About Carole Fornwald

Bob and I live right next door to the bungalow. We purchased the bungalow for US to get away from our house. We love to say lets get out of the house for the weekend, go next door for a wonderful clean bungalow vacation. We can't do that anymore, because the bungalow is always booked. So we try to vacation at other VRBO owners vacation sites.

Carole Fornwald purchased this house in 2003

Why Carole Fornwald chose Tennessee

Located on the Bayou De Chein and surrounded by wildlife. Enjoy the breath taking views of wildlife and the bald eagles of Reelfoot Lake.

What makes this house unique

Located right next to a National Wildlife Refuge.

Wildlife at it's best. Fishing for several different species of fish. Feed the catfish off the dock. Every evening around 7:00. You will not want to miss it. Remember these fish are not my pets, but do enjoy a free meal in the evening.

Cute, Comfortable, Clean and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at this property! It was perfectly situated for the activities we planned: visiting the adjacent wildlife refuge; Discovery Center in Union City; fishing; relaxing; and enjoying access to the water. We couldn't locate a canoe rental place (so plan ahead if you want to rent a canoe), but power boats are available for $50-$70 dollars for a half day. The property is situated on a quiet street of small homes in close proximity to each other on the creek side of the street (the other side of the street is mostly wooded). Although the homes are close together, the layout and landscaping of the home provide ample privacy both indoors and in outside seating areas. The neighbors were very friendly and welcoming. Loud/late night partiers would probably not be a good fit for this peaceful neighborhood. Property owners Bob and Carole live next door, but were not at all intrusive (I never even met them) and responded quickly to a few questions I texted. The home is quite comfortably furnished and very clean - you'd never know from the quality, condition, or smell that it is a dog-friendly property. Some (non-threatening) neighborhood dogs roam freely, and we enjoyed meeting them on our walks. The master bed has a comfortable mattress and high quality linens, providing a great night's sleep. The home has a large flat screen TV and wifi, but no cell reception. We drove 5 minutes to the wildlife refuge visitor's center when we needed a signal. We had all pots, pans and utensils needed to easily grill and cook. The kitchen is stocked well enough that no immediate trips to the grocery store were needed to get settled in. Dish soap, paper towels, coffee/tea/filters, salt, pepper, sugar and various spices were available. Backup garbage bags, foil/saran wrap, and laundry soap were not provided, so be prepared to provide those if you need them, and you may want to bring your own food storage containers if you use them for leftovers. The ice machine is very convenient and there is also a reach-in chest freezer. There were good restaurants within 15 minutes drive (homemade onion rings at Boyette's definitely worth a return trip). All the locals we met were super friendly. We were very happy with our stay, highly recommend the property, and would definitely return to this home on future visits. Thank you Carole and Bob for a wonderful family getaway!

Clean with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We really loved staying at the Bayou Bungalow. The lodge was clean and well decorated. Not at all what I expected from a place that seemed to be geared towards fisherman. It was so hot that we really couldn't enjoy the outside areas such as the firepit, the patio with the grill or the nice dock area. My mother did enjoy watching Bob feed the catfish one night. We loved the big screen TV and the ice machine. I was also impressed with how well the kitchen was stocked with cooking utensils, all different sorts of pots and pans, blender, etc (really nice touches). My only complaint was that you have to go up a couple of steps to get to the kitchen/dining room area as well as the laundry. My mother and father (in their 80's) had a little difficult with the steps.

Excellent Location! Great Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to the Reelfoot area for a few days of kayaking and relaxation. We couldn't have found a better place to stay. The bungalow is in a perfect location and it immediately felt like home away from home! We enjoyed everything about our stay. The Purple Martins were so much fun to watch as well!! Thank you Carole and Bob for such a great experience. We cannot wait until we can plan another visit and stay at the Bayou Bungalow again!! We will definitely recommend the bungalow to all of our friends. Thanks again!
