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!

Awesome vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The Powell Farm is an excellent choice for a large family vacation. Clean, great location, big, lots of room, and the on site swimming pool can't be beat.

The Perfect Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property several times and every time it is wonderful. It is truly a home away from home! The house is very roomy and comfortable! It has everything... nice comfy beds, great sun room for sitting and watching tv, the pool is wonderful, the view is awesome, it is quiet and serene! We saw 9 turkey's in the pasture behind the house, each morning! The smokey view of the mountains early in the morning is a site to see... The owners are a joy to deal with and they make sure that your stay is wonderful! We will come back as long as they rent this property out. Thanks for all you do!!

Wow! What a great family and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with everything! Amy was super and her parents were so nice! Great family willing to open her childhood home! It was very clean and the view was great! The kids loved the pool. It was great to be able to stay on our own place and then go into town, which was only about 20 miles away! Our kids loved the whole trip! Thank you Amy for a great week! We will be back!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

With our entire family including children, this was the perfect house for us. The pool and sunroom made this house a great family accommodation and location. It was close to National Park and hiking. The setting was beautiful, the owners very friendly and helpful, and the house made for a wonderful getaway week together as a family.

Wonderful family house to relax and enjoy time by the pool with the granddaughters!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this property off and on for over 20 years. This is where my grandkids think of when we plan vacation. Plenty of rooms; big kitchen - always enjoy the gathering room where we can all get together to eat or play some games. And love the pool!! Wouldn't stay anywhere else in and around Gatlinburg!

Quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented the house because of the extremely close proximity to the venue where my son was having his wedding. We are so glad we did! The view is great and the house was clean and spacious. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from the noise of the city.
