Leipers Fork is one of those places where you feel instantly at home and don't want to leave.

We encourage you to explore and experience the charm, character and community pride of what is known as Leipers Fork.

Our son Wyatt looks forward to making s'mores over the crackling fire in the outdoor fire pit and playing countless games of Uno. My husband, Michael can't wait for the amazing lightning bugs that appear to be dancing all around and I look forward to waking up with a cup of tea on the back enclosed porch, lazy afternoons in the hammock - dozing off while reading a good book, and can't wait for the private outdoor shower. There is something special about showering outside and listening to the sounds of nature.
The Cottage truly has a character all it's own... a story to be told, memories to be made... a secluded retreat nestled amongst the trees. Visit Storybook Cottage... where every where every nook and cranny provide its own adventure, where nature blends into everyday life… Sit back, relax and enjoy.

We stumbled upon Leipers Fork by pure chance in the spring of 2011. We knew right then and there that we wanted to make this special place a part of our lives. Family is extremely important to us and we get such joy watching our son Wyatt enjoy the people and community as much as we do. We own four vacation rentals in the area want you to enjoy your stay with us. If there is anything that we can do to enhance your experience during your stay, please let us know. - Sarah, Michael, Wyatt and new baby Scotch

Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved everything about this storybook cottage. So much that we went to visit Kim and David at City Farmhouse. We even had to buy two of the flickering lantern candles to take home with us as a reminder of our time spent here.We enjoyed the outdoor fire pit on a cool evening. We also really enjoyed Puckett's!
