Tradition reimagined at this year’s Cashiers Designer Showhouse

Cashiers Designer Showhouse runs from Aug. 26 thru Sept. 4 and benefits the Cashiers Historical Society

The Cashiers Designer Showhouse has been a popular tradition in Western North Carolina for 25 years.

The first showhouse was the family home of local designer, Lynn Monday. The charming country cottage was nestled on the edge of Cashiers Lake.

The house was built in the 1930s and later purchased in 1960 as a summer retreat by Lynn’s parents. Lynn tells the story that when her parents first met at Cashiers Lake, her mother saw the house and dreamed of living there one day.

This year’s showhouse will continue the tradition of the perfect mountain home … reimagined for today’s family.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Cashiers Designer Showhouse, more than a dozen designers from Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee will transform a new residence designed and built by Dillard Jones and located in Fieldstone, a neighborhood in The Club at High Hampton.

Cashiers Designer Showhouse supports a variety of educational activities hosted by Cashiers Historical Society for local schools.
