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 Pensacola
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).

WOW! So glad we made a great first impression AND that you posted a review to share!! Looking forward to hearing from you again :-) Laura
Morning Glory cabin was perfect in every way!!
This location was perfect for our family get away! The cabin had just enough seclusion while still being close to cute Burnsville with great restaurants and adorable stores. The hot tub was perfect with a fabulous view of the river. Will definitely visit again!
Thank you for taking the time to post a review! So glad you all enjoyed your stay. We also love the fact that you feel like you're WAY out of town, but you're not...Burnsville is a special place and the attraction is growing with more (non-chain) restaurants opening in the near future! Hope you'll visit again :-) Laura
