About Woody Mason

This is our second home and our vacation paradise, not just a rental income property. We have enjoyed hiking and motorcycling in the area for over 15 years and wanted a more permanant place to stay that felt more like home. We are so very thankful to be able to share our retreat with a joyful heart.

Please enjoy Stoneybrook Cottage as much as we do!

Woody Mason purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Woody Mason chose Tennessee

After looking at other properties is East Tennessee and western North Carolina, we discovered what is locally known as the Rock House. It was built by a local lumber / saw-mill baron in the 1950's for his personal retreat. It was then and is now truly unique. There is a calming influence permeating the cottage, allowing us to relax and re-charge from our busy schedules. We enjoy hiking for recreation and there are many trails to explore close by. We are also avid motorcyclists and this area provides so many great riding experiences and sightseeing opportunities that we haven't made a dent in them so far. Many vacation homes are newly constructed log cabins, sometimes built in almost cookie-cutter, sub-division fashion. Stoneybrook Cottage stands alone and it has the comforting feeling of returning home each time we arrive.

What makes this cottage unique

Stoneybrook Cottage is also a bird watchers paradise. We have feeders for our many bird visitors and bird watchers alike. Humming birds abound along with more varieties than I can count.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Woody,

Our stay in the cottage was wonderful. We could open up the windows in the bedroom, the bathroom and the kitchen and didn't have to turn on the air-conditioner which enabled us to go to sleep and wake up with the the birds and frogs Everything was clean. We would like to compliment you for the way the cottage has been taken care of. Everything we needed was there-you didn't forget anything! We hope we can return next year.

A Snowbird's Dream

  • 5 of 5

While staying at this charming cottage, my sister and I were able to explore the area and test out the Tennessee winter. Everyone said that this winter was a mild one. It only snowed once during the two-month stay. It was the perfect jumping off point to finding a retirement home in the area. People in the area were warm and welcoming. When my sister joined me we were able to find a house in 5 weeks and handle many of the reality and banking needs. It was just the small town atmosphere we were looking for with many local sites within easy driving distance. Pigeon Forge is an hour and a half north and Chatanooga is the same distance south. The Cherohala Skyway which starts in Tellico Plains is only minutes away so you are nestled in the foothills of the Smokies.

The only drawback that we experienced was that there was no cell phone reception and the Internet connection was slow and spotty. Since this was not the main purpose of our visit we were able to adjust and make our calls when we were in town and the public libraries in the area have Internet access if you need better speed and steady connection.

Overall we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this cottage to family and friends. Whether you are looking for a weekend or a longer stay this is the place to visit if you want to explore Eastern Tennessee.

A quaint little place

  • 4 of 5

A very quaint little place. It was a perfect setting for a weekend with the girls.

I gave a four due to the structure damage. The floors are very uneven due to the foundation shifting.

This also left cracks in the walls which made the cottage drafty. I could not get the fireplace to work either.

This little place would be great in the warmer months.

Owner's Response: We are really happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed the charm of the 65 year old stone cottage that is certainly not in the cookie cutter vacation rental vein. One persons 'damage' is someone else's old school charm. I do wish that there had been a phone call from the guest, because I can usually help folks resolve performance issues, making for a more perfect vacation. I always tell guests to call me if there is an issue they can't resolve. All it takes is a phone call and while there isn't good cell service in the valley for some folks, there is a land line just for that purpose. I can't help fix what I don't know about and I strive for perfection. Our cleaning folks got the fireplace to start right up when I asked them to look into the situation. So, please come back again so we can do better next time; and because our guest was from Florida, a warmer weather visit might yield better results. Please try us again.

Wonderful. Close to lots of nature. Really enjoyed Cherokee National Forest. We saw our very first bald eagle flying up the Tellico River near Tellico Plains. Cottage is awesome.

Highly recommend.

Stoney Brook Labor Day 2016

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect get away! The cabin was clean and neat with perfect accommodations. We were able to enjoy the peaceful view from the front porch while enjoying the fire in the fire pit. The owner was very mindful in anticipating the occupants needs. We had a bbq grill to use and firewood was provided for the fire pit. We will definitely be back!

Great quiet, secluded and comfortable lodging in the Appalachian foothills.

  • 5 of 5

We are from Franklin and were on a weekend getaway to East Tennessee and the mountains. We wanted someplace far from the traffic and crowds of Gatlinburg but close enough to the high country for sightseeing and hiking. Stony Brook Cottage met and exceeded all of our requirements. With everything from BBQ grills to rockers on the porch to trails down to a small stream across the road, the Cottage has all the modern conveniences including satellite TV, central AVHC and entertainment tables in the front and back yard.

We plan on a return visit soon and would recommend it to anyone looking for a laid back getaway in the mountains.

Perfect spot for a Mother/Daughter Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed at Stoneybrook Cottage over the Memorial Day weekend for a short but much needed mother/daughter getaway. We absolutely loved the cottage! We were exited to find it sparkling clean, decorated with unique antique furniture with fun touches like antique hats, a pipe holder and antique pictures and fully stocked with everything we could need in the kitchen. The bedrooms are beautiful and very comfortable. The pillows in the master bedroom are the most comfortable I have ever slept on (we plan to buy a set for our own beds!). The bathroom was clean as well. The wireless internet works great although we didn't need use it much choosing to enjoy each other's company instead. We visited the nearby Ingles grocery store for weekend grocery supplies and made ourselves at home for our stay. We watched movies and ate dinner in the living room both nights (thanks for the easy-to-follow DVD instructions) and also made great use of the rocking chairs on the front porch for late night chats and breakfast coffee. We didn't have time to build a fire but there are two perfect spots for it if weather and time allow. There are little touches all around the cottage that make this such a special place. We shared our time on the porch with a bird nesting her eggs on a specially made perch and enjoyed the view of the mountains in the distance as we sat and peacefully spent our time together. This is a wonderful place that is comfortable and clean and much like staying at home and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area. Tourist attractions like the Lost Sea Adventure, the Ocoee River and Hiwassee River are close yet far enough away to allow for peace and quiet during all hours of the day. We drove into Tellico Plains and enjoyed the bakery for breakfast and Tellico Cats for a lovely lunch overlooking the river. We plan to be back as soon as we can schedule another trip. Thank you for helping us make some very special memories!
