About the Owner
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!

Great views and super clean
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.
View was amazing! Property was great. I would stay again!
Stayed 3 nights cabin was real nice!
Great place with out of this world view. Beautiful cabin. Great amenities. Comfortable and quiet.
The view is amazing!
The home is beautiful and everything was as advertised, the view was the best I have experienced since staying in the mountains!! We enjoyed our stay would recommend this home to anyone looking for a stay in the mountains!!
Relaxation with amazing views!
This cabin was even more beautiful than the pictures show, and was very clean and comfortable. Waking up each morning to the view of clouds rising from the mountains was breathtaking. The hot tub was great for the cool nights. My boyfriend and I visited from Charlotte, and it was a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city- it was great to unplug and enjoy nature. We went hiking at Grandfather Mountain and Linville falls, each about a 40 minute drive from the cabin. Hint-there is a Groupon for entry to Grandfather Mountain for $25 instead of $40 (for 2 people). We also went into the towns of Blowing Rock (my favorite spot-go to Blowing Rock Ale house and get a beer flight) and Boone. Terry was great to work with from start to finish. I would recommend this to friends and family for sure! We are so ready to plan our next stay!
Didn't want to leave
My husband and I have rented many cabins in the Blue Ridge but this was by far one of our favorite! The view that greets you when you open the front door is indeed breathtaking, and everything in the cabin has been well thought out. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well-stocked (and a great size for 2 cooks), there's a TV in every room in case it rains, the hot tub is conveniently located on the back deck and the screened in porch was great for those afternoon thundershowers. Plus the community has plenty to do if you want to venture out with a pool, hiking trails, paddle boats on the lake - I can't say enough. From this point forward, when we travel to the Boone area, we will want to stay at Heaven in the Hills because that's exactly what it is...a little piece of Heaven.

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.'
