As soon as I heard about Auntie Belham’s Cabin Rentals in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, I started begging my mom to pack my bag! These pet friendly vacation rentals in the heart of the Smoky Mountains are surrounded by so many places for sniffing, exploring, and sightseeing, I know I won’t run out of things to do when we visit!
I wanted to find out more about Auntie Belham’s pet friendly accommodations, so I contacted a vacation expert with Auntie Belham's. I spoke with Jennifer, and she assured me that these places are a dream come true for a dog like me (and for my parents). Here’s a little snippet from our conversation.
Tucker: It looks like you’ve carved out a piece of doggie paradise at Auntie Belham’s Cabin Rentals in Pigeon Forge. What makes it a perfect vacation destination for us pooches...and our people?
Jennifer: Auntie Belham’s offers a wide variety of pet friendly vacation rentals, tucked back in the quiet, relaxing and scenic mountains, but not too far from all the fun that Pigeon Forge offers. Our vacation homes offer beautiful Smoky Mountain views, great hiking trails, places to view (but not chase) wildlife, babbling brooks and streams, with quiet and peaceful surroundings. They are the ultimate Smoky Mountain vacation spots, and we work hard to make sure they are also very affordable for our guests.
Tucker: I usually travel with both of my parents, but sometimes my extended family and friends come along. What are the options for your pet friendly rentals? Can you accommodate big groups?
Jennifer: One of the best things about Auntie Belham’s is whether you are traveling with just a few people or a large group, we have the perfect vacation rental to fit your needs. We have all occasion rentals, for a family vacation or family reunion, and they range from economy to luxury. We offer roomy cabins, spacious chalets, cozy cottages, and we can accommodate any size group, ranging from 2 to 41 guests!
Tucker: I think that just because it says pet friendly, it isn’t always “friendly”. Some places don’t allow certain breeds and don’t allow us larger dogs, which bums me out! What is your pet policy?
Jennifer: We love dogs of all types, shapes and sizes at Auntie Belham’s! Our pet fee includes a non-refundable $75 charge per pet/stay, and guests can bring up to 2 dogs with them on their vacation. There is a 50 lb. weight limit, but no breed restrictions. Plus, there are so many hiking trails in the Smoky Mountains for you to explore, you will want to come back every day!
Tucker: Personally, I like to “ruff” it when I travel, but my people take great pleasure in some of the niceties that a mountain vacation rental has to offer. What amenities do your properties offer?
Jennifer: Auntie Belham’s Cabins offer so many great amenities, we could talk all day about them! Some I can highlight for you are the incredible long distance views of the Smoky Mountains, cozying up to warm fires at the indoor and outdoor fireplaces, watching a great movie in one of our spacious home theaters, exciting game play in our fun-filled game rooms, and relaxing after a long hike in a hot sauna or bubbly Jacuzzi!
Tucker: If I had my way, I’d be sniffing and exploring the woods from dawn til dusk. Although my people enjoy that too (the exploring part), they would like to experience all that Pigeon Forge has to offer. What are some of the other things we can do in your area?
Jennifer: There’s plenty of excitement, fun and adventure waiting for you (and your people) at Pigeon Forge and in the Great Smoky Mountains! If I had to narrow it down, I would say hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park; visiting The Island for a cool, personalized, memorable souvenir; and visiting Patriot Park or Riverwalk Greenway are my top 3 in a never-ending list of great local places to visit. Once you’ve tackled these adventures, you will be ready to snuggle up to your mom for a good night’s sleep!
Tucker: What else can you tell me about Auntie Belham’s that makes it so special?
Jennifer: We have 23 years of experience in the vacation rental industry. So, when it comes to quality and knowing what’s best for our customers, we’ve got it down to a science. We offer the best possible accommodations at the best possible prices, and our customer service can’t be beat. Auntie Belham’s is the premier vacation management team for all of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and surrounding Smoky Mountain area vacation lodging, and we offer efficient, personalized and expert service. When people call to make a reservation, they can talk with any of our vacation rental experts who will be happy to answer any questions and help in every possible way. Tell your friends to bring their people and join us -- we’d love to have them!
Thanks so much for talking with me, Jennifer, and for letting me know that Auntie Belham’s Cabins are all that I dreamt they would be. I can’t wait to take in those great mountain views while hiking and exploring. It’s a dream come true!
