About Sandy Dorris

Living in this area for years now has been such a wonderful experience for me. I am so happy to now have LOAFER'S GLORY to share with others so they too can enjoy stepping back in time in the quaint little Village of Leiper's Fork. Down home feel, live music in the village, quaint shops , art galleries, good eating, friendly people, close to downtown square of Franklin, peaceful and quiet times sitting on front porch sipping your morning coffee, or sight seeing to Natchez Trace, downtown Nashville....wineries close by.. trail riding, you name it.

I am looking forward to sharing my little piece of heaven with others so they too may experience what rural Leiper's Fork has to offer.

Being retired now gives me more opportunity to share my cottage and village with you....LOAFER'S GLORY is waiting to give you the royal pamper experience. I am all about sharing the "glory!"

Sandy Dorris purchased this house in 2013

Why Sandy Dorris chose Franklin

This property has everything to offer you, my guests, the best of everything. It is located in the quaint little village of Leiper's Fork which is know "world wide" as the place to visit. People come here from far and near just to experience the down home feeling of staying in a rural town yet so close to so many things to do. Everyone who visits always tell me they wanted to stay longer, they want to come back for a return stay, and yes "they want to move here." It happens over and over and I do get many return guests. So my little stone cottage, LOAFER'S GLORY, lets me share everything about this area with all who choose to stay here. My cottage has been designed and appointed with YOU in mind. Great thought has gone in to making it warm, comfortable, and inviting. It sits nestled back on the property making it very quiet and peaceful, allows you to sit on front or side porch and no one sees you enjoying your relaxing time, and is 2 minutes from all that goes on in the village ie: live music, quaint shopping, a variety of places to eat, trails to ride or hike, wineries, art galleries, sightings of many famous artists who have chosen this community to live in just because they can appreciate it's beauty and the people here who allow them their personal privacy . LOAFER'S GLORY is situated right where it needs to be for the perfect get away for my current and future guests. Wanna drive to the square of downtown Nashville then you can be there in 8 minutes, wanna drive to downtown Nashville then you can be there in 25 minutes,,,,,but guarantee you will always want to return to Loafer's Glory Cottage to just chill and relax...until time to get up and go again or just sit a spell. i look forward to sharing my gem of a cottage with you soon.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic views, cool shade from the many trees, garage parking for guest cars. Private setting nestled back from the road. Close to all that goes on in the village of Leiper's Fork.

Totally renovated and updated with everything one could wish for in their VRBO get away. It was truly designed with my guests in mind.... Come and see for yourself and you will find it is exactly as you see in the pictures.

The cottage is charming and comfortable. It is spotless and decorated beautifully. Leipers Fork is such a charming area and this cottage is in the perfect location to access all of the unique shops and eateries. We loved our stay and we will be back...

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we entered Loafer's Glory to the moment we departed, we felt enchanted by its comforts and beauty. The home is older, but did not smell old as many do. The kitchen had everything we needed. We slept great! We enjoyed the rainfall shower.

If you arrive after sunset, be very careful because it's dark and super easy to miss the driveway and into a ditch. My mom and her husband experienced this first hand.

We spent some time in "downtown" Leiper's Fork and it was a special treat due to the uniqueness of the items in some of the shops and the interesting art studios.

We would most definitely stay at Loafer's Glory again, if we're ever in the area.

We loved Leipers Fork and we loved this home. It was exactly as advertised. It's on highway but the traffic didn't bother us. The house is really very quiet and fairly secluded. We loved the way the house is decorated and felt right at home. One warning ... there is no bath tub. In the only bathroom there is only a shower but it is the coolest shower I've ever seen. It has 2 shower heads plus a hand shower wand. The shower itself is huge. I really enjoyed it and wish I had one at home. The lack of a tub didn't bother us at all but if you have to have a tub, there is none. This house is very convenient to Liepers Fork and Franklin. I wish it was closer to home for us because we'd love to stay there again.

The property had such character

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about staying at the stone cottage! It's breath taking morning views down to every little quaint detail on the inside! Me and my husband stayed there three nights and would love to do so again!!!! Not far from town made it easy to go out. It was just perfect! Thank you Sandy for your hospitality! We are hoping to visit again in Christmas to watch the parade!!

Owner's Response: You are so welcome!. So glad you enjoyed your stay...loved that you got to see the beautiful morning view. Sitting on the front porch "watching the world go by" is one of my favorite things to do while sipping a cup of coffee. I do hope you will try to come back to stay again in December. The Village of Leipers Fork is truly magical during the Thanksgiving and Christmas Season. Come join in the fun, laughter, and merriment of this special time of the year. You said you thought the property had such character......I totally agree. I love being able to stay there myself occasionally just to enjoy down time and relax. Anxious to have you as a returning guest soon. Sandy

Fall break daughter weekend

  • 5 of 5

This lovely farmhouse decor cottage is a quaint place that is nestled in historic Leipers Fork with lots of beautiful horse farms, scenery and a neat little town that has several antique shops and the famous Puckett’s grocery and cafe which serves amazing bbq for lunch and dinner and good ole home cooked breakfast plus live country music on their stage on the weekends,

The cottage was recently renovated and looks just like the pictures and has everything you need. My daughter and I both said we would love to live here! It’s very close to Franklin and the upscale Green Hills mall and a 45 minute drive to downtown Nashville. The owner Sandy was very prompt in getting back to me if I had any questions and I plan to come back in the future for another stay. If your looking for cozy and some peace and quite this is the PLACE!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review of Loafer's Glory. I am so happy you and your daughter enjoyed your stay. You are so right about the village being so quaint and so many things to enjoy. If one is looking for a quiet rural get- away yet so close to everything then this cottage is perfect. Treat yourself to a big southern welcome from the folks in Leiper's Fork, visit downtown Franklin only 8 miles away or venture on in to Nashville for some fun. You said you wanted to return for another visit so I will be looking for you and anxious to have you as a returning guest in the near future. The cottage is very popular and books pretty far in advance so check your calendar and make your reservations a few month in advance to get the dates you desire. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts for future guests to read. Sandy
