Home Away from Home

 

Comfortable, cozy, relaxed ― the lodging at Cherokee Village Resort and Nature Center envelops you with comfort and welcomes you.

The Resort is continually growing and evolving, adding considerable improvements in landscaping with native vegetation that attracts and sustains native wildlife. Nature enthusiasts and ecology-minded environmentalists have built and developed the lodge and its surroundings.

You can hike the self-guided trails identifying native vegetation and wildflowers, or paddle along a mapped canoe tour spotting abundant wildlife and fossils.

The Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife designated the Resort an official Texas Wildscape.

Activities at the Resort leave an indelible experience on your soul.

Catch your first fish from the dock on the lake's cove. Strap-on your life jacket and step into a leisurely cruise into the nooks and crannies of the banks of the lake. Self-guided nature trails open the way to discoveries. You can grab a volleyball or shoot hoops at the basketball court.

Wrap-up your day with a gathering around the campfire.

And each April, join us at our Monarch Butterfly Nature Festival, where you'll find nature displays, art exhibits, and fun things for the kids.

Rustic Cabins and Cozy Cottages

Your accommodations include full kitchens and well-appointed quarters. Rooms are clean and fresh with crisp bed linens and towels, and floors sparkle.

Gather the Family, Gather the Friends - Reunion Central

Guests ― such as organizations and clubs — and families have long chosen Cherokee Village Resort and Nature Center as the venue for their conferences and reunions. Numerous groups return annually.

The Resort is private and not open to passersby.

The Pavilion with its large fossil and stone encrusted fireplace opens to the spacious grounds with vistas overlooking the lake. With its outdoor kitchen, it is the perfect place to gather for potlucks, catered meals, games and gossiping.

The Ranch

 

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 an hour south of the Dallas/Ft Worth metroplex. There are dirt roads on the property to explore and view the natural beauty of the woods and observe the wildlife. It is peaceful, quiet, secluded, and the stars at night light up the sky.

The Cabin

 

The custom designed ranch house we call our "cabin" is nearly 1400 square feet, arranged in a great open floor plan. The master has a king bed, the second bedroom has a queen, and the third has a set of twin beds that can be arranged as bunk beds. There is also a full bed in the loft and a queen sofa sleeper if you need more places to sleep.

The cabin is very well equipped. We have DirecTV with a 40" flat screen TV and WiFi internet. There are plenty of games including a foosball table, dart board, and poker chips/cards. A complete kitchen, stocked with all the normal appliances, coffee pot, pots/pans, dishes and glasses, cooking utensils, and a gas grill on the back patio, means all you need to bring is groceries.

The Lake

 

Come enjoy canoeing on the lake, fishing off the shore, sitting around the campfire, and making great memories with friends and family in a unique get away that won't be soon forgotten. Two canoes are provided, free for your use.

The cabin is about 100 yards from the shoreline, canoes 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 Countryside

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.
