The Mason Cottage Inn was a great place to spend my anniversary weekend with my wife. I have never traveled to Cape May before and used Trip Advisor to help me along the way. It seemed that Bed And Breakfast places were the way to go. After researching the top 15 or so rated palces on Trip Advisor I noticed all the great reviews for the Mason Cottage but it was rated numer 11 at the time of my research. I noticed that many places which rated better had a few average or poor reviews but the Cottage had almost all excellent reviews with two very good reviews. I wondered how this could be and figured that it rated a little lower then some others while having a better review record because it just didnt have as many reviews and that I may have stumbled upon a hidden gem. After spending two days here in October my assumption proved to be right on the money. I stayed in the Grand Mason Suite which was incredible. We had four rooms to ourselves including one that was a spa with a bath and massage table. The staff was also great, Kim and Christine were very attentive and always helpful. The breakfasts they provided was also excellent. The Mason Cottage also has five bicycles that are in great condition and for use by the guests. What I really liked about the Mason Cottage Inn is that it only accomadates a few guests at any one time. During our stay they were fully booked. I noticed many of the other popular Bed and Breakfasts had many guests and when I looked on their porches there were so many people. I thought to myself as I spent some very private and romantic moments with my wife that I had defineitly made the right choice. If you like some privacy and want a very Romantic stay the Mason Cottage is definitley a great place. Cant wait to comeback again. The location is also great as it is about one block away from the beach and about three blocks away from the primary shopping strip. We parked our car during our first day and walked or biked to everything.
