Why Sandy Dorris chose Franklin

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. Enjoy the 8 seater hot tub located directly outside the master suite while listening to the water fall from the wonderful creek 15 feet away from the secluded back porch! So many things to do just a few of miles away! Come stay with us! The greatest way to experience beautiful Tennessee.

We LOVED your country cottage!

  • 5 of 5
We went for a girls getaway R & R weekend! This was a perfect fit for us. We loved the coziness of the living room with the fireplace, the sound of the waterfall on the back porch was soooo relaxing, and the hot tub was absolutely wonderful! This was a pajama, movie, game playing, kind of weekend! The beds were very comfortable, the towels luxurious, the kitchen was equipped. We felt right at home the minute we stepped through the front door. A perfect 10 with my best friends! This may become a yearly event for us! :)

Owner's Response: Now that's what I call a fun girl's weekend. The cottage lends itself to so many types of special occasions and love to hear that you girls had a relaxing stay while enjoying all that the cottage has to offer. I love hearing the creek beside the cottage as well. Every season has something special to offer to all our guests. Hard to beat the coziness of the fireplace. The beds and linens are chosen carefully so you can enjoy a good night's rest and relax.
Sure hope you all will make this an annual event as it would be great to have you back for another visit.

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Myself and 3 friends from high school stayed at this beautiful home late fall of 2014. It was the perfect place to relax. We found everything to be comfortable, clean and well stocked with anything we needed to make a meal and snacks. The bedrooms were so nice and the baths were clean with towels luxurious and linens for bedrooms were so nice. We really enjoyed the fireplace (no wood needed) and plenty of seating in den and eating area. It was a little drive into Franklin and Nashville, but not too far. We are already talking about going again next year and would certainly consider staying here again. Our only regret was that the weather turned cold and rainy and we didn't get a chance to utilize the nice back porch and listen to the waterfall.

Wonderful house and location!

  • 5 of 5
Me and three of my buddies take a motorcycle trip each year to a different location, this year picking Tennessee. This historical house is beautiful, kept historic but with modern amenities. Each evening, after our ride, we would sit on the back porch and watch the waterfall and have a cigar. I would love to rent this location again someday. Very enjoyable!

Cousins Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This place is wonderful. We had a girls cousins retreat there for the weekend. We did some site seeing in Nashville and Franklin. We all enjoyed that but agreed the most fun was at the cottage playing games and bonding with memories. Waterfall was so relaxing to sit by and drink coffee in the morning. It was exactly like the photos and then some.

Owner's Response: That is great to hear you girls had such a good time. That is what the cottage is all about......relaxing, having fun, and enjoying all the amenities of the cottage and nature surrounding the cottage.
Look forward to having you all as returning guests.

Fantastic!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I was so happy when we got to the cottage and it looked exactly like the pictures. I loved how secluded it felt.

The layout of the house was so perfect for us...so big and roomy. My girls loved having a floor to themselves. The beds were absolutely fantastic, we never wanted to get up in the morning.

We had planned to take many day trips, but since we enjoyed the house so much, we stayed home a bit more.

We were so sad to leave. Cannot wait until we can visit again!

I would recommend this house to any of my family and friends in a heartbeat.

Loved the house!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at your home over the weekend of my son's wedding. We loved it! Everything was as beautiful as shown in your photos. We hosted the rehearsal dinner for forty people at the home, and all the guests were thrilled. We set up croquet on the lawn, and everyone spread out throughout the property for a delightful evening. My son's wedding was held at the Loveless Barn, and the house was conveniently located to it. We served food at the rehearsal dinner from Dos Margaritas in Fairview. We could not have been happier with all the arrangements and the accommodations!
