Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa is so much more than just the “Dollywood Hotel.” Sure, by staying there you get great Dollywood perks like door-to-door trolley service, TimeSaver passes, early entry to the parks on Saturdays and free package delivery to your room. And, let me tell you—those are all amazing amenities—but Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa is so much more than those perks associated with Dollywood and Dollywood’s Splash Country. It is a true resort in every sense of the word and is a wonderful place to stay, even if Dollywood is closed! Here are some of the other incredible amenities you shouldn’t overlook:
Swimming Year-Round: The Swimming Hole is the outdoor pool area. It includes lovely landscaping, a hot tub, a zero-depth entry and an interactive splash pad. The pool is heated, but does close when the temperatures drop. The hot tub is open year-round.
The Garden House is an indoor, heated pool. The walls are glass, so you can potentially see snow outside and be swimming inside. Like the outdoor pool, it offers beautiful mountain views, tons of fun, award-winning lifeguards and life jackets for less experienced swimmers.
Beautiful Spots to Sit and Explore: There are inviting porches with lines of rocking chairs all over the resort. These are great places to relax and take in the views of the mountains surrounding Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa.
There is also a lovely garden to stroll through with places to sit and enjoy your surroundings.
And don’t forget to check out the barn! This beautiful structure tucked away behind the swimming pool is the perfect spot to kick up your feet and relax around a gas fire pit.
Delicious Food and Beverages: There are multiple places to fill your belly at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa. Song & Hearth: A Southern Eatery is a buffet-style restaurant located on the ground floor. Open for breakfast, dinner and Sunday Brunch, you do not want to leave without eating here. The food is going to be one of your favorite memories!
The Lounge is also located on the first floor and offers a bar and an all-day dining menu that can be eaten inside or out on the porch.
Poolside Dining makes it easy for you to never have to leave the outdoor pool! Food and drinks can be ordered from your chair!
The resort’s DM Pantry offers coffee (including Starbucks), baked goods, hot sandwiches/wraps and grab and go items.

The spa offers monthly specials that are open to resort guests and the public. Don’t forget to stop by the Spa store to check out the amazing inventory of FarmHouse Fresh body products and more!
