Still trying to decide whether or not you want to bring your favorite pet with you on your family’s next trip to the Smoky Mountains? We say the more the merrier. But, if you need more convincing, be sure to read the reasons we love renting a pet-friendly Gatlinburg cabin below!
4 Reasons to Book a Pet-Friendly Gatlinburg Cabin
Allows Whole Family to Travel Together
Family vacations are hard to enjoy when you cannot share your time with your entire family, including your beloved pup! Sure, you will still have fun no matter who travel with, but there is always something just a little more special about sharing your vacation time with the ones you love that helps create better and longer lasting memories for years to come. That is where our pet-friendly Gatlinburg cabins come in.
Not only do these rentals give families and guests a peaceful and relaxing place to stay during their vacation, but it also gives them the unique opportunity to be able to share this experience with their pet, thus bringing the whole family together. Unlike other rentals that require pet owners to either board their pet or find a sitter, our pet-friendly rentals invite both owners and pets to spend a few relaxing days together in the heart of the Smoky Mountains.

Good For Your Health
Did you know that traveling with your pet is both good for your health as well as your pooch’s? It’s true! This means that in addition to helping you all create long-lasting memories together, you and your dog will also be helping each other live longer by vacationing together.
For humans, dogs help reduce stress levels, which in turn lowers the risk of cardiac problems and depression. For dogs, being around humans helps reduce anxiety which then causes stress.
It always seems like the days leading up to your vacation are a rush. Not only do you have to make sure that all of your clothes are in order, your kids are packed, the house is ready for you to leave, but you also need to make sure that you have everything you need for your vacation. The last thing you should be worrying about adding into all that chaos is having to figure out the best time to meet your neighbors, friend, or boarder to drop your dog off. It is much simply just to let him/her hop into the car with you and hit the road to enjoy your travels.
This means that you can start enjoying your trip sooner and you will get a jumpstart on reducing your stress and worry levels before your vacation begins!
Saves You Money
Just like how staying in a pet-friendly Gatlinburg cabin can save you a ton of headache in terms of not having to finagle your vacation schedule with a neighbor, relative or boarder, the same goes for your wallet. By not having to enlist the help from these friends or businesses, you also don’t have to pay them for watching your dog when you go out of town. This means that you will have more money to play with during your stay.
If you think about it, a pet boarder costs roughly $35 to $65 a day, per pet. A pet-friendly Gatlinburg cabin has a small, one-time cleaning deposit. The difference between these two costs can quickly add up to a nice dinner for your family or a new collection of souvenirs to bring home with you when the vacation is done.
