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
My mom and I stayed here and visited Dollywood. We could provide our check in details to buy our Dollywood tickets that included a “Time Saver” pass and a bus to and from the park. The hotel is enormous and beautiful. Our room was clear at the end of the hall. If walking a distance is too much, ask for a room near the elevators. The pantry was open when we returned from the park so we could grab a quick bite. Tip: Order cinnamon bread the night before so they don’t run out.
Our room was so cold, and so was our check in clerk. We turned our heat up... and it was blowing warm air...but it was still really cold. Our bathroom floor was tiled and it was pretty but we couldn’t walk on without throwing towels down it was freezing.
Outside the hotel and the lobby is beautiful, rooms are average looking. Nothing special.
We Have been going to the Smokies and Pigeon Forge since The 70 s. We have stayed in cabins hotels timeshare rooms and we just loved Dollys DreamMore. Everything was so convenient from comfort in your room to place to set all aroound the resort to make you have that at home feeling. Loved IT...
