About Tabitha (TJG Lake Properties LLC)

As a family with 4 young boys, we needed a place where they could safely run and play. We've owned the cabin almost 7 years now. We live in Wichita, KS but we're in Springfield, MO enough for my husband's job we were tired of renting something every time we visited Table Rock Lake. We love it here when we can escape and wanted to share it with others and hope they like it as much as we do. We bring our Lab along with us. He loves being able to run free, but mostly enjoyed his walks and napping under the trees. He sleeps in his kennel on the patio (not allowed inside). We know you will enjoy the cabin as much as we do - Relax and Unwind!

Tabitha (TJG Lake Properties LLC) purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Tabitha (TJG Lake Properties LLC) chose Shell Knob

We grew up in Florida and miss the water. Decided this is someplace we hope to pass down to our boys and enjoy family gatherings here for many years to come. After viewing many homes in Shell Knob, it was hard to beat this easy walk down to the water in our own backyard AND the privacy.

What makes this cabin unique

Nature at it's best with modern amenities. A true getaway and your Home Away from Home.

A true Cabin in the Woods yet 15 minutes and your at the Shell Knob bridge and local grocery store.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My daughters and I really enjoyed our weekend at your beautiful cabin. The furnishings were so comfortable and beautiful, we felt right at home. We loved sitting outside enjoying the beautiful view. It made our yearly 'girls trip' perfect... Thank you!!!

Rang in the New Year right!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our two families. We drove up from Louisiana and stayed for a long New Year's weekend. Our two families, one of 5 and one of 4, had a wonderful time. We left the cabin one day and drove over to Eureeka Springs and Dogwood Canyon, but spent the rest of the time inside the cabin putting together puzzles and playing board games due to the below freezing temperatures. We are already planning a trip back in the summer.

Very rustic

  • 4 of 5

It was great for the price. Drive into town was a little far but we knew that before hand. Wished there would have been WiFi and cable tv. Other than that it was very nice place to stay.

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at our cabin. There were some very serious recent health issues in our family so I apologize for delay in responding. The post-Christmas cold snap that brought 0 degrees to the area was very, very unusual. It is truly our "getaway" while being 15 minutes from the Shell Knob bridge and grocery.

Too cold

  • 1 of 5

Wood burning stove didn't work. Mini kitchen microwave didn't work. Had to go downstairs for working equipment and what with my neuropathy it made things difficult. Hot water wasnt enough for one bath let alone for three of us. We left early, 2 days on christmas, and checked into a hotel for warmth and enough hot water.

No signal for phones but that's ok. The property is beautiful just all the little things added up. They did provide 2 space heaters but it barely kept the house warm enough. And with the thermostat restrictions you couldn't turn the heat up enough to compensate.

Overall not satisfied.

Tried to contact the owner as well via phone and email but never got a response back until a few days later. I understand it was the holidays but this was all kind of important.

I wouldn't stay here again.

Very quiet and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Great location on a cove of the lake. Walk down to the lake is alittle steep but not bad. The house is nice and well kept and the only problems encountered were:

only 1/2 roll of paper towels ( no extras anywhere)

only 1 extra roll of toilet paper ( we didn't run out but there were only 2 of us)

Door knob on bathroom kept falling off

Nothing serious, but if we had a larger family it would have been a REAL problem.

We did also notice some mouse droppings in a couple places.

Overall, a very nice place and was very relaxing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our lake home. As our cabin is nestled in a wooden area, we struggle with a few mice. We have the home treated regularly with Terminix and leave out multiple mouse traps but still find droppings too.! It drives us crazy! Toilet paper is left out for the number of guests so there should always be adequate toilet paper for the registered guests. A recent guest knocked the knob off and we have not been able to find the pin or have it replaced yet. We will review these items with the caretaker, thank you again for informing us of anything that needs further attention. We hope you had a peaceful and relaxing stay.

Great spot with little traffic on the lake or land

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at Wildwood. Great lake access and easily beached the boats behind the house for the week. Fishing good as expected and secluded but not hard to get too. Driveway is definitely 4 wheel drive if pulling trailer though.
