LIVE...YOUR GREATEST STORY! Nestled on beautiful, lush acres of high altitude and protected rainforest, The Cottage at Casuarina Lodge (pronounced casa - reena) creates a one-of-a-kind opportunity for guests desiring a unique, luxury experience. Combining the rustic elements of water, nature and air in the mountains with upscale finishes, The Cottage is unparalleled in its design and furnishings and unlike any other place on earth (AND certainly in all of Glenville, Cashiers, and the Highlands).

The space
When you first enter The Cottage, prepare to be transported to a serene experience. Put your feet up and unwind in the open and super comfortable living room. Relax on the sofa, watch a DVD movie or your favorite Netflix series, dive into a good book/local guide or engage in a board game or Jenga. Find your own quiet space (and place).

Make your own tasty treats in the kitchen area with refrigerator/freezer combo, Keurig coffee maker, tea kettle, microwave and toaster. You don't need cookware, plates, water glasses, coffee/tea cups, wine glasses, champagne flutes or silverware - We have you covered.

A table in the kitchen seats four. The giant wrap-around deck has an outdoor dining table with seating for 6 and fantastic views of the Majestic Pond, fountain and woodland areas. Just off the back deck, a 5-burner propane grill with extra gas hot plate is available for throwing together some great cuisine. Pots, pans and cooking utensils included.

The Cottage sleeps up to four guests in one open and airy studio room with a rare European Treca de Paris king-size bed (You may just have the BEST SLEEP of Your Life), luxurious down comforter and duvet, high thread count sheets and pillows. The queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room area (extra pillows and linens provided) affords sleeping options for additional travelers. The guest bathroom is equipped with a deep-soaking, antique (step-up) claws-foot tub with a rain shower combination. Forgot your hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, body wash or bubblebath? Don't sweat it - we have you covered.

Take in the fresh air, nature and seclusion with plenty of well-appointed green spaces around your personal retreat. The giant wraparound deck/patio area gives you a front row view of the Majestic Pond, fountain and wooded areas and includes a set of rocking chairs, outdoor chairs, sofa and coffee/side tables. AND...our guests LOVE the upscale gas fire table to help keep you warm on the chilly nights and create the ambiance you are searching for. The deck also features pet gates to keep your furry companions close by.

Exploring around the grounds you’ll find benches, resting rocks, stone steps for reading and relaxing in the well-maintained property. Grab the Bluetooth Speaker/Lantern and prepare to dance under the stars, with nature as your backdrop.

While we hope all guests come here to relax and enjoy nature; but we also know that so many of us need to stay connected for work, family and friends. The Cottage offers many USB Charging Outlets throughout, along with a wireless charging station for your cellphones. Our Wifi here is some of the best in the area (which is rare in the mountains). Strong enough to stream or hold your video conferences.

A mini, private driveway leads off the main pass-through driveway to the Cottage's covered carport. The Carport offers parking for up to two vehicles.

Additional Guest amenities include: Witti Glow Alarm Clock with Simulated Sunrise and bluetooth for your favorite music from Spotify, Apple Music, or other music players, Aromatherapy Oil Diffuser, battery operated candles, ironing board & iron and of course, Yoga Mats.

Every item, every piece of furniture, artwork, (some are one of a kind) and unique features have been meticulously designed, selected and sourced from Italy, France, Switzerland, Restoration Hardware and other design powerhouses to create a memorable, luxury experience.

What you WILL Experience - Peace, Serenity, Calmness, Relaxation, Security, No Worries, Privacy and Memories That Will Last A Lifetime.
What You WON'T Experience - Excessive road or highway noise, hustle and bustle, stress, bothersome pesky owners, outlandish rules or safety concerns.
