Banner Elk, NC is Pet Friendly!

When you come on vacation in Banner Elk, you don't have to leave Fido behind!  


There are plenty of pet friendly lodging options, and lots of fun things to do with you pup. Check out some of our great pet boutiques.  Enjoy a walk in Tate-Evans park, and let them off leash in the fenced dog park section.  The Greenway leaves from the park, and meanders past the duck pond.  


There are even events for dog lovers! Banner Elk hosts the annual High Country Pet Fest in July, Pet Easter Egg Hunt, and Halloween Costume Contest for pets! Dogs are welcomed at the Summer Concerts in the Park in Tate-Evans Park (on a leash). 


Sip wine at Bannery Elk Winery. Leashed dogs welcome at the outdoor tasting area!


Hit the trails with your pooch.  Check out hikes on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Elk River Falls, the Pisgah National Forest in Linville, and Roan Mountain State Park in TN.  


If you come on July 4th, you and Fido can join the parade!
