Mike and Mary McClain have been vacationing at Table Rock Lake since their kids, who are now 36 and 40 years old, were little. The couple used to spend their weekends as renters at Shell Knob’s Rod’n Reel Resort. But things changed in 1990. “Mike was out fishing in a cove, and he saw them putting up a for-sale sign on the property,” says Mary. Shortly after the house was put on the market, the McClains bought their first Table Rock Lake home. In 1993, they purchased the land next to the lake home. Mike and Mary, who live in Leawood, Kansas, continued to visit the old lake home every weekend until five years ago, when their 4,000-square-foot log cabin was completed on the neighboring property.

Built by Timberoc Construction, the house boasts an open floor plan with three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a bar, a wine cellar and a large deck. And Mary turned it into a rustic retreat with furnishings and accessories, including a dining room set, bar stools, coffee tables and chandeliers, custom-made by Judie and Roger Sommer of Shell Knob’s Bears to Chairs Gallery. She also had the help of Jacqueline Sommer Pitts, an interior designer at Brashears Furniture. In addition to natural-themed accessories, deer, fish and other taxidermy that belong to Mike, an avid hunter and fisherman, also decorate the space. And more than the house itself, the couple loves the lake. “Most of our time is on the deck or the dock,” Mary says.
