I have been to many dinner parties at Longreach and they were absolutely the most elegant and impressive events I have ever attended. The hostess has a flair for details and a talent for planning menus, wine and flowers. Great service!! It does not get any better than this. Such a beautiful setting in the magical mountains of Cashiers, NC

For an absolutely elegant dining venue, Cynthia Turoff's mountain home "Longreach" cannot be beat. Teaming up with Chattooga Club Executive Chef Ed Selle is a winning combination for a perfect meal in a warm, gracious and inviting setting with the personal touch that only a special home such as this can provide. My husband and I have enjoyed being guests many times at the Turoff home and highly recommend this very special mountaintop retreat.
Pulling into the estate courtyard, I knew our event was going to be one-of-a-kind and we were not disappointed. Cynthia thinks of every detail from classic place settings to luxurious guest favors. Our corporate board dinner included scrumptious cuisine, aromatic flower arrangements and a residential setting that encouraged relaxed bonding among our executives.

To enjoy a luncheon or dinner at Longreach is truly an “otherworldly” experience. The architecture of the home is masterful, but even more so is the sophisticated, classical, elegant, yet warm and charming ambience created by the owner. The home itself is comparable to some of the most beautiful I have ever experienced in England or France, yet it rests nestled on a ridge in beautiful Cashiers Valley.
Longreach is tucked into the corner of North Carolina on a plateau nearly 4000 feet high. What a splendid setting for a celebration embellished by magnificent food and wine. We have attended many parties there and they are truly magical. Longreach is the epitome of perfection and you must experience it to believe it.

On a recent Summer evening, my wife and I were fortunate to be included in a dinner party hosted by Cynthia Turoff at her home in Cashiers, N C. Her house is a lovely Georgian style brick residence situated high on a mountain ridge. Inside, her home is spectacular, and the dining room is the crown jewel. Everything in the room is lovely, from the handsome antique furniture to the magnificent chandelier. Just what you might expect from a former interior decorator. The five-course dinner completely matched its surroundings in sophistication and creativity. The wines served were the finest. It was an experience we shall never forget.

Being a dinner guest at Longreach is a transforming experience. We were completely captured by the timeless beauty of the home. The house itself projects such a majestic and dignified quality reminiscent of a bygone era. True Southern hospitality is on display from the moment you enter the grand foyer, and no one can match the splendor of Mrs. Turoff’s dinner table.
Bud and I have never left from an evening at Longreach without an afterglow of amazement that just stays with you. The ambience is so extraordinary and reflect the passions and talents of the Turoff’s. What a special opportunity it is for Longreach to be shared with others!
Although it may feel like you’re in France, Longreach offers the closest experience to Parisian perfection and it’s in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina in Cashiers. From the incredible Architecture, the French Chateau with its privacy, gracious rooms, lovely art, and hand-painted murals of the surrounding countryside offers some of the finest dining and entertaining available. The William Yeoward crystal, Fortuny table runners, exquisite china and Tiffany silver service set the stage! Longreach is truly one of the finest experiences I’ve encountered anywhere.

I have had the good fortune to be a guest at several of the Turoff's Christmas Feasts at Longreach. Everything was perfection from the hors d'oeuvres to the traditional Bûche de Noël....lucky me!

Longreach... "how do I love thee...let me count the ways" my words to express the moments spent here. Time after time we have been guests and have experienced evenings of magical beauty. The house is elegant. It is handsome yet exquisitely beautiful. John and I have gathered at that table receiving the gifts of Cynthia's creativity a visual feast never the same menu or flowers or guests but always remarkable. Always feeling that you are the most special one to have been there.
