The queen of country's resort is nestled near the Great Smoky Mountains, a place that she says nourished her soul and replenished her spirit.

Lined with endless details of the star, the resort boasts lots of perks for adults and kids alike.

Children get their own special space when staying at the grand hotel, complete with bunk beds. The little ones an also enjoy activities like story time, s'mores by the campfire and outdoor movie nights. Plus, you're just a few minutes away from Dollywood and the resort offers a shuttle service!

The entire family can cool off in multiple pools, both outside and inside. The outdoor pool is joined by a splash pad complete with flowers.

And it wouldn't be a Dollywood resort without butterflies. The beautiful creatures can be seen in nearly every inch of the hotel, from the water fountain guests are greeted with when driving up to check in, to the carpets and even etched on mirrors. Dolly loves her butterflies.

Little details make the resort even more special, like postcards of Dolly and the resort ready for writing near the bedside table and a caricature artist in the main lobby.

Sticking with the home-grown country theme, guests can enjoy live music at the bottom of a grand staircase and homey accents that remind you that you're nestled in the mountains.

Guests can also enjoy a relaxing day at Dolly's spa, which offers massages, manicures, pedicures and more.

Diners can get what they're looking for right at the resort in the "Song & Hearth" restaurant, where everyone is treated like family.
