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 Obion County

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.

not the best place to visit in mid july

  • 1 of 5

Advertised as handicap accessible and it is however, once you get in there are three rather steep steps up to the kitchen dining area and to the shower that is easiest for someone handicapped. The downstairs shower is on a platform and is quit a leg up and out. The place is pet friendly and the sofa smelled of dog and the vacuum smells of dog. I became very ill with allergies while there and I'm pretty sure it was the dog dander even though I've never been allergic to dogs. I can't think what else it could have been. It is a great place to get peace and quiet. Where in good weather for fishing it would have been great for that. It just wasn't right for me.

Clean and comfy.

  • 4 of 5

The house was great. It was very clean and comfy. We would definately stay there again. We only used one of the beds and one bathroom, but it was very comfortable. I was not mentally prepared for the mosquito's near the water. The 'best" on the bayou was the "only" on the bayou from what I saw. But non-the-less, it was still very nice.

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect couples getaway if you love the outdoors. It's not fancy and it's about 20 minutes from any restaurant or fuel. We had zero phone service but actually loved that! The wifi was fast so it could be used for calls if needed. Sitting by water drinking coffee, watching fish jump about, enjoying gorgeous dragon flies, and grilling all of own food was exactly what we needed. Just time to unwind! The only thing I would suggest for this place is a pizza pan. Otherwise it had everything we needed. What ever you do though do NOT FORGET THE BUG SPRAY! Mosquitos are horrible but to be expected at a Bayou. Unfortunately, we forgot ours so I will have memories of our stay for days to come.😊 We will definitely be back in the fall and btw the owner is super sweet.

Perfect choice to visit Reelfoot

  • 5 of 5

Our experience from check in to check out was flawless. The house is immaculately clean and has everything you could possibly need. The ice maker is an amazing perk. The deck out back over the bayou is superb for chilling or fishing. I did catch about a 10 lb. bowfin there. Carol and Bob are amazing hosts and shared local tips and even some bait with us. If you are headed to Reelfoot this is the place to stay.
