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 Tennessee

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.

Sorry this review is so late, thought it went on earlier. I apologize now if I ramble but there is soo much to love about this place!! I really wanted to somehow bring it home. It is just as beautiful as the pictures. The cottage is immaculate and so peaceful. The décor is gorgeous, from elegant to shabby chic to rustic farmhouse. We had the king bedroom and I had the best sleep in a long time, so comfy!! The shower is fantastic with its waterfall shower and regular shower as well. Again, cottage is just simply divine. We had been to Nashville several months prior so we stayed around Leiper's Fork and into Franklin. Loved spending the evenings on the front porch and just relaxing. All I can say is rent this cottage, you will fall in love with it. Can't wait to go back!!! Thanks for a great stay!

Quaint & Charming

Love this cottage! It was a great place to relax after shopping all day in Franklin,Tn. Nice view and beautiful country sides. It's close enough to Nashville and Franklin but far enough to be out of the hustle and bustle. It very clean and peaceful. The owner was great to work with. Looking forward to staying again.

Our sister weekend at the Loafers Glory exceeded our expectations !

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just the right size for our sister weekend. (4 of us) The decor and the furnishings were lovely. The beds very comfortable. We enjoyed the porch although it was a bit cobwebby. Nothing we couldn't take care of. We enjoyed spending the afternoon in Leipers Fork just a few minutes away. Would stay there again.

This beautifully decorated stone cottage was CLEAN, comfy and quiet. A peaceful setting among the Tennesee countryside, a scenic 45 minute drive to Nashville. The owner was very good to work with, and responded promptly.

A once in a lifetime experience

  • 5 of 5

If i could I would wrap this charming house up in my suitcase and take it back to Sweden! We loved everything about it. The house is big enough for 4 and had everything we needed. It is very tastefully decorated and gave us a genuine Leipers Fork feeling.

I have travelled a lot in the US and rented several properties through another website but this experience in Leipers Fork is far the best we ever had. We would definately stay in Sandys house the next time we visit Leipers Fork!

If you have a need for a personal drive to take you to downtown Nashville, Franklin, or to airport call James Moore. 615-479-2183 . You can discuss with him you needs and make reservations to use his service. They are not paid by the cottage. He charges by the hour with a 3 hour minimum....$50 per hour + tip. Many of my guests use him as the DUI penalty is very strict and enforced in Tennessee.
