Not only was she nice as could be, but she was so helpful giving us lots of ideas of things to keep us busy while we were there, and all the best... More

My wife and I had a remarkable experience at the Mason Cottage in Cape May. We had never stayed in any bed and breakfast before. This is a warm comfortable friendly place where your every need is anticipated. Centrally located within Cape May, it is walking distance from everything.

I've stayed in quite a few b&b's and the Mason Cottage in Cape May, NJ has to be at the bottom of the list. Their brochure and website are very misleading. First, they do not offer homemade baked goods at tea time. They simply open a box of vanilla wafers and animal crackers. I thought that was tacky. Oh wait... More

We had researched many BBB Inns in the Cape and liked the reviews. After staying two nights I don't understand all the fuss? Rooms just ok, service was subpar! The internet sucked, trash cans not emptied, the staff was friendly but the owners seemed indifferent! This is a very competitive business and there are better options than this place!

We only had one night to stay in Cape May and The Mason Cottage happened to have that one night available. It was our first stay but hope it won't be our last. We stayed in the Franklin Room on the 3rd floor. I was able to enjoy a bit of relaxing in the claw foot tub...so nice! Patti took... More
