About Tom Tracy
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.
Tom Tracy purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Tom Tracy 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!

The Cottage is such a cozy home-away-from-home! Everything you need, and nothing you don’t - the perfect retreat for any couple. Everything was immaculate upon arrival, and Tom made the entire stay, from check-in to check-out, seamless and enjoyable. We’re already looking forward to our return!

The small cottage is perfect for a couple. Convenient to town with gracious hosts. They welcomed us upon our arrival and welcomed our furry friend as well with dog treats and bowls ready to use. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend to our friends.
We really appreciated your time in pointing out the many benefits available to our guests while staying in The Cottage. Also, thanks so much for your kind words regarding our effort to make your visit an enjoyable experience.
It was the best!
We couldn’t have been happier or more comfy and cozy than we were at The Cottage. It is so perfectly equipped, organized and decorated- plus walkable to the quaint downtown of Waynesville. We were greeted by Tom along with cookies and wine for us, and dog biscuits and a special pottery feeding bowl for our dog! As the days became sunnier we enjoyed the outdoor area as well. I admit we’re fairly particular about where we stay, and The Cabin more than met our hopes and needs. We look forward to a return next year.

A very good choice for two people. Close to all the downtown activities; easy to get around town. Very clean. This is our second stay here and it was just as good as we remember our first visit.
We are certainly glad you enjoyed your stay in The Cottage! Of course, thank you for highlighting all the features and benefits offered by The Cottage and Downtown Waynesville.
Cute cottage, close to downtown
The cottage was clean and was very convenient to explore downtown Waynesville. We walked to main street each night for dinner. Tom was a wonderful host and very accommodating, even when our original trip was cancelled due to weather. Highly recommend!
Thanks, Jenn and James, for your wonderful review of The Cottage! Also, it was nice to see your positive comments about the Downtown Waynesville area… offering many dining and shopping experiences… all within a few blocks of The Cottage!
Highly recommend and close to town
Great owners, clean and has everything we needed
Thank you so much for your kind review! Come back soon!
