outside of Boone in the gated community of Powder Horn

Mountain. 'Heaven in the Hills' is a 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath cabin

with the BEST view on the mountain! It offers 2 large decks, a

screen porch and a new Hot Tub to sit outside and watch the

ever changing sky or the spectacular star show on a clear night. You

may even see deer, wild turkey and plenty of other wildlife just

outside your door! This home has Heat & Air conditioning, Gas Log

Fireplace, a fully appointed Kitchen with Dishwasher, Microwave, and

Flat Surface Stove, Outdoor Gas Grill, Washer/Dryer, 4 TV's with

Satelite Receivers (my husbands idea!), 2 DVD & VCR players and

plenty of board games to play with the family! New Pillow Top

Mattresses and a Private Bath for each bedroom makes this the

perfect place to share with friends and family. No worries - All bed

linens and towels are provided.

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 High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

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!

Highly recommended! Beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was everything listed and more! It was the perfect getaway! Quiet and away from it all. During the day the views were beautiful, and at night the sky was lit up with starts. I highly recommend staying at this cabin, I will definitely be back. Terry was a terrific host... easy directions, helpful with local activities and everything was clean and laid out for us when we arrived. One of the best places I have rented!

If you are looking for a small place with great food, visit Wild Craft Eatery in Boone, NC. We caught a live band and some drinks at The Local. Both great places that I will visit again.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin located in a gated community. As soon as you open the front door, you are greeted with a mountain view through a wall of windows overlooking the rear deck. The rear deck has a hot tub, screened in area, and an amazing view. The photos don't do it justice! It is very peaceful and quiet and you can't see other cabins. The cabin itself is very nice and clean and each of the three nice sized bedrooms have their own full bathrooms. The owner is great to work with and has put together a book of things to do in the area. I would highly recommend this cabin and can't wait to go back!

This was our second stay at this cabin. It is the cleanest place we have stayed. The view is perfect. We have 3 small children and they loved the park in the community. Great place. Definitely would recommend it.
