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.

Perfect Place for Eagle Watching

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Reelfoot Lake and this bungalow was the perfect place for us. It was comfortable with a spacious living area complete with hassle-free fireplace, which we enjoyed in the evenings after being out all day in the weather. Loved the privacy of the location and the nearness to best eagle sighting areas. We would stay again if visiting the Reelfoot area.

Awesome Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a awesome place to get away from it all. The river is full of a variety of fish. We ran trout lines and caught several from those as well as off of the nice deck. The bungalow has such an at home feel to it. It is very clean and has a nice deck out back for fishing. We will be back again. We did leave later evening on our last night there but it was due to the April cold front coming thru. Didn't meet both owners but the husband lives next door and treated us with nothing but kindness. So glad we booked with this place.

Enjoyed the Bayou Bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at the Bayou Bungalow with my 2 brothers and a friend of ours. Other than the

2 futon style beds, everything was good for us. The wi-fi connection would drop out once

in awhile, and there was no cell phone service. But, all in all, I would recommend the Bayou

Bungalow.
