Get excited Dolly Parton fans ... because if you're in need of a holiday after working "9 to 5" you can now stay in the country music queen's personal tour bus!

The 'Jolene' singer has turned her long-time tour bus into an overnight rental filled with jewel-toned fabrics, sparkly guitars, towering heels and hand-painted murals.

Known as Suite 1986, the 45-foot motorhome sleeps two people and is currently parked at the Dollywood DreamMore Resort & Spa in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

Featuring a full-size refrigerator, bathtub, show wardrobe and wig cabinet, the bus provided Parton with a personal sanctuary for the past 15 years and is where she wrote albums such as Backwoods Barbie and 9 to 5 the Musical.

 

"I decided to retire it because I wasn't touring that much anymore and it just was sitting there, and I thought this could be put to really good use," Parton said about the tour bus, which she often referred to as her "Gypsy Wagon."

But a stay in the 76-year-old singer's bus doesn't come cheap ...

Prices for a two-night visit start at $10,000, with a portion of the profits being donated to The Dollywood Foundation, a book gifting program that mails high-quality reads to more than a million children around the world each month.

If you're able to afford the hire, however, you will get to enjoy the same couch, kitchen, dining table and tub used by Parton, who created the tour bus to be a home-away-from-home because of her dislike of flying.
