Amusement Parks: Dollywood Signs Marketing Alliance with Starr Crest Resort


Dollywood has entered into an agreement with Starr Crest Resort located in Sevierville to immediately feature and promote the company’s cabins as a convenient lodging option for Dollywood guests on  

“With more than four million visitors a year, Dollywood is the leading tourism destination in Tennessee.  We’re in the unique position to help drive more visitors to the area and entice them to stay overnight in convenient, family-friendly cabins, ” said Ken Bell, president of Dollywood.  “This alliance builds upon the current hotel and motel lodging options Dollywood already features via our online vacation packages. We are starting with the more than 100 cabins within the Starr Crest Resort portfolio, and expect to add more choices soon.”  

Located just two miles from Dollywood and Dollywood’s Splash Country, the Starr Crest Resort features picturesque views of the famed Great Smoky Mountains.  The resort is six miles from Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  The resort features log cabins in a mountain setting, an onsite swimming pool, a children’s playground, city water and wide paved roads for easy access.  Cabins range from one to eight bedrooms accommodating from one to 25 guests.  Most rentals offer preferred amenities including pool tables, hot tubs and fireplaces. 

Dollywood is a 150-acre family adventure park in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. Pigeon Forge, along with nearby Gatlinburg, were recently selected by Southern Living readers as the number one place for a weekend getaway.  Open nine months a year (March 28, 2009-Jan. 2, 2010), Dollywood offers more than 40 rides and attractions; award winning live entertainment featuring country, bluegrass, gospel and mountain music; and a dozen crafters authentic to the East Tennessee region.
