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.

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.

Sad to leave

  • 5 of 5

Loafer's Glory was our home away from home for a month and we couldn't have asked for more. This incredibly charming cottage looks like something out of Pottery Barn and had everything we could want. It was the charming site of a number of dinners and gatherings with old friends plus a comfortable haven for the two of us. Well located in the charming village of Leipers Fork and only minutes away from the major charm of downtown Franklin, this was the absolute perfect spot to soak up the local beauty and culture. Couldn't have asked for more which is why we will be back next year!

Owner's Response: I want to thank you so much for your 5 star raving review. After spending a month in my cottage you certainly know about the uniqueness of all that is offered. It is my goal for all my guests to feel as if it is their "home away from home." Thanks for sharing your thoughts about charming, comfortableness, haven-like, location, and the over all experience that you and your husband had during your stay. Loved that you invited your friends over as well. Thanks again and I will be looking forward to having you as returning guests. The WELCOME SIGN is always out! Sandy

Perfect, perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home. It was perfect. If I could buy the place and move it to where we live I would. Small but spacious and perfectly outfitted and decorated. Then the location was fantastic. We loved the little town and the area around. Good combination of quiet and things to do. I know I keep saying perfect but it really was. The perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. We hope to be back.

Owner's Response: I just love to hear the word perfect from my guests. The whole purpose of the cottage is so my guests will feel right at home and have a "perfect" time for their get-away. Not a better time than to celebrate an anniversary. The little Village of Leiper's Fork offers so much to do, an is close to downtown Franklin for an extra bonus. Love to have you return. Sandy

Can't wait to visit again!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem! My husband and I stayed for a long weekend and couldn't have been any happier with the cottage. The size was perfect, the decor to die for, the amenities were perfect, and the location was gorgeous. We thought we were staying in Franklin, but Liepers Fork was even better. Loved all of the farmland in and out of town. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone and told my husband that I wanted to live in this beautiful rental!

Owner's Response: Thanks for calling my cottage a "gem." I can't think of a better word to describe the cottage. Yes, the area has so much to offer and the location of the cottage in Leiper's Fork is an added bonus. The cottage will be there waiting for your return visit. Thanks so much for the 5 star rating. It's my guests that make the cottage so special. Sandy

Comfy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Loafer's cottage is a special place of comfort and beauty. The cottage is set up on a hill so you look over a valley of beauty. We spent a couple hours on the porch chatting and enjoying the view. It felt like we were in a 5 star suite with the interior decor, comfortable beds, granite counter tops and gas fireplace. We loved the location as it is not too far from Franklin. One of my daughter's commented, "What a perfect place for an autumn get away."

Owner's Response: So happy you all took the time to see all the surrounding beauty from the front porch of the cottage. Many times I drive by and see my guests sitting on the porch enjoying drinking coffee and simply relaxing. We don't seem to take the time to do that much these days. The location in Leiper's Fork is perfect as one can enjoy the quaintness of the small village yet be very close to the downtown area of Franklin, Tn. Be sure to schedule you some more time at my cottage real soon. Look forward to hearing back from you and having you as returning guests. Sandy
