Located directly on the famous 'Chicken Coop': We are located on a stretch of the Sabine River bed that touches the west side of the lake and stays close to shore for nearly 2 miles. This prime fishing area is well known to locals as The Chicken Coop. This crappie hole was named such because of several large commercial chicken houses that once lined the top of the ridge near the river bank. This deep stretch of the river is has developed a reputation over the years of producing almost unbelievable numbers of crappie for approximately six to eight weeks during the winter, depending on weather conditions.

My husband, Tracy, and I were born and raised in New Orleans, LA. I am a 37 year Human Resources professional who relocated from New Orleans, LA to Houston, in 2005 - one month before Hurricane Katrina! We purchased this waterfront acreage with the intention of building a home for our retirement years. However, I retired early in order to begin our own vacation rental business. Construction of our 4 bedroom Lodge began in 2010. Cliffside Lodge opened to the public in July, 2011 and is such a success that we to added a cozy 1 bedroom cabin and our brand new 3 bedroom Lake House. We have also added a fantastic fishing pier, fish cleaning station, a boarding kennel, and many more amenities. We have been blessed with 3 great children, 3 wonderful grandchildren, 4 terrific dogs and 3 grand dogs! Please visit our website: www.cliffsidecabins.com for more information and a full list of our amenities

Missy Gegenheimer or Tracy Gegenheimer purchased this lodge in 2010

Being from South Louisiana originally, we have always loved living close to the water, so we searched for waterfront property that offered great fishing, water sports for the kids, scenic shorelines, and breathtaking views. Without a doubt, Toledo Bend was the perfect spot. We are located on a bluff, directly above the Sabine River on the 'Chicken Coop', a deepwater section of the river that is famous for great cool weather crappie fishing . Toledo Bend reservoir is ranked nationally as having some of the best year-round bass fishing in the United States. As an added bonus, the panoramic views from our covered deck allow us to see the western border of Louisiana, our home state.

The bluff overlooks the lake and offers privacy from boat traffic and spectacular sunsets every evening. There is a natural cove on our property which allows for access to the water and a natural shalestone beach. Our guests enjoy swimming, tubing, and jet skiing right from the cove and fishing from our pier. We also offer a 1 hole practice driving range, fish cleaning station, large fishing pier, and much more! Toledo Bend Reservoir is a nationally known bass fishing lake, and numerous tournaments are held here each year. For wildlife enthusiasts, bald eagles nest nearby and provide quite a spectacle when perched in the pine trees that line the bluff. Fox, red headed woodpeckers, cardinals, black squirrels, ducks, and deer are among many species of wildlife that are very common in the area. East Texas is also part of the central flyway for multiple species of neotropical migratory birds including songbirds, hawks, and shorebirds.

Great accommodations, with a BANG!

  • 5 of 5
My family has stayed at Cliffside Cabins several times and have always had a great time! There is always something new each time we visit. From boating, fishing, 4 wheelin', hiking, biking, and just enjoying the beautiful views. It's a great place to relax too! You can get away from it all in their awesome 2nd floor theatre and game room. It's fun for the whole family and we can't wait to visit again! Thank you Tracy and Missy!

Perfect Get-away!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd year here for a family reunion/get-away. The lodge is such a beautiful place...clean....well maintained...and comfortable. Our family rented the lodge and the new lake house this year. What fun we had!! We enjoyed walks down the stairs to the cove, playing bocce ball in the grass behind the lodge, watching fireflies and the eagles fly by, sitting on the back porch looking at the lake, eating too much food prepared in the well-stocked kitchen, much visiting, laughing, and catching up! The unusual cool weather in July was a welcome thing!! We enjoyed meeting Missy and Tracy. We appreciate you allowing us to experience such a great weekend at Toledo Bend! Reservations for our 3rd summer together have been made! See you next year!

Excellent Experience

I would highly recommend staying here. Missy and Tracy were extremely pleasant to deal with. They went above and beyond to ensure our stay was to our liking. Tracy was always available to assist and help out any way possible.
The property was unbelievable. It was as described and then more. My entire family can’t wait till we go back.

Great Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5
What a special family weekend! This was the third time to be at Cliffside and we will be back next year. Missy and Tracy are very attentive owners and are there if you have questions. Everyone, kids and grand kids had a great time. The water bounce house, the huge yard to play in, fishing from the pier, feeding fish at the pond, the pontoon boat, golfing, horseshoes, grilling dinner, then sleeping in comfortable beds...what more can you ask for?

Best on Toledo Bend!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second family vacation at Cliffside Lodge. Our group of 12 (four families including four kids under the age of 5) can spread out and enjoy all the amenities while staying under one roof. Two of our family's favorite lodge amenities are the media room and the well stocked kitchen. The open concept in the downstairs area comfortably accommodates our large group and the bedrooms upstairs are appointed in such a way to give each family privacy and a quiet getaway when needed. The location is excellent for fishing and for the second year we pulled in an impressive 85 head of good size catfish and white perch including one 41# high-fin blue and 20# appaloosa. Owners Missy and Tracy have thought of everything you could possibly need and their customer service can't be beat.

Cliffside Lodge is located at 4465 Carters Ferry Rd. E in Milam, TX. We are on the outer bank of the peninsula where the deep water of the Sabine River runs along the shoreline for several miles. We are on a stretch of the river known as the 'chicken coop', an area that often produces incredible early winter Crappie (Sacalait) fishing.
