Reelfoot Lake House Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-8)

5109 B Johnson Rd

Union City, Tn 38261

Located on the waters edge The Bayou Bungalow is a family style lodge for those who want the comfort of home and yet have a hideaway of their own. Decorated with the latest up to date style. With a large living area, very clean lodge you will want to return year after year. The Bayou Bungalow is located on the banks of the Bayou De Chein, a natural bayou that leads to the North East side of the Upper Blue Basin. SMOKE FREE LODGE AND NOW WITH FREE WIRELESS INTERNET SERVICE!!!

NO NEED FOR ICE, THE BUNGALOW IS EQUIPPED WITH A ICE MAKER AND A FREEZER FULL OF BAGGED ICE.

PLEASE JUST REUSE THE BAGS AND REFILL.

After launching your boat at the nearby launch you can then bring your boat up to the Bungalow. From there you will be able to access the lake and fish all species of fish like crappie, bream, catfish, and large mouth bass. Just hop in your boat and take off. Since the Bayou Bungalow is situated next to a national wildlife refuge you'll enjoy all types of wildlife. Those who have stayed at the Bungalow immediately book again for another vist. They say this place is the best vacation rental on Reelfoot Lake. If you will be arriving late and planning to fish or hunt ask for my help in obtaining your fishing license & lake permit. Or plan ahead to obtain your license via the internet. Just type in Tennessee fishing license in your search and you will find the link. We just want to be sure you can take full advantage of your precious time off.

Next door to the lodge is the largest Purple Martin Colony in Walnut Log. With 52 nesting pair you will find watching this beautiful bird very breathtaking. The martin season starts late February and ends usually around mid to late June or early July. Now is the time to plan your vacation.

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.

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 bungalow 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.

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.

AWESOME QUIET GETAWAY WITH FABULOUS PRICE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for a quiet place to relax for a couple of days and this was a wonderful find. Great value and comfortable lodging. Location in respect to the lake was very good and the owners were so friendly and accommodating. The lodge was astonishingly clean with free wi-fi. The only downfall was the lack of cell service but it was a perk for us to "unplug" I would highly recommend this place for anyone, families, hunting parties, or lovebirds like us.

WONDERFUL STAY..

  • 5 of 5
We needed a peaceful getaway for a few days.... I was so happy to find bayou bungalow. It was the perfect place, with plenty of room. The first thing I noticed as we walked in was the nice clean smell and how cozy everything was. We really enjoyed our stay because we were able to bring our furbaby, she loved it too. Bob and Carol are the nicest poeple you could ever meet, they were so friendly and helpful.. If you want to stay at a clean cozy and comfortable home this is the one. We enjoyed it so much. Thanks for everything. We hope to return soon...

Brian & I went away for an quite and romantic weekend. We both stay so buzy and always in a rush. We just wanted to slow down and enjoy each other. I really didn't know what to expect. This place was absolutely beautiful. The pictures posted don't come close to the beauty of this place. We enjoyed a wonderful & quite weekend. The wildlife was active and beautiful. The owner were great. We will definitely be back with the kids.

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
What a great place! Stayed there with my brothers last week
this is the best place to stay on the upper blue basin. Fishing was a little slow but we did better than others on the lake. very easy to put your own boat in and use the dock. Very clean and comfortable. The owners are very nice, We will return Thanks Carol and Bob
