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.

Book Now.

Just far enough off the beaten path to remind you of what is most important in life.

  • 5 of 5

I can't explain how much I needed to get away. I haven't personally had a vacation in countless years. Carole and "57" provide you with all the amenities minus any consumables you may require. No, there isn't any cell service but that simply enabled me to tune out the constant static of everyday madness which is exactly what I wanted.

The house is so clean you will make it a habit to remove your shoes upon entry as if you were home. There is Direct TV to check the news and weather along with Wi-Fi if you even care to log on.

Bob let me get settled and then came and asked if there was anything else I needed and that he was easy to find if I did. Yes I am a bit domesticated and the HVAC worked flawlessly.

After a quick grocery trip for the essentials I made nightly use of the fire pit with swing away cooking grate for grilling. I opted for kebobs mostly which were phenomenally cooked with the split bbqn wood I brought with me. I do thoroughly enjoy grilling of any kind and the fire pit made it effortless.

If you plan on any after dark activities don't for get the deepwoods off as this is a wetland area.

I rented a local jon boat and spent nearly...every daylight hour fishing. I caught decent TN largemouth and stayed well hydrated:) the entirety of my getaway.

I know there is a cleaning service upon departure though I deemed it necessary to keep up with the laundry, dishes, and trash so Cindy wouldn't have to miss too much time with her grandbabies. I'm telling you all this in detail so you understand how it's an extremely family oriented environment which I plan on sharing the experience with my son when he gets old enough.

Watching Bob feed the catfish was fun. They sure do anticipate his daily presence and put on quite the feeding frenzy filled show.

If you need to getaway and would like to have the space as if you were home this is the place.

Bob and Carole I greatly appreciate the comfortable stay and will talk to you again soon.

Great Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Three of us stayed for three nights and we loved it. It was a girl's getaway weekend and that's what we did and enjoyed every minute of it. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the cell phone service was not good at all. We hope to go back again one day. Thanks Bob and Carole!
