Linville River Log Cabins | Pet Policies

As you read our pet policy keep in mind that we understand pets are part of the family. This is why all cabins are pet friendly. We also recently lowered our pet fee and amended our pet policy to include most breeds and sizes.

WAIT FOR APPROVAL BEFORE MAKING YOUR RESERVATION AND PAYING A PET FEE.  We cannot accept high shedding breeds or breeds that are perceived by others as aggressive (i.e., families with children.)

Limit TWO, under 50 pounds each, $85 for one or two.   Please send your approval request to or call 828-387-6688.

Sometimes we must place a hold between $250 and $300 on your credit card for a damage deposit.  Most of the time it is not necessary.  By telling us about your dog and answering the numbered questions below, we will make that determination.  If required, the damage deposit is also to cover odor and flea infestation.  It is NOT part of the pet fee.     If you have positive references under an AirBnB, Expedia or similar travel account, regarding your pet, it may help to speed the pet approval.


  • What breed is your dog?
  • How much does your dog weigh?
  • Please attach a recent photo with response.
  • What flea and tick control do you use?
  • Send a picture of your “up to date” dog collar tag that must be worn at all times.
  • IS YOUR PET IS ALLOWED ON FURNITURE OR BED AT HOME? NOT A PROBLEM.  Please bring your sheets, pillow cases and blankets for the size bed/s in your cabin.   We will provide covers for the sofa and chair in the living room area

A leash must be used at all times.  Pick up all excrement deposits.

Bath your dog no earlier than one day before arrival.  Bathing you pet in our bathtubs is not permitted.  Additional charges are applicable.  Sometimes owners are desensitized to the smell of their own dogs.  We use two different family owned cleaning services.  Neither family owns pets and they can smell dog odor with very little any effort.   If they smell dog odor then the next guest will be able to as well.  Charges can vary and are applicable.

Pets cannot be left unattended at any time.  Not outside or inside.  They may be left inside a pet transport or portable kennel.  The kennel must be visible through the window.  If pet/s are left inside and not kenneled we will attempt to call you.  After which we will remove the pet and leash them on the deck. We reserve the right to ask a guest to leave and forfeit all or part of the damage deposit.

 All Excrement must be picked up and disposed of in tightly sealed bags (plastic grocery bags will suffice).

*In the state of North Carolina, by taking possession of vacation rental property,  the guest is bound by all terms, conditions and agreements of the hotel room or property.

Thank you,
