Frequently Asked Questions


I see some cabins only provide starter packs, what do you provide?
We strive to make your stay as easy as possible; therefore, you will find enough of the following items to last the duration of your stay:


What do I need to bring with me?

We provide all the linens and towels, including pool towels for the pool and hot tubs.
Pack for the weather, knowing that you can also do laundry while staying at the cabin.

We can occasionally accommodate early arrival or late departure for a nominal fee.  Contact us to see if it is available for your stay.

Are you pet friendly?

Yes, we allow up to two dogs to be brought with on your stay with us at Ridge Top Adventure Cabin.  We ask that only well-behaved dogs are brought and that they be crated when left unattended.  We do not allow pets at Hidden Adventure Cabin.

Can I take my dog with me hiking on the trails in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park?
For multiple reasons, primarily safety and preservation of the National Park, dogs are not allowed on most trails.  There are allowed on the below two trails.  Please visit National Park Service Pet Policy for up-to-date information. 
-Gatlinburg Trail (near Gatlinburg, TN) – 4 miles roundtrip / easy trail / trailhead access at Sugarlands Visitor Center or at traffic light #10 in Gatlinburg
-Oconaluftee River Trail (near Cherokee, NC) – 3.2 miles roundtrip / easy trail / trailhead access at Oconaluftee Visitor Center
Pick up a self-guided activity sheet at Sugarlands or Oconaluftee Visitor Center, then take a walk on one of the pet-friendly trails to earn your pet a Great Smoky Mountains National Park B.A.R.K. Ranger certificate!  There are B.A.R.K. Ranger items available for purchase at park bookstores and online through the Great Smoky Mountains Association at  Great Smoky Mountain Association BARK items

Dogs are allowed in campgrounds, picnic areas, and along roads, but must be kept on a leash at all times.  The Cosby picnic site is close to the cabin with a beautiful road with a creek running along-side it up to the picnic site.  Other ideas of places to take your pups include Mills Park with Gatlinburg Dog Park right across the street or Mynatt Park.  Looking for more information like what restaurants are dog friendly?  Check out:  Bring for Gatlinburg
