Overview

High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains Cabin Rental Photos and Description

On the Cane River with 2 riveside parks with 200 hikeable acres

'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 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. 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).

Beautiful and very well taken care of!

  • 5 of 5

This getaway was the first one my family and I have taken in 15 years! We were looking for a secluded place to be able to reconnect! We found that and so much more with this cabin! The cabin was beautiful and had everything in it one would need! It was very clean and wonderful! Tubing, zip lining, visiting with the horses and donkeys, hiking the property, grilling out and enjoying the hot tub was just a few of the things you can do on the property! We plan on making this a yearly trip to the cabin and I can't wait for next year already! You won't be disappointed at all picking this place as your next getaway!

No disappointments

  • 5 of 5

Driving into the farmland property was so beautiful. Just the place I have dreamed of for our family. The granddaughters loved it and started exploring down by the river by the park the Ewings built. The zip line was the favorite.

Judi Ewing made this a trip of lifetime for our granddaughters by introducing them to her horses and giving them basic instructions on taking care of their horse. Judi is a master at "

Horse whispering" teaching girls how to have a relationship with their horses.

The cabin was great. We are going back in October for further looking at lots at Riverwalk for our family.

Excellent cabin on the river

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin and the river! We brought our 5 year old son and 2 dogs and everyone had a great time. Really nice cabin with everything we needed. Short drive to a nice grocery store in Burnsville and to other activities. My son and our dogs loved the river. In some areas, the river is very shallow so it was perfect for our son. I had a work meeting in Asheville but we wanted to stay outside of town so we chose this cabin. This was the first time we have used VRBO and we had a great experience. Thank you for a great stay!

Fantastically Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our long Father's Day weekend at the Trillium. So clean, comfortable and charming. We made breakfasts and enjoyed coffee and visits in the rocking chairs out on the porch. Your cabin is lovely and I would recommend to all! Burnsville is a delightful town too!! Thanks for sharing the beauty of the mountains with us. We can't wait to visit again one day soon!

Nice 2 day vacation

We enjoyed our visit. Bad weather made day trips less fun, but the cabin was as advertised!

Thanks!

Great cabin and surrounding area!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, I and our 12 year old Lab had a wonderful fishing trip. The cabin was immaculate and well stocked. The hot tub was wonderful and clean. The area around the cabin was majestic. Beautiful river frontage and pastures with horses grazing. The fishing was good. You can tell the owner's take pride in their property and surroundings. We would like to come back soon & bring some friends. Thank you for sharing your wonderful property. Zacky our dog thanks you too for making it Dog friendly.
