About Amy Higdon
Our home is built on property that has been in Velda's family since 1879. Her grandparents, Joseph and Sarah Jane Flynn, built the first structure on the property and raised their family on this farm. Sampson Flynn, Velda's father, was born on the farm in 1902. He married Bonnie Cagle in 1920 and their family eventually settled in the gray block home that sits next door to our home. Velda and Marshall had this home moved from along Little River in Walland, Tennessee to the current location in 1965. There have been several additions to the home over the years, including the pool and sunroom. Velda and Marshall raised their family, son David and daughter Amy, in this home until they moved their residence next door in 1996 They remodeled the block house of Velda's parents after their passing. Amy's family lives on the farm behind the rental. Their great-grandchildren are the 6th generation to have lived on the family property.
Amy Higdon purchased this Farmhouse in 1965
Why Amy Higdon chose Blount County
Powell Farm Rental has been in the nightly rental business since 1996. We have guests who will be returning for their 20th summer. Our home is large enough to have plenty of beds and room to spread out. The sunroom provides gorgeous mountain views even in the winter. Our guests have enjoyed various local activities, and one family returns each Fall for an annual Tennessee football game. We are 45 minutes from Dollywood and other Pigeon Forge attractions.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Powell Farm is uniquely located near Knoxville and Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge but far enough away to avoid traffic and crowds. We are also located near 2 TVA lakes, Chilhowee (20 miles away) and Tellico (appox. 35 miles away). There is parking available for boats on our property. Also, located on this family property is Sampson's Hollow, a lovely wedding/event facility owned and operated by Velda's nephew and his family. Our home is often rented by those attending events at Sampson's Hollow. Our home is located next door to Blackerry Farm, a nationally known and recognized country inn. Enjoy similar views at a fraction of the cost!

Clean, Fun, Functional, and Friendly!!!
We had a graduation dinner and family get together at the house.
This house had EVERYTHING needed in the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms.
Very clean and organized.
The pool and yard were fun and there is a nice creek down at the end of the long driveway!
Amy is super responsive and a pleasure to work with on the business details.
Jim, thanks for your kind words. We’d love to have your family come stay with us again. Congratulations to your daughter in her graduation.
Wonderful family vacation rental
We have stayed the farm several times and our grandchildren love being there. The house has plenty of room for all of us and the pool is wonderful!
So glad your family enjoyed your stay. We hope you will return soon!
Awesome location and great property!
This is a very scenic and private location. Our group enjoyed the house and it's amenities as a group but the house was also able to allow each couple enough privacy to escape when needed. The pool and awesome sitting room provided excellent meeting areas to relax and plan for the days adventures. We had 7 motorcycles in our group and the carport accommodated them all very well. Our group also represented 5 different families and they all indicated they would like to return to this location for family vacations. Everyone's feedback was that this property added greatly to their trip and that they will remember this trip forever.
The owners were very informative from my first contact and quite a pleasure to deal with as well as being very very knowledgeable of the surrounding area. We will not hesitate to seek out this property the next time we visit!
Vince, we welcome your group back anytime. So glad that our home was such a good fit for your party.
Best Vacation May 9-May 15 2018

Best experience all around
Could not have asked for a smoother experience booking this gorgeous property for all the groomsman that partook in our wedding at Sampson's Hollow. The view from the sunroom was something to see and awesome to wake up to. Amy was beyond helpful and super sweet to work with in addition which made for a relaxing stay as well! I would stay here again and again if ever in the area in the future and would absolutely recommend this property to anyone else looking for a beautiful and relaxing experience in the Walland area. Thank you so much Amy
