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...

We just got back from a long weekend at the Mason & we really loved it. It was in a great location, very close to the beach as well as the pedestrian mall. We loved sitting on the veranda, enjoying our delicious breakfast and people-watching. We stayed at the Rose Room and our bed was very comfortable. We slept great!...

My wife and I visited Cape May in August and stayed two nights at the Mason Cottage. Patti was very attentive and was very thorough showing us all of the amenities of the Inn. The location of the Inn is terrific as it is within a short walk to the beach or to the Washington Street shopping area. The room...

This was our second time in Cape May. We only stayed three nights and booked the Mason Cottage at the last minute. I brought my daughter, a college student, and her friend along. The Mason Cottage was the ideal place for a girls getaway! We had the Franklin Suite, which was perfect for the three of us. It consists of...

My husband and I visited Cape May for the first time and stayed at this Victorian-themed Inn in July 2012 during the heat wave. Unfortunately, there was no air-conditioning on the main floor of the home, where the main sitting room and breakfast room were located. It was incredibly hot and stuffy on the first floor of the house all...

Hello. I have never before written a review for any accommodation, though I do frequently read them; especially from Trip Advisor. My wife and I stayed the past 2 nights at Mason Cottage. I chose it based on a combination of its location, reviews, and price. It was a good find in all areas. The cottage was just 2 blocks...

What a wonderful stay my partner and I had at this impeccably run bed and breakfast. We travel a lot but had never been to Cape May. This was a fantastic way to experience the beauty of this Victorian paradise. Cape May has to be one of the most charming cities in the United States. Victorian homes, a pedestrian shopping...

We spent three nights at the Mason Cottage while visiting Cape May for the wonderful birding opportunities. We have often stayed at B and Bs and rank this one among the finest. The home has been lovingly restored and the rooms are well equipped and quiet. Patti is a great host, offering her 'insider' view of where to eat in...

With only a short time to visit Cape May, the Mason Cottage was a great romantic destination! It has convenient street parking, an amazing location and great rooms.

This was the first B+B I have ever visited. The Innkeeper set a classy and peaceful atmosphere. The food was delicious. This trip has set the bar for any other B+B I will stay at in the future.
