Singer, songwriter, philanthropist — it seems like there’s nothing Dolly Parton can’t do. The same can be said of her success with her theme park, Dollywood, and resort, DreamMore Resort and Spa. Now the singer has further expanded her hospitality empire with the opening of her latest hotel, Heartsong Lodge and Resort.
A longtime Dolly fan, I jumped at the chance to stay at the brand-new resort just two weeks after opening. I couldn’t wait to experience the hotel’s live music, nightly singalongs, festive decorations, and, of course, visit the park during its annual Smoky Mountain Christmas festival. After my stay at Heartsong Lodge, like seemingly everyone else who travels these parts, I left believing there’s nothing Dolly can’t do.
