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.

I did a lot of research on places to stay in Cape May, NJ. I wanted to go there for the Victorian Christmas decorations. I found the Mason Cottage Inn and it had excellent reviews and a great location. Upon arrival we were greeted at the door by Patty. She welcomed us to the inn and escorted us to the... More

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

We enjoyed our two day stay very much. The Mason house is a lovely relaxing place to stay very clean with delicious breakfasts and the Chococlate Afternoon tea with home made chocolate scones were awesome. We stayed in the Madison room which was on the second floor, it had a comfortable double bed with a small tv and some nice... More

The room at Mason Cottage was just great. Stay in the Davis suite. It had a fireplace which we wanted to use , but the weather was too warm to put on. The owner was just great too. The breakfast was just the right amount. The location was also perfect, close to the beach and Washington Street mall. Take the... More
