Have an elevated stay at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort, the luxurious, year-round retreat dreamed up by Ms. Parton herself. While the resort and nearby country-music mecca are known for all things Parton, DreamMore is just as dreamy in the off-season, when Dollywood shuts down, and it’s all about the natural beauty and world-class recreation of the Smokies. You can spend your days touring Pigeon Forge’s mountains and visiting Bavarian-style Gatlinburg. When you’re not taking the town or the mountains, let the resort show you its unique brand of Southern hospitality.
Loaded with Southern charm and rustic details (think country-inspired
artwork and burlap fabrics), the rooms and suites invite you to make a cup of coffee and make yourself at home. Take a dip in the indoor pool, sample the delicious comfort food that’s served family-style at Song & Hearth, pick a rejuvenating massage from the spa’s sparkly pink menu, or relax over a fire pit for some storytelling. Or, do it all. At a resort so abundant in activities, inside and out, you’re always invited to change your direction.
In the Area
From your Smoky Mountains base, you can explore surrounding Pigeon Forge, a popular destination of dinner shows, unique shops, outlet malls and activities galore. Nearby Gatlinburg is a quaint Bavarian-inspired town in the Smokies that’s also worth a visit, with outdoor adventure, museums, shops and dining of its own.
How to Get There
I surprised my mom with a 2 night stay May 17-19,2018 this is a gorgeous place with everything done right! We had a queen double on the 3rd floor. When we arrived early our room was ready and all I had to do was drive up and the bellhop I think that's what you call them unloaded the car asked for my room number and said he would deliver our things asap and it was a courtesy of the resort. We got on the trolley and went to the park.
That night we rested and the beds are so comfortable we sleep great both nights! Every evening from 4-6 they serve Dolly's pink lemonade! The pool area was super nice,
If you want a beautiful place to stay that is close to everything but yet not all the noise and traffic, this is your place. It is absolutely breathtaking and the staff is about the friendliest I have ever encountered. The pool was probably my granddaughters favorite part of the hotel. The rooms are very clean, the outside area is very clean and well kept. I can't think of anything negative to say about this resort.
A very safe and clean atmosphere with exceptional staff the food is fresh and delicious also Dollywood theme park is Incredibly clean the people who visit are very nice The live entertainment is toetapping hand slapping good fun and must to do
The place exudes warmth and friendliness. The rooms are extremely clean and meticulously kept. The food at the buffet is some of the best you’ll ever have. We stayed three nights and loved every minute of our visit.
I loved the DreamMore! People were impossibly friendly and the property is really pretty. I enjoyed having a drink in the rocking chairs overlooking the grounds, and loved making s'mores around the fire. The sad part is we were only there for one night-- so we missed the random crafts and games that happen there. There was a movie in the barn for kids, which was precious. The pool was awesome. I saw many senior citizens and many children and everyone in between. It seemed like a great place to have a little family vacation.
If you're going to the park, there is a convenient and cute shuttle that takes you there. You get to access a special entrance. TRUST ME this is a benefit. We ended up having to go to the main entrance because we were on the guest list, and it took ages to get in. You also get a fast pass which made the day 100% better. I'd say it's almost worth staying there just for those two benefits.
We didn't try the food but saw that they take pizza orders for particular times so that you can order in advance and have the food ready whenever it's dinner time later in the day. That is fantastic for cranky kids who are exhausted from walking around the park all day:)
Our room was really pretty!
