About Matthew & Debbie Allen

We are a couple in our 50's who love to spend as much time as possible at the lake. We purchased this property in 2010 and have spent the last 4 years doing a total renovation. Our permanent home is in Athens, Ga. GO DAWGS! We have a smaller property where we spend the weekends just down the road from this house so we are usually nearby to allow for flexible checkin/checkout and to assist you in any way.

Matthew & Debbie Allen purchased this house in 2010

Why Matthew & Debbie Allen chose Elberton

When our girls were very young, we would spend spring breaks camping and fishing at Lake Russell. When we started thinking about our future retirement, we decided we wanted to be in this area. So we searched and searched till we found what we think is the perfect location. We have very good neighbors and the proximity to the lake couldn't be better for us. We think you will agree.

Very peaceful and quiet. The property is very well maintained with all of the amenities you would ever need. We decided that this is definitely one of our favorite home away from home properties and we definitely will be back and recommend.

Beautiful home , very clean, and equipped like home.

  • 5 of 5

The home was very beautiful and clean , everything was very nice and the location was perfect for the boat landing. I will definitely stay again.Mike and Debbie were wonderful people it was like I already knew them. The home was decorated so beautiful. A big plus was the privacy and the fish cleaning station not to mention only minutes to the boat ramp. My wife and I are already trying to figure out when we can come back!

Wonderful relaxing six weeks!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed this home in a rural quiet neighborhood which is only a few minutes from a boat ramp and fishing on Lake Russell. From the moment we walked in the door we felt "at home" and safe in this quiet neighborhood. Matthew & Debbie were so friendly and helpful. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen is well stocked with cookware, dishes, and serving utensils. The nice deck was great for meals or just to relax and read. We visited several local parks and enjoyed the nice temperatures and arrival of Spring - birdwatching was also a plus. We were blessed to attend a church just 8 minutes away where everyone was very friendly and made us feel welcome. We would definitely recommend this home and would love to come back.
