About the Owner

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.

Relaxation with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: I am so happy to hear that you all enjoyed your stay at our cabin! I try very hard to make the cabin as comfortable and cozy as your own home but with a beautiful mountain view out your back door! I truly believe that Powder Horn Mountain is the best kept secret around and I am happy to share it with my guests!

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for one of the best houses in the Blue Ridge mountains, then look no further. Absolutely gorgeous views of the mountains on a private road, very beautiful spacious home, with lots of private bedroom space for adults and kids, screened in outdoor dining area overlooking the mountains and a huge and modern kitchen space. We rent a home in a different mountain area each summer and this was by far our favorite. An incredibly fair price for what is delivered, along with a very easy rental process with the owners, who were super helpful every step of the way. Our family spent three nights here and wished we could have spent more. Lots of great trails on property, although it is tucked pretty far into the mountains, so expect a 15-20 minute drive each way to get back to the highway along some beautiful, albeit winding roads. We were blown away and literally jumped up and down with joy when we walked in to see the views from the main floor of the house overlooking the valley. Watched thunderstorms roll in from miles away, stunning sunsets and got to see the forest light up with a dazzling display of thousands of lightening bugs at night. I HIGHLY recommend this house for couples and families alike.

Location

From the Owner

We built our dream cabin on the most beautiful spot on our mountain. The views from our deck can rival any others around!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Ski : Apalachain Ski Resort at 20 Miles Car: necessary

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

Mountain.

Whatever the season, there is always something to do at 'Heaven in

the Hills'!

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.'

'Dear Terry,

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.'

Amenities

From the Owner

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!
