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 Reelfoot Lake

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.

Anniversary trip

  • 5 of 5
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 Newton Family

  • 3 of 5
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.

First Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This stay was more than we anticipated. The only downside to the entire experience for myself, my spouse, and my 6 children were the mosquitoes. We were able to enjoy the lake as well as the luxury of being home. The location was remote yet there were enough activities within a reasonable drive to enjoy. We will definitely be scheduling annual Family Vacations.

The place is grate

  • 5 of 5
Its real clean and Bob and Carole are grate. The fishing on the lake wasn't so good but we were late in the season and I don't think I did my home work about how to catch the Bream so late in the year. I think you can just stay there and catch catfish all day if you wanted to.
Its everything they say it is in the add and more very quite and relaxing loved it. will be going back for some crappie fishing.
