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!

Enjoyed the cabin on Powder Horn Mountain
The cabin was clean and cozy! The weather was so hot and we weren’t expecting the heat in the mountains, but overall, our stay was great.
I hated to leave. This mountain get away was better than I even imagined from the beautiful pictures. The view of the mountains from the treehouse deck and treehouse screened in porch were so beautiful. Watching the weather change the look of the mountains, almost by the minute, was mesmerizing. The hot tub on the deck was so relaxing and a great place to star gaze. My grandson saw his first shooting star from that vantage point. We played games every night on the screened in porch, which was kept cool by the ceiling fan. All of the beds were very comfortable and each bedroom had it's own full bathroom, which was so convenient. If you want to get away from it all and just relax, enjoy the views, do some hiking or do nothing, this is the place for you. I could've done nothing but look at the mountain view all day long. The pool at the clubhouse was wonderful too. We would love to return some day. Thank you Terry for your prompt responses to my couple of questions. You have a beautiful place. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven in the hills with us.

Beautiful mountain view
It was an amazing experience loved the cabin it’s located perfectly to admire such beautiful views I loved waking up and enjoying my coffee on the deck facing the Mountain View, property was well kept and we didn’t have any issues, we actually talked about going back in a few months and would love to stay in the same cabin,
Amazing place with amazing views. Clean and perfect spot for weekend with kids
More Home than Rental
A well done cabin that feels more like a home than a rental. Quality construction (cabin stairs that don’t squeak!), lots of cooking tools, TVs in every bedroom. Owner is communicative and worked out a few special details we needed on the reservation. One of the best located rentals in this gated community (high up, great long distance views, quiet).
Truly Heaven on the hills!
We had a wonderful stay at this cabin. The layout was perfect, it was incredibly clean and we found we there was so much to do on the mountain that we didn't have to leave at all during our stay. Enjoyed listening to the wild turkeys from the porch, the hot tub, and enjoying the swimming hole a short drive from the cabin. Would definitely rent again. A wonderful spot!
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

at the foot of the hill. We will be back.'

ambiance, the environment, the amenities and comfort. Hope to return in a different season to see the changes. Thanks so much.'

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.'
