My wife and I have vacationed in Cape May 5 times over the past 6 years. We always stay at The Mason Cottage and have always enjoyed it, but this year was a bit different. Since our last visit 2 years ago, The Mason Cottage received a complete make-over, from the front porch to the innkeeper. The view from the front porch was as awesome as it always was, but the fresh look and clean feel of the cottage made it even more inviting. While the improvements to the inn were welcomed, I can’t say enough about Patty the innkeeper. For starters, we arrived on my 50th birthday and we found a gift card (purchased by my sister) for our favorite Cape May restaurant sitting on our bed. My sister later informed me that Patty drove to the restaurant, picked up the gift card, placed it in a birthday card and on our bed before we arrived. Talk about going above and beyond! Before reading some of these reviews I honestly thought that Patty treated us special, but based on everyone’s comments, it appears as though she treats everyone this way! (I don’t feel so special anymore! Ha!) The breakfasts were excellent and Patty’s restaurant recommendations were on the money. I tend to talk a bit, (especially when I drink wine), but Patty was up for the challenge. She was never at a loss for words! I could go on and on, but do yourself a favor and book a few nights. You won’t be disappointed. The Cape May restaurants are fantastic, the location of the cottage is awesome and you can’t go wrong with Patty and Angela taking care of you. See ya next year! Or maybe sooner??
