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.

A True Heaven in the Hills

  • 5 of 5

This was a third time staying at Heaven in the Hills and it keeps getting better. This time a full week. Even after that it was still hard to leave.

The cabin itself is gorgeous. Perfect mix of rustic cabin without losing amenities we've come to enjoy. Beautiful open design and a view that stops you in your tracks. Very long mountain view facing south. Can barely find another cabin in sight helps you feel truly secluded.

The neighborhood of Powder Horn has all the thrills. From challenging hikes along fast moving rivers. Paddle boats at the club house and a pool. You can stay a week a barely scratch the surface on all there is to do.

Can't wait to go back.

Several couple friends gathered here for a wedding that was held nearby/ friend reunion. It was delightful. We enjoyed hot tub with a breathtaking view, slow breakfasts, and evenings by the fire. Would highly recommend!!

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!

Great views and super clean

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.'
