A Historic Philadelphia Bed & Breakfast

The Cornerstone Bed & Breakfast in Philadelphia is truly a Victorian gem. We are conveniently located in one of Philadelphia's safest and most beautiful neighborhoods. Located on Drexel University's campus and a 10 minute walk to the University of Pennsylvania, our beautiful B&B is a quiet retreat set amongst a towering tree-lined street in University City. Built in 1870 as a private residence before being converted to a bed and breakfast, we have retained much of the building's original appearance while modernizing our rooms and suites to meet our guests' contemporary needs. 
Our home's elegant carpentry, original hardwood flooring, and ornate stained glass windows will transport you back in time. We are the only lodging in the city within walking distance to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Foundation, the Philadelphia Zoo, and 30th Street Station. For Center City, the Convention Center, and the Historic District, we are a short walk to the nearby subway station that will drop you off directly in front of those attractions.

Cornerstone is proud to be Philadelphia's only Select Registry, Distinct Inns of North America, property.

Great Stay

We visited recently Philadelphia and decided to stay at Cornerstone. It was a great experience: the house and the rooms are great and very clean. The breakfast was superb and very tasty. Eric and Jill show great hospitality. We highly recommend this place.

Loved The Cornerstone

We needed to visit family in Philly and chose the Cornerstone because of its location and because of their stringent safety protocols related to COVID. The hosts were incredibly hospitable and friendly. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast in the garden one day and on the porch another day. Will definitely stay there again.

Very Lovely Stay

Great house, great owners, great location, and a lovely night in Philly. Had a bottle of wine and breakfast on the porch. We were able to walk to all of the items on our list to visit. Exactly the place we needed.
