Gatlinburg’s Sky Lift carries visitors and their four-legged friends up to an 1,800-foot overlook with spectacular views of the Smoky Mountains. While this experience is to be enjoyed, Glampers might start itching for a longer ride, out of the town and onto the summits. At the gateway to Great Smokey Mountain National Park, Gatlinburg has nearby access to rock climbing and hiking and serves as the perfect launching point for an outdoor adventure. Adventurous travelers looking to immerse themselves more fully in the mountainous forest surrounding the city can choose to forego the inns and hotels in the bustling town in favor of accommodations that place them in more intimate proximity with the region’s lush environs. Unwind after an active day at one of these pet-friendly accommodations in Gatlinburg’s backyard.
