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.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the cabin....it was cool, the beds comfortable, and any little item that we needed the place had. Neat little area in the back for hanging out and making a fire, and the lake was a short walk. Would recommend for families just wanting to get away and relax. Thank you for a lovely weekend!

So peaceful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time! It was so peaceful and relaxing. The house had everything you could ever need and then some. It was a longer walk to the lake then expected but definitely worth it. We had a great time and hated leaving. WI'll definitely be returning! :)

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic time! The house was perfect for fellowship without large group. The living area was comfortable for all us to sit and visit. The kitchen was very well stocked with equipment. The dining table was perfect to share a meal and play games. We especially enjoyed the fire pit area!

Relaxing time

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed the quiet in the woods feeling of Lone Star. The kids enjoyed the swings and picnic area in back. They also got to see deer and fawns which made their vacation super special. The cabin is well laid out and had plenty of room for six. Kitchen was clean, had good appliances and well supplied. We would vacation at Trinity Trails again. Most of all we had a QUIET and RELAXING time.

Lone Star Cabin is lovely.

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at Lone Star Cabin. Plenty of seating in the living room and a generous dining table. Our favorite part, however, was the front porch. Each morning we had coffee on the front porch, which included a swing. We looked for wildlife, and while the wildest life we saw was an armadillo, we also saw some cardinals and other pretty birds. The abundance of trees in the area made a hot June day bearable.
