Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 July 2013

You have to just absolutely love this place. Every time my wife and I go there it gets better. It's great to see that each time we go back there, there are new things that have been done between our stays to make the Inn even more beautiful than it already is. This year they have redone the Davis suite with all new furniture, fresh coats of paint and also remodeled the office and check in area. Again the staff there is great, food excellent and great rooms...

See you in August for the whole week next time!!!!

Room Tip: Pretty much every room we have stayed in is great. The Davis has recently had some renovations done...

We have stayed several times at The Mason Cottage. After trying several other B&B's, we feel the most comfortable here. The rooms are clean, the food is delicious and the Innkeeper Patti is the best! She is always so welcoming and friendly. The location is great because you can park your car and walk to the beach and Washington Square Mall. At the end of the day you can enjoy tea and a fresh baked snack in a rocker on the front porch. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Ware room is nice and so is Decatur Suite

We had never been to Cape May before so we read the reviews on this site. That is how we found our way to The Mason Cottage B&B. The location is perfectly located and a short walk to wherever you would want to go. The breakfast each of our three days was fantastic and accommodating to the diabetic in our group. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable. We stayed in the Warne Suite (at the tippy top) and enjoyed the extra living room space to watch the NBA playoff game. We used the bikes, which are in great condition, were available at a moment's notice, and in cute colors. One of our highlights was Patti. She greeted us with a friendly and sincere smile every morning. We missed tea time each day but enjoyed lively music nearby at the Mad Batter. We would definitely come back here.

Thanks to a gift from a generous son, my husband and I recently enjoyed one of the best weekends ever at a B&B. Our stay was highlighted by comfortable surroundings and wonderful food (enjoyed both mornings on the comfortable front porch). You can only imagine how thrilled I was when Patti, was able to accommodate my gluten free diet. I even was served gf French toast! Patti quietly pointed out the gluten free offerings at tea time as well. The location is fantastic. It is within walking distance of the beach, restaurants and the Washington St mall. After parking the car on Friday, we never moved it again until checking out on Sunday. We hope to return time and time again to this wonderful B&B.

Room Tip: The upper 2 floors would offer more quiet accommodations.

Just returned from a two-night stay at The Mason Cottage in Cape May, NJ, and absolutely loved it! It is centrally located in the heart of the Victorian district, one block from the beach, and very close to the Washington Street Mall, so you're within an easy walking distance of everything. Parking is on the street and free of charge, so no need to worry about having to keep putting money in meters! The inn itself is lovely; our suite (The Davis Suite) was beautiful, complete with a sitting room with a fireplace, a Jacuzzi tub in our bathroom, and two robes for our use! It was warm, cozy, and perfect for our getaway. But what made our stay even more perfect was the innkeeper, Patti. She couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating! The breakfasts she served were delicious, tea time with Patti's baked treats from 3-4 was a great pick-me-up after a day of walking around the town, and all the little special touches Patti added made our stay perfect! There were free bicycles to use during our stay, beach chairs had we needed them, a 24 hour pantry if you wanted tea or coffee, and lots of brochures available to get ideas for various things to do in the area. This was our first time to a B & B, and after this wonderful experience it won't be our last. Just beware.....once you stay at The Mason Cottage, you won't ever want to leave!!!

Room Tip: The Davis Suite is wonderful; it's on the 2nd floor and has a sitting room with a tv and firepla...

The property is beautifully maintained and very clean, and we felt welcomed and pampered by Patti and the staff. The afternoon tea was delightful with homemade brownies and cookles. There is a pantry for 24-hour service and an assortment of chocolate treats that are always available. The Franklin Suite (on the 3rd floor) was perfect for our anniversary trip. Breakfast (inside or on the patio) was sumptuous. Free (and easy) parking is available on the street, and you are one block from the beach, two blocks from the Washington Street shops, four blocks from The Washington Inn, and a bike ride (provided by the Mason Cottage) to the rest of the city. You will not be disappointed. We weren't!

Room Tip: The Franklin Suite is on the third floor, an easy walk up two flights of stairs. There is a good si...

I have been a frequent guests of B and B's for many years. I recently spent an overnight at the Mason Cottage with friends, celebrating a birthday. Patti, the innkeeper, was awesome. I knew from the first conversation by phone that this was a special place. From arrival to departure, the three of us had only praise for the Inn and it's keeper. The rooms were spotless, beds very cozy, breakfast of quiche, sausage, muffins, fruit, cereal, coffee, tea, cereal, juice.. a perfect start to the day. We missed the afternoon fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies and tea but we were out on the town, right around the corner from the Inn. Location perfect for beach and shops, but far enough away to be quiet ,easy in and out of town, information about internet, codes, restaurants, times for breakfast, etc... verbal and written for us. very efficient, warm, welcoming, Patti does it perfectly. You know it has been a good stay when you feel so welcome that you don't want to leave!
