Overview

About the property

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).

Awesome cabin!

  • 5 of 5

If you like clean then you'll love this place. It might have been the cleanest place I've ever stayed in! The only downside I can think of is that the river is not accessible in front of the cabin. However, it is only a 5 minute walk to a well kept area where you enjoy the crystal clear river. Be careful though, the rocks can be slippery!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 9 year old, 6 year old, and two small dogs stayed at this very clean cabin. The kids tubed almost daily and loved the zip line. We watched fireworks from the lawn down at the pavilion. We hope to be back.

The cabin was stocked with everything we needed. It was clean, modern decor,comfortable furniture

  • 5 of 5

We rented both cabins. They were well above our expectations. The furniture and decor is modern and comfortable. Cleanliness was excellent. The view was absolutely gorgeous. And we enjoyed the sound of the river flowing just beneath us. We will return to this cabin on a regular basis.

Our stay at Trillium was magical. It was relaxing and refreshing.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed Spring Break in the mountains, traveling from the Gulf Coast. The setting over Toodie Creek was peaceful and serene, including the lovely sound of running water. We walked around the Riverwalk area, enjoyed the little town of Burnsville, and hiked to a gorgeous waterfall. This is a great getaway for individuals, couples, or families.

A bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We just spent our second vacation with Riverwalk vacation rentals. The cabins are so clean and well equipped. If you're seeking a little tranquility and want to unplug this is the place for you. We enjoyed the wood fireplace and the hot tub every night. Asheville is an easy drive if you care to spend the day. The little town of Burnsville is charming and quaint, too! We will be back.

Trillium Cabin

Google Maps or smartphone GPS destination address = State Rd 1112, Burnsville, NC “State Rd 1112, Burnsville, NC” is also known as “Toodies Creek Rd”, then:

? From 197 S / Pensacola Rd, turn right on “Toodies Creek Rd”, cross over bridge. Continue on “Toodies Creek Rd” by turning left on the other side of the bridge.

Travel approximately ¾ mile up “Toodies Creek Rd” to “Ray Farm Rd”, turn left (be carefully looking for the street sign as it is visible but the actual street is not. “Ray Farm Rd” dips down so you cannot see the street until you turn onto it).

Take “Ray Farm Rd” until you see the group of mailboxes to the left…continue straight entering “Sledrunner Rd”. Follow Sledrunner around the horse pasture, Trillium is 2nd cabin on the right.
