Designer Showhouse 2013

The Cashiers Historical Society this year, has chosen
Serenity Acres to be the location for the 2013 Cashiers Designer Showhouse™.

Cashiers Designer ShowhouseKathleen Rivers, the chair of this year's event said "From the moment I set foot on Serenity Acres my reaction was immediate and palpable……the perfect place for The Cashiers Designer Showhouse™!

Everything about the property spoke to what is best about the Cashiers Valley: the views, the rolling land, the lush trees and rhododendron, and the way the homes sat neatly tucked into the hillside. 

It would take imagination and creativity for the designers to bring a more current aesthetic to the interiors of the homes, however, these homes fit the scale of most people who live in the area and the topography would lend itself perfectly to the talents of the local landscape designers."

The Designer Showhouse runs from August 17th through September 1, during which time visitors will experience this beautiful property with three homes, shop areas and stables!

Each day guests can enjoy a delicious lunch at The Cafe at the Designer Showhouse. Charlie Clabern, chef and owner of Cafe 107, has planned seasonally engaging luncheon menus which will change on a daily basis. Flavorful soups, seasonal salads, favorite sandwiches and yummy desserts will arrive freshly made every day.

Make plans to join us at for lunch at the Showhouse Café or feel free to wander outside and find a scenic spot for a picnic! The Cafe will be open Monday – Saturday  11:30AM – 2:30PM Sunday 1:00PM – 2:30PM
