Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2-15

Trinity Trails Ranch is 24 acres of heaven, located in the heart of Texas. The ranch is nestled between the towns of Whitney and Hillsboro on Lake Aquilla just 45 minutes south of the Dallas/Ft Worth Metroplex. There is about a mile of dirt roads on the property to explore and view the natural beauty of the woods and observe the wildlife. It’s peaceful, quiet, secluded, and the stars at night light up the sky. We hate to head back home every time we come to enjoy the ranch.

This custom designed ranch house we call a 'cabin' was built in 2014 and is nearly 1550 square feet arranged in a great open floor plan. It is situated on 6 of the acres in Trinity Trails, but you can explore the entire ranch and the 50 acres of Corp land next to the lake.

The master has a King, second bedroom has a queen, and the third has a set of twin beds. There is also built in queen and full beds in the loft. The couches will work in a pinch for lager groups but is not a sleeper.

Come enjoy the cabin, use a canoe on the lake, fishing off the shore, sitting around the fireplace on the porch, and making great memories with friends and family in a unique get away that won't be soon forgotten. The cabin is about 100 yards from the shoreline, canoe only 50 yards away with a caddy to make it easy to wheel them to the water.

The incredible fishing on Lake Aquilla is one of the best kept secrets in Texas. It's chalked full of bass, crappie, and channel catfish. And Trinity Trails Ranch is set right next to one of the prime fishing spots. And if water skiing, sailing, or scuba diving is more to your liking, Lake Whitney is just a few miles away and is considered one of the top two lakes in all of Texas.

The cabin is very well equipped. We have a 55' flat screen TV with a home theater system and a number of DVDs of various genres. A complete kitchen stocked with all the normal appliances, coffee pot, pots/pans, dishes and glasses, cooking utensils, and a gas grill on large patio means all you should need to bring is groceries.

And as with any place in the country there is a great variety of wildlife to be seen. There are deer, armadillos, wild turkey, the occasional snake, and all kinds of birds...hawks and even bald eagles have stopped by.

Note: Boats can be easily left just inside the front gate as there are so many trees, a couple dips, and turning around with a boat is difficult except at the pasture.

Canoe(s): Life jackets are provided and must be used at all times. Children must be accompanied by an adult when in the canoes.

About Sean Lynes

We have always wanted to have a cabin in the woods we could share with friends and family and we finally built that dream on a very special piece of property!

Sean Lynes purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Sean Lynes chose Hillsboro

I had been looking for years for just the right property for us. This heavily wooded ranch on a lake and with so much room has allowed us to build our dream cabins.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Loved spending time with our family here while enjoying nature and roasting marshmallows! Sean was quick to respond each time I sent a messsage and cabin was exactly as described. Take advantage of Lake Whitney State Park about 10 minutes away for great swimming and walk down the path to go fishing!

Lovely place in the woods for family get together

  • 3 of 5

Lovely, well equipped cabin mostly surrounded by nature scene and out of sight, a quiet lake front reached after a short walk down a dirt road. Spotted a roadrunner, nest of baby phoebe’s and deer. Canoe code did not work so canoe was not used (2 codes, neither worked). Owner out of state but responded promptly by text or phone. Suggest his onsite hosts visit just once, if necessary, and respect family time of cabin guests. Received refund promptly.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had some fun family time at the ranch. And thank you for taking good care of the house. The canoe lock combination provided was confirmed to work...as I messaged right away you may need to jiggle it as outside locks can stick a little. But without locks canoes can wander off... "Respect"? Our neighbors only came by because you admitted to them, and me, and the sheriff, you had their dog taken across town and dumped on the side of the road...then refused to provide contact info of the family member who drove it away or even provide a location where he dumped the poor animal. (Thankfully she was recovered ten miles away ten days later). A simple call or message to me or the emergency contact number would have quickly resolved you concern over an inquisitive neighbor's pet. In ten+ years of renting, this was the craziest situation that has ever occurred. You then give a three star review over a situation you caused? You earned a place in the guest hall of fame...

The perfect cabin with all the amenities for a family holiday weekend.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the cabin over Memorial day weekend and spent a day on Lake Whitney boating. It is perfect for our family of seven adults and chihuahua. We love the easy layout of being able to hang out at the fire pit or on the patio, with a BBQ, and seating around a large dining table and benches around the outdoor fireplace. There is also a large dining table inside with wall to wall windows, and comfy couches for lounging. Whether setting food out at the kitchen bar during mealtimes or playing family games we can easily transition indoors or outdoors with plenty of room for all. The cabin is well kept, and nice and secluded with plenty of trails for walks on the property and to the lake. We love it!

Awesome Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at the cabin this past weekend. The cabin was clean and very comfortable. It rained a lot while we were there and sitting on the porch listening to rain and birds was really relaxing. We will definitely be coming back!!
