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

excellent

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three generations enjoyed the lake activities, which included boating, swimming and diving.The generous sized pool and the volley ball court was great for the grandchildren as their parents and grandparents relaxed as spectators. The house was large enough to allow us to gather for dinner and board games while allowing us to separate to do some reading or process emails.(The internet was too slow to provide a satisfactory response.)We went to nearby Helen for most of a day which included a hike to a water fall, river tubing and a Bavarian meal.Our family is looking forward to returning next year. The family experience was 'priceless.'

Family vacation for 23 from Florida & Missouri

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week!!! Your home is perfect for families with children of all ages to enjoy. We had the enough room for all 23 of us. The dining room was perfect for the 10 adults and the 13 children ate at the breakfast area table and barstools or the table outside the kitchen on the deck.

Weather was hot -- a little warmer than we expected but no problem. We rented a pontoon boat for 2 days -- the kids love the tube behind the boat. They also enjoyed the top of the boat house jumping in the lake. The 2 younger kids(3 & 4) had sand buckets and played in the sand at the volleyball court. The pool was used from early morn until late at night.

The neat thing was in the evenings the older 4 kids (15 - 14 - 13- 12) played the board games you had Risk, Life, etc from years ago. So nice to see this instead of electronics. The 13 children were from age 15-1/2 to almost 4 yrs. They got along so well we were amazed. The 2 older ones had not met all of Tom's grandchildren and they were so helpful with them fishing, etc. We did everything. The little girls used the fitness room for the mirrors to practice ballet and dancing -- so cute.

I hope we can plan a vacation there again. We have gone to Hilton Head & Naples with our children but not recently. We were waiting for the younger ones to get out of the toddler stage.

Maurice was helpful, considerate and a great asset for check-in and during our stay. I called him to get the name of a dentist for my son's girlfriend that broke a tooth. He got an appointment for her on Mon morn at 11 -- amazing for a new patient to be seen so quickly even if it was an emergency. We appreciate his help.

We have given the VRBO # to several of our friends and family. I hope they can enjoy your home.

Thank you for sharing your home with our family.

Fabulous lake house

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful lake house with us. The family enjoyed all the house and lake had to offer. Jumping off the top deck of the boat dock was enjoyed by all ages – from 9 to 71. We enjoyed a family dinner in the dining room and a picnic by the pool. With groceries in the refrigerator there was no need to leave the property.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

My family, all 19 of us, spent a great week at this property. My phone and email conversations with Vicki were very positive. This is not a typical rental house. You can tell Vicki has a lot of love for this property. The house, pool, lake, and everything in between was exceptional. Maurice met us at the house when we arrived and gave us the tour. He came back twice during the week to make minor repairs. He could not have been more accommodating. We would not hesitate to go back.

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.
