Sprawling across nearly 300 acres of natural beauty and adjoining the Nantahala National Forest, lies Silver Run Reserve, the location of the 2020 Cashiers Designer Showhouse (CDS). Silver Run was originally assembled by the civic-minded Neely family as a private family estate nearly 40 years ago. Located within the prestigious southern corridor of Cashiers, Silver Run is in the midst of a revival as it is being transformed into a private, low-density, wonderfully amenitized mountain community. The 2020 Showhouse is a 3,000-square-foot Mountain Modern Cottage, custom-designed by the renowned Meyer Greeson Paullin Benson firm and built by Cashiers’ own Harris Custom Builders. With beautiful mountain and wooded views, and close to the center of the community and The Lodge, the Showhouse is surrounded by tranquility and beauty. Leading local, regional, and national interior designers will grace one of Cashiers' most storied properties with a collective aesthetic vision for a once-in-a-lifetime Showhouse.

The Cashiers Designer Showhouse is the Cashiers Historical Society's signature fundraising event. In partnership with Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, CDS raises vital funds to support our mission and cultural programming. Scroll down to view our 2020 Designers and purchase your Benefactor Package

VIP Preview Days

August 21 - 22, 2020

Sponsored by Dillard Jones and Tribus Interior Design

*Our traditional Opening Night Party is now an Opening Day Party. While we had certainly hoped to dance the night away with you, we are unable to host a large gathering. Instead, we will host two VIP Preview Days exclusively for our Benefactors, Sponsors, and Designers. We want to thank our amazing Opening Night Party Chair Flavia Harton for her hard work this year. We are excited for her to be back in 2021 for a special post-coronavirus event for our 2020 Benefactors, Sponsors, and Designers, tentatively scheduled for May 28, 2021, back at Silver Run Reserve.


This year's new VIP Preview Day continues on Friday, August 21, but by appointment only. We have also added Saturday, August 22, to offer enough private reservations. Benefactors and Sponsors will have the opportunity to make a private reservation to enjoy an intimate Insiders Tour with the team responsible for designing and building the home. Private appointments will allow guests to drive directly to the Showhouse, eliminating the need for a shuttle. Raise a glass to the team and enjoy a very special picnic basket from Epting Events and our sponsors. Preview Day is sponsored by Dillard Jones and Tribus Interior Design


RESERVATIONS: a CHS representative will be contacting each Benefactor and Sponsor to schedule private reservations.

The daily ticketed portion of the Showhouse will be fabulously virtual for $25 per ticket. Enjoy the beauty of the Showhouse with the added safety and comfort of your own home. Virtual tickets will be available to purchase on Thursday, August 27. A virtual ticket includes:​
