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.

Beautiful property, but very loud inside!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin and our family loved it. The home is kept clean and there are nice touches like dish soap, hand soaps, laundry detergent, shampoo & conditioner, and body wash! There are only two things that I didn't like about the cabin: 1.) the cabin has nice finished concrete floors, however that makes for a loud and echo-y experience inside! Every sound is magnified and it's super loud inside. If you (or a little one with you) are sensitive to loud noise, this is not the place for you. Our infant was constantly woken up from his naps by regular noise from normal talking, movement, or kitchen noise that usually wouldn't otherwise wake him. And we use a white noise machine for him! 2.) When we arrived (after the check-in time) the inside temperature was 80F degrees. The AC unit works great, but because of the lofted ceilings in the main part of the house, it took a couple hours for it to cool off to a comfortable temp. Usually wouldn't be a problem, but it made our little one uncomfortable enough to not be able to nap while waiting for it to cool off (even with the ceiling fan on in the bedroom). I feel that adjusting the AC thermostat for our arrival would have been a nice touch. Obviously these are not dealbreakers and would probably not affect anyone unless they are staying with little ones like we did. Again, beautiful home and we had a wonderful stay-5 stars!

Annual Friends Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time over the weekend of August 11-13th. There were 10 adults and 3 kids (7-10) and it was a blast. There were plenty of sleeping accommodations, and so much to do. We really enjoyed the semi-private lake experience of Lake Aquilla. A quick minute drive and we could take our floats, coolers, games, etc. We spend most of our time enjoying the lake during the day. The canoe was fun as well and everybody took a turn. At night it was great watching the meteor shower and playing games that were provided as well as the ones we brought. We would definitely stay here again!
