About Ronnie & Susie Waldrop

Ronnie & Susie Waldrop grew up in the lovely mountains of Pisgah Forest. Our lifelong dream was to build a log home high atop Mine Mountain so our entire family could enjoy God's beautiful creation in the lovely quiet setting overlooking the scenic Pisgah National Forest. We hope you enjoy Loafer's Glory as much as we do!

Ronnie & Susie Waldrop purchased this chateau / country house in 2008

Why Ronnie & Susie Waldrop chose North Carolina

Our property was handed down from our Great Grandfather who loved these mountains as much as we do. His goal was the same as ours, to provide his family with a quiet, serene setting to enjoy God's beautiful nature. Our property is secluded, quiet and peaceful, yet located on a paved road that leads within 10 minutes to the Pisgah Gem Mine, Walmart, shopping, historic Brevard, Pisgah National Forest with Looking Glass Falls , Sliding Rock, Cradle of Forestry, biking, horseback riding, camping, and restaurants all within a short 10 minute drive down the mountain. The famous Biltmore House is in nearby Asheville and the Asheville Airport is only 15 miles away. Our home is nestled in the peaceful mountains, yet restaurants and sights are close by.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

An outdoor fireplace, porch swing, and seating area are located on the rear deck where you can view the most glorious sunsets from the western sky! These views can be enjoyed from the Family Room with 3 story windows, dining room with 3 full length glass doors, and from every bedroom in the home. French doors lead from the Master Bedroom, Great Room and Dining Room to the rear deck. Our home is located on a paved road and has a concrete driveway with a 2 car garage plus an upper parking area for extra guests. We offer Loafers' Glory as a Family only rental property.

Like staying with friends

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay in this beautiful contemporary log home was more like staying with friends than like staying in a rental. The Waldrops are gracious people who open them home for guests. They are very responsive and caring. The view is world class with not a building in sight yet all the activity is a short drive down the mountain - trout streams, waterfalls, fantastic hiking trails, great restaurants and shops. It is most conducive for family fun. We felt right at home. The grandchildren enjoyed playing on the mountain and rocking by the fireplace and watching the sunsets.

Lovely mountain retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Loafer's Glory was the perfect spot for my husband's weekend reunion with his siblings. We came from Ohio, New Jersey, Georgia and North Carolina for the opening weekend of the Biltmore's Christmas season. Susie was so helpful -- she recommended a terrific supermarket that was right on the way from the airport. The kitchen/dining area was perfect and we were able to prepare a lovely meal that was ready when the rest of the weary travelers arrived. It's a bit of a long haul up the mountain, but totally worth it when you get there!

Unbelievable views, great house, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with unbelievable mountain views from every room, just as the owners described. The huge back deck overlooking the mountains was a great place to watch the sun set. The large den on the main level has huge windows framing the mountain views as well. Great kitchen made for easy cooking. Easy access to Brevard, with great restaurants and fishing. Owners were extremely gracious and helpful. All in all, an excellent stay, and I would highly recommend this home.

Absolutely gorgeous spot in the Mountains of North Carolina

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a 3-night rendezvous at "Loafers Glory Too". It was a very spacious and comfortable home for our 10 members. The fireplaces were fantastic for warming on cold nights and roasting marshmallows on the deck. The Waldrop family was super nice to work out every detail that needed any extra attention. All the beds were super comfy and the kitchen was just fabulous with plenty of cookware and accessories. We met 2 neighbors who were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely consider this home a top choice for another mountain excursion.
