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
The accomodations here are beautiful and I can't say enough about how beautiful the property is! And that breakfast is the very best in town. The "Dolly" touches are fun and the staff is very helpful. Also, a GREAT location. Highly recommended!
Everything was very clean and neat. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The only complaint that we had involved the lack of dining options on the property. However there were plenty of options to choose from in the area.
We have been to Pigeon Forge many times but this was our first stay at Dolly's Dream more resort. The resort was just beautiful, and the staff was well trained and efficient in their jobs. We had asked for 2 rooms, adjoining if possible, and that was what we got. The outside pool was not open, and we missed the opening of Dollywood by a week, but we knew that was the case when we planned our trip. The only problem we encountered was a stopped up toilet in one of our rooms, and it was addressed quickly after a call to the desk. We loved the "homey" feeling of the lobby areas, and we even enjoyed a wonderful singer that entertained in the lobby downstairs. The DM pantry was a little expensive, but offered a variety of choices. We had the breakfast buffet at the Song and Hearth restaurant located downstairs. This was the best breakfast buffet I have ever experienced by far! The beds were comfortable and the view from our rooms overlooking the pool, barn, and play area were amazing. You could hear some talking/walking down the hallways, but it didn't really bother us. We also kept hearing a noise as if a door was opening closely, but we discovered we had to push our door closed when we entered or it would not close all the way and continue to make that sound. My husband enjoyed the weight room downstairs, and I loved walking around the grounds. My college aged children also enjoyed the amenities and we had a very relaxing visit. Just be prepared to spend some money!
This property IMO has world-class potential. It's just on the verge. We had a great stay here on the night of March 9, 2019. Pam checked us in and is herself, in fact, world class. She is the kind of front desk person who would fit in at any great hotel in the world. Most of the employees here are just like her. The bellmen come to mind. All great guys. We had a nice room on the 5th floor overlooking the pool. At night, we got to hear Logan Ashley, who has one of the purest voices in the world. I've heard she will be moving to Nashville, having just signed a record deal. Best of luck to her. But you can be assured that any person playing live music in this hotel will be good. The public areas of this hotel are so inviting. We love the DM Pantry here, which features the famous cinnamon bread from Dollywood. All the baked goods we've had here are top notch.
Hate it that we missed the opening of the park by a week. But we'll be back. Five stars.
This place is fantastic! Not only is it beautiful and welcoming from the moment you first drive in but the staff greet you so warmly. I would expect nothing less from Dolly but this place is first class all the way!! It is a very homey place especially since it is so large. I love the decorations and furniture throughout the hotel and the rooms are super clean. The breakfast buffet was amazing. It was so nice to see families playing checkers and cards by the fire.
I will be back!!
