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 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 cabins.

Our girlfriend group usually rents beach houses, but decided to stay here this year so I could be close to ill husband. We were very pleased with this cabin and had a wonderful week. The surrounding woods made it nice and private and the visiting dog was so friendly!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience! The cabin was clean and we especially loved the swings, see-saw and canoe. The kids were happy outside exploring for hours. It's a fun little walk to the water and we all enjoyed taking turns using the canoe and fishing. We also loved sitting by the fire place outside both evenings. The kitchen was well-stocked. It's an easy, pretty drive on back roads into Waco to enjoy the Mammoth monument, Heritage Homestead, etc.

Wonderful get away!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Trinity Trails! There was pretty much everything we needed, already supplied in the house. The upstairs loft was roomy and had a door for privacy or extra protection , if you have children. Also we loved the fireplace outside and the playground area! It was also very easy to find.

PERFECT WEEK-END GET-AWAY ... AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5

Another amazingly perfect weekend at Trinity Trails Ranch! Part of our family lives in the Dallas area and the rest of us live in the Austin area. This is a perfect half-way spot for us! This was our first time to stay at the Cedar Springs Cabin (we've stayed at the Lone Star Cabin for the past 6 years), and we will definitely be using this cabin again! One of my sons is single with no kids ... he sleeps in the loft. The bedroom door on the loft was perfect for him ... afforded him some privacy and some quiet from the early-rising kiddos! My family loves going to the Ranch twice a year ... usually in March and again in October. The cabin was spotless when we arrived. We did a scavenger hunt, played board games, watched the kids play -- it was such a relaxing time for us all to be together! We especially liked that there were two dining room tables -- enough room for all of us to eat at the same time, instead of in shifts. We loved that the adults could all sit on the porch and watch the kiddos play on the swing set and see saw. It rained Saturday night so we weren't able to have a campfire -- no worries -- we made s'mores in the fireplace! Another win for the McClure Family! Thank you, Sean, for sharing your beautiful property with us again!
