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 Tennessee

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.

Wonderful relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is amazing! It is beautifully decorated with super modern touches like a fully decked out kitchen and an amazing rain shower in the bathroom. It was peaceful and relaxing to stay there. Everything was super clean and lovely. Bed was super comfortable. Customer service was just outstanding. Sandy could not have been any friendlier, more polite, or helpful. Great experience!

Beautiful Cottage in Nature

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage lived up to the pictures. Everything inside was of the highest quality and the owner had thought of everything to make our stay perfect. Perfect setting too, if you are looking to get away from the city sights and enjoy nature sounds. Would definitely stay again.

The perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of every day life!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful cottage for 4 days and enjoyed every minute. The attention to detail throughout the cottage was amazing and felt as though we were staying in a home that surely had been featured on Fixer Upper. The cottage was very clean and comfortable; the only thing I would recommend is the addition of a full length mirror. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch each morning with a beautiful view! The cottage is only about 10 minutes from Franklin and 30 minutes from Nashville which made the cottage a very convenient location. Thanks for sharing your beautiful cottage, Sandy! We can't wait to come back!

Most beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it. We came out to see Nashville and decided to stay a little out of the city and I'm glad we did. Every morning we sat out front drinking coffee and enjoying the country. Its so peaceful, no one to bother you. This cottage is absolutely breath taking and very well taken care of. I hope that everyone that stays here takes great care of it as well. I have not one complaint about it. If we ever decide to come back this will definitely be the place to stay at! Thank you Sandy for this amazing stay! :)

Beautiful piece of Tennessee countryside!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! When we walked into Loafer's Glory it was just a little piece of heaven nestled on a beautiful lot. For any of you Fixer Upper fans, it was as though Joanna Gaines personally came and worked her magic on the interior space. So clean and quaint, we didn't want to leave. Every possible thing imaginable that we needed was provided without having to ask. This is such a gem! If we're ever back in the Leiper's Fork area, we hope to rent this cottage again.

Spoiled rotten!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. The details were wonderful down to the smallest thing. It's incredibly charming and located in a beautiful location. We spent time on the Natchez Trace which is right down the road and it was an easy drive into Nashville and the surrounding areas. I am looking forward to going back some day.

Notes:
If you have a need for a personal drive to take you to downtown Nashville, Franklin, or to airport call James Moore. 615-479-2183 . You can discuss with him you needs and make reservations to use his service. They are not paid by the cottage. He charges by the hour with a 3 hour minimum....$50 per hour + tip. Many of my guests use him as the DUI penalty is very strict and enforced in Tennessee.
