Pet-Friendly Cabin Tips

Here are some pet-friendly cabin tips so you can make sure Fido has a memorable vacation, too.

Before you get to your Highlands, NC cabin rental:

  • Bring your pet bed and anything else your pet will need for a comfortable night’s sleep
  • Bring any medications your pup needs
  • Don’t forget the leash and sanitary bags for pet waste!
  • Pack the food and water bowls first so you don’t forget them. It can be easy to forget the simplest items when you’re in a rush.
  • If you’re visiting when it’ll be cold outside and your pet isn’t used to cold weather, you may want to invest in some pet sweaters to keep Fido warm. Think about when you’re visiting and consider the climate and weather.
  • Bring your pup’s favorite toys. Think about indoor and outdoor toys.
  • Prepare a pet first aid kit. Think flea and tick medicine and anything that will calm an anxious pet if travel and change makes them wary.
  • Consider making copies of pet records, just in case, for emergency situations. If you need to see a vet while you’re here, this should help expedite the process.

Here are some pet-friendly cabin tips for after you to your Highlands, NC cabin rental:

  • Look up local laws and guidelines about leashing your pet
  • Make a comfortable space for your pet in the cabin. Put down their bed and their toys and let them know this is their spot.
  • Try to follow your normal daily routine as much as possible. Try feeding your dog at the same time. The same goes for daily walks. Here is something to also keep in mind: the more you stick to your normal daily routine, the more comfortable your dog will feel about being on vacation.
  • If your pets are normally allowed on furniture, consider covering couches and beds with blankets or towels to avoid any damage or pet hair getting everywhere.
  • If possible, try not to leave your dog alone for long periods of time. Even the most well-behaved dog can get stressed out and destructive in unfamiliar territories and situations. If you do need to leave Fido alone for a while, consider putting him in a crate and letting the property managers know. The good thing is that Highlands and the surrounding areas are very per-friendly so you won’t have to leave your dog home that much if you don’t want to.

Highlands NC Cottages Versus Cabins

The main difference between a cottage and a cabin is that a cabin is made from wood and constructed of logs.

Highlands NC Cabin Rentals

Cabins also have a long history. When you think about cabins, many think about simple structures built by first-generation settlers.

Landmark’s Highlands NC cabin rentals have a rustic look and are found at the base of mountains and in wooden areas, but they are a much more modern and sophisticated version of the log cabins we think about from the country’s early days.

Highlands NC Cottage Rentals

When we think of a cottage, we tend to conjure up images of a small and simple house. At Landmark, we have luxury Highlands cottage rentals for you to choose from. Unlike a cabin, a cottage can be made from any type of material, whether it’s stone, brick, wood, or something else. In English architecture, a cottage will have a ground floor along with an upper level with one or more bedrooms. In the U.S., we often think of cabins and cottages being in picturesque settings near lakes, forests and mountains. Landmark’s Highlands NC cabin rentals and cottages are no exception.

At Landmark Vacation Rentals, we have a variety of cabins and cottages to choose from. They come in all shapes and sizes and can accommodate a small party or a large group.
