A Cabin With an Incredible View
WHERE: Bryson City, North Carolina
Perhaps the only thing more beautiful than this cabin is its view. This cabin, which is just a stone’s throw away from Bryson City, looks out over the absolutely stunning Smokey Mountains. You and your canine companion can spend the first part of the day enjoying the great outdoors and then come back and experiment with all of the great ways to bask in the beauty of the mountains. Kick back on the porch, huddle up next to the fire pit, or lounge in the hammock. The human members can even enjoy hot tubbing—all without ever having to look away from that incredible view. (OK, occasionally, you’re going to want to look away to admire how cute your dog is.)

The National Park Lover
WHERE: Bar Harbor, Maine
For the outdoorsy dog-lover, it can be a bit of a bummer that you’ll never get to explore all of America’s National Parks together (unless you’re fine with just visiting the developed parts, in which case you can technically say you and your dog went together). However, Acadia National Park serves as a welcome exception. There, over 100 miles of hiking trails are dog-friendly (as long as they’re leashed). After all that hiking, you and your tuckered-out pooch can rest at this Bar Harbor house that features a beautiful view of Frenchman’s Bay.

The Cozy Woodland A-Frame
WHERE: Bend, Oregon
Bend, Oregon is an outdoor paradise, but this A-frame is just so dang picturesque you could easily spend the length of your getaway photographing your pup in various cozy nooks and crannies. Inside you’ll find a living room where you can warm up next to the fireplace, as well as a second lounge on the upper level where you can play some records or, depending on your musical skills, serenade your dog. (Science says it’s unclear if dogs truly enjoy music but maybe you’ll be the first to confirm it!) And outside you can let your dog run around the fenced-in backyard while you prepare something to eat on the barbecue.
