Why Sandy Dorris chose Tennessee

The cottage is actually located in Fairview, Tennessee not far at all from Franklin TN and the small village of Leiper's Fork Tn is just an extraordinary place that you must visit as it is so close. You don't meet a stranger. When you arrive, you are home. This beautiful structure was built in 1859 and was originally a church! It was restored in 2007 using as much of the original structure and wood as possible inside and out. You will absolutely fall in love with this gorgeous property. It just takes you somewhere cozy and warm and full of life!

What makes this cottage unique

There is simply no place, anywhere like it! This magical home is truly one of a kind! Whether enjoying a home cooked meal with your friends, gathering around the fireplace and flat screen for a good movie, or hanging on the back porch listening to the babbling waterfall, this place IS the place to vacation. Rest and relaxation is a must on vacation... This incredible, jaw dropping escape truly provides that with all the comforts of home. Fully furnished and fully equipped with all luxury linens, cookwares and service needs. So many things to do just a few of miles away! Come stay with us! The greatest way to experience beautiful Tennessee.

Absolutely Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Creekside Cottage for a long girls weekend and from the moment we pulled in the driveway we all were in awe of the serenity! The inside was just beautiful and very clean. we all loved the kitchen with the stone island counter top.

Fairview is just a beautiful town and there is so many things to do in the area - we went Kayaking on the Harpeth River - only a 20 minute drive and was breath taking!!

Dorothy was amazing to work with and always responded to my emails in a very timely manner. I have never been more relaxed with renting a house like I was with this one. Everything went smooth and without any problems.

I would highly recommend staying at the Creekside Cottage - you will not be disappointed!!

The cottage was clean, well decorated, and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay. The kids loved the creek. There are so many windows downstairs which allows natural lighting to shine through. It makes you feel one with nature. If we are ever back again would definitely stay here. The only minor hiccup was that we could not get a the DVD to work.

Owner's Response: So happy you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. Glad you were able to enjoy all that nature provides surrounding the cottage. Getting away from the daily routine of things is so good for the soul. That creek out back is certainly a draw to all the guests. Please make plan to visit once again. Thanks again for your review. Sandy

Enjoyed the burbling stream and well-appointed accomodations

  • 4 of 5

You too are going to want to take your morning coffee out on the patio next to the stream or sit in the Adirondack chairs on the back porch. In the evening we enjoyed listening to the nighttime chorus of insects and watching fireflies from the front porch swing. Lovely spot, very little traffic on the nearby road. The kitchen was very nice with a hand-hammered copper sink, commercial kitchen sized fridge, and other amenities like a 4 slice toaster and coffee maker. The house also puts the Master in the master bedroom, spacious and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your 5 star review. You know, so many of my guests do enjoy sitting out on the back porch listening to, and watching the creek as it flows passed the cottage. It is just so relaxing. There seem to e something about nature that offers a serene feeling when we finally take time to relax and listen. You said you loved the master bedroom which is located on the main floor with the large walk in bath. So happy that worked for you. Please do share your stay with friends and family so they, too, can enjoy a stay at Crekside Cottage in the future. Thanks again, Sandy

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful quaint cottage in a quiet setting other than the ciccadas, lol. The side porch is a quiet place to have your morning coffee. I stayed in one of the smaller bedrooms upstairs facing the road and it was very comfy and quiet. This property is 40 minutes to downtown Nashville and about the same to Franklin. Recommend visiting the Lotz Museum, Carter House and The Carnton Plantation as well as Lieper's Fork. There were 6 in our group and the cottage was plenty large enough. The large table was great for game nights and hearty breakfasts. I would totally recommend this place for people who like to visit the sites during the day but relax and rewind at night.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your 5 star review. Sorry the cicadas can get a little loud at night . I think they like to sing just for the guests while they are sitting outside listening to the creek. Their way of saying "hey we are here too." Glad you enjoyed the open floor plan as it does make it easy for the guests to all get together an enjoy games, meals, conversation, and just doing fun things. I would love to have you as returning guests in the future. Tell your friend sand family about the cottage please. Sandy

Wonderful property, beautiful comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the home very much. Plenty of room for games and family gatherings. The bedrooms were all very well appointed and comfortable. We enjoyed watching the waterfall.

There was a lot of rainfall that week and so there really was a lot of water falling! We would definitely return here in the future!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your 5 star review. I am so sorry the weather was so rainy for you.....rate the weather 1 star! LOL The cottage does lend itself to having fun with family and friends. The back porch is my favorite place to sit and watch the creek and just enjoy what nature has to offer around the cottage. Please tell your friends and family about the renovated church you stayed in so they too can come an enjoy a stay at Creekside Cottage. Look forward to having you come s stay with me again in the near future. Sandy
