We enjoyed our stay at Mason Cottage, we stayed in the Rose Room which has a full sized bed (very comfy!!!) and a private bath with a stand up shower. Breakfast was served in a small dining room and was delicious and very filling! We...

From our arrival to departure, every aspect of our stay at The Mason Cottage Bed & Breakfast Inn was exactly what we were looking for during our off-season stay. We were greeted warmly by the convivial innkeeper Patti, and we found the Davis Suite and the overall accommodations of the inn to be simply wonderful. The Mason is only two...

The Mason Cottage was very nice. 3 room suite, electric heat controlled in each room, tub and shower, nice amenities, good furnishings. On street parking which might be a problem in summer. One block from beach near convention center. 3 blocks to downtown mall....

Have been to several B & B's in Cape May but this in one of my favorites. The breakfasts were delicious, hosts were cordial and the Victorian house was beautiful. The Christmas decorations were spectacular. Great little get away.

We took a much-needed two-day getaway in the middle of the week. Superb accommodations and extremely friendly staff. We loved the freshly cooked hot breakfast and had to indulge in afternoon tea! This inn is very conveniently located. Easy street parking. We walked everywhere, a block to promenade and beach, about 2 blocks to Washington Mall where there are many...
