Green Acres is a family owned business operated by Wayne and Lisa Green. Our Fishing Lodge offers lodging for couples, families, and small groups (bass clubs, family reunions, weekend get a ways, golfers, boaters, bird watchers, etc). We are now offering four different types of accommodations. The Bird’s Nest Cabin is great for couple, small families, or a group of friends. The Tiger’s Den Cabin is perfect for someone traveling alone or for two people. The Rooster’s Roost is a fantastic facility for larger families or slightly larger groups (has great outside covered grilling patio). Finally, the Bed and Breakfast is a guilty pleasure if you want to be catered to, including a full country breakfast. To find out more about each unit, to contact us, or to see our rates please hit the link at the top of the page. We look forward to having you as our guest here at Green Acres Fishing Lodge and Bed & Breakfast.
We are located in the Mid-Lake area of the Toledo Bend Reservoir off of the San Miguel Bay near Zwolle, Louisiana. We are a small operation where you and your family or a group of friends might be the only ones on this sixteen acre waterfront property during your entire stay.
Our goal is to offer you clean, safe, secure (gated property), and comfortable accommodations so you can enjoy your time here on the lake. Additionally, our goal is to have you come back and stay with us again.
Hopefully you will find everything you need on this site, if not, we are here to answer any of your questions.
Sorry, there is no smoking indoors and no pets allowed at the Green Acres Fishing Lodge and Bed & Breakfast.
We have been married for 33 years and before moving to Toledo Bend we lived in southern Louisiana for over 11 years in Mandeville (near New Orleans). We moved to Toledo Bend in 2009 to “retire” and enjoy the fishing and boating here on the lake. Lisa is a great cook but we both miss some of the great restaurants in New Orleans.
We have two boys; our first born is Nathan (a.k.a. Rooster) who is the name sake for the “Rooster’s Roost” facility. Nathan attended LSU/Baton Rouge and finished his BSN degree in May 2013 at the LSU Health Sciences Center, School of Nursing in New Orleans. Nathan worked as an RN in the ER and ICU at West Jeff Hospital in New Orleans. He married a New Orleans girl, Lauren, in September of 2019 she is also a nurse. Both Nathan and Lauren have been working as Traveling Nurses for the past couple of years. Our second born is Jason (a.k.a. Bird), the name sake for the “Bird’s Nest” Cabin. Jason also attended LSU/Baton Rouge and the LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans; he graduated in December of 2013 with a BSN degree. After working as an ER Nurse for a few years Jason returned to LSU to get his Doctorate in Nursing Practice and graduated in May of 2019. Jason is a Captain in the U.S. Army serving as a Nurse Practioner stationed in San Antonio, TX. Jason married a girl from Alabama (I know but we still love her) in November of 2019 who is also a Nurse Practioner. We are now waiting for some grandchildren hopefully in the near future.
As you can see, both young men are interested in the health care industry and hopefully will take care of Mom and Dad in our retirement. When they are here visiting you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Nathan or Jason and their wives, they will either have a fishing pole in hand (heading to their favorite fishing hole) or on their way to the swimming hole.
