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.

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.

a charming, get away retreat!

  • 5 of 5
This house was such a delight, and nicely decorated. We were there to explore the area, but the house was so welcoming it was difficult to get away! It was cold when we were there, so the gas fireplace was greatly appreciated.
The only changes I would suggest to the owner is to put a coat rack behind the door, and please put a reflecting sign at the driveway entrance, as it was difficult to find in the dark. We drove into the wrong dtiveway several times, and then had trouble backing out into the road at night.
we would definitely like to return to this property.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. You certainly did have a cold snap during your visit but sounds like the warmth of the fire, the warmth of the people, and all you experienced made up for the cold.
Please come back for another visit...Leiper's Fork is great all 4 seasons.
Thanks for the suggestions on the drive and the coat rack.
Hurry back,

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for being our guests at the Stone Cottage. Love that you enjoyed the amenities of the cottage. The entire cottage was renovated in Feb and everything in it has been updated and appointed with only the best. Nothing like having a comfortable bed to sleep in while staying on your special get-away trip.
Please hurry back so we can fluff those pillows for you once again for your stay at Dino's Stone Cottage.
Happy Holidays!
