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!

Best one!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is beautifully decorated and very private.

Great view of the river and property from a comfortable seat on the porch. The cabin was everything we had hoped for and more. This was our fifth time staying in a VRBO and I must say this was the best yet. The jacuzzi was a huge bonus and we thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing time spent there. We enjoyed walking the lower part of the property down by the river. Sorry we didnt have time to see the rest of the property. only had 2 nights here. its obvious that Laura and family have put a lot of TLC into this cabin. Thanks so much for sharing such a wonderful place with us. Hope to return for a longer stay in the near future. Ron&Jacki, Lexington, sc

Morning Glory was the perfect cabin for a getaway for a couple

  • 4 of 5

I had no problems with the cabin, but due to the location, not as perfect for a family of four. Maybe if it had been right on the water, we would had more convenience to do things around outside. Pretty far out from any activities or meals. It would have been ideal if there had been a spa tub in one of the bathrooms. The shower upstairs was so small if you turned around, you would bump the water handle and get a really cold or hot shower. I would absolutely recommend to a couple that wanted to get away and not want get out much, except for hiking around the property. Thank you, very nice stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so sorry you found the cabin and its location to be less than you'd expected. That is truly unfortunate. For readers, I would like to point out that while you cannot touch your toes in water just outside the cabin's front door, the river is right there. There is a path right next to the cabin to walk down to the rivers edge as well as two riverfront park areas on the property to enjoy the river to its fullest. As for the spa tub wish, with a hot tub just outside the front door, a spa tub hardly seems necessary.
