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.

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.

You mentioned you took some design and decorating ideas home with you so anxious to hear how that worked for you in your home. You were such a joy to have at the cottage and the fact you are a Tennessean at heart means you will be returning soon. Please do not hesitate to contact me and book another relaxing visit with us. The quaint little village of Leiper's Fork is a rare thing to find indeed.

Cozy cabin in the Fork!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this stone house for a few days while working on a project that was right around the corner for convenience. Even though it was only 12 miles from my own home it felt like a getaway. It is decorated very well, everything you need is provided and after a long day at work the waterfall shower followed by the fire was the highlight for me. Would definitely recommend this gem for visitors that want to experience the beauty of the Natchez trace and the village we love so much!

Whether your stay is for business or pleasure we want you to make it your home away from home. Please do recommend us to others so they too can enjoy our cottage. Thanks again and please do come stay with us again....we'd love to have you. Sandy Dorris Managr

Perfect Country Charm, Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have always talked about going to Nashville. With no plans for New Year's Eve, we decided to jump in the car and head down from Chicago after I found this adorable Stone Cottage that was available on VRBO. Within minutes of arriving in Leiper's Fork, we were already talking about how we should move there. The cottage is just a minute from all of the antique shops, restaurants and of course Puckett's Grocery. We had the trip of a lifetime. The cottage itself is very Pottery Barn meets Route 66. Everything was brand new and very well designed...from the fireplace to the gorgeous rain-head shower to the refurbished antique furniture. Loved the country music, great people, charming rural views and the community. We are so glad we didn't stay in downtown Nashville with the expensive hotels and crowds. We were able to take a drive in to the city one night. It is only a 30 minute drive. We also drove into Franklin for lunch, shopping and some amazing Civil War history. We found ourselves just wanting to get back to Puckett's for Open Mic Night and good company! A must do! Can't wait to get back!

Owner's Response: WOW! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts about the cottage. You couldn't have said it better. I am so glad you all decided to come on down for New Year's. Leiper's Fork is truly a place everyone wants to visit or even move to after they have been here. You know what.....many do move here as there is nothing quite like it. Glad you tried all the places to eat and enjoy while experiencing the great little village, some of downtown Nashville and Franklin, and then wanting to hurry back to Leiper's Fork to "just be"....PLEASE do come for a return visit.
