Our rooms was beautiful as was the adding detail when we arrived in our room. We spent days there and had such a wonderful time. We are planning on going back next summer. Thank you Mason Cottage for checking off my bucket list.

My fiance and I planned a trip to Cape May for a getway and decided to stay at the Mason Cottage. The whole experience was ethereal. The Inn not only charming and romantic, but immaculate. The attention to detail was very evident. The staff were very nice and attentive, yet not overbearing. Even though the weather did not cooperate one... More

My fiancé and I visited the Mason's cottage this past week and we stayed in the Spa Room - fantastic! We were graciously greeted my Patricia who won us over instantaneously with her out-going personality, wit and all around great nature. Our room was so very large, clean and more than accommodating. The simple amenities like bikes on site, beach... More

Just returned from a trip at The Mason Cottage and had a fabulous stay. The home as well as our room were gorgeous and extremely well kept. This was our first experience at a B&B and Lisa was so warm and welcoming. We stayed in the Franklin suite and found it beautifully decorated. The proximity to the shops and beach... More

My wife and I went to Cape May for the weekend and were lucky enough to book a room at the Mason Cottage. This was one of the best trips we've been on in ages. The Inn itself is absolutely charming and the Innkeeper couldn't do more to make us feel at home. We will definitely be back next year!!

This was my sister’s and my 5th year in a row staying at The Mason Cottage. The location is perfect. Everything a person could want is within walking distance. The innkeeper, Patti, is amazing! I always feel pampered and never want to go home. Her breakfasts are delicious and beautifully presented and having the option to eat on the porch... More

My husband & I recently stayed at the Mason Cottage & it wasn't at all the experience we had hoped for with this being our first time at a bed & breakfast. The so called innkeeper - Patty wasn't welcoming in any way, never asked if we needed anything & couldn't even take a minute to say good-bye to us... More
