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.

**** JANURARY:At this time the hot tub on the porch is not working and will most likely be removed in the Spring of 2015.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Nine people spent the week in this wonderful place. The home was comfortable and very roomy. Yet it had a cozy feel about it. The decor made it feel very homey. A lot of time was spent on the back porch with the waterfall and creek a focal point. This was a fabulous place and would highly recommend it to anyone who wanted an out of way spot, yet not far from Nashville and other sightseeing spots.

Perfect place for our Nashville stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 and loved every bit of being at the Creekside Cottage! It is so nice with beautiful furnishings but at the same time so comfortable and cozy! The creek is amazing and offered hours of fun for our 11 year old son! Communication was clear and everything was organized and very clean! Hardest part was leaving cause we wanted to stay longer!!

Would love to have you again. All season are beautiful at the cottage. Sandy

Beautiful setting yet convenient to Nashville

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Fairview. This old cottage was once a church . You feel like you have stepped back in time with modern amenities. Franklin ,Leiper's Fork and Nashville are all convenient. We made the trips daily and looked forward to returning to the country and the sounds of crickets and creek water flowing. Their is a great local coffee shop nearby called 1st District. So awesome! Definitely recommend and Sandy was so helpful .

Charming, serene setting, clean wth everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

This charming home was perfect! We loved the rustic country feeling and the stream in the backyard. The beds were very comfortable and amenities outstanding like the huge refrigerator, laundry room w/ washer and dryer with iron and ironing board, large dining table to sit around, big flat screen tv, master shower with steam and multi jets for water to spray you from both sides. Comfortable, cozy and fun rustic country decorating!
