I was there for the usmle exam, got treated like family, made sure I have everything I need for the exam, allowed me to have an early breakfast and to change clothes after the exam even though I already checked out.

We were very pleased with our charming well maintained accommodations. The photos show the actual rooms so we were not disappointed on arrival. My family of three shared a well appointed quiet two bedroom top floor suite with a private bathroom. The beds & pillows were comfortable, in fact, perfect for a good night's sleep after long distance travel. The...

This was our first stay and was wonderful. The house is absolutely charming and well kept. The porch creates a great space to relax. Even with modern amenities, this amazing house has all the charm we could ask for. The Inn Keepers are fantastic. They are friendly and social, but know when to give guests space to explore and relax....

I'm a little late in my review of Cornerstone B&B, but if I find myself in Philadelphia again, I will revisit this beautifully restored home in a very walkable neighborhood. Close to lots of great food, the University and many cultural venues.

We stayed here with our baby son. It was lovely. Very traditional house. The hosts were lovely and the breakfast was delicious. Lots of home cooked breads. They offered us a crib but we brought our own travel crib. Our baby was made to feel very welcome especially at breakfast with his own high chair and food. Thank you.

I really enjoyed my stay at Cornerstone B&B. The owners were very accommodating. They gave me a quick tour of my room, directions and recommendations for dinner, let me know they were there for any needs or questions and then left me alone. Perfection.... The bed seamed to be new, pillows very comfortable, great shower (water pressure), and a great...

Hi Jay, Thank you for your review of the Cornerstone B&B. We appreciate your nice comments and we look forward to your return trip with your wife. Philadelphia is a great city and more enjoyable if you spend the weekend with someone to enjoy it with. Hopefully you both will stay with us sometime in the near future.

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.
