About The Owner

We moved to the mountains from the South Carolina coast in 1998. While I've been a financial advisor for over 30 years, our move allowed Jeannie to pursue a dream of opening a small business... The Jeweler's Workbench... in downtown Waynesville. After a successful 10 year run, she sold her gallery and is now enjoying the 'retirement lifestyle.'

When purchasing our residence several years ago, we discovered that we had a 'hidden gem' located at the back of our property ... a small cottage in total disrepair... awaiting a facelift. After several years of constant attention, The Cottage has now been transformed into a charming getaway for all to enjoy.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose Waynesville

We started vacationing in the area in the early nineties and immediately fell in love with the mountains, the people and the opportunities for a better quality of life. We finally decided it would be less costly to simply move to the Waynesville area... considering we were vacationing in the area 3 to 4 times a year!

What makes this cottage unique

While The Cottage has maintained its classic style and appeal, the property offers guests all of the modern conveniences and comforts of home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay at The Cottage, with all the little touches…wine, fruit and Sadie especially like her water and food dishes a greatly appreciated the doggie treats.



The distance from the cottage to the town was another plus! We hope to make it back and would love to stay at The Cottage again. Thanks so Much :-)

Relaxing and perfectly located!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a gem! Tom was great to work with and he takes all the guessing out of the process. He provided a great package of information regarding restaurants, breweries, hikes, etc. Within walking distance of downtown and convenient to all of our outdoor activity destinations. The cottage is perfectly restored and impeccably clean and presented....clearly done with guests in mind. No doubt that it will always be our number one choice when staying in the area. Can't wait to return!

Comfortable accommodations in the heart of Waynesville, NC.

  • 5 of 5

Small cottage provides all the comforts of home. Owned / managed by Tom & Jeannie Tracy, the property is short walk / couple blocks from downtown Waynesville, NC. Area outdoor activities galore, shopping, and outstanding restaurants all before you. Our visit was during the Church Street Art Festival during Oct 13-14, which is among the premier mountain festivals each Fall Season. You will not be disappointed! Great Stay!

'The Cottage' at 19 Short Street, Waynesville is advertised as a historic property, but it has been modernized with every amenity and touch you could imagine. Perfect for couple seeking fun or relaxation in the beauty of the North Carolina Mountains. -- Jimmy Donn

Awsome property. Hidden Jewel

  • 5 of 5

Mr. Tom Tracy is a great host. Everything went as expected. This is a hidden jewel. Tucked away in a very quiet neighborhood . Near all the activities in Waynesville. The best review I can offer is that I will return.
