About Vicki Matthews

After selling our business in Atlanta we moved to the lake in 1997, where we lived until moving to Destin, Florida in 2009. We have experienced some of the best times of our lives in this home. Our 4 children, 7 grandchildren and extended families have loved having a place large enough to all congregate comfortably and enjoy the fabulous amenities this property offers. From a very young age, our grandchildren have been swimming, skiing, tubing, fishing, jumping off the dock, riding their bikes, scooters and skateboards in the large circular driveway, shooting baskets, playing volleyball and much, much more. We have built memories here that will never be forgotten. It is our sincere hope that your stay in our home will produce unforgettable memories and special times that will last a lifetime!

Vicki Matthews purchased this house in 1997

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family of 23 thoroughly enjoyed this house. All agreed this was our best vacation spot ever. We started planning this vacation a year ago. I searched VRBO for houses with a private pool that could comfortably fit all of us. This house stood out.
LOCATION:
The location of this house is unbeatable. Situated on the quieter part of the lake with an island right across from the house ensured that we had absolute privacy, while maintaining access to a huge stunning lake and all the water activity that comes with it.
ACTIVITIES
The kids (& some adults) were kept busy jumping off the dock and kayaking in the area around the house. (we rented three extra kayaks from The Outdoor World in Dawsonville). We rented a skiboat for a couple of days, once with a driver to help the kids learn to wakeboard. we took day trips to some of the state parks and waterfalls, tubing on the cartecay river, horseback riding, stone mountain, the Coke museum and white water rafting on the Ocoee in Tennessee. Most of the trips were about an hour away with the exception of the white water rafting that was two hours away but deemed totally worth it by those who participated. Some of the younger kids also went to the Gainesville aquatic center (20 min away) one day and enjoyed their outdoor (empty) slides. We had alternate activities planned in case of inclement weather but the weather was absolutely perfect for our entire stay!
HOUSE
The house itself was a dream come true. I was a bit nervous that it would be a bit tight for us or that some would complain that it was not "nice" enough. Those nervous feeling evaporated the moment each of our families walked through the door. We never felt crowded in the least bit and to the contrary everyone was blown away by how beautiful the house was. Inside and out we felt like we were in our own private resort. The pool, volleyball court, dock, lake, sitting areas,Pool table & kitchen were all well used by us. If we came to this house again we would plan less day trips because there was so much to do in the house. There were a few accomplished pianists in our group and they teamed up with the baby grand piano to entertain us throughout our stay.
MAURICE
If we had to give out an award on this stay, it would go to Maurice for being the MVP. One of the nicest people i have ever met, he made sure that everything was perfect. He took care of us like a doting uncle when appropriate, but never intruded at all.

Wonderful Summer Vacation/2014

  • 5 of 5
Matthew's Manor was a wonderful home!! We had a large group and the home accommodated everyone of us...with plenty of room!! The lake was just gorgeous and the boathouse was great!! We spent most of our days jumping from the party deck and tubing/skiing with our boat, playing volleyball (loved the sand), warming up in the jacuzzi, and swimming in the gorgeous pool. I cannot say enough about this home!! I think the adults enjoyed it as much as the children did!! Maurice, the Property Manager, was wonderful!!! Any time you needed something, he was there... thank you, Maurice!!
We will definitely be recommending this place to others!! Thank you, again, for making our vacation a memorable one!!!

Beautiful and Spacious Property

  • 5 of 5
We spent our first family reunion at this lovely Gainsville property. The home easily accommodated 18 family members. The house was beautiful and equipped with everything we might have needed. The pool was large enough that we could all swim and there was always the lake option. Sitting on the upper level of the floating dock was a picturesque view. We would not hesitate to recommend this property for a relaxing family getaway!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
The property was perfect for a family reunion. It was very clean, with a well stocked kitchen, and a great layout with plenty of space. The pool and hot tub were a big hit with both the kids and the adults. There were plenty of lounge chairs, floats, and pool toys. With the retractable shades, the decks made wonderful gathering spaces all day. We had a boat and jet skies thus were able to take advantage of the calm waters in front of the boat house to teach the younger members of our family to ski and wakeboard. Like the house, the boat house was well stocked with water toys, small skies, and fishing equipment. The walk from the house to the lake was difficult for the older members of the family as it was steep and long. The winding stone steps helped but there wasn't a banister. Given the size of our group, we made daily runs to Publics for food and beverages. It was nice to have two refrigerators and two ice makers were an added bonus. We highly recommend this property.

Family reunion

  • 4 of 5
We were there with children and grandchildren. Beautiful place but would caution older guests about all the steps and different levels. The 87 year old grandfather could not make it to the dock. Kitchen and eating areas were very nice...loved that and that Publx was near. Well taken care of and everything from salt to beach towels were available..thanks for that.

Family Getaway/Reunion

  • 5 of 5
What a great time! We had 17 people and the house accommodated us wonderfully! Even with such a big group, we never felt crowded. Everyone had plenty of space and privacy. The house has everything you could possibly need - from a full kitchen to board games to arcade games to a pool table. The pool and hot tub were fabulous and we had a great time jumping in the lake. We brought a boat for fishing and tubing and our kayaks. Can't wait to go back for another relaxing week at Matthew's Manor!
