Why Sandy Dorris chose Tennessee

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. So many things to do just a few of miles away! Come stay with us! The greatest way to experience beautiful Tennessee.

Beautiful and cozy!

Great place to be cozy and have a quiet family vacation. Close to franklin and Nashville, and the creek is wonderful for the kids to play. Dusk brings tons of fireflies!

A magical experience for me and my whole family. A truly special place on a beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

This vacation property was perfect for my family and I. The setting was serene. Quite a special place. Knowing the history of the house made our experience rich and unique. The layout and design of the house was ideal. Many family members said they wanted to move in. We can't wait to come back again next year!

Perfect for our families trip.

  • 4 of 5

It was a beautiful and spacious home. It easily accommodated our party of 10, celebrating the 50th wedding anniversary of my in-laws. The back porch was nice where we could sit and visit while watching/listening to the creek. I wish we could've stayed longer.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Every thing from the decor to the kitchen appliances through the fittings in the bathrooms are top of the line

Our favorite part of this house was supplied by Mother Nature

The water fall out back is the highlight of this property

Sandy provides every thing you need for a comfortable stay and was quick to respond to any questions or problems

We definitely will return
