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

Every year we rent a house from VRBO for our annual family reunion. We have rented houses all over the country and everyone in our family agreed that this was the best house we have ever stayed in. There was something for everyone ages 18 months to 74 years old whether relaxing by the pool, playing volleyball or basketball, fishing or jumping off the dock into the lake. This house has it all! We all agree that this is our family reunion home for years to come. Thank you Matthews Family! We look forward to enjoying your wonderful home again next summer.

Our entire extended family (16 in all) had the most amazing time at this beautiful house for our annual summer reunion. From the amazing location, to the incredible amenities (yes, there are two bars with icemakers!), this is one terrific vacation spot. This house has everything you could think of for having a great time and several things that you probably didn’t think of, but will appreciate. From a thoroughly equipped kitchen to enough linen for a small army, everything is right at your fingertips. The pool and hot-tub are really nice and the volleyball court was a huge hit. The boathouse even had extra inner-tubes that made it our best vacation ever. Having a huge theater and game room in the house was an incredible treat as well. The reality really lives up to listing on the website in every way and the owners and managers were incredibly helpful. The property manager even helped us launch our boat at a nearby park and made sure we found our way back to the boathouse! I can’t say enough about the house, the people and the experience. Well worth every penny!

We recently held our annual sales meeting here. More than enough room for 9 guys. The dining room table doubled as a conference table during the day. The downstairs game rooms were a popular place to hang out after dinner. We brought our own groceries to take advantage of the well appointed kitchen and grill. What a beautiful and serene location.

Our investment club just returned from a wonderful weekend at this beautiful, spacious home. It was like something straight from a magazine. The pictures do not fully convey how spectacular Matthew's Manor truly is. We enjoyed all the ameneties that this home provides, especially the endless entertainment options, indoor and out. All you have to do is show up and you won't want to leave, EVER!!!! We loved the privacy and the great views that this home has to offer. We could not believe how well stocked this home was with every detail imaginable. We have found our home away from home and can't wait to return!!!!
