Enjoy your vacation getaway while staying in a spectacular log home on 12 acres in Mark Twain National Forest nestled in a private cove located on the 'Quiet side of the Lake'. The 3 story log house has plenty of room to relax and everything you need to make your vacation perfect. Pine logs, milled and kiln-dried in North Carolina, along with notty pine wood, doors and maple hard wood flooring give the home a very rustic and warm feel. Cedar trees that were cut down on the property provide both a functional and unique accent to the home.
Once you enter you will be delighted at the spacious and open floor plan. The lake and tall hardwood trees can be seen through the large windows and sliding glass doors on the back 2 story wall of the family room.
Relax with a drink on the large, covered porch while watching and listening to the birds and wildlife without leaving your chair. You will feel like you are sitting in a tree house with nature and trees all around you.
Cook your favorite meal in a custom designed kitchen while still staying connected with your guests. The kitchen is fully equiped with everything you need to make your favorite meal. Black walnut cabinets, granite counter tops, a farmhouse sink and new stainless steel appliances makes the job easy and enjoyable. A long kitchen table made from old barn wood, the kitchen island and bar will seat up to 12 people for an evening meal.
Soak the day away in a large claw foot tub in the Master Bath. The large Master Bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed for a good night sleep. When you wake up, open the sliding glass doors to join your guests on the back porch for a morning coffee.
A spacious office just off the foyer provides a private get away for reading or using your laptop. Internet access is provided for your convenience. If you need an additional room for sleeping, you can use the day bed and roll out bed.
As you go up the stairs to the second floor, you will find a loft and two bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own full size bath, a queen size bed, 2 single beds and your very own private balcony. In addition, you have your own HVAC unit and thermostat for your own personal comfort.
There are several trails on the property to go on a nature hike through the woods. The backyard has a gradual slope to the lake.
If you need to run into town for supplies, groceries or get something to eat, it is just a short 15 minute drive. If you are looking for a day trip, Branson, Silver Dollar City and Eureka Springs, AR are only 45 minutes away.

Great place to visit.
Great place to visit.
This was a great house. The view of the lake was wonderful. The house was fully stocked with everything that we needed. We made trips to both Branson and Eureka Springs. It would be a wonderful place to stay during the summer, but we also enjoyed the peace and quiet of late winter. The snow made the area beautiful.

Owner response: We are glad you enjoyed your visit. We agree, the best time of year to spend time at our cabin for my wife and I are during the winter months....less people and best views of the lake.
Dennis, Thanks for letting us share your great house. We have 4 families that meet every year at Tablerock and we are definitely thinking about return trip to this place. The house is spacious, lots of beds, close to the lake. We were all thoroughly pleased.

We had two families together for a long-weekend stay at the house. Between 4 adults and 5 kids, we still felt the house to be very spacious and offered privacy for all. The home was beautiful, and we enjoyed the deck especially, as it was covered and shaded most of the day. The house had everything we needed, and the proximity to the lake was ideal, even though it is a large hill to navigate back and forth. The seclusion was very nice, as you wouldn't know the house was there unless you were looking for it. Being in a heavily wooded area was also ideal for our children. My only major complaints are that the view of the lake is limited because of the trees and that the shared dock is a pretty long walk from the house, and the ability to drive there does take several minutes. Otherwise, we enjoyed it thoroughly and are already planning a return trip.

Owner response: We are very grateful that you enjoyed your stay and are planning a return trip. Unfortunately, during the summer the tree folliage is pretty thick and the house is at tree level. During the fall and winter, the views are spectacular! I would like to invite you and others back at these times for better lake views. We continuously work on clearning the property. This will open up the views. We are also investigating with the corps of engineers the potential for a walkway to the dock . That would be great if we can work it out. We look forward to seeing you again next year....Thank you.
What a great rental for a family get-together!
What a great rental for a family get-together!
We just stayed at this property for 3 days with my in-laws. We had a big group with lots of small children. The home was clean, new, spacious and beautiful - we would definitely stay there again. Plenty of space for us to spread out and the open floor plan was perfect for our large family. The new, updated kitchen was a plus for preparing and serving big meals, which we did. The unfinished "game room" in the basement was a nice area for those who wanted to stay up late. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us!

We were so thrilled at this gorgeous vacation home. We had 14 in our party and there was everything we needed to be comfortable. We would recommend this home to any family or group that wanted a clean and relaxing vacation home to stay in. We are so looking forward to next years vacation and can not wait to pick the dates. Thanks to the gracious owners for sharing their beautiful home with us.

About the owner: We both grew up in St. Louis, MO, met in high school and have been married for 32 years. We currently live in The Woodlands,Texas (35 miles north of Houston) and are blessed to have 3 adult children living near-by. We moved to Houston just after getting married in 1980 and have lived there most of our lives. In 1999, our job took us to Philadelphia where we stayed for 8 years prior to returning back to Houston. Although both of us are very busy with our jobs in Houston, we always look forward to our next trip to Shell Knob. We enjoy spending time together or with family and friends. Lisa loves to cook and everyone enjoys eating her delicious meals. Dennis likes getting up early in the morning and take a leisurely boat ride on the lake. Most of all, we enjoy when family and friends tell us how much they like coming to our log home in Shell Knob. This makes it all worthwhile.
Why the Owner Chose Shell Knob:
While growing up in St. Louis, MO, we spent many family vacations on Table Rock Lake. Lisa's parents actually went on their honeymoon to Table Rock Lake 62 years ago before there was a lake. As many of us got married , had our own families and moved away from St. Louis, we remained committed to come back to Table Rock Lake every summer for a family reunion. This tradition continued over the past 31 years. As our parents grow older, we wanted to build a place of our own that everyone could enjoy. We chose Shell Knob because of its beauty and rural feel. We also wanted to build a log home with enough property to give us privacy. The end result, we couldn't be happier ! What a beautiful and charming area to live and we love our log home and property. After almost 5 years of coming up to Shell Knob from Houston, we can't wait for our next visit. We hope you enjoy our home and get as much pleasure from it as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
As you drive down the gravel road to our log home you will approach a small pond. The sounds from the frogs at night, especially after a rain, are magnificant. Michael, our middle son, named it the 'Chorus Pond'. There are several paths that we cleared on the 12 acre property to take leisurely walks through the woods. The slow gradual slope of the backyard provides for an easy walk to the lake. We also enjoy building a campfire in the evenings in front of the house. This is a great place to sit back with a drink and look at the stars on a clear, cool evening. The boys like to ski and wake board with their friends and cousins. There are some great rock cliffs to jump off near the Big M Marina and a rope swing under the Shell Knob bridge. The small town of Shell Knob has everything you need. Groceries, shopping, hardware store, dining, golf, etc. Our favorite place to eat is at the Steak Inn located just south of the bridge. Nice place if you need a break from the kitchen. Also, the Pizza Hut in town is great, If you have a boat, you can dock it on the lake and walk up. Icy Mays in town is also good for breakfast or lunch. Have fun !!!
