    History in a house

    An 1870 piece of history in a house. Fantastic hosts! Great location. Super furnishings. They are new to BnB and are already a success

    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!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Newly renovated stylish bed and breakfast! A couple of young innkeepers purchased this property and have transformed it into a warm, inviting, trendy place to stay. They have decorated with vibrant colors and adorned the interior with interesting pieces which made us appreciate the richness of the past. Yet -they have quietly ensured all the comforts of our present times. We stayed in the Continental Suite which is perfect for a family of 4, a group of friends traveling together, or a couple who may prefer a bit of luxury and extra space. This top floor Suite offers two bedrooms with adjoining bath ( including a marvelous jacuzzi as well as shower) and a sitting room with TV. An honor bar is provided with a well appointed selection of wines and beers along with coffee and other beverages. Breakfast is delightful. Offerings included pumpkin spice pancakes with freshly whipped maple cream and waffles with strawberry sauce with crisp bacon. A constantly refilled basket of thoughtful healthy snacks was set by the beverage bar in the dining room and an additional offering of cold cider and homemade mini baked goodies always available. Excellent attention to detail and comfort! Excellent value. Quiet, private safe haven in the heart of Philadelphia. Enjoy!

    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.
