We just returned from the perfect two-night getaway at The Mason Cottage from June 12-14. This was our very first time there and actually our very first B&B visit ever! The inn was absolutely lovely, and our innkeeper Patti couldn't have been nicer. The location is perfect, a block from the beach and within walking distance to the Washington Street Mall shops. The breakfasts were truly gourmet. We were in the Davis Suite, which had bright windows, a sitting area with fireplace, and even a Jacuzzi tub! Our suite was spotless, decorated perfectly, and cozy. The little extras truly make the Mason Cottage the perfect choice if you're heading to Cape May...free use of bicycles and beach chairs, convenient and free parking right outside on the street, and an afternoon tea from 3-4 which was such a nice pick-me-up in the late afternoon. I can't say enough positives about the wonderful time we had. Thanks to our innkeeper Patti, we are definitely going to be B&B'ers for life!!! We can't wait to return to The Mason Cottage....we loved it!

We recently enjoyed one of the best weekends ever at a B&B. The Mason Cottage is clean, comfortable and ideally located. I was thrilled when Patti, the innkeeper, was able to accommodate my gluten free diet. The location allowed us to park on Friday and never move the car again until checking out on Sunday. We were within walking distance of the beach, restaurants and shopping. We hope to return again and again to this delightful B&B.

We had a great stay at The Mason Cottage this week! We usually stay in B&B's and this one ranks at the top of our list. Patti was an amazing hostess and wonderful cook. The breakfasts were delicious.....I miss the French Toast Casserole already!! The afternoon Tea Time was always good and very welcome after a busy day walking and biking around town. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable! We loved the availability of bikes to use and found that to be the best way to get around. We highly recommend this lovely B&B and plan to return...probably in the fall for a different perspective!
