The Turchin Family

The Turchin Companies is a dynamic organization, headed by third generation designer/developer John Turchin, specializing in construction and development, design and marketing, property management, alternative energies, and retail. The Turchin Companies began construction in South Florida in 1927 and over the last 90 years have built a well-deserved reputation as one of the premiere development companies in the state.

No strangers to North Carolina, the Turchin family fell in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains in 1970 and made it their second home from then on. Combining their passion for this exquisite area with their creative instinct and unique taste in architecture and design, the Turchin family created a one-of-a-kind luxury mountain community, The Lodges at Eagles Nest, in Banner Elk, NC. A 1,350 acre inspired mountain retreat, with altitudes over 5,000 feet, The Lodges at Eagles Nest was created as a place where residents would be reminded of their childhood summer camp days, but with an unmatched sense of luxury and distinction.

Good fortune brought the Turchin family to The Horse Shoe Farm in 2013, where they were astounded by the endless beauty and sense of peace rooted in its grounds. Feeling a deep connection to the bucolic nature of the property, the Turchins acquired the farm in 2017, with the desire to embrace the intimate setting and share it with the world.  Open to guests looking to experience the magic of this sanctuary, The Horse Shoe Farm is designed as an open palate ready to fulfill and facilitate any of our guests desires and be their ultimate home away from home.
