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!

Excellent Stay! Will be Back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at Morning Glory cabin, and it was simply outstanding. It's clean, well-stocked with everything needed, cozy and comfortable. My sister and I treat each other to a stay in the mountains every year, and last year, we discovered this cabin. We came back this year, and we will return next year...for an even longer stay. Thank you, Laura, for our great vacation in your lovely cabin.

Beautiful, peaceful, clean mountain get-away

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is an excellent value with the amenities it provides. It is just beautiful. It was very comfortable and clean. Laura was so helpful. I was having trouble with my phone and she was so kind to take time to text the directions and get us to the cabin. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to come again.

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!
