When looking for a scenic and adventurous pet friendly hotel on the Outer Banks, you need look no further than the classic Sea Ranch Resort.  Since 1963 the Sea Ranch has been a premier Outer Banks destination for the whole family, and these days the term “family” isn’t just relegated to the two-legged variety.  Your dog is a beloved family member, so, why should they miss out on all the fun?

pet friendly hotel You and your pet can experience the wonder of the Outer Banks together! Set in historic Kill Devil Hills, the Sea Ranch is one of the few remaining hotels that offer pet friendly accommodations, and is located in the hub of all the major Outer Banks attractions. The Wright Brothers Memorial, the sand dunes at Jockey’s Ridge, the quiet tranquility of Nags Head Woods are all just a short drive away, and don’t forget the miles and miles of beautiful sandy beaches right at your doorstep!

Of course, it is good to know the local rules and regulations about pet friendly beaches and parks if you want to give your four-footed companions a chance to enjoy the open air.  Most State and National Parks allow pets on the premises, with proper clean-up and leashes of course.  Each township on the Outer Banks has its own preferences and leash laws, and it is best to familiarize yourself with these before setting out on your destination of the day.

Despite your attachment to your fuzzy loved ones, some locations are very species specific about who can visit.  No one, not even your pet, wants to be closed up in a hotel room on their vacation, and in those instances a good pet friendly resort is the answer.  While you see the sights and ride the rides, your pet can get pampered and preened in places such as the Ocean Sands K-9 Resort.  Ocean Sands offers day stays, or by the hour, and will keep your furry family entertained with games and play time while take in the local grandeur.

So, when planning your Outer Banks vacation, don’t forget to include your fuzzy friends as well!  After all, they’re part of the family, too!
