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.

Great fishing trip
Beautiful location,had everything we needed and more. Exceeded our expectations.
Relaxing on the Bayou
We had a wonderful time at the Bayou Bungalow! Very nice place to stay. Very clean, cozy and relaxing. Beautiful fireplace. Loved the décor! The bed was very comfortable.The location was awesome! Right on the water. Lake side restaurants close by. Bob and Carol were great! Will recommend the Bayou Bungalow to all my friends! We will return!
Charming, convenient, immaculate, and welcoming!
Without a doubt, the most generously furnished and equipped place I have ever rented! You really don't need to bring a thing. Bob and Carole have thought of absolutely everything -- and their housekeeper keeps the place immaculate. Bayou Bungalow has a nice, homey atmosphere with plenty of privacy for two couples. Perfect location to take in all the sights and events of Reelfoot Lake. Take advantage of nearby Walnut Log Road -- a 2 mile road through the forest ending at an observation deck over the lake where we saw several eagles right before they took flight directly over our heads! Don't forget the half-mile boardwalk loop trail though the woods. We will definitely come back to Bayou Bungalow.
Very clean, full amenities
Loved the fireplace, dock access. We were just minutes from the boat launch. Very cold during our stay and the master bedroom wouldn't get warm. Slept in my hoodie the first night until we snagged an extra bedspread from another bed. Used the full sized washer and dryer before we left. Used the Wi-Fi and the satellite TV. There was so much dog poop around we ran out of poop bags. Could use more pots and pans and lids. Had nothing to cook pasta in for a large meal.
Property was great
It was perfect for 4 couples with 3 boats. The lake was way down but we still had access to it. Boating was just stumo jumoing due to reduced lake level. Fishing was lousy. I guess it was that time of the year. The facilities was comfortable. We haf 3 companions who sleep in recliners due to apnea. This place had 4 recliners..
