DOG-CENTRIC VACATION RENTALS

DOG-CENTRIC VACATION RENTALS

We’re more than dog-friendly.

Barkwells is a unique, dog-centric place to run, swim and play with your four-legged friends. Exceptional vacation home accommodations in a gated community create a haven for like-minded dog lovers. You’ll find freedom and fun in a safe and secure environment on acres of fenced meadows with a pond.  Vacation with your dogs far away from every day, yet close to all the fun.

Cabins or Cottages?

ASHEVILLE AREA VACATION CABINS

Sit on your gated front porch or chuck the ball as far as you can across acres of meadows. Just five minutes from shopping dining and the Sierra Nevada brewery, our Mills River location features 8 cozy, comfy and fully equipped cabins with private yards and hot tubs. It’s the perfect place to relax and have fun with your best friends!

BREVARD  AREA VACATION COTTAGES

In true Barkwells style, this property has all the amenities of the original Mills River property; fenced perimeter, electronic gates, meadows for running and ponds for swimming. Just 15 minutes from Dupont State Forest and Pisgah National Forest, enjoy one of our two luxurious cottages that offer you expansive meadow and mountain views, a private hot tub, a fenced yard with dog door and the relaxing sound of water falling into the ponds outside your door.  The extra added attraction here is miniature donkeys! (Fully fenced, of course.)

The Dog Lovers’ NC Vacation Retreat


Perhaps one of the best places on the planet to take your four-legged companion is outside of Asheville, where the all-cottage resort Barkwells was built with dogs in mind. Your pup can roam freely from his own door in each of the property’s eight one- and two-bedroom cabins, which have gated porches and fenced-in yards. Acres of grass, a pond stocked with fish, and farm animals like chickens and goats, will keep him (and all of his new friends) entertained for days.
