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

This was my second stay at the Mason Cottage, this time as a single, and I enjoyed it just as much this time around! The inn's location is perfect, close to everything. My last stay I had The Davis Suite since I was accompanied by my boyfriend, but this time around as a solo I chose the Madison Room, which... More

Judy, As always, it was such a pleasure to see you again and thank you for your kind words! I am thrilled you liked the Madison Room as much as the Davis Suite. It is a sweet room and just so cozy and with the breezes coming through those big windows! We look forward to seeing you again real soon!... More

Absolutely love this place!!! We stayed in the Franklin Suite. Our stay was only one night but we are already planning a second trip for this summer hopefully for 2 or 3 nights.

It doesn't get better than this! Every aspect of our stay was wonderful. Very friendly host and guests. Beautiful decor and rooms. Breakfasts yummy but not low-cal. Scones and tea in the afternoon. Walk out the door and you are a block from ocean, shops, horse-drawn carriages and much more in this charming Victorian town on the gorgeous Jersey Shore.

We stayed in the Decatur Suite at the Mason Cottage for two nights. The inn is not overly fancy but very comfortable and relaxing. Patti the inn keeper is friendly and cooks delicious treats for afternoon tea and yummy breakfasts. There's candy, coffee, and tea available 24 hours a day. Our room had a jacuzzi but the jets did not... More

We have been coming to the Mason Cottage twice a year for five years. It is immaculate, close to shopping, dining and the beach. Patti is the best innkeeper in town,with suggestions for dining, fun experiences, booking spa appointments and making reservations at the town's best dining venues.

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful B & B a few weekends ago. It was our last "getaway" before a new baby joins our family. What a fantastic time we had!
