On April 13, 1779, Mason married Susannah Powell (1761 1836). They had seven children-five daughters and two sons:

In 1780, Mason delivered the annual address marking the Boston Massacre.

He was a Member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives from 1786 to 1796.

Starting in 1795, Mason was a partner in the Mount Vernon Proprietors, a developer of real estate in Boston's Beacon Hill neighborhood. Around 1800 he built a mansion for himself on Mt. Vernon Street, in which he lived through the end of his life. Around 1804 he hired architect Charles Bulfinch to design 4 houses, also on Mt. Vernon Street, for each of his daughters; the 4 houses still stand today.

Mason was also a member of the South Boston Association, which developed real estate in Dorchester.

From 1797 to 1798, he served with the Massachusetts Governor's Council and was elected to the for the following two years, and was in the Massachusetts Senate from 1799 to 1800. Following the resignation of Senator Benjamin Goodhue, he was elected to the U.S. Senate, where he served from November 14, 1800 to March 4, 1803. He then resumed his law practice and served again in the Massachusetts Senate from 1803 to 1804 and the Massachusetts House from 1805 to 1808.

His portrait was painted by Gilbert Stuart in 1805.

He served again in the US House of Representatives from March 4, 1817, to May 15, 1820, whereupon he resigned to pursue his law practice. He died in Boston, at age 75. He is interred in Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
