About Ilaeka Villa

I lived and worked in Europe for 20 years before returning to Tennessee to live near my family. My Dad, retired IBM exec known by our guests as 'Papa Phil', helps me with the business and handles the popular catering we offer the cottages. He lives in a nearby 1800s farmhouse and guests love his cooking! I handle marketing and customer service and we do all we can to make our guests happy!

Ilaeka Villa purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Ilaeka Villa chose Crossville

I always loved the beauty the Cumberland Plateau and all the surrounding region has to offer especially the peace and quiet! I decided to come back from Europe where I had been living to be near my family and open a B&B style vacation rental business which was eco friendly and committed to offering a wonderful pampering experience in the countryside to our city stressed guests! I tried to equip the cottages as I had found country vacation homes in Europe - with all the bells and whistles! The area has so many waterfalls, hikes, and Appalachian charm we know you will like it too. Lakes, rivers and lots of great hikes surround us!

What makes this cottage unique

Upscale country cottage with all the amenities: Private outdoor Hot Tub, wood burning fireplace, indoor spa tub, eco friendly soaps and toiletries, spa robes, organic farmhouse catering, all natural linens, book library, flat screen hi def 200 channels and more! Wonderful star gazing, outdoor cowboy style firepit, hiking and fishing onsite. Mountain View and wide open vistas. Near to shopping, antiques, local attractions, gourmet restaurants, local crafts, horse riding and the nationally acclaimed Cumberland Playhouse. Close to state parks, Watts Bar Lake, Piney and Ozone Waterfalls and Cumberland Trail.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What were the chances of finding a secret, perfect "place" to rest, be restored and cherish one's family? What do you do when you need to get away and you can't go far? You google and find Honeysuckle Cottage.... Hot tub! Fish Pond! Coziest bed! Loft for our kids! Pulley basket for the kids! All the "Farm and Fun" we've yet to explore for our stay was much too short! (A family from our county rented both cottages and wrote this in our Honeysuckle journal)

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, peaceful and amazingly quiet. Great place to just relax unwind and spend quality time together. Honeysuckle is adorable inside and out. Love the hot tub and fire pit. Hiked to the falls. It was wonderful. Will definitely visit again. Have already recommended it to friends!!

Back again

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our dogs, a greyhound and golden, just returned from a weekend at Honeysuckle. This was our second visit and we were as pleased as before. Honeysuckle is a cozy, warm, romantic cottage. Most every amenity, from a well equiped kitchen, special soaps in the bath rooms, plenty of firewood, spectacular views, wonderful hot tub, heated bathroom floor, romantic bedroom, the most delicious muffins (I could go on and on) was provided. Ilaeka and Papa Phil are charming hosts.

I am not sure who had a better time, the dogs who could run, play and hike or us either relaxing in the hot tub or lounging in front of the fireplace. You can be a lazy a or active as you like. There is lots of hiking close by which we also enjoyed.

We are already planning our next trip. We highly recommend this property and can't wait to our next getaway.

Owner's Response: We love it when our guests return again and again and it was great to see you all again! Winter on the Cumberland plateau is a special time... very quiet and still... the perfect season to cozy by the fire, soak in the hot tub, gaze at clear starry nights and maybe do that winter hike you've been promising yourself. Honeysucile Cottage has a wood burning fireplace and a courtesy supply of firewood is provided. We are pet friendly and dogs as well as their 2-legged buddies love the 145 acre "playground" we call home. The pet fees we charge go toward an in-depth extra cleaning program for pet stays so the next guests are happy too! Although we accept most pets, we ask everyone to check with us for pre-approval before booking their stay. We look forward to your next trip and are glad everyone had fun in the snow (and cozying beside the fireplace too)!

Birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time getting away for the weekend for a birthday special trip. Enjoyed excellent weather for a hike around the farm and through the woods. Spent a couple of hours on the deck, talking, star-gazing, and counting meteorites. Even saw a satellite or two pass overhead. Also enjoyed setting by the fire indoors.

Owner's Response: That sky at night is pretty incredible we agree and you have a great seat sitting in that hot tub on the deck! Glad to see you all again and we look forward to your next visit!

Grands add to the visit to Grandview

  • 5 of 5

We are regular visitors at Grandview Cottages. But this was a first visit with 2 grand daughters. They loved everything about it, and didn't mind the lack of internet (however, one did get a signal through the I phone, and pateched to the I pad). They loved the hammock, horse shoes, fire ring and s'mores, fishing, and the hike to upper Piney Falls. They are ready to return. Honeysuckle was their place, especially the loft.

Owner's Response: We hear over and over from families that kids just love it here and although our other cottage (Pinecone VRBO 191274) gets better cell/smartphone internet service, Honeysuckle is a real favorite with older kids with the high up loft, farm pulley and "hidden room". Families seem to re-connect with each other "in the real" so to speak and find they can actually talk to each face to face again - sitting around a campfire, in the hot tub, on a hike... just enjoying each others company again ! Glad your grandkids had fun and hope to have them back with you all again. We always love having you all.

HONEYSUCKLE COTTAGE THE MOST OUTSTANDING, BEAUTIFUL, COZY, Secluded, PLACE ON EARTH!

  • 5 of 5

We found this perfect little cozy cottage online! It was by chance it just happened to be just 9 minutes away from my sisters house who also lived in Grandview, TN. We live in Jacksonville, Florida. This place was so awesome! The cottage had everything you could of ever needed. Just bring your own clothes, and food. Everything else was there! We loved the hot tub, and the jacuzzi. We drove around the mountains taking thousands of beautiful, breath taking photo's. We went to the Piney Waterfalls and what we thought would be a 30 minute hike, ended up being about a 20 mile hike up and around the mountain. It was fantastic! The views were amazing! I will definitely be back agine and agine! Thank you very much, llaeka & Papa Phil....your farm was simply amazing!!! We're telling all our friends about your farm and the amazing mountains and all the beauty that Tennessee has to offer! Sandra & Timmie

Owner's Response: So glad you found us and that you had a good time with your family reunion! Thanks for a great review. We think our area is beautiful too with many waterfalls neaby including a two mile hike to Piney Waterfalls right near the cottage, a 5 minute hike to Ozone Falls which is only 10 miles away, a 1 mile hike to Stinging Fork Hike on the next ridge over, a day hike to Laurel & Snow Falls in nearby Dayton and the list goes on! In addition to waterfalls all around us we have the beautiful Piney River and Watts Bar Lake 6 miles away which offer fishing, swimming, hiking and boating! In the middle of the Cumberland Trail Sytem we are truly in hiking heaven! Look forward to your next visit!

Incredible mountain views, peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at Honeysuckle cottage was excellent! We had 3 days of rain, and the views were still amazing (morning mist cleared to reveal a panoramic view of trees and distant mountains, just gorgeous). We arrived at 9pm and it was just getting dark, our kids were delighted to see tiny fairy lights in the woods and all over the grassy field behind the cottage - first time ever seeing fireflies, and they were everywhere!!! Saw a variety of wildlife- deer, rabbits, tons of birds, toads, honey bees - no mosquitoes or biting flies though so evenings in the hot tub on the porch were very comfortable. Were not able to catch any fish in the pond due to the weather, but still a fun trek down, past apple and blueberry trees. The cottage was very cozy and furnished beautifully, with everything we could possibly need, including personal touches of homemade lavender soaps and welcome goodie basket that were so thoughtful. The stairs to the loft were very steep but handled well by my 10 and 16 year old boys. The homemade breakfasts were delicious, especially the biscuits & homemade jams. My 10 year old enjoyed running down to the farm store to get fresh peaches, which were the best we've ever had, as were the freshly picked blueberries. We will definitely be back, would love to see this place in full fall colors! Thanks for a wonderful stay, Ilaeka & Papa Phil!

Owner's Response: Thanks for a great review! Glad you all had fun in the country! Yep that loft is high to the second bedroom - kids love it usually as it is kind of like a treehouse up there they tell us - and adults appreciate that the master bedroom is on the ground floor! Fall is gorgeous but books up fast! Have a great summer and see you soon we hope!
