About Mason Cottage, A Victorian Bed and Breakfast Cape May New Jersey

The Mason Cottage is a lovely country Victorian Bed & Breakfast located in the historic town of Cape May, New Jersey. The inn is OPEN ALL YEAR and just one block from the beach and promenade and 2 blocks from many fine shops and intimate restaurants.

Built in 1871 as a private summer residence for Edward A. Warne, a wealthy Philadelphia entrepreneur, the Mason Cottage is the perfect getaway for guests who appreciate the peaceful and charming lifestyle of a by-gone era. The Mason Cottage is endowed with lofty ceilings, full-length windows and a sweeping veranda, all so characteristic of Victorian homes of the period.

The current owners acquired the home in early 2009 and have lovingly renovated their Cape May Bed and Breakfast blending history with modern sensibility. The same charm and friendly atmosphere created in the last 60 years of guest operations continues today in full force, with some new modern touches we hope you'll enjoy.


There are nine lovely antique appointed rooms/suites to choose from, each with private baths, flat screen TV\'s and I-Pod docking station. Most suites feature a Jacuzzi jet tub, fireplace, mini-refrigerator and Turkish cotton bathrobes.
