Renee purchased this House in 1996
Why Renee chose Shell Knob
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 a 35/45 minute scenic drive.

Second trip to Spec's. Great Place and a Great time.
Shell Knob stay on the water
This was an easy, affordable and fun experience. Great location for boating with plenty of room for cooking for our family of 8.
Boat slip hard to get to
Pro: the house is good wiith beds being comfortable and well supplied. Directions to the location were not clear.
Cons: the boat slip was rocky, steep, weedy. At the end was a 2x4 board to walk on to reach the shoreline. Had to rent a boat slip at Big M marina a 30 drive each way by truck. For that reason we won't be back.
Sorry to hear your need to go to the Marina to rent a boat. Manager of the property had spoken with the person who booked asking her to meet upon arrival so she can answer questions and direct alternative routes to the dock. Unfortunately, the person who booked did not meet with the Manager upon arrival and went directly to the Marina. There was also a boat launch a few blocks from the property that could have been used. Again, no one contacted the Manager. Being a neighbor, the Manager is always available to assist and direct guests who stay on the property so they will have an enjoyable time as well as accommodating..
Another great stay!
Repeat stay, same great property and amenities. Covered patio is a great place to hang out, the swing on the covered deck was a relaxing place to watch the rain and view the lake. Having a slip and lift for my boat so close to the house was very convenient, we did miss not having a ladder this year to get up from lounging in the water to the dock (used the back of boat though). Judy is so easy to work with and had several ideas for things to do in the area on our rain day. House was clean and well stocked...very much enjoyed our stay.
So glad to hear you had a good time and enjoyed hanging out on the porch. Whether it is a rain day or a sunny day sitting out on the porch is a good way to converse and relax. Judy knows the area well and has great ideas for enjoyment whether it is a rainy or sunny day.
Got lucky and was able to book Spec's place last minute. Although it is difficult to tell from photos and having never been in the area, this place is awesome. Very well stocked for whatever may come up, walking distance to dock with boat slip, and incredible lake views. Property manager Judy was very accommodating and a real sweetheart!!
Thank you for your review of our property. Convenience is one of our priorities for those who stay at Spec's Place. Glad you liked how the property was stocked with condiments. Judy is very helpful and knowledgeable about the lake area and always makes herself available for questions about the property and lake areas.
Thank you again for your review. and hope you will return again to Spec's Place.
