Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, 9 Sleeps
About Terry Thompkins
My name is Terry and my husband, Jeff and I live in Wilmington, NC. I grew up in upstate New York but moved to Raleigh and then to Wilmington when I was younger. We first went to Powder Horn Mountain when our kids were about 7 and 10 and had the best family vacation we have ever had. We loved getting out in the woods, hikng, fishing, animal watching and just getting back to pure family time. We returned every summer and then had the opportunity to buy a lot and build our own dream cabin. How lucky and blessed we are! We have tried to make this cabin a cozy retreat for all who come to find peace and re-connect with nature and your loved ones.
Terry Thompkins purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why Terry Thompkins chose Deep Gap
We built our dream cabin on the most beautiful spot on our mountain. The views from our deck can rival any others around!
What makes this Cabin unique
You can make your stay as busy or lazy as you wish! Tackle the trails on our mountain or sit back in the hammock and read a good book. Then after dinner a long soak in the hot tub with the stars shinning above is heavenly!

We throughly enjoyed Heaven in the Hills. The property was cleaned and well stocked. The hot tub was great and the views were magnificent.
Even though the Cabin is located within a community. We felt like we were the only ones there! The cabin was perfect and the Hot Tub was our favorite part. I do wish we had known that all the trails are closed during deer hunting season. Other than that, our stay was perfect!
Great secluded cabin up in the mountains. Not too remote, but just enough to feel like we had some space to breathe and unwind without interruption.
The views from the back decks were phenomenal. The hot tub was a great way to hang out on the deck in the cold and enjoy the view.
The cabin was clean and had plenty of amenities. There is no WiFi, which actually helped us enjoy each other’s company more. We had a shaky 1-bar LTE connection that would go in and out, but it was enough for basic google searches and stuff like that. Better connection outside and without cloud cover.
Terry was wonderful and provided us all the info we needed. We didn’t run into any issues that required a phone call or anything.
We went night skiing at Appalachian Ski Mountain which was a lot of fun. Boone is about 45 minutes away and they have all the stores and entertainment you could ask for. We walked around downtown Boone and had a blast.
Overall, exactly what we were looking for and we wish we could’ve stayed longer!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our cabin "Heaven in the Hills"! Just to clear up our location it is a 35 minute drive to Appalachian Ski resort and Sugar is a little farther at 45 minutes. We put the crockpot on and go ski for the day or night and come back to a cozy cabin for dinner and a hot tub soak. Boone is about 13 miles from our cabin and then ASU and downtown Boone 2 more miles. Downtown Boone is so much fun with the shopping, restaurants, and don't forget the Rooftop Bar - The Horton Hotel -our new discovery! Hope you all come stay and play with us again!
Loved our stay! Close enough to get to Boone, sugar and Yadkin!
Heaven in the Hills is True to its Name!
The views were amazing! There were no other cabins in sight. The cabin was well stocked with plenty of extra blankets, towels, bath clothes, etc. I have never stayed in another cabin with a kitchen more well stocked that this one. It had everything we ever needed for cooking. There was plenty of gas for the grill and firepit. When you rent this cabin you aren't just renting the cabin, you are renting the whole community because you have access to two ponds, a club house with a game room, hiking trails, and picnic areas. Our experience was all around amazing!
3 sisters getaway
We enjoyed our stay at heaven in the hills! It is a beautiful cabin with absolutely gorgeous views. The owners were very generous and the cabin was fully stocked. Everything worked perfectly. The area is a perfect fall mountain getaway! Thank you for sharing your cabin with us!
If you do want to go out for the day there are many wonderful places
to explore. Boone, Banner Elk, Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain,
Tweetsie Railroad, Linville Falls, Linville Caverns and Mast General
Store are just some of the great places to visit. There is also
Horseback Riding, Kayaking, Fly Fishing, and of course, Skiing in
the winter and Golfing in the summer. Most of these activities are
just a short 20-45 minute beautiful country drive from the house.
Another option - Take a relaxing drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway
with its breathtaking views - What a wonderful way to spend the
day! The Parkway entrance is located minutes from Powder Horn
Whatever the season, there is always something to do at 'Heaven in
A Few words from our guests!
'Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We came
here to celebrate our 10th anniversary and we enjoyed this trip more than our honeymoon! Everything was perfect and beyond our
expectations. We are planning on a return trip with family. Two nights is just not enough!'
'The home and view exceeded our expectations! We saw too many deer to
count and we enjoyed the hot tub at night after long days of hiking and rafting. The mountain itself had wonderful hiking!
Although we went out for dinner most nights, next time we will plan to
eat in more often. The ammenities were great and the home was so very clean. Thank you for a wonderful vacation! We will surly be back!'
'This place is truly a slice of heaven. Thank you for a wonderful vacation spot! We'll be back!'
'We had a wonderful week in your home. The cabin is very well stocked
and truly beautiful. The view was lovely. We were very impressed with all that Powder Horn has to offer. We enjoyed hiking, swimming, fishing and watching all the wildlife! We put corn out for the deer and had them eating
at the foot of the hill. We will be back.'
'Had a great time in this beautiful mountain home! We all enjoyed the
ambiance, the environment, the amenities and comfort. Hope to return in a different season to see the changes. Thanks so much.'
'What an amazing view! This is the 4th house on Powderhorn that we
have spent some vacation and by far the best! Your house is so beautiful and breath-taking. Thanks for making this trip to the mountains so well worth it. We would love to come back with family to show them what they have
missed! Thank you for sharing!'
'Hiking on Grandfather Mountain - the perfect trail
Shopping in Blowing Rock - the perfect store
Biking down the Virginia Creeper trail - the perfect ride
Our four days on Powder Horn - the perfect honeymoon!
Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful home.'
I hardly know where to begin as it seems words are inadequate to
express my graditude to you and your family.
We chose your cabin in Deep Gap, NC for one of our two family
vacations... We usually go to the beach as my family has always gone to Myrtle and we got in a rut. I decided to do something different.
Terry your home on Powder Horn Mountain is beautiful, peaceful, and
welcoming. From the moment we walked in we felt we were home. We have done a lot of private rentals but truly this was the BEST!
I found myself at one point standing on the deck with tears in my eyes
as I reflected on the fact this was the most relaxed I have felt in a very long time. All your little touches and extra efforts make people want to not only nestle in but treat it like home.
Amazing, you have a gift.
OK. I could go on and on but please allow me to say again .... Thank
you! It was wonderful and we are so looking forward to going back. It is so gracious of you to share such a wonderful place with
others and I wanted to take the time to tell you.'
