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 Walland
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.

Lots of room, beautiful view, beds comfy, kitchen nicely furnished, could improve the WiFi.
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!
We really enjoyed our trip to Walland TN. The house was spacious providing plenty of room for our party of 10. My family especially enjoyed watching the Smoky Mountains as the put on an excellent show. The sun danced creating magnificent shadows. On other days the clouds kissed the mountains.
The location is private ..but within 45 minutes we were at Dolly Wood.
We also viewed wild turkeys and deer in the back yard.
We are located 15 minutes from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and 5 minutes from the Foothills Parkway. Townsend is known as the 'Peaceful Side of the Smokies', avoiding the traffic and crowds of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.
