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!

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

Beautiful views great accomodations super nice owners
We loved our stay! Beautiful property, comfy beds plenty of seating stocked kitchen owners were super nice (they live next door, but didn't intrude on our stay) can't wait to visit again!
Amber, so glad you enjoyed your stay! Hope you and your family will return. So glad you got to experience the "glitter" (frost) on the grass the morning you checked out.
The house was very clean upon arrival which was very comforting!! The view from the back deck is stunning. It is located out of the hustle of Pigeon's Forge and Gatlinburg which was perfect for our vacation to visit the Smokey Mountains. We experienced no problems staying here. The owners were a joy to work with and responded quickly to any questions we had. We enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in this area. We hope to be able to rent again next year.
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.
