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 Northeast Mountains

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.

Amazing Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a month in this wonderful house just 1.5 mikes to the nearest boat ramp. Matthew and Debbie were awesome owners who made us fill right at home. This house has everything you will need to enjoy your vacation close to Lake Russell and the other lakes. We really enjoyed the fishing, and it was great to have a nice cleaning station to clean our fish and power to charge our boat batteries. We are so happy that we stayed in this house due to the closeness to Lake Russell and the best rental in the area. We highly recommend this great house to anyone just wanting to go fishing, hunting or just getting away for a nice vacation. Thanks Matthew and Debbie!

Debbie and Matthew have done an amazing job with this place. We have been using Home Away for a while now and this is, without a doubt, my favorite place. If you plan to be in the Lake Russell area, this is the place to stay :)

Everything was great.

The house was very spacious and the pictures don't do it justice. It was a great place to stay and we really enjoyed it.

Very nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and we enjoyed staying there very much. Debbie and Matthew were very helpful and Debbie came out to help with the weird internet problem we had. The signal is ok and pretty sufficient for the given area. Everything that you need to have a nice place to stay is there. The place was very clean and homey. We enjoyed making smores while we were there. We couldn't have asked for somewhere that was more central to everything there is to do in the area.. great location. If we come back to the area we will definitely love to stay there again.
