About Sandy Dorris

Living in this area for years now has been such a wonderful experience for me. I am so happy to now have LOAFER'S GLORY to share with others so they too can enjoy stepping back in time in the quaint little Village of Leiper's Fork. Down home feel, live music in the village, quaint shops , art galleries, good eating, friendly people, close to downtown square of Franklin, peaceful and quiet times sitting on front porch sipping your morning coffee, or sight seeing to Natchez Trace, downtown Nashville....wineries close by.. trail riding, you name it.

I am looking forward to sharing my little piece of heaven with others so they too may experience what rural Leiper's Fork has to offer.

Being retired now gives me more opportunity to share my cottage and village with you....LOAFER'S GLORY is waiting to give you the royal pamper experience. I am all about sharing the "glory!"

Sandy Dorris purchased this house in 2013

Why Sandy Dorris chose Franklin

This property has everything to offer you, my guests, the best of everything. It is located in the quaint little village of Leiper's Fork which is know "world wide" as the place to visit. People come here from far and near just to experience the down home feeling of staying in a rural town yet so close to so many things to do. Everyone who visits always tell me they wanted to stay longer, they want to come back for a return stay, and yes "they want to move here." It happens over and over and I do get many return guests. So my little stone cottage, LOAFER'S GLORY, lets me share everything about this area with all who choose to stay here. My cottage has been designed and appointed with YOU in mind. Great thought has gone in to making it warm, comfortable, and inviting. It sits nestled back on the property making it very quiet and peaceful, allows you to sit on front or side porch and no one sees you enjoying your relaxing time, and is 2 minutes from all that goes on in the village ie: live music, quaint shopping, a variety of places to eat, trails to ride or hike, wineries, art galleries, sightings of many famous artists who have chosen this community to live in just because they can appreciate it's beauty and the people here who allow them their personal privacy . LOAFER'S GLORY is situated right where it needs to be for the perfect get away for my current and future guests. Wanna drive to the square of downtown Nashville then you can be there in 8 minutes, wanna drive to downtown Nashville then you can be there in 25 minutes,,,,,but guarantee you will always want to return to Loafer's Glory Cottage to just chill and relax...until time to get up and go again or just sit a spell. i look forward to sharing my gem of a cottage with you soon.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic views, cool shade from the many trees, garage parking for guest cars. Private setting nestled back from the road. Close to all that goes on in the village of Leiper's Fork.

Totally renovated and updated with everything one could wish for in their VRBO get away. It was truly designed with my guests in mind.... Come and see for yourself and you will find it is exactly as you see in the pictures.

Amazing - A perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is everything the pictures show and more. Sandy could not have been more helpful with our stay. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, the lovely view from the front porch and shopping/eating in Liepers Fork. I highly recommend this rental for anyone looking to get away from the city and enjoy a quiet but fun weekend.

MY ALL-TIME-FAVORITE

  • 5 of 5

Wow......what an awesome cottage. It looks exactly like the photos. Loved it the minute I walked in the door. The openness of the cottage was amazing. We enjoyed the location as it was so close to Leiper's Fork Village. Loved the little shops, the music at Puckett's, Country Boy Restaurant , and 1892 Restaurant. We went to downtown Franklin, and Nashville but always happy to get back to your charming cottage.

The beds slept better than mine at home and we loved the walk in shower.The decor looks like something straight out of a magazine. I got so many decorating ideas .

Will definitely come back for another stay in the future.

Cute Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here 3 nights. The cottage was clean and very well decorated. Lots of windows for natural lighting to shine through. I loved waking up early in the morning and seeing the cows in the distance on the hill directly across the street from the house. There was a very chilled vibe there which was exactly what we needed!
