“A quick get a way to Cape May, NJ”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

We thoroughly enjoy the Mason Cottage in Cape May. The property is well maintained, room very clean, and the inkeeper very accessable and very accommodating. There was a book of restaurants and attractions in the area for you to review. The "trolley" stopped close to the property. Breakfast was delicious and it is not a continental. Even though you have to walk up one or two flights of steps to get to the rooms, the walk is worth it once you get into the room. Room was clean, well lighted, nice furniture.Walking to the beach and to the shopping area was a breeze. Bikes were also available on the property for guests use. Our room, the Davis Room, had a jacuzzi which was really nice.

Room Tip: Depends on whether or not you can walk up one or two flights of steps, and whether or not you want a...

My husband and I have stayed at many B & B's. The Mason Cottage is a very nice, slightly above average B & B. The location is ideal, being close to the beach and shopping at the Washington Street Mall. Our room was clean and had attractive furniture. The jacuzzi tub was a nice treat. Breakfast was ample, and tasty. It was helpful having free bikes, beach chairs and towels. Attention to minor details is what sets apart excellent B & B's and some of those things were lacking at the Mason Cottage. But overall, it is a very nice place to stay when visiting Cape May.

Room Tip: No pool or fitness center, but n/a not available on Tripadvisor. Decatur Room was comfortable and s...

This was our first stay in Cape May and our choice of the Mason Cottage was a wonderful experience. Location , atmosphere,accommodations and the innkeeper, Patty, all combined to make the experience a wonderful one. Having those scrumptous breakfasts on the veranda in the most amazing weather made it difficult to return to "the real world". Hope to make another trip in the near future.

Room Tip: Ware Room is on the 2nd floor, front where the morning sun awakens you to a view of the beach only a...

I loved my weekend stay at The Mason Cottage. Patti was warm and welcoming, breakfasts were fantastic, my room was darling (though a 2 story walk up, so bring your luggage in several small pieces rather than in 1 large heavy suitcase).
There are bicycles to borrow (of high quality), sand chairs that recline flat to borrow (also of high quality), and beach towels.
I had to park about 1/4 mile away, but I didn't touch my car until I left Cape May, so the parking challenge presented itself only once.
I hadn't realized that one had to pay to go on the beach--cash only. So, I bought a 3 consecutive-day pass for $10. What's nice is that there are clean bathrooms one can use along the concrete boardwalk, so that makes the fee worthwhile.

My wife an I had never been to Cape May nor stayed at a bed and breakfast and decided to do so for our anniversary. We stayed at Mason Cottage for two nights and it was wonderful. Our room was spacious and well appointed. The innkeeper, Patti, couldn't have been more friendly and the breakfasts that she made were inventive and amazing. The location was central for both the beach and main area of town. We would definitely recommend Mason Cottage and plan to return in the future.

My husband and I enjoyed a long weekend in the Rose Room at The Mason Cottage and were very pleased with everything. Being able to sit on the porch was fantastic, but having breakfast on the porch was a bonus. The breakfasts were tasty and Patti was very helpful in helping us figure out where to venture for dinner. We were in town for a friend's wedding, so it was nice to be able to come back to what felt like home rather than a hotel. We will definitely be back! Thanks for such a great stay, Patti!

My wife and I just returned from 4 nights at the Mason Cottage where we stayed for our first anniversary, and just had the most wonderful time! One block off the main drag of Beach Ave, it was nice and quiet while still being just a 3 minute walk to the shore.

The Innkeeper, Patti, was wonderful: totally helpful and cooked great breakfasts. Oh, and breakfast on the porch each morning was a wonderful treat. The only downside was the mattress and pillows in our room, the Madison, were pretty uncomfortable. Still, sleeping with the window open and the cool air coming in was great.

It's quite affordable, by Cape May standards, and we would definitely go back. Would give 4.5 if I could.
