Cornerstone Bed & Breakfast

Bed and breakfast in University City & West Philadelphia
Image by

Housed in an 1865 Victorian mansion, this family-run B&B is an appealing choice with six uniquely designed rooms. Aptly named (it's on the corner and made of stone) the handsome building has a big wraparound porch and green and yellow trim. The garden/patio is a nice place to eat breakfast or relax on a warm day, and the hosts are welcoming.

Unlike some other B&Bs in historic houses, this place is both pet- and child-friendly.
