About the property

Large porch and balcony with great room, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, (sleeps 2 - 13)

Trinity Trails Ranch is 24 acres of forested land located in the heart of Texas. The ranch is nestled between the towns of Whitney and Hillsboro on Lake Aquilla just 70 miles from the Dallas / Fort 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, quite, secluded, and the stars at night light up the sky.

The custom cabin design is an open plan and includes an outdoor porch with ceiling fans and a spacious balcony that overlook the forest with glimpses of the lake. The property is adjacent to the corps of engineers and allows for easy access to the water.

The home is designed as a getaway from the business of life. Wifi is available to keep you connected. The lower level contains a spacious great room with a queen size sleeper, full size coach, foosball table, and ping pong table. Downstairs contains a bedroom that comfortably sleeps 3 with the full size bed and upper twin bunk. The lower level bathroom has a full bathroom with a walk in shower for easy access. With views of the adjacent forest from every window and the gracious porch. This cabin encourages enjoyment of the outdoors.

The second level has two large bedrooms, the first bedroom has a queen bed and a day bed with views of the forest. The second bedroom has queen sized bed and a queen size sofa sleeper. Both rooms have doors leading to the outdoor balcony. The bathroom upstairs is designed to accommodate multiple users with its 'Jack and Jill' layout allowing separate and private use of the tub, lavatory, and loo.

The balcony faces west towards Lake Aquilla allowing spectacular views of the setting sun and of the adjacent rolling hills.

The site contains a fire pit with outdoor furniture as well plenty of opportunities for enjoying nature and native wildlife. We do have a conoe and life jackets for those that enjoy lake adventures. This property is ideal for family and friends to retreat and spend time together in the beauty and quietness of the Texas hill country.

There are opportunities to explore the property or the adjacent lake. The lake has opportunities for boating, fishing, and for hiking.

About Catherine Gonzalez 214.293.7376; Jorge Gonzalez 214.679.9505

I has been a life long dream to have a location south of the Dallas / Fort Worth area where the family can get away from the business and hurried lives we live. When a family member wisely asked us to be part of purchasing the 24 acres now called Trinity Trails we were started on our adventure to build this family retreat. Just like we have enjoyed the time spent in this beautiful part of Texas we invite you to come and spend time in this beautiful retreat. Enjoy the sunrise and sunset, the sound of birds, and the twinkling of the stars which are definitely brighter in Texas.

That is why we have built the Lakeview Cabin. We hope that like we have been able to build great family memories so too you and your family can enjoy Trinity Trails and this cabin. A place of quiet and peace. A place where you can enjoy the outdoors and build great memories.

Relaxing Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The house was great and met all of our needs with plenty of space for my family. Our only complaint is we wish it was easier to get to the lake. It is down a fairly steep hill that is not easy to go up and down. But the home is perfect.

Thank you

Relaxing weekend at a beautiful home in woods near the lake. The owners were amazing and quick to respond with any questions. The neighbors were great too, as we were able to rent additional kayaks. Highly recommended!!!
