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)

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!

Honeysuckle Cottage - Beautiful/Cozy/Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We so enjoyed staying in Honeysuckle Cottage. It could not have been any more perfect for our much needed get-away. The home was cozy and relaxing. We love the mountains and the seclusion of the cottage was awesome. It overlooks rolling fields and the mountains in the background; it is absolutely gorgeous. The owners were very hospitable and the cottage is very well kept and decorated so nicely. Needless to say, we will be back and for a longer time.

Fun and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for a relaxing weekend get-away. Honeysuckle cottage was great for that. It was comfortable, romantic and quiet. This is an unusual cottage with loads of charm; a mix of Tennessee farmhouse and European charm. The loft area is charming. The master bedroom was very comfortable. We had Papa Phil's pizza, and breakfast muffin picnic and both were yummy. We bought bread, pickles, honey and jam. All wonderful! We brought the rest of our food and drink as there is nothing very close and we wanted to stay in. An added plus was that we could big our two dogs and we have large dogs. A golden and greyhound. They had a ball running the pastures and hiking on the property trail. The property trail is a nice hike with just the right amount of elevation. The trail was also clearly marked. The dogs loved the pond. There was even a bit of snow on the ground. The views are very pretty. A highlight was sitting in the hot tub one night and looking at the stars and a full moon. It was perfectly clear with no clouds and spectacular! If you are looking for a place off the beaten path, with lots of outdoor activities, it is perfect. We hope to be back soon.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your "off the beaten path country pampering" as we like to call it! We loved meeting you and your dogs and glad they had fun on the farm and onsite hiking trails! We do an extra round of hepa filter cleaning when pets leave so that the next folks who come don't know pets ever stayed there but you all left it so clean we hardly had to do anything! Thanks! Look forward to seeing you again soon. Ilaeka and Papa Phil (owners)

Perfect, Relaxing Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I celebrated our 6th anniversary at Honeysuckle Cottage. We wanted to spend uninterrupted time together away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We were indeed able to relax, unwind, and explore on this beautiful piece of property. The scenery, hiking, waterfalls, and hospitality were much more than we every expected. We highly recommend Papa Phil's homemade pizza - delicious! Ilaeka was so helpful and kind and we could not have had a better experience! Thank you!

A Wonderful Experience for a Family's First Mountain Vacation

A Wonderful Experience for a Family's First Mountain Vacation
  • 5 of 5
We are mainly beach-loving people. We would've never considered a mountain vacation if our youngest daughter did not go to a gymnastics camp about 40 minutes away. Grandview Mountain Cottages was suggested by the gymnastics camp. We were able to book a stay for the week. Everything exceeded our expectations from the Honeysuckle Cottage to the spectacular countryside views to the hospitality of the owners, Ilaeka and Papa Phil. We also brought our teenage daughter, her friend and our 2 dogs! Everyone LOVED the experience and adventure. We hiked both the onsite trails (Stagecoach and Fern) and Upper Piney Falls twice. At Upper Piney Falls, we were fortunate to experience both the trickling waterfall on Monday (summer is the dry season) to the raging waterfall by Friday after they had unseasonal rain for a few days. I will post the videos on Facebook. We also hiked in the Great Smoky Mountains as well as to the nearby Cumberland Trails Suspension Bridge. The views from Honeysuckle Cottage were beautiful and our 2 dogs loved their freedom. We did not put a leash on them during our entire 7-night stay. Looking into the night sky from the front porch was like looking at a galaxy. The starry skies were endless. It was so peaceful and relaxing at the cottage especially relaxing in the hot tub at night. AND the food was amazing! Everything was locally grown and preservative-free. The jams were made from the fruits of their own garden. We ordered pizzas for our first night and the Sausage Gravy & Biscuit picnic for the next morning. As my husband said, "Sausage & gravy will never be the same after eating Papa Phil's!" It was so amazingly delicious, we ordered another breakfast picnic for the following weekend. We brought 8 jars of homemade jam home with us! The experience was incredible! I can say that we will definitely be returning in the future. I highly recommend a stay at the Honeysuckle Cottage in Grandview, TN. Thank you Ilaeka & Papa Phil for a most wonderful week!

Owner's Response: Wow is all we can say! Glad you had a good time and hope to see you again! Lots of "beach" folks are discovering the fun times to be had on the Cumberland Plateau. Loved the video. We have so many waterfalls in the area... every hike is different! Hope to see you again!
