Just spent three nights at the Mason Cottage for a wedding weekend. The location on Columbia Ave. is prime. The porch looks straight down Gurney St. to the ocean. It's a nice expansive view with the Abbey and the Seven Sisters lining one side of Gurney St. The Mason Cottage is perfect for walking distance to Cape May's shops, restaurants,...

This was the first trip for the Missus and me to Cape May and we found The Mason Cottage online. It seemed to have tons of good reviews so we booked the "nice room" with the separate living room and a hot tub. The B&B is literally walking distance to the beach (we visited in the Fall so the beach...

We had a great stay at The Mason Cottage in August 2012. We arrived after check-in time, and the innkeeper called to let us know where she'd leave the code, key, etc. The breakfasts were absolutely fabulous. The location is great - very close to the beach, bars and restaurants. The B&B also lets you use bikes, beach chairs, and...

The Mason Cottage is one of the nicer B&B's in Cape May; we have stayed in and we have stayed at at least 15 of them in Cape May; we have been accused of sleeping around vs. being a local customer. Patty adjusted the morning menu to accommodate my food allergies, thank you from the bottom of my heart for...

My husband surprised me with a weekend get away for my birthday! He booked The Mason Cottage. It was one of the few B&B's that we have never been to. We come to Cape May every fall or Christmastime. The inn was very cozy & nice but definately lacking "warmth" the innkeeper was "too herself" and although we were not...

Thank you for your recent review. We certainly appreciate the feedback and are always looking to improve our service. While we strive to achieve the ultimate B&B experience for all of our guests, we do have policies put in place for a reason. If at all possible, we are happy to accommodate folks outside of those policies, such as early...

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

“The stairs to the 2nd & 3rd floors are steep, as you would expect in a Victorian home. Keep this in mind if you have issues with your knees!”
