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.

Love the Stone Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We love this cottage. It is spacious as well as beautifully and comfortably furnished inside and welcoming from the outside. The decor is pleasing to the eye and has been meticulously chosen to enhance the appeal of the cottage and the setting. The location is private and quiet, yet close to everything we want to do in Leiper's Fork, Franklin, and Nashville. Our favorite thing to do while here is to just settle in with a good book in front of the fireplace if it's cold outside or on the covered porch if the weather is nice. When it's time to leave, we always wish we had booked it for a longer stay. This was our second time to stay here and we will definitely choose it again when we are in the area. We will happily recommend it to our friends.

Private Cozy House

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week in Leipers Fork Tennessee staying at this cozy clean house. Except for difficulty seeing in the bathroom, inadequate lighting by sinks and mirrors, and no where to hang clothes in the front bedroom we found it super. Nice small gas fireplace that provides lots of heat, lot's of windows, reliable WiFi, great kitchen and safe parking. Would help to have reflectors down by the road as we found it difficult to locate in the dark.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts concerning your stay at my cottage. I was sorry to hear the lighting was not acceptable in the bathroom for you. I have never had anyone tell me that so I will take another look at what you are saying. The bath in the cottage is so luxurious with it's spa like rain shower, large walk in shower and has lots of natural light. There is a large armoire in the front bedroom with plenty of room for hanging clothes. It does have the sweeper stored in it but plenty of room for hanging clothes I had a hanging rod made and put inside it just for that purpose. Sorry you missed seeing that on the inside of the armoire. The back bedroom has a large rolling clothes rack for any overflow. So happy to hear you were pleased with you stay and enjoyed the fireplace, views, location, and would definitely return for another stay. I would love to have you as a returning guests. Have a Happy New Year. Sandy

Perfect honeymoon getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the cozy stone cottage and Leiper's Fork. It was modern, clean, private and impeccably decorated. The shower was luxurious and the beds incredibly comfortable. We were married in Nashville and chose to unwind here for a few days afterwards. It was the perfect spot to rest and relax but close enough to Franklin and Nashville that we could drive to amazing restaurants and bars when the mood struck. We will definitely be booking another stay at Sandy's amazing property. Thank you for everything!!

Owner's Response: WOW...perfect Honeymoon Get-Away! That is fantastic. I am so happy you chose Loafer's Glory for your honeymoon stay. What a perfect place to come and unwind after all the hectic schedules of planing a wedding. The quaint little Village of Leiepr's Fork is like stepping back in time to take a look at all the nice down home type of things one can chose to do and enjoy the beautiful scenery surrounding this area. My goal is to have every guest that stays in my cottage feels they were pampered a bit and want to return. You expressed the cottage was impeccable, clean, private, and the shower just was a delightful experience. for you. I love ii too!!!! So excited you want to return again in the future for another stay at Loafer's Glory. Maybe you could plan to spend every anniversary right back here at Loafer's Glory. That would be fantastic. Thanks so much for your 5 star review. Sandy

Amazing cottage! Perfect, clean, gorgeous, beautiful decor!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The cottage is beautiful, has all the amenities, and we even cooked while there. The decor is gorgeous and the location perfect. It's just outside of historic Leiper's Fork, right off the Natchez Trace, and close to Franklin for eating out and shopping. It is also close enough for a trip into Nashville too. The cottage is so relaxing and cozy, we spent a lot of time just hanging out by the fire. A perfect get-away for the holidays. The owner replies quickly and thought of everything. Can't recommend enough! We will be back!!!
