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!

Missy Gegenheimer or Tracy Gegenheimer purchased this lodge in 2010
Originally from South Louisiana, we have always loved living close to the water. 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 offer boat rentals, a 1 hole 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.
"I wanted to take time to thank you for extending your cabin to us this past weekend. We loved the atmosphere and hope to go back soon. We enjoyed every single minute there, the view was breath taking and relaxing. Again, thank you"
We truly had a wonderful vacation at Cliffside Cabins . The lodge was perfect. It was decorated beautifully & was spotless. It was stocked with everything you could think of plus more. The theatre room was great for watching movies & for watching The LSU Football Game on Satarday . We rented the party barge everyday. It was just what we needed to take our family fishing. The owners, Tracy & Missy went of their way to accommodate our needs. We had my husband parents & my parents who are in their late 70's & have mobility issues. That was no problem. Tracy picked us up at our door & brought us to the dock so that they only had a few steps to the peer & barge. All we had to do was call to be picked up & call to be brought back to the lodge. This couple knows how to show real southern hospitality. My family & I look forward to more vacations at Cliffside Cabins.
Our family ranging in age from 22 - 64 had a wonderful long Labor Day weekend here. The lodge is spotless, the beds comfortable and all the extra ammenities make for plenty to do. We loved swimming and catching fishing in the cove! My husband lost 4 pounds just from using the steps to get to the cove! The rest of gained that weight and more from eating nonstop!
The house is very roomy so the eight of us never felt crowded. We cooked almost all meals here and found everything we needed in the plentifully stocked kitchen.
The owners went over and above to make us comfortable and to return some books i carelessly left there. They were great to deal with. The theater room was great for watching our AUBURN University football on the new SEC channel. There were lots of TVs -in almost every room. We really enjoyed our nice long family weekend
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!
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!
The lodge was very nice, exceptionally clean, very spacious and all the necessary amenities were provided. I would definitely recommend the Cliffside Lodge and Cabin Rental property to any large family that wants to relax and have a enjoyed stress free outing.
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.
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.
