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

A peaceful clean place to stay that is close to Reelfoot Lake and Discovery Park in Union City. First off don't confuse this with a fisherman's cabin that is rundown, this is a well kept home that absolutely is a fishermans' dream. The ice maker would be a huge plus in summer. Highly recommended.
For the record I have been a permanent paraplegic for 14 years. Only part of the property I couldn't get to was the kitchen/dining area. I had access to the grill, the porch, the deck over the water, the couches, both exits, the master bedroom, master bathroom was not designed for a paraplegic but I could shower, use the toilet, access the stink and roll around the property all by myself without the need of assistance. I'm in a manual wheelchair but a powerchair will do just fine as well. A three wheel powerchair will not fare as well in the bathroom area. Other than that I can't complain if I wanted to. Be warned THERE IS NO AT&T CELLPHONE SIGNAL!!! Unless you stand in exact spots, but that's the point when going to a place like this TO GET A WAY!! They do have wifi though so don't worry you're not completely cutoff. A plus about not being able to reach the kitchen was that I didn't have to dishes!! They also have a washer and dryer which was unacessable by wheelchair. By the way I was down there during January on a duck and goose hunt so the gas fireplace worked out very nicely along with central air and heat. It's three houses down or about 100 feet from the end of the dead end road so pets could run around and young kiddo's can ride their bikes with little to no supervision given the children's age of course.
This is the best place to stay on Reelfoot Lake. Bayou Bungalow was clean with everything we needed for our trip. Lot of room, great internet, Directv, and everything you would expect. We will be back!
What a beautiful place to really get away from it all! Carole and Bob have thought of everything. The house is absolutely everything we had hoped for, and more. It was great to have a kitchen that is so well equipped, and the house truly has all the comforts of home. The back deck is beautiful, as are all of the flowers and shrubs. The ice machines would've been great, had we caught more fish. Guess it's just a bit too early. Next time we will know better. Thanks to both of you, for a wonderful week. It was great!
The Hosts were friendly and left you alone although they live right next door so if you need anything they are available. The place was very nice inside and out. The fishing could have been better off the dock but the water was low and two many trees for more than about two people to fish at one time without the rods getting tangled. Very quiet and peaceful. The bond fire pit was nice. Two things that could improve the place would be if you enclosed the porch area due to the bugs and put a hot tub on the porch.
Overall we had a great time and the house was very nice, well stocked with the usual supplies especially ice, it was roomy and clean. The only thing I wish had been better was the WIFI.
Arts & Craft Fair (1st weekend in October) or Just Relaxation, Be sure to do the the Grassy Island Tour, a drive during day light hours from the Bungalow with a breath taking view of natural wildlife at it's best, At the end of the Grassy Island is another boat launch that will take you to other great fishing spots. Reelfoot Lake waterfowl festival in October.
