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!

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!
Very nice property.
Beautiful cabin with an amazing view
Everything was as described. We had an amazing stay. No cell service about 20 mins before getting there and it’s spotty (at best) once there. Otherwise, all was perfect and we’ll definitely stay again!
Heaven in the Hills
This property was gorgeous, and just what we were looking for. We have two small children so the downstairs was a perfect setup for us. There is lots to do on the mountain (creek, playground, paddle boat, canoes, pool, etc) and downtown Boone was just a 20 minute drive. We loved eating dinner while the sun set over the mountains. You won’t find a better view then the one this property offers. Thank you Terry for sharing your home with us.
Our retreat from Hurricane Dorian
This place is exactly what we were looking for. Perfectly set in the mountains, very homey feel.
Labor Day Weekend Getaway
We had a great stay for the long weekend and all was as advertised. The house was well suited for our family of 7, the trails and activities in the neighborhood were nice, and the screen porch to watch hummingbirds and the hot tub to watch stars were lovely. We took our own food so we didn’t have to leave as it is a bit of a drive out but it was very peaceful and lovely. The views are amazing.
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.'
