Sent my daughter on a college visit. They took care of her as if she was their own. Can't ask for anything more than that. Perfect location with all the charm that you want in a B&B. The breakfast was top notch and you will not go away hungry.

I found Cornerstone after a last minute need to travel to Philadelphia, and I did not want to spend my per diem on a hotel. I traveled with a colleague, and suffice it to say that this was the best decision ever! The owners are are in commnication immediately after booking, and upon arrival, you feel welcome.

My friend and I had a last minute work trip that came up the night before, so we packed our bags and headed to Philly. We contacted Cornerstone and not only did they have room, but they gave us the entire 3rd floor for a very reasonable price. They serve breakfast starting at 8, but due to our jobs, we...

Eve, Thank you for such a nice review. Sorry the spirits at the Cornerstone did not make a command performance for you but you just never know when and where they will appear.

Went to Philadelphia for a getaway and wanted to see their museums. This place was perfect; quiet, cozy and a short ride to the Barnes, the Philadelphia Art Museum and the Rodin museum, not to mention the Franklin Institute. The house was lovely, clean and the accommodations very comfortable. The owners were helpful and friendly but not in your face....

The Cornerstone B&B is perfect -- everything you want from a Bed & Breakfast experience. First of all -- the house itself is cozy and adorable. I was there on some cold Pennsylvania nights, and it's the perfect place to snuggle under the covers while the wind and snow blow outside... or, even better, to sit with a book and...
