“Perfect B&B in Cape May, NJ”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

It doesn't get better than this! Every aspect of our stay was wonderful. Very friendly host and guests. Beautiful decor and rooms. Breakfasts yummy but not low-cal. Scones and tea in the afternoon. Walk out the door and you are a block from ocean, shops, horse-drawn carriages and much more in this charming Victorian town on the gorgeous Jersey Shore.

We stayed in the Decatur Suite at the Mason Cottage for two nights. The inn is not overly fancy but very comfortable and relaxing. Patti the inn keeper is friendly and cooks delicious treats for afternoon tea and yummy breakfasts. There's candy, coffee, and tea available 24 hours a day. Our room had a jacuzzi but the jets did not work and the shower is very small but that is the only downside. It's in a great location with a nice wrap around porch.

Dear Kimberly:

Thank you for your wonderful review. I know we are not what you folks were hoping for in Jamaica but I am so happy we could accommodate your last minute trip and your husband is feeling better. I do wish you would have mentioned the Jacuzzi jets while you were here. We do test the jets between each check out with our cleaning procedures and they were in fact working. We installed timers for each of our tubs to ensure safety and comfort for all of our guests and that is located on the wall in each bathroom. In addition, there are dials in each tub for security as well. On occasion one of those dials may have been turned off by accident. We apologize for your inconvenience and look forward to your return visit!

We have been coming to the Mason Cottage twice a year for five years. It is immaculate, close to shopping, dining and the beach. Patti is the best innkeeper in town,with suggestions for dining, fun experiences, booking spa appointments and making reservations at the town's best dining venues. Her breakfasts are beyond compare!!!

We love it so much that we rented a suite for my stepchildren this visit and they love it too. We are all very excited to have booked our suites for Thanksgiving week, which is my birthday this year!

We always stay in the Davis suite, a spacious, comfortable, beautiful suite on the second floor. My stepchildren stayed in the Warne suite just above the Davis and they loved it.

If you are looking for a wonderful, fabulously situated inn with a great atmosphere and the best innkeeper in town, check out the Mason Cottage. You simply cannot find a better stay in Cape May!!!!

Room Tip: Davis Suite is wonderful on the second floor, but if you don't mind the steps, the Warne on the...

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful B & B a few weekends ago. It was our last "getaway" before a new baby joins our family. What a fantastic time we had! We initially chose this B & B for three reasons: it was a walking distance to the shops and the beach, it was reasonably priced, and we had a bedandbreakfast.com giftcard. I'm SO glad we ended up here!

This B & B is very warm and inviting. Patty, who runs the place, is welcoming, friendly, and had great suggestions of places to eat and visit. The breakfasts and coffee were excellent, tasty and well presented in a relaxed atmosphere. We also met some really great other couples while we were visiting.

Our room was clean, cozy, and comfortable. The shower was a little on the small side, with water pressure that left something to be desired, but other than that, everything was wonderful. Besides, all of the charm of this B & B made up for that very small observation. Besides, in homes as old and beautiful as these, some of that is to be expected. It has a nice sitting room when you walk in the door and a beautiful porch to enjoy a nice breeze after a day of sightseeing and shopping.

We look forward to our next visit to Cape May and wouldn't hesitate at all to come back here again! Enjoy your stay!

The Mason Cottage is just beautiful, in a place where each inn is nicer than the next. It has a great location, near the beach and the town, close to shopping. We lived sleeping in the Ware room on the second floor -- we could hear the waves at night. Breakfast was great, they had 24 hour coffee and candy available. Clean, quiet -- what more could you want in a charming place like Cape May?
