About this cabin

This property is ideal for family and friends to retreat and spend time together in the beauty and quietness of the Texas hill country.
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.

The custom cabin design is an open plan and includes an outdoor porch with ceiling fans and a spacious screened in deck that overlooks the forest with glimpses of the lake ( best views of the lake are Fall and Winter). It's a peaceful place to sit out and star gaze and observe the night sky.

The property is adjacent to the corp of engineers and allows for easy access to the water.

The locations is attractive, as it is away from city life, it's that getaway destination most city folk crave. WiFi, is available to keep you connected but is somewhat limiting. The lower level contains a spacious great room with a queen size sleeper, full size coach. For entertainment we have board games out door games and ping pong table. The first floor bedroom sleeps 2 with the full size and is next to the bathroom. The views from the living space are amazing you get a panoramic view of the forest. The porch has large chairs to lounge and an outdoor table. Our cabin was designed to enjoy the beauty of nature bringing nature indoors and inviting our guests outdoors.

Both second level bedroom have queen sized beds for extra guest we have daybeds/trundles and both have access to the outdoor balcony. The bedroom closest to the bathroom has direct access to the bathroom . 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, a perfect place to listen to the wildlife at night. The Foosball table is located on the balcony so it's also a great gathering place.

We often get asked if we have a fire pit, the answer is YES. I call it a Texas sized fire pit, a great place for story telling and marsh mellow fixing (please keep the gooie stuff outdoors).

We also are asked if the house next to the cabin is for other renters. No, it is an added space for those who are looking for additional space. If you have a large group, this is an additional RENTAL space please inquire.

There are lots of opportunities for enjoying nature and native wildlife. You will see animal tracks and an occasional arrow head. You might hear cow mooing at a distance, they belong to the neighbors and make for a wonderful photo, proof you were indeed away from city life.

We do have a canoe and a kayak and life jackets for those that enjoy lake adventures.

The lake has opportunities for boating, fishing, and for hiking.

We have added a circle rock garden, great place for a quite time or meditation. Come sit under the trees and listen to the music of nature or the quite whispers of your soul.

    Autumn Getaway!

    Lakeview Cabin was the perfect place for a family fall getaway! We had 9 people, 3 generations, meeting halfway between Dallas and Austin. The house and property felt very welcoming and were very visitor friendly. The open kitchen/dining/living accommodated us perfectly. Plus there was additional outdoor seating . There was plenty of firewood available for the hours we spent around the world’s most awesome fire pit! It was quite a treat being away from everything, but the good WiFi service was appreciated, too. We couldn’t have asked for more responsive hosts in Catherine and Jorge. We look forward to returning!

    Perfect Family Weekend Getaway

    The Lakeview Cabin and studio were perfect for our mini family vacation. Everything you need is found on the property, plus more. We loved the fact that this was a dog friendly property. There is easy access to the lake, which we liked for fishing. Catherine was easy to contact and is available to answer any questions you may have. No complaints and we definitely recommend. We look forward to our next trip to Trinity Trails Ranch!

    Great place to stay for privacy and relaxing.

    I concur with the reviews that I have read: this place is a great place to stay for a family. There’s plenty to do, the two-story house is wonderfully laid out, and there are plenty of cooking utensils, and spices and things. My only complaint is that the facility needs maintenance. The toilet upstairs cycles on and off. The upstairs shower has a clogged drain so you end up standing in water. The screen on the porch is torn and blowing in the wind. The lights in the oven and under the microwave did not work. It’s just a bunch of little stuff that could probably be fixed in a day. Still, it is indeed an amazing facility. Foos ball upstairs on the porch, a dartboard outside, lots of games inside, a grill. We had fun driving and walking the many trails and paths on the property. Yes I would indeed recommend this property.

    New favorite

    Our family had an awesome time. Even the mid-afternoon storm was great. The property and house are well taken care of. The house is in a wonderful area and is thoughtfully arranged and stocked. The Wifi is good enough to have a two-hour Zoom meeting without any problems for us. We hope to return soon.

    Perfect Place

    Catherine was a great host. The place was exactly what we needed. They thought of everything, even things I didn't known I needed. We will definitely be coming back.

    Perfect getaway

    We enjoyed a short getaway celebrating our oldest birthday & get out of the house before school started. The house was perfect. It had all the dishes we needed to cook our meals (bonus the spices were stocked too!). The table was great, we all were able to sit and enjoy our home cooked meals. We enjoyed many games of Uno, played ping pong, throwed the darts, and hiked to the lake! Kept the kids busy and they were exhausted come bed time. Would recommend this property to anyone wanting to get away. Hope to come back again one day.

    Great getaway

    Having stayed at other places, this was so much more.. Was not disappointed when we arrived. Usually pictures can be deceiving but this place was not disappointed at all. Very well stocked with the extras and slept great as the beds were so comfortable. Such a great quiet getaway. Truly will book again. Any questions we had were answered quickly before we got to the house. Once there we did not need to contact as everything was good.

    A++ Property

    We rented this property for a family get together for the weekend. Everything about this weekend was great. The property had enough for all of us (ages 23 to 73) to stay busy and entertained. The scenery was beautiful, the hostess was communicative and helpful and the cabin was well kept. We plan to return to this property in the future.
