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 Franklin 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.

Fabulous cottage for our reunion in Nashville

  • 5 of 5

I needed a place for me and my three college roommates to stay for our college reunion. I looked all around Nashville and thought this cottage in historic Leiper’s Fork might work well. We loved the location, setting, scenery, and being only 35 minutes from downtown Nashville. Wonderfully decorated with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Great communication from Sandy. I would highly recommend this cottage and would definitely stay again.

Cottage Visit Like Coming Home

  • 5 of 5

This was my second trip to Loafer's Glory in magical Leiper's Fork, TN, and staying there again was like coming home! It's just the most welcoming place to spend a few days. The furnishings are lovely and totally comfortable, and it's my favorite place to relax and enjoy the space and the surroundings. My companion fell in love with the front porch and spent a great deal of time enjoying the scenery and the peace that is Leiper's Fork. If I could give this home-away-from-home more than five stars, I'd do it in a heartbeat! Can't wait to go back soon...

Owner's Response: Claudia, It was wonderful having you for the second time staying in Loafer's Glory, "your home away from home." That is the best endorsement you could give the cottage. The 5 star review is greatly appreciated ,as well ,but the thoughts you shared for future guests to read speak volumes to others who are looking for their perfect place to spend a few day. Leiper's Fork is such a quaint little Village an no better place to spend some time relaxing, browsing through the little shops finding treasures to take back with you, enjoying live music, eating at great little restaurants, and sitting on the front porch or back patio making many memories. Once again thanks for the rave reviews and you can keep on ranking Laofer's Glory as high as you desire. :-) Hope to see you again real soon.They say 3rd time is charm!!!! Hmmmm....gotta come back and see. Sandy

Wonderful weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loafer's Glory was the perfect spot for high school friends to reunite for a long weekend. The cottage is absolutely lovely. It is decorated beautifully, very clean, and had everything we needed. The front porch was the perfect spot for coffee each morning and late evening visits. Thank you for a lovely place to visit!

Owner's Response: You know there is nothing like reconnecting with your high school friends an I am so happy you selected Loafer's Glory for this reunion. Thank you so much for sharing your experience at the cottage. My goal is for every guest to feel right at home when they stay. Get away time is so special that the place you stay needs to be special as well. I pass by the cottage a lot on my way back and forth to places and I did see you girls sitting on the front porch several times. Please make this a yearly event. Would love to share Loafer's Glory with you every year for this special get-together. Thanks also for the 5 star review. Sandy
