About Nicole Mayville

We are an active family of four that live in Omaha, Nebraska. We enjoy the outdoors and like to share this house with others.

Nicole Mayville purchased this house in 2010

Why Nicole Mayville chose Shell Knob

When we first looked at this house, nothing was completed inside. It was just the 'shell' and framed walls on the inside. We looked passed all of that and saw the potential it had to offer. This house was definitely a labor of love.

Warm, comfortable home in the Woods

  • 3 of 5

Loved the house, the view was great. Saw deer everyday.

Unfortunately, the water had the sulfur smell that was not pleasant. Highly suggest they get a new water treatment.

Tulsa, ok

Wish there was a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and hotdogs. The WIFI was funky, worked only some of the time. No charcoal for grill onsite, suggest advise guests they have to bring their own to use grill

Beautiful Home, Perfect Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful. We had our daughter and grandson with us, so the fact that this home had bedrooms upstairs as well as the master downstairs was perfect. The kitchen was well-equipped (with the exception of a few things that had seen their time!). The furniture, unlike in some places we have stayed, was quite comfortable. We only spent one day in Branson, which was an hour away. We stayed pretty close to the house. One afternoon we found some wonderful people who were at the marina to give us and our grandson a great boat ride which he thought was "so much fun." Since we aren't really "water people" we will probably find a home next time closer to the activities we like, but that's nothing against this home, as it was very, very nice.

Excellent Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay at the cabin. It was very spacious and well appointed. The location is great for some peace and quiet as the community is still in the process of being constructed and the cabin has quite a bit of space between it and the neighbors. I highly recommend you take the opportunity to check this place out for yourself!
