If you’re looking for the perfect place to travel with your pooch in western North Carolina, then Asheville should be at the top of your list.  With so many pet friendly accommodations, you’ll have no problem finding somewhere you'll want to stay with your four-legged sidekick.  And, when it comes to pet friendly things to do in the area, Asheville definitely doesn’t disappoint!  This unique city with its inviting culture and welcoming atmosphere is known far and wide for its variety of outdoor activities and local attractions.  It's no wonder Asheville is often referred to as “America’s Happiest City,” especially for people and their pets!

Places to stay

Asheville's pet friendly accommodations are wide ranging, and you can easily find spacious vacation homes, cozy cabins, quaint bed & breakfasts, comfortable motels and inns, as well as luxurious hotels all around the area.  Pet friendly accommodations are conveniently located within Asheville's city limits, and many offer extra pet amenities such as fenced-in yards, on-site walking trails, pet beds, and doggie treats.  Additionally, there are nearby pet friendly accommodations within a short distance to Asheville, if you prefer to stay outside the city.  These include Black Mountain, NC and Hendersonville, NC.

Pet friendly activities

If you and your furkid are outdoorsy types, then Asheville is right up your alley!  There are plenty of parks here for dry land activities, as well as places for water dogs to swim, paddle board and kayak with their pet parents.  Hiking and walking trails are prevalent, with flat trails for beginners along with steep routes in the mountains for more experienced two-legged and four-legged hikers.   If you’re searching for a more extravagant outdoor experience, you can visit the stunning Biltmore Estate.  Your pooch can walk around the grounds with you as long as he is on a leash, and he can join you on the outside patios adjoining the estate's eateries.

With its wonderful pet friendly accommodations, loads of activities, welcoming hospitality and lively culture, it's easy to see why pet parents are pleased when they bring their furry family members to Asheville for a pet friendly getaway!
