The bond between humans and animals stretches back many millennia – the two species had to interact, both in the utilitarian and antagonistic sense. They competed for terrain and sustenance.

But somewhere along the line a different bond was formed – animals became companions; animals, especially in the Americas, became pets. And a new, unusual and valuable bond was formed.

We at The Park on Main® appreciate and value this relationship. In fact, we want to cherish and nurture it, affording our guests who share this vision the opportunity to foster that bond.

The relationship between owner and pet deserves attention; it deserves our dedication to providing superior amenities that accommodate both sets of needs. That’s what makes us, at The Park on Main®, unique. We understand the important role your pets play in your life.

The Park on Main Offers Pet Friendly Environment and Activities

While many in the industries of recreation and relaxation may ignore or neglect this vital element of the human condition, we don’t.

In a phrase, we tell our guests: Bring your pets. They are as welcome at The Park on Main® as you are. We take this invitation seriously. We more than just welcome your pets, we make accommodations for them as well.

Highlands, North Carolina – home of The Park on Main® – is the ideal atmosphere for both pet and owner. You will enjoy your time at The Park on Main, and so will your pet. And if Halo or Sophie could say thank you, we’re absolutely sure they would.

We would be remiss in letting you know, by the way, that when you do visit us, one Mr. Pickles is more than happy to provide you with a warm greeting at the door. As an esteemed member of The Park on Main® staff, Mr. Pickles exemplifies the unique form of hospitality we offer our guests and often mingles with both pets and humans during special occasions. Mr. Pickles is a handsome black Scottish Terrier and serves nobly – most of the time – as our illustrious mascot.

Here are some activities both pooch and person can enjoy together in Highlands, North Carolina:

Your pet would be pleased to take a walk to the Highlands Dog Park at Foreman Road and Fourth Street. The park is fully fenced with separate areas for small, skittish or elderly dogs. The park base is made of mulch and the park has a covered area. Water is also available for thirsty pets. Email dogparkhighlands@dogparkhighlands.com.

The Blue Ridge Railroad Historical Trail at Mountain Rest, South Carolina is 12 miles from Highlands. Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, a national nonprofit organization, oversees the Mountain Rest site. Your pet will love dashing and exploring this rustic expanse of old railroad lines converted into recreational sites.

The Rabun County Park is 17 miles away in Clayton, Georgia on Rabun County Park Road. For information call (706) 782-4600 or info@rabuncountyrecreation.com. The park has a recreation center, baseball field and a pond.

Tallulah Falls Rail-Trail in Lakemont, Georgia is 20 miles away. It is also part of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy.

When you do make reservations, let us know you’re bringing along companions – both human and nonhuman. We’ll be able to help you. You can learn more about our pet policies and keep track the antics of Mr. Pickles on Twitter @MrPicklesOnMain.
