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.

Amazing long weekend

  • 5 of 5

I am so excited to write this review. I booked this trip to Asheville back in July for our group of friends to just getaway and just have fun little did I know my decision to stay at Loafers Glory was truly some divine intervention on soooo many levels. First the owners Ronnie and Susie Waldrop have the most stunning home, the views are amazing, the house is well appointed yet warm,cozy, and inviting evoking the true meaning of what "home" is. Second our group was from Myrtle Beach sc, had to evacuate due to Hurricane Matthew Susie could not have been more accommodating or caring she allowed us to check in a day early without hesitation and made sure to check on us and to wish us safe and blessed travel. I could go on and on but running out of space and this home is one you must experience for your self. We had the best time ever and didn't want for a thing or to go home. Book Loafers Glory you will not be disappointed May the Lord bless you Ronnie,Susie and your family always. Thank you Thankyou Thankyou!

Love The Myrtle Beach refugees!

Beautiful cabin with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very nice with plenty of room for large groups, while still allowing for some privacy. It's well appointed, clean and has great amenities. The views from the deck are incredible and the location can't be beat. A quick trip down the mountain puts you right on the highway into Brevard or a reasonable drive over to Asheville. The Pisgah Forest with it's great hiking and biking is right around the corner, as well. I hope to visit again soon!

Beautiful Views! Very handy to Pisgah National Forest

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home with exceptional views of the mountains. The large porch overlooking the view is fantastic. The owners are very nice and provided welcome snacks that my children greatly appreciated. It was a very pleasant surprise after a long drive.

We were impressed with the beauty and the personality of the home and the area. The owner was so sweet and all of our kids were happy. We couldn't imagine a better house or location.

Fantastic retreat! Away from it all, yet so close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our four children and me have just arrived from Susi and Ronnie Waldrop's home and we are already missing it. Absolutely astonishing views, amazing terrace to enjoy long breakfasts and smores at nightime. Away from everything, super quiet, but still great access to stores and both Pisgah and Dupont National parks. We enjoyed morning walks down and up hill. Enjoyed absolutely beautifull sunsets while preparing dinner in the barbacue. Plenty of room in the house and terrace to enjoy some alone time. Also it"s wonderfully equipped, we could really enjoy cooking in their amazing kitchen. The property is in perfect state of maintanance and both Susi and Ronni are great hosts,mtaking carenof every detail, very dedicated to make our stay unforgettable, keeping us posted of great deals nearby via text messge or email to avoid any kind of intrusion. Our kids really enjoyed staying at the house, they were so happy there, that it was hard to get them out for activities, and I must say that our kids are really sporty kids. They loved sliding Rock in Pisgah park and the mirror waterfall. they also loved the high falls at Dupont National park and swimming in the river. We really enjoyed hiking in both parks and Chimeny Rock. I can go on with The list of things to do forever, and everything is unique, fun and beautiful. We would love to go back in fall to experience a different and colorful view. we Totally recommend Loafers Glory Too!
