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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Great place to be cozy and have a quiet family vacation. Close to franklin and Nashville, and the creek is wonderful for the kids to play. Dusk brings tons of fireflies!

A magical experience for me and my whole family. A truly special place on a beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

This vacation property was perfect for my family and I. The setting was serene. Quite a special place. Knowing the history of the house made our experience rich and unique. The layout and design of the house was ideal. Many family members said they wanted to move in. We can't wait to come back again next year!

Owner's Response: Want to move int!!!!! That is awesome. I am so happy you all enjoyed the "magical experience" of Creekside Cottage. It's location is fantastic as it allows you to relax in a quiet setting beside a flowing creek enjoying what nature has to offer. The cottage is an old church that has been renovated into the amazing cottage with so much history. Te open floor plan lends itself to a fantastic family get together time. Please do come back and stay with us the next time you want to come to this area. Sandy .
