About Catherine Gonzalez

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.

Catherine Gonzalez purchased this cabin in 2014

Quiet Relaxing Family New Years

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Lakeview Cabin was exactly what we needed and expected. We were looking for a quiet family get away for new years and that's what we got. The cabin was comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed. Plus it has a well stocked pantry which is a nice perk. We spent our days walking the trials, going down to the lake to through rocks with our toddler (!), taking naps, and generally relaxing. In the evening we had campfires and made smores. The fact that this cabin is pet friendly was wonderful for us as well. We like to travel with our dog. Catherine was very helpful in planning our trip. We would recommend the Lakeview Cabin for anyone looking to get away for a while and relax.

It was even better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

The house was decorated minimally and beautifully. Perfect woods to run and explore. We enjoyed using the canoe in Lake Aquila. S'mores on the fire pit. Movies and games in the living area. Comfortable beds. Plenty of room for our 6 adults and 3 kids. We really had a wonderful time there. The owner was so kind to even leave a folding table to use.
