Come down and relax at our peaceful lake house on the quiet northwestern 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.
This 1400sf house includes large windows and French doors that offer a panoramic view of the back yard and lake. Large decks front and back provide plenty of space for relaxation, and there is a patio right on the water for grilling, swimming, or just watching the wildlife! Another large patio on the ground level of the house also overlooks the lake and offers sheltered seating and a grill. The kitchen offers a country dining table overlooking the lake, granite tile countertops, and plenty of storage. Two of the bedrooms offer queen beds with high thread-count sheets. There are ceiling fans throughout, a gas fireplace, and a 32' TV with satellite and DVD player. A large back yard provides plenty of space for kids to play, and a lockable picket fence surrounds the property to offer lake and road safety for kids and pets.
Eagle Mountain Lake offers a more peaceful environment than the more urban lakes in the DFW Metroplex. Boating traffic is lighter, and you will see an abundance of ducks, pelicans, egrets, vultures and herons. Game fish include largemouth bass, white bass, spotted bass, white crappie, and channel catfish. This lake is one of the first near Fort Worth that allows duck hunting. Our canoe is available for your use, and although we don't have a dock, our seawall includes stairs into the water as well as docking cleats and a mooring buoy. There is a public boat ramp within a quarter mile for your use.
***Current lake depth at our sea wall***
-The lake is still quite a bit low due to the drought- about 6 feet below normal. The edge of the water is currently about 300' from the base of our sea wall. (Updated 2/8/2014)
Come down to Eagle Mountain Lake and unwind!

We have always loved the water! Ted has been a resident of North Texas for ten years, and Joy is a Native Texan. In our off time we enjoy traveling, visiting lighthouses, snorkeling, and hiking. Ted is a pilot for a local airline and Joy is an optometrist with a practice in Azle. We live 15 minutes away from our lake house in Rhome with our son Michael.
Ted Bate purchased this house in 2005
The house was located in an ideal location, with a double lake lot situated on a peninsula on the northwest corner of the lake. It provides a view down much of the entire lake, and its secluded location on a cove meant there wouldn't be as much boat traffic going by the house. The west side of the lake where the house is located is still quiet and rural, whereas the east side has already been developed with multi-million dollar houses.
There is nothing better than going out on the rear deck in the morning with a cup of coffee and a muffin and watching the egrets catching fish and the ducks sailing by as the sunlight starts to spread across the water! It's wonderful being in such a serene location while still being so close to the rest of the DFW Metroplex.
It was a perfect weekend to just get away and relax. It was a very nice place and accommodations for a great price, and I will definitely keep you in mind next time I need to get away.
We stayed comfortable, cool and the owners were fantastic. Everything was ready and waiting for our arrival. The house was beautifully done and all things that were advertized were available. When we make the trip to visit family again this will be the place we will stay. Ted was very accommodating and available to be sure all things were okay.
We have been doing a girls trip for 9 years and have rented houses every year off of VRBO and have NEVER been disappointed. This year was no different!! The house was great just remember there are stairs to get into the living part of the house but we looked at it as exercise! The water was very low but we pulled our chairs and floats out to the waters edge and it was perfect-like being in a lagoon. We had a great time and will definately recommend the house to others!!
We had an absolutely fabulous July 4th weekend! The house was perfect and we enjoyed every minute. The neighbor was so kind to smooth out the sand for our kids to have a great beach area. Simply perfect! We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you for sharing your home.
My family had a wonderful time at this lakehouse. Having the lake level so low gave us a wonderful beach for the smaller children to play on and easily enter the water. My 5 year old grandson from Hawaii who normally won't get into the water there because of the waves wouldn't stay out of the water at this lake. The house was roomy and comfortable, plenty of sleeping areas and lots of space to spread out. The neighbors were friendly and even though the dog next door barked it usually was only for a couple of minutes.
The owner provided us with a new gas grill and water since the area was under a boil order and his other grill apparently had been destroyed. We had to boil water for our stay but that wasn't a problem we didn't let that interfere with our fun. We felt bad that the washer stopped working while we were there but those things happen. I would definitely suggest this lake house for anyone that wants to just kick back and relax. It was just a wonderful place to spend time with my husband, children and grandchildren away from the stress of every day life.
My family is from Portland Oregon and we just loved the house and the access to the water. It was the perfect place for my kids to swim without worrying about motor boats! The house was very clean and comfortable. Our only disappointment was having to leave the house a day early due to the water supply being interrupted by the city. Even though the water issue was beyond the owners control, they were very gracious and refunded our last day. I will definitely rent the house again.
We had a wondeful time and found the accommodations clean and relaxing. The house had wonderful and open spaces for gathering with family - cooking together, playing cards around the table, or hanging out on the deck. The water levels were very low, but we were informed of that prior to booking. The shallow water was actually perfect for a toddler to get into the water. Joy was very open to answering all questions about the property and surrounding areas, so we found the place to be just as expected. Thanks!
