Everyone has seen a sign that says “No dogs allowed,” and dog lovers know that they shouldn’t take it personally. Dogs are banned because of allergies, or health codes, or for any one of a few sensible reasons, and dog lovers know that the onus is on them to take it in stride and adapt. After all, the dog can’t read the sign – and good thing, too, to spare his feelings!

Fido’s “people” just have to leave Fido outside or at home, but often what actually happens is that Fido’s people just don’t go to places where they’d have to leave their best friend behind. A sign that says “no dogs allowed” can sometimes feel like a sign that says “no dog lovers allowed,” especially if it just isn’t any fun for you without your four-legged buddy. Thankfully, though, you can vacation in the legendary Smoky Mountains with your dog; just choose one of the pet friendly cabins in Gatlinburg available from Ski Mountain Chalets!

Lots of Choices for Pet Friendly Cabins in Gatlinburg

Canterbury Cottage is a pet-friendly 2 BR/1.5 BA chalet in a wooded area sleeps 6. Near Ober Gatlinburg and the Gatlinburg strip, it boasts 1 king-size bed and 2 queen beds, a hot tub and a Jacuzzi, a game table with ping pong, pool and air hockey, 3 TVs equipped with cable and DVD players (so you can still enjoy an evening on the couch with Fido), a wood-burning fireplace, and a full kitchen, as well as a washer and dryer. Fido can take in all the scents on those famous Smoky Mountain breezes from the beautiful deck, or you can explore the woodsy backyard together.

OberBaden for Your Old Buddy

What do you think about when you imagine mountain cabins in Gatlinburg? Something deep in the woods, with that one-of-a-kind styling that’s hard to find elsewhere? Well, if that sounds good, OberBaden could be just right for you and yours.

This 4 BR/3 BA original A-frame has all the charm you’d expect from a classic alpine lodge, with top-of-the-line amenities, including WiFi, LCD TVs that support Netflix and Blu-Ray, a game room with a pool table and wet bar, an 8-person hot tub, king-, queen-, full-, and twin-size beds, multiple outdoor deck areas, and a secluded location that also includes access to Chalet Village club houses with a swimming pool, tennis, and fitness center.

OberBaden is near the boundary of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, so make sure to keep a leash on your pets, lest they have a close encounter with one or more turkeys, foxes, coyotes, raccoons, or even bears.

Mountain View for All of You

If your crew of up to 11 comes with no more than 2 canines, Mountain View will be one of the best pet friendly cabins for you. This 4 BR/4 BA cabin has 3 floors of top-quality amenities, including a hot tub, a game room with a pool table, a wood fireplace AND a gas fireplace, DirecTV in every room, multiple patios/outdoor lounge spaces, a fully-equipped kitchen and a washer/dryer, as well as incredible Smoky Mountain views.

Imagine coffee on the deck with your family and pooch while you sneak him or her a few bites of some vacation delicacies and enjoy the unbeatable view of the Smokies together. Pretty perfect, right?
