  • Great time!

    "The house was HUGE! pictures don't do this place justice. Definitely a great place to get away for a long weekend or a week. The dock was one of the highlights as well. Awesome place!"

    "Matthew's Manor was an ideal vacation rental for our Family Vacation!! Our family, ranging from 17 years of age to 79, enjoyed the lake activities (swimming, diving, boating) as well as the volley ball court and swimming pool. Jumping off the boathouse roof was a favorite! The house itself was magnificent and large enough to allow us to separate and do individual tasks such as read a book, view and send e-mails and enjoy the game room and gym. The family membeers in their 20's spent most of their time swimming in the lake and the pool and playing volleyball. The adventurous kayaked on the lake! We rented a party boat with a water slide for 4 hours and cruised the lake naturally using the water slide to slide into the water. What fun! Maurice was a wonderful resource during our stay. The house is also convenient to stores, movies, churches, etc. Everything about the property exceeded our expectations! Just one suggestion: some sort of railing going down to the boathouse and lake would be very helpful. We thank the Matthews for sharing their beautiful house with us. The care that they give to their property is very evident. We highly recommend this property for anyone who desires an enjoyable stay in Georgia!"

  • Quiet dog-friendly retreat

    "Enjoyed our stay and would be repeat renters. Area is quiet, located on a dead-end street (good for morning dog walks). An older couple with an elderly dog and were in search of a dog-friendly, mid-way point to explore Helen (about 30 minutes away), multiple waterfalls & state parks (40 minutes to an hour away), and also the Atlanta attractions (zoo and aquarium about 1 hour away). Although we did not have time to enjoy the dock or the lake (maybe next time), this place really fit the bill for us. Cozy and comfortable, basically right across the road from Laurel Park (which includes a dog park where you and your four-legged friend or children can meet and mingle with locals), close to a really nice Kroger, a few restaurants, and the new woodland Botanical Gardens. Wal-Mart, mall, and multiple major chain restaurants are just a short distance away. House is as advertised, clean, everything worked, good water pressure, kitchen was well equipped and appreciated the little extras, i.e. aluminum foil, storage bags, cleaning products, etc. Owner was friendly, accommodating, and quick to respond to any questions. Only negative would be some of the outdoor areas. The driveway (although there is street level parking available), some of the yard, and the short pathway to the lake are all on an incline. For that reason, would not recommend this rental to anyone with impaired walking ability, but if you have good legs and a dog, this is a good centrally located rental. Deposit was promptly refunded."

  • The Complete Vacation Home

    "We had reunion vacation with a number of friends and their families. 12 adult and 12 kids. The house had ample room for everyone and was very convenient to the local amenities(grocery store, restaurants, marinas). The large dining tables were great for dinners and the kitchen was great for preparing large meals. I think the favorite places in the house were the bar downstairs and the pool area. I believe that is were we spent most of our time. The walk to the dock was not too bad just a little steep. We would recommend Port Royal Marina for boat rentals. It was a great week with family and friends. I would highly recommend Chateau Lanier for larger parties looking for a relaxing week. The owners were great to deal with also. Always a quick response with any questions we had. Thanks again for a great week! We would love to do it again."
