A relaxing getaway. Stayed in the grand Mason suite. The first room you walk into is the sitting area and then you walk up a couple steps and their you will come upon the spa room with a two person soaking tub and a massage table. Don't forget to bring your oil. Next is the bathroom with a two person...

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...

I had researched The web regarding different places to stay and when I came across The Mason Cottage I immediately was interested. I booked out room on line and was not disappointed as it was exactly as described. It was like we had our own apartment. It came with a gas fireplace in the sitting room and the bedroom was...

This is our third stay, over the past five years, at The Mason Cottage. My husband and I have always heard how magical Cape May is at Christmastime and we weren't disappointed!

The Mason Cottage provides many lovely rooms. The personnel are courteous . During the summer, however, the downstairs common area was not air conditioned and it was sweltering. There is a dining room for Breakfast but it could no be utilized because of the heat(even in the morning). Thankfully, there are several small tables on the wrap around porch. Bicycles...

Dear Surferboy Maryland, Thank you for your recent review of the Mason Cottage. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay in spite of the heat.

We stayed one night in this charming B&B which was built as a father and son summer cottage in Cape May. This explains the two staircases one for each family, which is quite amusing.
