'Trillium' at RIVERWALK...Private, Cozy AND Immaculate! Spend a weekend or a week in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Great location for every season of the year!
Each of our cabins, Trillium & Morning Glory, provide a large, private, 6-person hot tub just outside the door. Sit in one of the front porch rockers to enjoy the view of the Cane River and the horses in the pasture along the rivers border. At night, look up and be amazed by the abundant number of stars in the sky like you've never seen before.
What would a mountain cabin be without the scent and warmth of a wood burning fireplace? Each of our cabins has a wood burning fireplace. We provide free and unlimited wood for our guests so you can enjoy cozy fires all day and all night, if you'd like.
If you demand comfort and ease while away from home, you'll find it here! Each kitchen is equipped as if it were our own for year round use. We also provide a starter supply of coffee, tea, hot cocoa and related supplies (sweetners & creamer) so you can arrive late, if necessary, and without feeling pressure to immediately run out for supplies. Tissue & toilet paper, paper towels, bath soap, dish soap, laundry soap, iron, blow dryer...it's all there. If you need something out of the ordinary, let us know. Chances are we can make it available. Once you check in we want you to sit back and relax.
Comfort, we demand it and so should you! Every guest will rest well in our beds. Our mattresses are all Simmons Beautyrest and guests continue to give our beds the highest marks. Each cabin sleeps up to 6 guests. The master bedroom has a queen bed while the loft bedroom upstairs provides guests the option of either 2 twin beds or a king. Simply specify your preference when booking the reservation. Each of the 2-floors has a full size bathroom. The sleeper sofa in the living area will sleep 2 additional guests. A porta crib is available upon request.
Wireless internet, telephone with unlimited long distance and the best cable package Direct TV has to offer is all included with our cabins.
Get out and see the surrounding area or stay on the property for your entire vacation (which is what many repeat guests enjoy doing). All the property surrounding our cabins is family owned and available for exploration by our guests. The neighboring barn and horse riding arena are owned by Laura's parents, Paul & Judi Ewing (the original Riverwalk cabin owners). For a small fee, guests may now book time with Judi and her horses. Kids especially get a kick out of learning how to care for and groom a horse.
Two private, family owned, riverside parks are available for guest use as well. Between these two parks guests can enjoy river tubing, a youth zip line, built-in swimming pool, fabulous trout fishing, a LARGE fire pit and a covered picnic pavilion with grill. Did I mention how fabulous our parks are for outdoor events? Weddings, family reunions, birthdays??? Yes, FABULOUS!!
2-wheel drive vehicles are usually adequate to get to and from the cabins to the state road. If you have any difficulty whatsoever, we live just around the corner and are available to help you 24/7.

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 2006
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. Trillium 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
Trillium cabin is private yet convenient to features not available anywhere else. This cabin sits just above the Cane River. The view from the front porch is of the river as well as of the horse pasture which borders the river. 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).

Great weekend getaway!
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your house this weekend! Beautiful house in the mountains!
Perfect mountain getaway
As usual, the cabin was perfect. We fished in the river, sat in the hot tub, and hiked nearby trails. This is probably our 5th or 6th time at Riverwalk and it won’t be our last.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review AND pointing out that you have visited multiple times...now THAT'S a true compliment :-)
So much appreciate your loyalty! Laura
Peaceful valley cabin
We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin was well kept and immaculate. Laura was very responsive and accommodating. We enjoyed the meadow and the river very much as did our Lab!
Thanks for taking the time to post a review! You booking in Riverwalk again within a months time (trying a different cabin) is a nice compliment to what we're doing and MUCH appreciated! Laura
perfect down to the last detail
this is an amazing rental. as soon as you walk in you can feel how much love and attention is put into this cabin. the cabin is so well stocked with little things you wouldnt even think to pack. everything was high quality and clean and comfortable. the location was beautiful right on the river. we had some issues during our travels to the cabin and Laura was easy to contact and quick to help us. we would definitely recommend this cabin.
Let's just say that it was not our cup of tea.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review on VRBO, as well as on Google. I apologize if there is anything we didn't address that (within our control) we could have done better to improve your stay. I wish you much success the next time you are in search of lodging in having all of your expectations met. Laura
Loved our stay as usual
As always enjoyed very much even though stay was shortened due to a personnal matter. Cabin is very cozy and quite. The owner is the most accommodating in the world. Firewood was easily ignitable with left over newspaper even though fire starter was supplied. If you want a week-end get away this is gold.
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review, as well as having become a "loyal lodger" :-) Looking forward to your return! Laura
