Cozy Creek Cottages is a family run business since 1976. First owned and constructed by the Malmin Family, Karl and Dee Malmin along with their 2 children, Kyle and Stacey. After 45 years, the Malmin's decided it was time to retire, and in 2021 the resort was sold . The new owner was elated when the opportunity to purchase Cozy Creek Cottages became available as they were very familiar and very fond of the area having vacationed in Maggie Valley as early as the 1990's when Ghost Town in the Sky was in it's heyday!

Maggie Valley is filled with great restaurants, unique shopping, championship golf, and tons of outdoor adventure.

Amenities include a full kitchen complete with dinnerware, cookware, and utensils, separate living area with a fireplace, dining area, fresh linen, a private deck and of course, a coffee maker!


We offer both one and two bedroom cottages equipped with everything you'll need during your stay including all linens.

Our two bedroom cabins can accommodate up to six people.  Plus, all cottages include your own personal outdoor grill for your prize winning barbecue!
