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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Girlfriend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our cabin so much and Laura the owner was so accommodating. We literally booked our hotel New Year's Eve and came up New Year's day and she worked fast to get the cabin ready since there were people checking out the day we came in. The cabin was super dooper clean. Hot tub was was great she even brought the fire pit up to our cabin so we could have an outside fire and do smores. Cabin is so cute and she has lots of written hikes listed. You can hear the river from your cabin. So peaceful and tranquil. Definitely wanna go back! Also pet friendly and didn't smell like pets.

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!"
