Dogs are the perfect cure for a rainy day or any time your kid thinks about saying, “I’m bored.” All you have to do is grab a toy or a bone and have fun!

It’s no secret that having a pet around is a great way to reduce your stress level, whether you are at home or on vacation. This is why we recommend guests with pets to choose to stay inside one of our many pet friendly Gatlinburg cabins.

The last thing you want when enjoying a relaxing vacation in the Smoky Mountains is having to feel a pesky twinge of stress from something you cannot control back home, so why not help eliminate this situation by doing everything you can to help forget it.

By choosing to stay in one of our pet friendly Gatlinburg cabins, guests save themselves the added cost of having to board their pet or find a sitter back home. This can save them upwards of $50 to $100 a day, spending on which you decide.

Our pet friendly cabins only have a small pet fee that goes toward helping cleaning the cabin for the next family or group to enjoy.

Fewer Schedules to Juggle

Speaking of hiring a sitter or considering bordering your dog, outside of the initial extra cost, this adds an extra set of schedules that you have to work around in order to enjoy your vacation. Because these options carry their own hours of operation that you have to manipulate your vacation plans to accommodate that.

You and your family should only have to worry about having fun and enjoying your own time together, no one else’s.

Helps You Stick to a Routine

Even though you are on vacation, it’s not a bad idea to try and stick to some semblance of your routine back home. Not only will this help you enjoy the most of your vacation by making sure you get up early and see as much of the day as possible, but it will also help with the transition when you return home and go back to daily life.

Chances are, he or she is used to waking up at a certain time of day, eating at the same time, and going out around at certain times of the day. This means that your pet can help you stick to your routine without you having to stress too much about remembering to stick to it, all you have to do is look for cues from you dog.

Helps You Feel Safer

Not that you need any extra sense of security when you stay inside one of our secluded pet friendly Gatlinburg cabins, but it is an added bonus when traveling with your pet. Just as if you were at home, your four-legged friend will help keep you informed of any unusual noise or visitor that may come near your rental, even if it is just the wind.

That being said, please keep in mind that if the unusual sound does turn out to be a bear or another member of the Smoky Mountain wildlife community, it is important to keep your pet separate from the animals. This is both for your pet and the wildlife’s safety.
