Eric and Jill Pfaff-Moody are excited to be the young new owners of Cornerstone and they are proud to be two of the youngest innkeepers in the country!
A native to the Philadelphia area, Jill grew up in the hospitality industry. For more than 25 years, her grandmother Joan owned the New Hope Lodge in New Hope, PA. Jill spent much of her childhood after school with her at the lodge, watching her work, never imagining that one day she would own a boutique inn herself. Jill and Eric were able to purchase Cornerstone because of Joan, and her portrait holds a place of honor in the dining room. Joan's life's work as an innkeeper made this all possible.
Jill prides herself on being a young female entrepreneur. She earned a Master's Degree in Education from Hunter College and taught in New York City, and has a B.A. in Communication Arts from Marymount Manhattan College. Jill is also the owner of Imagine Works Youth Theatre, which has provided her with business and leadership experience out of NYC. She is the business and administrative guru at Cornerstone Bed and Breakfast. She also loves to sing—you will often hear her humming along to every song that comes on during breakfast. Jill also serves as Eric's sous chef in the kitchen.
Eric holds a B.A. in Theater from Milliken University and studied Shakespeare in London, where his love of history began. He has fifteen years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry and has worked the last 5 years in the restaurant, hospitality and culinary industry in New York City. While in New York, he studied with New York Business Solutions about entrepreneurship and inn-keeping. He is the creative mind behind every delicious Cornerstone breakfast and tantalizing social media post. You will often see Eric hustling about making sure that everything is perfect for our guests. And he does it all with a smile!
Both Jill and Eric passionately dedicate themselves to hospitality and making sure guests have the perfect stay at Cornerstone. Guests rave about their warmth and kindness, and notice how Jill and Eric will always go above and beyond.
