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 Tennessee

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!

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!

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.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Good location. Lots of room! Great pool. Quiet and peaceful. We hope to return next year. My only suggestion would be to add a restroom in the basement for the kids to change after being in the pool.

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family absolutely LOVED staying at the Powell Farmhouse! The home was very spacious, the sunroom was huge but very cozy at the same time, the kitchen was very well laid out, the extra room in the basement worked out great, the laundry area worked out perfectly, the beds were comfy, the bathrooms worked great for our group, the pool and deck was AWESOME and enjoyed by our entire group and the view was amazing! I loved the Godly plaques and bibles throughout the home as well! We had such an awesome time it was hard to leave...it was like leaving our own home! The owners and manager are wonderful to work with as well and are so sweet! Overall, this is by far the best vacation experience I've ever had! Our kids (young married couples) raced through the house picking out their rooms too which was fun to watch in itself... My husband and I, of course, said the master bedroom was off limits as that was spoken for! Oh and there are multiple televisions with dvd players which makes it great when you can't agree on a movie. :) I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this place to EVERYONE!
