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

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.

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).

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!

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Morning Glory Cabin. We also brought along our dog.
The overlook of Cane Creek was beautiful. We fished right off the rocks and had great success with the amount of fish we caught. Our Golden Retriever also loved swimming in the creek. The cabin was very clean and well maintained. The property manager called during our stay to check on us and to make sure that we had everything we needed. The grounds of River Walk are beautiful. I would definitely recommend to a friend, as this was a very relaxing stay.

LOVELY, RELAXING AND COZY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with our family of 3 and dog. The cabin was very clean, comfortable and cozy. It was just ideal. The owners were more than hospitable. The called to check up on us to make sure we had all we needed such as firewood and starters. We visited with the horses which was lots of fun to pet and feed them. My husband was able to fish in the river, which was just a short trip by foot downhill. We would love to return, especially in the fall. It was just beautiful with the leaves changing and the cozy fireplace!

BEAUTIFUL HOME AND SURROUNDINGS WITH OUTDOOR FUN FOR ALL AGES

  • 5 of 5
I only wish we could have stayed longer. I'm an avid hiker and love the outdoors but my kids are less enthused about me dragging them around by car to my well researched trails while begging them to look at the view. At riverside, I simply hid the TV remote and opened the door saying "go explore" My 12 year and 8 year old had no problem navigating and exploring the huge, safe grounds for hours of fun. We live in the DC suburbs so this was a new idea for all of us. There is also a lot of territory for adults to cover as well without any need to get in a car.

Laura, the owner, was incredibly helpful and accessible before and during the trip. It is obvious that she wants her renters to enjoy the grounds as much as she does.

I recommend making a list and allowing time to grocery shop at ingles grocery store in Burnsville on your way because once you are at the cabin you may not feel like leaving. Lovely trip that the kids and I never forget.

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We spent three nights in Morning Glory which was wonderfully secluded with a lovely view of the river. It was within walking distance (though we drove) to the river/volley ball/firepit/mini zipline area. To my surprise my 2 kids enjoyed fishing the river more than anything. The cabin is well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. My tip would be to bring Tupperware/foil/baggies for saving leftovers! We were able to cook all of our meals there after a trip to Ingles. Props to the owners who include an Ingles discount card on your cabin key chain! Loved having the washer/dryer and very much appreciated all the amenities including dish soap, fire starters, fluffy towels and high quality bedding. It was chillier than expected so we were not able to tube in the river or swim in the pool, but we drove to Linville Caverns about 45 minutes away and it was much fun. The hot tub on the porch was very nice and the fact Morning Glory is pet friendly made it a perfect choice for our family.
