 Located on the banks of Jonathan Creek  and nestled in the beauty of the

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 to the Barone Family. Shaun

and Jessica Barone along with their 6 children were elated when the opportunity

to purchase Cozy Creek Cottages became available as they were both 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!

We offer both one and two bedroom cottages equipped with everything you'll need during your stay including all linens. Our cozy one-bedroom cabins are perfect for couples and can accommodate up to four people (assuming two of them like a sofa-bed) and all but one of these cottages comes with your private deck overlooking Jonathan Creek. Our two bedroom cabins can accommodate up to six people.  Plus, all cottages include your own personal outdoor grill for your prize winning barbecue!

The fun doesn't stop inside. Outside you'll find lots to do including a "park-like" playground along with outdoor games such as tether-ball, ladder-ball, and basketball.

My family and I just left after spending a week at Cozy Creek Cottages with our dog. Our cottage was extremely clean and well kept. The cottage was very comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay, especially sitting on the back porch at night listening to the creek. It is in a wonderful location, has easy access to Cherokee, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Gatlinburg and skiing during the winter, all within an hour and a half drive. There's a great playground for children to use and everyone really enjoyed playing in the creek. We will definitely be contacting them again for availability the next time we go to Maggie Valley!
