13 Pet-Friendly Cabins in Boone, NC

-

The rural setting of North Carolina’s most picturesque towns is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts and their pets. Between the rugged mountains, dense wood forests, and miles of interrupted wilderness, Boone is a fantastic destination worth exploring.

Not only is it home to Blue Ridge Parkway, America’s longest and arguably most scenic linear park, but Boone is also dotted with awe-inspiring sights like Grandfather Mountain, Watauga Lake, and the Appalachian Ski Mountains. It’s here where you’ll also find Elk Knob State Park, a 4,423-acre park full of pet-friendly trails.

If you’re planning a few days to Boone with your four-legged best friend, we recommend staying at one of the following pet-friendly rental homes we’ve chosen below. Some of the cabins have fenced-in yards while others are located next to pet-friendly hiking trails, making them the perfect jumping-off point for exploring the best of what Boone has to offer.
