Cape May is such a beautiful place. We had a wonderful time! The Mason Cottage was nothing shy of perfect. The whole house was designed so elegantly. The porch was a great place to relax and enjoy the cool breeze. Breakfast was lovely! Afternoon Tea "lemonade" was so refreshing after biking to the lighthouse and back. There is just so... More

Just returned from our second visit to The Mason Cottage and once again it was outstanding! We've decided to make this an annual getaway and I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. The Mason is a beautiful Victorian home with lots of antique charm but also modern amenities that make it an absolute pleasure to stay. We enjoyed our stay in... More

My wife and I had the opportunity to visit Cape May and stay in our favorite B&B again. The Mason Cottage is simply outstanding. The Mason Cottage is quite the place to visit on its own! From lemonade in the afternoon to one of the best frittatas I have ever had for breakfast, the place has "must stay" written all... More

Every year we visit The Mason Cottage. It has everything: it's comfortable and welcoming and near the beach and has comfy, clean accommodations. Breakfasts are huge and delicious and afternoon tea is always yummy!!! And it is also near the best restaurants and shopping in Cape May. And don't forget to get that spa experience at Cape May Day Spa.... More

My husband and I recently celebrated our 36th anniversary at the Mason Cottage. This was our third bed and breakfast experience so I have those experiences to compare this one to. I was advised check in was between 3:00 and 6:00. I originally called Patti and told her we would be there by 5:00 but we had stopped in Atlantic... More

This is the first time my husband and I have stayed at the Mason Cottage but not our first bed and breakfast in Cape May. The inn we usually stayed at is not a bed and breakfast anymore and we couldnt bear staying anywhere else. After a couple of years we decided to try another inn. I did a lot... More

This was our third time staying at the Mason Cottage. Each time was a wonderful experience. Patty is a great innkeeper and her breakfasts are so delicious. This visit our daughter and her boyfriend joined us for their first B&B experience. We will be back again.

Met our good friends from DC area in Cape May for two nights (nice location with us being from Northwest NJ). Lisa was very accomodating and helpful upon our arrival. She even gave us a quick history on the home. Sitting in the parlor we surrounded by various Chocolate offerings, so we knew it would be nice stay. Patty was... More

I have never stayed at a B & B. Our experience was booked by my significant other to celebrate one year anniversary together. It was one of the best weekends of our life....as well as our year together. The staff could not have been more lovely, warm and accommodating. We booked another two nights next month BEFORE we even left... More
