Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-14)

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.

The custom designed ranch house we call our 'cabin' was built in 2008 and is nearly 1400 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 that can be arranged as bunk beds. There is also a full bed in the loft and a queen sofa sleeper if you need more places to sleep.

Come enjoy the cabin, use the canoes on the lake, fishing off the shore, sitting around the campfire, 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, canoes 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 Direct TV with a 40' flat screen TV and WIFI internet. Plenty of games including a foosball table, dart board, and poker cards/chips. A complete kitchen stocked with all the normal appliances, coffee pot, pots/pans, dishes and glasses, cooking utensils, and a gas grill on the back patio means all you 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.

Canoes: 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 2008

Why Sean Lynes chose Texas

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 cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Celebrating Tom's 60th birthday here was wonderful. He relaxed, walked, played & enjoyed our 2 daughters & sons-in-law. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us. We hope to be back someday. The food Roseanne fixed was delicious. Thank you for telling us about them. May the Lord bless you richly because we were blessed by being here.

Comfortable cabin off the beaten track

  • 5 of 5

Just what we were looking for! This was a peaceful and relaxing stay for the whole family. Kitchen was well-equipped, and the beds were comfortable. Kids loved the games and the loft inside the cabin, and enjoyed the swings and the hiking around outside the cabin. The last part of the trail to the lake was too steep for the grandparents' comfort, and we weren't able to canoe as the water was too choppy for comfort during our stay. But there was plenty to do instead, and we had a great experience at Trinity Trails Lone Star.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry the grandparents could not get down. There is a much easier way if you keep going straight...past the more worn path to the lake that most use. It's a little farther but easier to wheel the canoe up and down. I'm glad you had fun! Thanks for visiting.

Very quite

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends loved staying at this cabin. We had 4 kids ages 11-1 yrs and they enjoyed the property. This cabin is very quite and secluded. It has everything you need. It sleeps very comfortable we had 8 people in our party.

Great Setup

  • 4 of 5

This is the perfect place for family time. The kitchen is fully equipped including a pancake griddle. There are plenty of beds so no overcrowding issues. We did not go canoeing. I am not sure we could have gotten it backup the hill. The playground was a hit especially the teeter totter.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you couldn't use the canoe. There is an easier way down to the water than the first steep option to the right as you roll it to the lake. Continuing straight is much easier but not as well marked since it is newer. I'll work to make this clearer to guests in the future. Thanks for visiting!

Great get away place

  • 5 of 5

I love going to the Lone Star Cabin. I have rented the place 3 times and it is a great place to get out into the woods, go down to the lake and just unwind from the daily grind. The cabin is spacious and has everything you would want on your vacation.

Great cabin in the woods by the lake

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Trinity Trails Ranch, the first being at the Cedar Springs Cabin, and we were just as impressed with the whole experience at the Lone Star Cabin. Sean was responsive and easy to work with, the cabin was clean and in good condition, and all in a great location on this ranch. We had a fantastic time at this property and would highly recommend it. We hope to be coming back soon.
