Shell Knob house description

'Spec's Place On The Lake' is located in Turkey Mountain West (the quiet side of the lake) just minutes from the town of Shell Knob. Spec's Place will provide you the vacation you've been dreaming of. Relax on the covered deck overlooking the lake and take in the scenery. We are just a walk to the lake. Our boat launch is just a couple of blocks away. Boat slip accessible and available. Many amenities are included in staying at Spec's Place on the Lake including a place to launch and dock your boat. Since we are on the quiet side of Table Rock Lake water sports such as tubing and skiing are great! if you get the munchies stop in the several restaurants while out on the lake . If you want to spend the day shopping, there are several flea markets and antique malls in the area or you can spend the day in Branson or Eureka Springs.

The house is cozily settled on a private cove away from the hussle bussle of traffic and noise. The property gently slopes down to the lake. Spec's Place is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen easily sits six at the dining table and four at the bar. Dishes and condiments are provided along with a gas grill and picnic tables. Don't bother arguing who is going to do the dishes because a dishwasher is waiting for all those dirty dishes.

Just want to watch TV? A video library, DVD and satelitte TV is available for you to enjoy, as well as plenty of games for your enjoyment along with playing cards.

No need to worry about not bringing enough to wear, we have for your convenience a washer and dryer; towels and sheets are also provided.

Relax with your morning cup of coffee while sitting out on the deck swing enjoying the lake view. You can't ask for a more tranquil moment.

For luanching your boat there is a boat launch just a few blocks from Spec's Place. The Big 'M' is the closest marina by boat. You can purchase supplies, gas and food and they have a restaurant open for lunch. If you want to rent a boat, Campbell's Point Marina is the closest by car. You can drop off someone to take the boat to our cove.

Come and have a great time at 'Spec's Place On The Lake'.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1996

              About the owner: Don and Renee Slinkard, owners of Spec's Place on The Lake would like to welcome you as guests to a personalized and quiet stay. It is a getaway that can either relax you by just sitting on the deck and overlooking the lake or energize you by tubbing or skiing on Table Rock Lake. We have many repeated guests and open our house to you for an enjoyable stay. References provided.

              Why the Owner Chose Shell Knob:
              As our children moved away and started their own families it only seemed right to purchase a place on the lake so we could all get together and have fun. We chose our particular property due to the lake location, beauty and peaceful environment but yet close to other areas of interest.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We fell in love with the house and proximity to the lake. It was a retreat from the hussle bussle of a busy lifestyle bringing serenity and beauty to all who visit with Turkey Mountain National Forest and Table Rock Lake surrounding the area. Beauty, quietness, spacious house, and fun! When we first arrived at the house, a lake dog named Spec's was there to greet us. Whenever we returned he was always there happy to see us. When we decided to share our home it was only right to name our property 'Spec's Place on The Lake.' Spec's is no longer with us, but his memory lives on.
