PETS: 2 Pets are welcome. Pets require a $25.00 non-refundable cleaning fee. Renter is responsible for any additional cleaning fees and loss of revenue due to damage caused by pets, this includes fleas. Ober Baden is located very near the park boundary so owners should take care to keep pets away from wildlife. From the evening to the early mornings bears, turkey, squirrels, coyotes, bobcats, raccoons, and foxes are commonly seen in this area.

Winter Weather Warning: The elevation at Ober Baden is nearly the same as the lodge at nearby Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort.
