Cornerstone B&B
Cornerstone is a unique, warm, cozy family owned Boutique Bed and Breakfast in the heart of Philadelphia. A member of Select Registry and located within walking distance to nature trails, world class retail and restaurants, and dozens of museums and cultural institutions, this new take on a traditional Bed and Breakfast offers a perfect mix of old world elegance and new world luxury while exploring the best Philadelphia has to offer. 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 guest’s contemporary needs.
The Cornerstone Bed and Breakfast has been a family run operation since 2008. Eric & Jill Pfaff-Moody are the young new owners and are excited to bring modern comfort to this historic home!
The bustling heart of West Philadelphia and the academic epicenter of the entire region, University City is so named due to two of the largest and most influential institutions in town: the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University. But though these collegiate giants, sub-anchored by nationally renowned medical hubs, have hands in multiple arenas, the enclave also boasts a magnetic individuality fueled by youthful innovation and commitment to artistic and cultural exploration.
