My husband and I just spent 2 wonderful nights at the Mason Cottage. Everything about this bed and breakfast is perfect and we can't recommend it enough. It is located in the heart of Downtown Cape May, perfectly situated for any activity you may want to do. It's a straight, block and half walk to the beach, there is a...

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...

We wanted to do something different for our 39th anniversary, and even though we have already been to the Mason Cottage, we felt like going back and seeing Patti once again. She is always so accommodating and pleasant to be there with. This time out we rode bikes, which the Cottage provides at no additional charge, and a lot of...

My husband and I spent our anniversary weekend at the Mason Cottage; we just wanted a quiet place to get away from work and family obligations for a couple of days. It was our third visit to Cape May, and the third B&B we've tried - and it will be our B&B of choice from now on. We had the...

This is the second time we have stayed at the Mason Cottage and Patti and her staff continue to amaze in their ability to ensure a peaceful and relaxing vacation. She went out of her way again to provide delicious breakfasts which met my needs due to food allergies. Thanks again for a wonderful stay as we celebrated our anniversary.

We had a great time at The Mason Cottage this past weekend. We stayed in the Grand Mason Suite, which had a small reading room with two comfy chairs, a long hallway, a bright spa room with a soaking tub and massage table (awesome), and a two person shower in a separate private bathroom. Breakfast was wonderful each morning. We...

The Mason Cottage,a great B&B, was the best place we could have stayed. It was close to everything. We parked our car when we arrived and did not get into it again until we left for home. You could see the ocean from our bedroom window. Breakfast every day was great and tea time had tempting goodies as well as...

My wife and I were supposed to come to the Mason Cottage for a weekend in October. However, due to possible flooding from a large storm, we were offered to change our stay, and we ended up picking a weekend in December. Decorated for Christmas, the house was beautiful and the stay and service were just as great. We will...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mason Cottage is a lovely country Victorian B&B located in the heart of historic Cape May. The inn is just one block from the beach and two blocks from many fine shops and restaurants. Built in 1871, the Mason Cottage is endowed with lofty ceilings, full-length windows and a sweeping veranda, all so characteristic of Victorian homes of the period. There are nine lovely antique appointed rooms/suites to choose from, each with a private bath. ... more   less
