About the property

5+ Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 16-18 comfortably

Whether you want to relax inside or outside, hang out with your pals in the gameroom, paddleboat on the lake or go fishing off the dock – there really is something for everyone at this wonderful waterfront retreat.

This home is perfect for large groups/retreats, as it can comfortably sleep 16-18 comfortably in beds. You can also utilize a full sized futon and pull-out sofa bed for additional sleeping.

The gameroom has a large pool table, foosball table, kid/adult games, and TV with couch and sofa sleeper – plus bar area for additional entertaining. It also has a door that can be closed off from the main living room. The living room seats 6 and has a TV. The “kids” room upstairs sleeps six with the futon bunk beds, which can fold up into couches in the daytime. The master bedroom and guest room is also upstairs. There is a very large master closest that longer-term guests will love. Two outdoor covered patios provide plenty of shade and places to relax. One leads to the large one connecting to the guest house. The guest house has two bedrooms, a bathroom, plus a main “living space” that is used as a third bedroom with a twin trundle bed, sleeping six people total. Guests are also welcome to use the two kayaks, fire pit and grill. (Guests responsible for providing firewood and propane)

There’s nothing like sitting around the fire at the lake and making memories, and the fire pit is perfect for that! The kitchen is fully stocked with what you need to cook. Just bring your food and drinks!

Located on the quiet northwest side of Eagle Mountain Lake, this house offers convenient access to shopping and local attractions while providing a relaxing getaway in a quiet neighborhood between Azle and Boyd. We are eight minutes from stores and restaurants in Azle, just five minutes from A&M Gardens, 30 minutes from Texas Motor Speedway, 40 minutes from downtown Fort Worth, and 45 minutes from DFW International Airport.

About Rachel Cosby

We enjoy spending time with our family, traveling, playing sports -- and of course, spending time at our lake house when we can!

Rachel Cosby purchased this house in 2010

Why Rachel Cosby chose Texas

We have friends that live down the street, which introduced us to Eagle Mountain and idea of buying a lake house. I like the calmness of the north end, which is great for sking/wakeboarding and tubing for the younger kids. We also had the opportunity to take an older home that had great bones and turn it into something that we could make a great home for entertaining that our big family could enjoy. It's what has brought us even closer together over the last few years. We've had some many good memories in this house!

What makes this house unique

We say great opportunity with this house, to convert an old garage into a guest house and to create better entertaining space outdoors and indoors. We did as much for everyone else as we did for ourselves. It makes us happy when others are having fun.

Wonderful lake house for families or large groups!

  • 5 of 5

We had several families stay here together over Labor Day weekend and it was great! The house is very well stocked with all kitchen utensils and gadgets that you could need! There were lots of yard toys and life jackets to borrow and a spacious lawn to play in. We had a great time!

Had a blast!

  • 4 of 5

The property was exactly as described. We had a family wedding and had a lot of activity with lots of showers. Plenty of bathrooms, bedrooms and lots of hot water. Everyone had plenty of places for a little quiet time and other places for visiting. Three bedrooms/2bathrooms upstairs, pull out couch in game room and 3 seperate sleeping areas in guest house with 1 bathroom. The outside in back is wonderful. Only drawback, very little parking out front. Would stay here again anytime!

Clean, spacious, and great location for our group.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of high school students serving at Camp Summit in a Paradise, TX. This lake house was perfect for us. 5 guys stayed in the guest house and 7 girls stayed in the main house. There was plenty of space for all of us and it was very clean. We'd definitely come back!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a family reunion and already want to come back! The pictures do not do this home justice! The set up of the home was perfect-had a great game area and deck area. It was great having a separate house for little ones to sleep in. Clean and well stocked kitchen. Comfortable beds.
