focused on making each guest experience excellent.

I was stuck in Philadelphia due to airline cancellations from weather. I ended up at the Amtrak station and had no idea where to go. Single woman travelling alone and I really don't like hotels due to noise. So I luckily found the Cornerstone B&B and took an Uber there and was greeted like family and my room was so cute and cozy and warm! I loved the giant separate bathroom too. I slept so well with the great bed, soft sheets and awesome pillows. I was super happy to find shampoo, soap and conditioner in the shower since I had none with me. Breakfast was delicious and there was a lot of variety with food, teas and coffees. I would highly recommend this B&B over a hotel at any time!

Great location. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean room. Would definitely stay here again.

Old restored 19th house with high ceilings and renovated bathroom. Neighborhood is successfully gentrified, but students in the streets made noise well into the night.

We stayed here for the first night of our honeymoon and couldn't have picked a better place! The staff (Jules) was very welcoming and friendly, and the place was beautiful! Our room had a huge private bathroom with a gorgeous stained glass window and enormous shower. The bed was incredibly comfortable - I would definitely stay again!

Thank you for review of the Cornerstone. My apologies that the students made noise while you were here. Unfortunately being in a college town it happens sometimes.
