We ask that only return guests who are familiar with our cabins and driveways bring motorcycles. (If you have not stayed with us before and wish to arrive by motorcycle, please consult with Mike prior to making your reservation.) Please no trailers or motorhomes.

We are pet friendly! We love animals and want you and your pet to enjoy some time in the mountains! Click here to see our pet amenities and cabins.

We do charge a pet-fee - a one time fee that covers two pets for the entire length of their stay. A portion of every pet fee is DONATED to local spay and neuter programs. The animals thank you in advance!!!!!

Please ask us if your pets number more than two and we will try to accommodate your family for an additional pet fee to cover the extra cleaning to make it spotless for our next guests. If approved, a second pet fee will be added to your reservation.

Pet-friendly Cabins

We have four cabins that are pet-friendly and set up for a mountain getaway with a dog with a pooch pail of toys and a doggy gate on the porch: The Paw Print, The Hound Heaven, The Holly, and The Pine. (No pets allowed in The Oak please!)

All 4 pet friendly cabins feature a doggy gate on the porch. The Paw Print features a fenced yard that is directly accessible from the porch. The pet owners are responsible for their pets at all times (maximum of two unless special arrangements are made). You will be expected to pick up your dog’s waste from the grounds/kennel/yard and place it in a plastic baggy in the outdoor trash can. Pets are welcome inside the cabins, but you will be responsible for any damage to your cabin caused by your pet.

Pet Requirements

Pets are required to be UTD on all shots and have flea/tick protection. They are likely to encounter many more insects when out hiking (or even just using the bathroom) than they are accustomed to in their more suburban lives.

We reserve the right to make your pet find other accommodations if he or she at any time disturbs our other guests. No refunds will be granted to early departures due to problem pets. (Not that we have had a single problem with a pet guest!

Absolutely outstanding in every single way. They thought of everything to make our stay perfect. Amazing place and ownership!! Priced so well and the quiet, peace and comfort was phenomenal. We stayed in the Holly and it was simply perfect. Addition: We loved it so much the first time, we had to visit again. My girlfriend and I absolutely love this place!!! Our first time was so awesome, we had to do it again. Twice in 5+ months. The owners have thought of everything. Just arrive with some food if you want to cook and you really don't need anything else. The setting is simply amazing. The cabins incredibly cozy, hot tubs the bomb and decompression second to none. We will most definitely come back without a shadow of doubt!! We don't have dogs, but the places are pet friendly. There isn't a single thing I would want different or change. Even the price per night is an outstanding deal in my opinion. Thank you for another fantastic getaway......

This is a true place of peace, especially for those with furry children! The cabin has everything you could want or need. The porches are my favorite feature. The cabin has a tin roof and a hot tub, so even if it rains, it is a wonderful place to visit. The owners are so gracious and accommodating…a perfect experience!

My partner & I stayed at the Pine Cabin for 3 nights in early April. The cabin was BEAUTIFUL, well furnished & out of sight from other cabins. The kitchen had all the necessary implements & spices for meal prep & the split wall unit kept us warm & cozy. The real treat was the on-deck hot tub where we started each morning. Sitting in the warm water, watching the steam of our breath while the sun was climbing up the trees was GLORIOUS! And visiting the town of Hot Springs took us back to many hikes we have done through this area. Thanks for this cabin & we will be back!

The Oak Cabin was perfect. Lots of beautiful sights to take in. I'm so impressed I'm ready to go back. So much peace and quiet. The hot tub on the porch was a huge plus. Can't wait to get back.

My son and his border collie were hiking the Appalachian trail. Dogs are not permitted in the backcountry though Smoky Mountains National Park. I needed to keep Ronin for 5 days. I am so glad I found this property. Great price for a warm, cozy , pet friendly place to spend the week with the dogs. HSLC is one of the few locations I have ever stayed that is exactly as advertised. Clean, comfortable and loved the fenced in area for the dogs at Paw Prints. No cons to speak of except the trash heap property across the road. This is not the HSLC owners fault but it is disgusting and their dog barked all night long.
