About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

One of our repeat guests stated "This lake house has been a great vacation getaway for our family and friends for quite a few years now. We enjoy the friendly neighbors but also the privacy."

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'. In sending your inquiry, for quicker response please provide phone number. Thank you.

About Renee

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 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.

Renee purchased this house in 1996

Why Renee chose Table Rock Lake

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.

What makes this house unique

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. Turkey Mountain National Forest and Table Rock Lake surround the area. Beauty, quietness, spacious house, and fun! Just a short walk to the dock. Boat launch just a few blocks away. It's fun tubing and skiing or going for a moonlight ride in the boat. Short distance to Marina and restaurants by boat. The town of Shell Knob is only about 10 minutes away. Branson and Eureka Springs is about 35/45 minutes scenic drive.

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

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.

There were 8 of us on our family vacation including my 2 boys, 4 and 6 years old. Spec's was perfect for us! Quiet (well it was until we showed up!), plenty of room, every thing you could think of to make you feel at home and a very short walk to a private dock! Judy the manager was AWESOME!!! She rescued us (we got a little lost), answered any and all questions and made our whole party feel very welcomed!! We all loved it and will definitely be back!!!!

Specs Place - A great place to enjoy your vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family has been going to table rock lake for the past 20 + years for our family vacations and this is the first time we have stayed at Specs Place. We all loved it. It truly is the perfect home for enjoying your vacation on the lake. We had our kids and grand daughter with us and it was just perfect for all of us. So much room, great views and everything you could possibly need. We will truly look forward to returning to Specs place. We recommend this house as it is the PERFECT vacation getaway!!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this house three summers in a row for a girls weekend. It has plenty of space for a large group to spread out in as well as a wonderful kitchen for cooking meals. Easy access to the covered dock made it convenient to get on and off the lake whenever we wanted.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. It's location is great!

Girl's Lake Trip

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable accomodations. Great home with a cabin-like feel. We come here for our annual "girl's lake trip" and it is wonderful. The kitchen is large enough for everyone to gather in. Nice large bathroom space. The outdoor setting is peaceful and relaxing. The home is stocked with everything you would need to cook, etc.. Table Rock is a beautiful, calm lake, with many restaurants (with courtesy boat slips), marinas, and great coves to anchor out in. We love going into Shell Knob to the local flea market, or steakhouse too.
