About Tracy Gegenheimer
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, and many more amenities. We have been blessed with 3 great children, 3 wonderful grandchildren, 4 terrific dogs and 3 grand dogs!

Why Tracy Gegenheimer chose Milam
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.
What makes this Lodge unique
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.

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.
