  • Wonderful vacation spot

    "This is our 3rd year staying at Spec's place and it feels like coming home. It has everything already there that makes it feel like home. The kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms are fully stocked so all I have to pack is our food and clothes for the week and I usually only take about 3 days worth of clothes since there is a washer and dryer to use everyday. The boat slip is just a short walk from the house and since it is covered it stays cool for an afternoon on the lake. The lake is awesome, no matter what the weather is we can always find a smooth spot to ski and wakeboard. Over all this is a wonderful place to go on vacation and we hope to enjoy it for years to come."

  • Would stay again in an instant!

    "We called on a Friday afternoon for a last minute rental. The owner got us setup and ready to go even though we were so last minute. I explained to the owner that my wife & I needed a break with our kids as we had a close family pass away very recently. She told me everything would be ready when we got there and the reservation went VERY smoothly, although last minute. NICE! We arrived and the cabin was EXACTLY as described and then some! My wife couldn't get over how CLEAN the cabin was and how wonderful it smelled. The decorations were great and you really got the feeling you were in the woods. My 2 boys kept going from room to room, exploring, and yelling about what they had seen/found while looking around. They had a blast just exploring the cabin and the grounds. The owners have various board games/toys under the tv in the cabinet - which the boys loved. The grounds are well kept. We took full advantage of the fire pit and made smores and roasted marshmallows each night - the kids loved it. The linens and towels were great. The beds were very comfortable. The tv worked great and so did the hot water and the heat. The fireplace in the living room is great for taking the edge off the chill in the morning (it's electric..not wood - but very nice..). The kitchen has everything you need - zero complaints there for sure. My family had a great time exploring the area (from Missouri but not been to Shell Knob before..) - Roaring River state park was great with lots of trails. We watched the trout fisherman fish and just had a great time feeding the fish at the hatchery. The best part, Sarah, the owner, had a beautiful card waiting on my wife when we got there wishing her to 'find some inner peace this weekend'. How thoughtful, my wife teared up reading it as it was her family member we had lost recently. I truly can't say enough about this place - the 100 times I got asked by my boys, 'when are we coming back..' tells me they enjoyed it too! I would stay here again in a heartbeat. No issues, perfect stay, great owner and customer service. For the money, one of the best values I've experienced. Thanks Sarah!"

  • Great getaway

    "Great location with everything you could possibly need. Tucked away off the main road for privacy, yet only a three minute drive from the marina. Owners are personable and touched base on the first day to make sure everything was to our liking, and we're available if we needed anything. If we go back again next year we will be staying here."
