Policies & Frequently Asked Questions

Cape May Inn

Reservations are highly recommended. A deposit of 50% of the total cost of the reservation is required to secure your reservation at the Mason Cottage, Cape May B&B. To do so, this amount will be charged to the specified credit card with the balance due upon arrival. A two night minimum stay on the weekends, during the summer-season and holidays is required.

Please note: In the case of a one night stay, the full amount of the room charge will be applied to the specified credit card.

The Mason Cottage is an intimate Cape May Bed and Breakfast Inn and, consequently, cancellations affect us significantly.

Cancellation Policy:

All cancellations are subject to a $25 cancellation fee. Aside from the $25 fee, there are no other additional charges for room cancellations or package plan cancellations with at least 10 days advance notice. No-shows or cancellations made within 10 days of the arrival date will result in a charge equal to the first nights room charge or in the case of package plans... $150.00 per person.

Refund Policy:

Any guest canceling with at least 10 days advance notice, will be refunded with a credit to the credit card used at the time of purchase within five (5) business days.

Children Policy:

Well-behaved children 12 and over are always welcome at the Mason Cottage.

ABSOLUTELY NO Open Flames permitted!:

For the safety of everyone in the inn, the use of open flames (candles, incense, matches, lighters etc.) is STRICTLY prohibited. Any guest found using candles, incense, matches, lighters etc. will be asked to leave the inn without a refund. Please note - the inn has a very sensitive hardwired fire alarm system - the slightest amount of smoke will cause the alarm to go off and the fire department to be called.
