                                Although weather didn't cooperate we still had a great time. The house was very clean and comfortable. Was able to fish off the very nice deck and watch the wildlife. Will defiantly come back again! Bob and Carol are great hosts.

                                My wife and I were able to get away for a weekend. This is my 2nd time to stay in the Bungalow. Has everything you can possibly need. Very clean and owners are easy to work with. I already have 3rd and 4th visit scheduled to take father and uncles fishing. We really like how the Bungalow is set up. Being able to put boat in the lake and bring it right to the back of the house is very nice.

                                Had an excellent time at the bungalow. Carole and Bob were great hosts. The bungalow was very clean, comfortable, and was the perfect place to relax. Home away from home. Even though there was only four of us, we had plenty of room to bring more family. It would be a great place for a family reunion. We did not take our fishing equipment, but plan on making another trip and won't forget it. If you are looking for a nice place to stay, don't pass up the Bayou Bungalow.

                                NICE PLACE-- NICE HOSTS- QUIET AND RELAXING- HAD A GOOD TIME. SOME THINGS DO NEED IMPROVEMENT SUCH AS CELL PHONE RECEPTION OR MAYBE A LAND LINE PHONE JUST IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY. BETTER WIFI CONNECTION... IT SEEMED LIKE DIAL UP AND REAL SLOW. COULD NOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO START GRILL.. THAT COULD HAVE BEEN US....THE CENTRAL AIR CAME IN HANDY BECAUSE IT WAS VERY WARM. THE PLACE IS CERTAINLY OUT IN THE BOONIES... YOU ARE A GOOD 15 MINUTE DRIVE FROM ANY STORE OR ANYTHING. ENJOYED OUR STAY AND BOB AND CAROL WERE NICE, BUT WE WILL NOT BE BACK. THANKS FOR ALLOWING US TO STAY.

                                Owner response: I am so sorry you experienced difficulties at the bungalow. I try really hard to accomodate all my guests. With us being in the "boonies" reception will probably never be much more than it is now. Thanks for your review and hope you did have a peaceful relaxing visit with your son.

                                My husband and I decided we are going to retire to western Tenn. so we made our plans for a two week vacation at the Bayou Bungalow. We were going to Tenn. to buy our retirement property we were so excited and could not wait. Carole was also allowing us to bring our baby (Harley) our 4lb poodle who is 14 yrs. old. Well when we got to the Bayou Bungalow it was beautiful way more than we expected and Carole and Bob are wonderful people. We stayed 2 weeks and we DID NOT want to come home. The bungalow was great way better than the pictures and beyond clean. And one more plus is we found our retirement property about 45 mins. from Carole and Bob so we plan on seeing them a lot more. We miss you both and can't wait to see you again oh yeah you will have to come visit us to once we have a place on the property. Thanks for the BEST two weeks of our life. Miss you both!

                              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.

                              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 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. Book Now.
