Vacation is Always Better Spent with Your Fur Friend by Your Side

Enjoy your vacation to the fullest with your furry friend by your side. Having your fur baby with you brings out the best in your experiences. Vacations are always sweeter when you are surrounded by all those you love, and we believe in having the opportunity to have your pet enjoy themselves with you! In the Smoky Mountains, you will be surrounded with beautiful views of the mountain ranges, flowing streams and sprawling fields. Bring a doggy bag and set your pet up to ride as your co-pilot through the beautiful landscapes that await you! Draw back the sunroof, roll down the windows and let the breeze take you both on an adventure to remember. Take your pet auto touring in Cades Cove. In Cades Cove, you can travel an 11-mile loop all from the comforts of your car. While your pet is leashed, you are able to enjoy a nice picnic and go for a short walk. See all that Gatlinburg has to offer you! Book your pet-friendly cabin in Gatlinburg and take on the Smokies together one foot and paw at a time.

Take a Stroll in Downtown Gatlinburg While Your Pet Relaxes at Your Pet-Friendly Gatlinburg Cabin

Dogs enjoy alone time just as much as humans. Why not plan for some down time in downtown Gatlinburg and scour the streets for sweets, treats, and shows while Fido soaks up the Smoky Mountain sunshine. Set your fur baby up with a comfy crate on the deck of your pet-friendly cabin and let him nap in the sunshine. The breezes on a cabin deck are amazing and will help keep your pet cool if you choose to let them stay outside. You can also cozily crate up your pet indoors and let them enjoy the cool air conditioning if it happens to be a hot day. Let your pet stick behind to indulge in all the luxuries of the Gatlinburg cabin while you enjoy a night on the town. There are several shows to take in while you are downtown as well delicious restaurants to grab a scrumptious meal at.

Explore the Outdoors with Your Energetic Fur Friend

Gatlinburg is a wonderful place to engage with your pets. There is a casual trail where you can even take your pet on a walk. The Gatlinburg Trail provides a lovely day adventure where you can walk your pet while leashed. Along the Gatlinburg Trail, you will come across a gravel road with a few off trails. You will encounter a few old, dated chimneys and housing foundations that have stood the test of time.

Enjoy Dog-Friendly Dining Downtown

Going out to eat while having your pets on vacation with you can be seen as somewhat of a challenge. However, in Gatlinburg, dog owners are given a wide range of dining options. There are a few restaurants that happily offer outdoor seating where they permit well-behaved pets to be leashed up by your side so that you can enjoy a meal on the town together. Howard’s Restaurant in downtown Gatlinburg happens to be one of these restaurants. At Howard's Restaurant, you can enjoy a delightful meal on the back patio outdoors. The patio is quaint and relaxing while overlooking a babbling creek. Howard's serves Smoky Mountain rainbow trout, chicken, steaks and are well-known for their tasty burgers. If you are looking for something a little more "on the go", give Fannie Farkles a try. Fannie Farkles provides visitors of downtown Gatlinburg a type of fairground grub, street side. Order yourself peppers onions and sausage, a sub, or a foot-long corn dog right from the sidewalk!
