Dollywood lovers now have a Parton-themed palace to rest their sleep heads.

DreamMore, Dolly Parton’s new resort located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, officially opens today. The 100-acre resort, which boasts of a 300 room hotel designed for families, is named for the singer’s 2012 self-help guidebook.

Music lovers can enjoy the many Dolly-themed relics prominently displayed throughout the resort, including instruments she’s used and old album covers. The signature drink they serve is pink lemonade, a nod to the owner’s favorite color.  Even the elevators are adorned with so called “Dollyism”—phrases like, “If you want a rainbow you have to put up with the rain."

DreamMore features two dining options including a full service restaurant and a quick service eater. A family style dinner for four starts at just $55.  Those who stay at the resort get free transportation to neighboring Dollywood and Dollywood Splash Country theme parks and special guest privileges like early weekend entry and fast passes to popular attractions.

Room rates start at $179 a night and there are multi-generational rooms available with options like bunk beds for kids.
