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 High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

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 manager

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!

Fantastic location, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Visited with my wife, daughter (11) and son (7) over the Fourth of July weekend. Cabin is perfect - clean, big enough for the 4 of us, but cozy. River was too low for tubing, but because the water level was down the creek was gorgeous and we made a creek walk part of our daily routine. Also enjoyed the pool at Sunset Gatherings, a few hikes on the property, and lots of sitting around playing board games and doing jigsaw puzzles together. Great couple of days for my family, and the TV didn't go on a single time. Laura had everything we needed and was great. Would definitely return.

Perfect Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Morning Glory cabin. The kids had a great time in the hot tub, floating down the river front and getting to spend time in the barn with the horses. The cabin was perfect. We will be returning.

Fabulous for young family

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time. The property is perfect for a family with young kids. Plenty of nearby hikes of a mile or less (with waterfalls), no need to leave the property for outdoor fun. We saw tadpoles and baby fish in the cane river as we tubed right on the property. Our seven year old wore himself out on the zip line while our two year old played on the huge lawn. The cabin isn't fussy. No moving stupid knickknacks out of kids' way. It's amazingly clean and comfy with a firefly show every night.

The best cabin for you to spend with your pets

  • 5 of 5

I and my wife stayed at Riverwalk cabin with my Australian shepherd. The cabin was very clean and snug. Everything is had in a kitchen, and you can cook it perfectly.The playground for a guest was most suitable for to play and an exercise of my dog. It's wide there and is covered up by a clean lawn. A beautiful river was flowing through the side right now, so my dog could also enjoy paddling on everyday of staying. Cane River who flows immediately under the cabin was good-looking, and I enjoyed fly fishing of a rainbow and Brook Trout fully.

Though we mistook a cabin, I'm more thankful to Ms. Luna who corresponds very tolerantly than a heart.

We'd come back again. Thanks!! Yoshiaki
