LOAFER'S GLORY...My renovated stone cottage sits in the historic Village of Leiper's Fork. It is located 8 miles from Historic Franklin Main Street and 35 minutes from downtown Nashville. Its situated on a knoll with large oak trees and breath taking views! It features hardwood floors, exposed beams, quaint and charming furnishings, a king size master bedroom and secondary queen bedroom. Home has large bathroom featuring carrera marble and travertine tile with seamless glass doors! Come, relax on my front porch and watch the days go by!
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
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 minitues 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.
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.
I hate to give this place a good review (for selfish reasons as I want it always to be available when I'm ready to go back).
It was probably the most relaxing vacation I've ever taken. Didn't turn the tv on one time.
The kitchen was amazing, the bathroom was jaw dropping.
The beds were comfortable and the internet was great.
The entire space had such amazing atmosphere that we were there from a Tuesday to a Friday and we left for maybe 6 hours tops the whole time, went hiking a few miles a way at the Garrison Creek Trail, went to breakfast each morning and out to dinner one time - otherwise we hung out at the cottage and read and relaxed. So...if you don't like nice relaxing, clean and gorgeous places - you may want to find another place to stay :) ....however, if you do - stay here!!!! Just don't let the cat out of the bag about how nice it is.
This is a lovingly renovated old stone cottage in a perfect location just down the road from the restaurants and shops of Leiper's Fork, with quick and easy access to Franklin and the Natchez Trace Parkway. Nashville is 30 minutes away. The decor is elegantly rustic with modern, updated, and well-stocked kitchen and bathroom. There is no tub, but the shower is large with a seating ledge and multiple shower heads with excellent water pressure. The view and light out the front window is so nice. We even got a rainbow just across the street one afternoon! Recommendations include immersing yourself in all the civil war history and home tours in the area. Load up on books at Parnassus and Landmark. See a show at Franklin Theatre and City Winery. Visit Loretta Lynn's Ranch in Hurricane Mills. Eat at all the Puckett's, Country Boy, Merridee's, 55 South, Loveless, Hattie B's Hot Chicken, and Rotier's. Don't miss Nett's Country Store in Bethel or Breece's Cafe in Centerville. Save room for pie! Thanks again, Sandy, for a wonderful stay at such a reasonable price.
What a beautiful cottage!!! We absolutely loved our stay and look forward to returning in the near future. It was picture perfect! Far enough from the city, yet close enough to everything.
Thank you, Sandy. It was just what we wanted!

We had a relaxing three day stay at the cottage. It is quiet and cozy and an advantageous location. A minute from downtown Leiper's Fork made it easy to get to know the little village. Not far from downtown Franklin either. We are already excited to come back one day and stay again!
We enjoyed our stay so much at your beautiful home, that it was a challenge to make ourselves get out and enjoy Leipers Fork. It was clean and very welcoming, with so many special touches. It too, was cozy and decorated in a way that I specially love. You can tell that there was much attention given to details and to make whomever stayed there comfortable, as we were. We would very much like to visit Dino's cottage again. It was a real treat to meet you Sandy, and to have a nice chat with you before we even realized who you were...lol. Thank you so much for making our stay a very memorable one. It was a wonderful stay in a wonderful town!
