'The Powell House' was built in 1885 by Civil War General Powell.

The perfect location to make priceless family memories.A total renovation was completed in spring of 2012 to preserve the integrity of the original farmhouse while adding additional rooms to take full advantage of the surrounding mountains. Each of the three large porches offer their own spectacular view. Evenings on the thirty foot front porch hosts a nightly summer light show by resident fire flies that take any adult back to childhood!
