Nov 05, 2021

When you start planning a vacation, you probably wonder who will watch your dog while you’re gone. Then you come up with a plan for a pet sitter or dropping your dog off at a boarding kennel, but why leave your pooch at home when they could come with you? There are plenty of pet friendly accommodations in the Smokies, including our cabins! Check out these 5 reasons why you should bring your dog to our pet friendly cabins in Gatlinburg:

1. You don’t have to leave them at home.

Dogs are a part of the family, and everyone is sad when they don’t see their pet every day. So why leave your dog at home when he or she can come with you? We have a great selection of pet friendly cabins that accommodate dogs so your furry family member can stay with you while you’re on vacation!

2. You’ll save some money.

A huge perk of bringing your dog with you to stay in our pet friendly cabins in Gatlinburg is saving money. Boarding your dog in a kennel or doggy daycare for a week can be expensive! Even if you considered hiring a pet sitter, it can add up quickly. By bringing your dog with you on vacation, you’ll save some money. Plus, you’ll feel more comfortable having your pet with you instead of in a new place where he or she doesn’t know the people well.

3. There are plenty of fun things to do in the area.

However, by staying in a pet friendly cabin in Gatlinburg, you won’t have to leave your dog behind! Everyone will feel more comfortable if they stay together, including your dog!
