About Laura Watrous

I'm Laura Watrous. My husband and partner, Brett Watrous, are the owners of the two luxury vacation cabins that make up Riverwalk Vacation Rentals. We love our life in the mountains and find great joy sharing our special piece of the world with guests. Our cabins were originally designed with the kind of comfort and luxury we strive for when we vacation.

Laura Watrous purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Laura Watrous chose Burnsville

The saying goes: 'I wasn't born in Burnsville but I got here as quickly as I could' The climate is perfect with four different seasons: Beautiful cool Summers, colorful Falls, relatively mild Winters, and fresh colorful Springs. Morning Glory is in a perfect location to make the most of why a Blue Ridge Mountain vacation is great any time of the year.

What makes this cabin unique

Morning Glory cabin is private yet convenient to features not available anywhere else. This cabin sits just above the Cane River with a wide open view of the river. The sound of the river actually echos in the porch rafters. Guests of Riverwalk also have access to two privately owned riverside parks which cater to our guests. One with pool & playground, the other with picnic pavilion, river tubes, large fire pit and youth zip line. There are 200+ acres of hiking and exploring right on the Riverwalk property. Neighboring farm with people friendly horses, donkeys and a goat. Farm owner offers horse 'time' for a small fee. Riverwalk is close to Blue Ridge Parkway, Mount Mitchell and The Pisgah National Forest (pedestrian, bike, equestrian trails).

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Riverwalk: 5 stars *****” “We have been renting cabins for 10 years and this is the best. God willing, we will be back to enjoy the Ewing’s wonderful hospitality and cabins. (Texas)

What an Escape!

We had such a superb time staying at RiverWalk in May, 2006. The amenities were impeccable, the hosts gracious and the scenery breathtaking. We highly recommend this getaway and will hopefully return soon!

Lives up to the other reviews!! Perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect for our weekend away, where all we wanted to do was get away and relax. The cabin is very roomy and comfortable, the hot tub is huge, and the views are incredible. Laura was awesome, answering all our questions. The zip line was a huge hit with our 5 year old. He also caught his first fish ever in the river. We're hoping to return in the summer so we can go tubing in the river.

Morning Glory at Riverwalk

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a fantastic week at Morning Glory. The Cabin was excellent in every way. The owner Laura, gave us just the right amount of attention. Riverwalk is a great place to relax and unwind. The location is remote enough to be very quiet, but close enough to Burnsville to be convenient. We made our way into Ashville several times for the fantastic restaurants, breweries and the like. If you've never travelled the Blueridge Parkway, just do it! Too bad more highways aren't built this way!

Hiking in the area is easily accessible and is some of the best east of the Mississippi. Mount Mitchell St. Park is about an hour away, but the views from the highest point east of the Mississippi are fantastic. Take the Mt. Mitchell trail 3 or 4 miles one way for a great workout with some amazing views. "I'll be baaaaaack!"

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Morning Glory Cabin. It was peaceful, clean, with every convenience. The view and sound of the river from the front porch was delightful. The owner, Laura, went out of her way to check on us and to make sure that everything we needed was available.

We will certainly be back, and look forward to Morning Glory when we do.

No Kids No Pets No Problems

  • 5 of 5
Let me state right out front, The 1st thing I would change at this cabin would be NOTHING. Excellent private location over looking the river, nice house in side and out, house provided plenty of room for us (2 couples in our 50's) everything was as expected, the front door was open and the lights were on when we got there. Heavy rain, no problem as the deck cover took care of that for us, we just sat on the deck and enjoyed the rain. Laura was a great host, very nice set-up within the property (take you time to enjoy what's with-in the property. We'll be back and most likely will bring our pets, as we had fun just hanging out with-in the overall property. Rode Downtown Burnsville (pretty neat) & took in the Biltmore (about a 40 minute drive). For meals, take a ride back into Burnsville to Ingles, nice clean store with everything you may need. "Thanks" Laura for such a special outstanding treat, hope to see you soon back in your neck of the woods!!

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful and relaxing place to stay, and far more than we expected. The cabin is beautiful inside and out. We loved the hot tub. The Cane River is right below the cabin and lulled us to sleep each night. Our best vacation in 20 years. The location is perfect with Burnsville only minutes away and Asheville less than 30 minutes away. Laura made us feel like we were part of the family. Our only regret is that we only stayed a week.
