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 Burnsville

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!

Amazing weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for our anniversary weekend and loved it. No unwanted surprises. Everything was great. The view is perfect. Owners had plenty of firewood to keep a fire going the entire weekend. We loved everything down the the coffee pot! Grocery store not too far either. I highly recommend this place, and we will be returning ASAP.

This Cabin is AWESOME!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Morning Glory. When we arrived at the cabin it was already dark and the owner had left a light on for us and had the heat going. The cabin had everything we could have possibly needed. It was already stocked with all of the paper products for us (paper towel, toilet paper, paper plates, etc), coffee/tea and nice thick bath towels/rags. The beds slept great. The place was very nice and really clean. Highly recommend this cabin. The owner was fantastic to work with. We will definitely be going back to Morning Glory. Thanks for a wonderful stay!!

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a girls only weekend with my three daughters. This location and cabin are perfect! From the sound of the river to the gorgeous night sky...hours spent in the hot tub talking about life, relationships, and dreams. Comfie beds, everything you might need, and then some. We are already planning a return trip in the spring!!
