The backyard is large with soft grass and there is a fire pit for evening fun with plenty of wood in the forest to be used. Relax on the new patio furniture on the deck including an eating area and a double chaise lounge.

Gentle walk down (clearly marked) to lake (couple minute walk through National Forest) and in Big Bay Cove. Although just a couple minutes the walk down isn't recommended for people in poor health. Table Rock Lake's water levels can vary during the summer due to the dam. There is always access but the place that the water's edge is can vary.

Slip available in very close by at Campbell Point Marina for $20 a day for covered slip. The home is one cove away from the National Forest boat launch so for those comfortable with mooring up at the bottom of the property but strongly recommend getting a slip at Campbell Point where you can have extra security, fuel and supplies and a nice summer restaurant.

Water sports close by so if you don't have a boat, no worries, rentals available close by (boats & seadoos).

Please contact for additional photos. Contact through VRBO for quickest response and increase the chance of getting the week you desire.

What a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Located on the quiet side of the lake, the Cabin Bluff Retreat was a terrific experience for our multi-generational family. Lots of room to spread out, a great deck to enjoy the outdoors, and immense windows in the living room to enjoy sunrise and sunset are all features unique to the property. Inside there's lots of room to enjoy playing Jenga on the dining room table, having snacks at the kitchen bar, and stretching out playing video games during down times. There's a short hike through the woods that takes you down to the lake's edge, a real treat for city-slicker kids. We're already thinking about next year!!

Spectacular view of Table Rock Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy the lake. The house is good size for a large family. Jim, the owner, was very accomadating. Watching the sun rise from the deck was my favorite part of the trip. It was private, quiet with a

very well equipped kitchen. The marina was only a 2 minute drive.

We've been coming to the Cabin Bluff Retreat for quite a long time. This was our granddaughter's first trip & she loved the lake! We all had a fun relaxing time & look forward to coming back next year. 👼🏼

This home is snuggled into the resorts in Shell Knob but very private. When at the home can only see the lake and no other homes.
