About Sandy Dorris

We both work in the airline industry and travel extensively. We moved to Tennessee because this area was one our favorite locales in all of America.

Sandy Dorris purchased this house in 2013

Why Sandy Dorris chose Franklin

Finding a place in Leipers Fork was a thrill for us. Driving up and down Leipers Creek road reminds us every day how beautiful this part of Tennessee is and how well it compares to all the places we've visited around the world.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic views, cool shade from the many trees, garage parking for guest cars.

Owner's Response: So nice to hear you enjoyed your stay. You are so right that the little village of Leiper's Fork has so much to offer with their small shops and live musice venues. We are not far at all from downtown Franklin which a quaint little town to shop around in and visit as well. Eating, antiquing history, and music are all the things that are part of making Franklin, Tn. one of the most visited Southern Cities in all the rankings. The little cottage just offers more of the same with it's unique decor, great location, and that down home feeling. Please do hurry back....next time stay longer. Thanks again. Sandy Dorris

Perfect, relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I was lucky enough to spend the entire month of April in this fabulous little cottage. I breathed a sigh of relief when I first arrived, seeing that everything was just as pictured online...and even better in person. Everything I could have needed was provided here and the cottage was very clean and well-kept. Bed linens, towels, pillows, etc were all top-notch and the decor was stunning. I appreciated the large, beautiful bathroom and the shower was just amazing. The location was terrific and the cottage had just enough privacy. Sandy, the owner, was a delight to deal with and personally stopped by to chat. I honestly couldn't think of a single thing to improve upon here, and I will most definitely be returning.

Owner's Response: Wow, thanks for all the compliments. It was such a pleasure having you as a guest for the month. You truly got to make the cottage your home away from home. My goal is to provide for guests everything to make their stay comfortable and to pamper you during your stay. Our linens and beds are chosen with care and lots attention to detail is given throughout the entire cottage.The pictures on our listing are exactly the way the cottage looks as no one likes surprises for their "get-away time." The Leiper's Fork area is such a quaint little village and has so much to offer. It is truly unique to experience any time in Leiper's Fork and you got the opportunity to spend an entire month. The cottage is located so close the the Historic Downtown area of Franklin which offers music, shopping, antiquing, eateries, history, and simply a down home friendly town. It is ranked in the top 20 best southern town to visit. Can't wait to have you as a returning guests. Many do and sounds like you are one that we will be seeing in the near future. Thanks again and hurry back! Sandy

Cottage and location fed my soul!

  • 5 of 5

The three days/nights I stayed at the Stone Cottage were delightful! As a Tennessean at heart, my soul was renewed by my return to the area, and the cottage was the perfect place for me to stay. The décor is just so comfy, cozy and inviting, and every day I found new features that were charmingly functional and efficient. Great bathroom! Luxurious bedding! And, there's no one more personable, kind and helpful than Sandy, the property manager. Plus, Puckett's is just down the road! I had a wonderful time at the Stone Cottage, will recommend it to my friends and will return when I need to be refreshed and rejuvenated by the Leiper's Fork/Franklin spirit.
