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

“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!

Relaxing weekend mountain getaway

Fantastic cozy cottage with lovely views. Clean, equipped, comfortable. Laura was helpful and welcoming. Location is close to town, yet feels secluded. Terrific choice to unwind for the weekend!

Beautiful setting and convenient to many outdoor activities

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was clean and well equipped. it was perfect for a family of four. Enjoyed the fireplace and hot tub on the cold nights. Exceptional places to eat in Burnsville - The Garden Deli and Snap Dragon.

Loved it, and eager to return!

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with Morning Glory the moment we first saw it, and through the entire week we were there our affection for this special place only deepened. The cabin itself is clean, charming and comfortable, and it was plenty spacious for the four of us in our group. All the amenities were as promised. The view from our perch at the side of a mountain was both serene and invigorating, and the sound of the creek below enhanced everything. The location of the cabin is perfect as a home base from which to travel to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Mount Mitchell, Grandfather Mountain, Asheville, and beyond. No matter where we went during the day, we were always happy to return to the cabin for a relaxing evening with the hot tub and then sitting in front of fireplace. Some of the best parts of our week didn't even require leaving Riverwalk. Hiking some of the trails and walking along the river were some of the best parts of our week. On previous trips to the mountains we have stayed in hotels, but this time we wanted to try a cabin. We found Morning Glory online, and we know now that we lucked out in every way. We've already found ourselves missing the place immensely, and we eagerly look forward to returning to our newfound "home away from home."

Quality family time in a beautiful setting. The cabin is comfortable and so well furnished it feels like home. The grounds are lovely and make you want to experience it in all seasons. Highly recommend you contact Laura to include Riverwalk to your bucket list.
