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.

Sweet little cottage in Leiper's Fork

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage. The decor is absolutely lovely. The furnishings were thoughtful and well planned. Such an eye for detail ! Often I would catch myself just sitting and taking it all in. We always love visiting the area and this time was certainly no different. I must also say that the owner was fantastic about answering my questions and was quick to respond to any concerns. Leiper's Fork is certainly an enchanting town and Loafer's Glory provides the perfect little getaway we all need from time to time . ❤️

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your 5 star review. So happy to hear you enjoyed Loafer's Glory and mentioned all the great places to eat right in Leiper's Fork. For such a small quaint village we certainly have a lot to offer visitors to our village. The 18_92 Restaurant is fairly new to the Fork but a real hit for a an upscale meal , yet all the other restaurants are fantastic with their southern comfort food. The many shops offer a variety of choices for your shopping pleasure. Look forward to having to return for another visit. Hurry back, Sandy

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.

Owner's Response: Your 5 star review is greatly appreciated. You were so gracious with your compliments on the cottage. Future guests always like to hear from guests who stayed before them to make their decisions about reservations. I don't think you left out one thing about the cottage....decor, location, spacious, private, quiet, and best of all that you always wished you had booked for a longer stay. Since this was your second stay be sure you do that for your next visit. Leiper's Fork is a great little quaint village that welcomes you to come spend time in the area and let us treat you like family. It is close enough to visit Franklin, Nashville and then hurry on back to relax an enjoy some southern comfort. Thanks again for your review and recommending Loafer' s Glory to friends and family. Hurry back !! Sandy
