We found this place on our way to Port Arthur and loved the clean look to it, so we decided to ask about staying for a night. Denise, one of the current owners, was so lovely and the cabin we were in was fantastic. It was roomy, comfortable, and contains all amenities we could have needed and then some. The...

We found out after we arrived that Masons cottages was under new management. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. The room was the cleanest we stayed in on our recent holiday and we stayed in 7 locations. It was cosy and well appointed. I guess the best thing I can say is we are already planning to stay here...

Stayed just one night at Masons Cottages after a late finish at Port Arthur (ghost tour highly recommended by the way) and this accommodation fit our requirements exactly. Our hosts greeted us virtually as we drove up the driveway and were happy to let us check-in several hours early as we were on our way in to Port Arthur. (Of...

New management had just taken over a few days before we arrived. Yet it was a smooth and friendly check in and cabins were neat and clean. We had cabin #3 which is a two bedroom cabin. Rooms were good size, bathroom good size and a kitchenette. Close to Port Arthur Historic Site which was our main reason for staying...

An excellent place to stay. Very roomy and comfortable. Helpful and friendly hosts. We'd spent the day at Port Arthur and just had one night at Mason Cottages but if you were in the area for a longer stay this would be ideal. Wifi a little patchy but that didn't concern us.

We stayed one night after walking on the 3 Capes Walk, and wanted to visit the Unzoo in the morning. The unit was neat clean comfortable and had all that we needed, all at a reasonable price. So it was ideal for our purpose!

We loved our stay here. Perfect for visiting Port Arthur. The room had everything you need at a very reasonable price. Plus the owners are very friendly and helpful. Our wifi was weak in the studio but fine from the picnic area. Also near a few interesting hikes.

We stayed 3 nights and were very impressed. The rates were very reasonable and the cottage was roomy, comfortable and well equipped. Our hosts Werner and Kathy couldn't have been more helpful. They were very knowledgeable about the area and we found the information book in the cottage very useful as well. We were keen to do some walks and...

We needed accommodation for a night near Port Arthur and were forced back to Taranna as there were no vacancies further in. Some things are meant to be. A Tripadvisor search found Masons Cottages and the reviews were pretty well spot on. First impression on drive up is that the cottages are well presented and and cared for. Access is...
