Reelfoot Lake house description

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.

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: 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.

                      Why the Owner 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.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      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.
