When you plan a vacation for your entire family, you shouldn’t have to leave your furry friend behind! At Stony Brook Cabins, you can choose from our many pet friendly cabins so that you can bring your pet along on vacation. Enjoy the amazing views and great amenities offered in our cabins while spending time with your pet. If you find yourself debating whether or not to bring your dog on your trip, check out our 6 reasons to stay in our pet friendly cabins in Gatlinburg:
1. No hassles, no worries
Bringing your dog with you on vacation can help bring peace of mind! You won’t have to worry about the hassle of arranging a pet sitter or boarding your animal. With your pet by your side, you can also relax and avoid any stress over wondering how he or she is doing!
2. Keeps you active
Explore the great outdoors with your pup and take in all the scenery the Great Smoky Mountains has to offer! You will always be encouraged to step outside and get some fresh air on a brisk walk with your dog. While most trails are not pet friendly in the Smokies, we offer plenty of great walking spots around our cabin for you and your pet to enjoy!
3. Save money
Believe it or not, you can save money when you rent one of our pet friendly cabins! There is a small pet fee deposit, but in the long run, it is definitely the cheaper option! You are actually saving money when you pay the pet fee by bringing your pet along on vacation because you can avoid the expense of having to board the animal. Kennel fees can add up quick, and even hiring a pet sitter can become quite expensive.
4. Bonding experience
For most of us, our animals are part of the family. There’s nothing like waking up to your dog snuggling with you! Having your pet with you can make you feel like you’re at home. Your family will love getting to hang out and play with their best friend!
5. Pet friendly attractions
Our cabins are not the only place your pet can enjoy and explore! Gatlinburg offers many pet friendly attractions in the area including:
- Dollywood’s “Doggywood”: pets can relax while guests enjoy the Dollywood theme park. Make sure to book reservations in advance, as space is limited.
- Visit Gatlinburg’s many pet-friendly shops. At Pets & Claws Pet Fashion, owners can spoil their animal with dog apparel, toys, and collectibles. At the Village Shops, an outdoor retail area, pets can enjoy a stroll outside. Drop into Simply Animals, located in these shops, for a homemade treat or gift.
- There is also a range of dog-friendly restaurants that pet owners have to choose from. Head on over to Dick’s Last Resort for sarcastic banter and delicious food, but don’t forget your dog! This is just one of the many restaurants located in the Gatlinburg area that allow dogs on their patio.
6. Easy travel
Traveling with pets has become a growing trend because of the ease and low cost. Most likely you will be traveling by car, which makes the trip that much easier with a pet in tow! If you do decide to travel by car, it is recommended to keep your animals in the backseat where they can stay safe.
In our cabins, your pet will have everything it needs, but we suggest bringing some of your pets favorite things like special toys, food bowls or blankets. Take a look at our pet friendly cabins in Gatlinburg to find the cabin that is best for your vacation.
