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 boating or skiing on Table Rock Lake. We have many repeated guests and open our house to you for an enjoyable stay. Reviews provided.

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.

Wonderful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Spec's Place very much. The home was beautiful, and stocked with everything needed! Beds were comfortable, house was clean, and if you brought a boat to play on the lake, the boat slip and lift were a giant added bonus for us. I'm jealous, and wish I owned this place myself! Thank you for sharing such a great place with my family. We're already looking at dates for 2018.

Wonderful property and location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Spec's Place and we can't wait to go back! The house is well maintained, and there was plenty of room for all of us to fit comfortably. The location is perfect, it is only a short walk to the boat slip and there are views of the lake from the deck. Renee was very easy to work with, and she was prompt in replying to all of my questions. We will definitely stay here again!

Beautiful and quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We selected this house for its spaciousness. Planned a large family gathering celebrating a college graduation. The house was very well kept and Renee was helpful and friendly. Much time was spent on the large porch. The neighborhood was quiet and great for early morning or late evening walks. The location was easy to get to either Branson or Eureka for a day away. The living room was large enough for everyone to spend the evening watching movies or playing games. Plenty of parking since everyone had to travel at separate times. The men and children had the opportunity to fish in the Cove and from the public dock. Would return again. Thanks for the hospitality.

Owner's Response: Debby, I don't know if I already responded but wanted to let you know how I appreciate your submitting a review on Spec's Place on the Lake. The serenity of the area and the deck overlooking the lake is one of the special things about the property, Within a 10 minute drive to town or by boat to restaurants. A drive to Branson and Eureka Springs for the day if you want to spend it shopping, dining or entertainment. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and the spaciousness of the house.

Love Spec's Place

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing at Spec's Place every summer for over 10 years. What a great place for a family vacation! Excellent boat slip, great location on the quiet end of the lake with restaurants a short boat ride away. The deck and the carport are awesome spots for family fun, food, and conversation.
