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 East

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!

Family fall break

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at the Powell farm. The views are amazing . Every morning we watched the sun rise while drinking coffee in the big sunroom. The location makes it convenient to travel around. The Powell family is extremely kind and accommodating. Our family will definitely reconnect here again.

Lovely Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic mountain getaway! Everything was immaculate and Amy was such a welcoming host. Perfect view of rolling Tennessee hills and we were lucky enough to have clear nights with thousands of stars. We'd love to stay again!

Beautiful! The pictures don't do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 nights that ended way too soon! This place is a dream come true! Plenty enough room for my entire bunch, 7 adults and 3 kids. The house itself was spotless and well furnished. I had brought extra paper towels, trash bags, all that kind of stuff but it was not needed. Everything and I do mean everything was provided. The kitchen was well stocked and spacious enough for 5 of us to prepare, cook and clean up all at the same time. . . no bumping into each other. We never ate in shifts as the sunroom had a table we could all sit at together. We sat by the pool watching the deer eat apples in the yard, beautiful sight. The pool itself was immaculate, my grandkids spent every waking hour in it. The view from the pool is breath taking and in less than 10 minutes we were Smokies for a small hike and to see some waterfalls. What can I say except spectacular. My sons found a nearby golf course that they said was very, very nice. I have to take their word on that as I do not golf but I know if they didn't like it they would have said so. Everyone in my party agreed that we should come back next year. We always gather together once a year and now we've found a place to return to. My only wish is there would have been some chairs or a swing in the front yard. We all played croquet and it would have been nice to have something for those not playing to sit on. Other than that this was the next best thing to Heaven. We will return!

Owner's Response: Barbara, we are so glad your family enjoyed your stay, and we hope that Powell Farm is your new family favorite! Normally there are 8 chairs in the basement for outdoor use, but we had borrowed them for our son's engagement party next door! Hope to see you next year on Labor Day.
