About Judy Cooney

I am married and blessed to have 3 children and 2 grandchildren! Our family has spent many holidays, birthdays and other special occasions at the lake making wonderful memories! I invite you to come to the Lakehouse and create your own fabulous memories!

Judy Cooney purchased this house in 2007

Why Judy Cooney chose Kingsland

My mother owned this Lakehouse before me so when it came time for her to sell it, I just had to buy it and keep it in the family!

What makes this house unique

The Lakehouse is so cozy and inviting throughout the whole year but my favorite part is the wonderful outside with all of the 6 seating areas. It is a perfect place to come and just RELAX! I say it replenishes my soul!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time staying at the LBJ Texas Star Lakehouse. The house had every accommodation we needed. Our only job was to relax and enjoy Spring Break! We enjoyed time on the lake in our boat and made great memories. Thank you for allowing us to be guests in your home.

Family Man Trip 2014

  • 5 of 5

Last year we rented the LBJ Texas Star for our annual Family Man Trip and everyone loved it so much that we returned this year. It is absolutely perfect for getting away from the city and enjoying time in a quiet cove. The sitting areas outside are great and it's where we spent most of our time. The house has EVERYTHING you need, just like being at home. None of the VRBOs that I have stayed at over the years have been as well equipped as the LBJ TX Star. Judy is great to work with and strives to have the best rental on the lake...I'll never know if that's the case, because I don't plan to rent from anyone else as long as we are having the our Man Trip in this area. Look forward to our next trip.

Fantastic Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience at reserving a vacation residence, we usually stay in a hotel. This absolutely won't be our last time, expecially for this property.

Upon arrival the first thng you notice is the outdoor areas and how well kept and decorated everything is. Then you enter the house and it's absolutley immaculate, and tastefully decorated. Everything is just as advertised, no surprises. We especially enjoyed the setting and how quite it was, no traffic noise, just peace and quite. If you are looking for a place to enjoy a quite weekend this is it. Judy, we will definately be reserving the LBJ Lakehouse again.

Our beautiful family oriented lakehouse is located on a cove and also has a view of the Colorado arm of Lake LBJ. Lake LBJ is one of the few constant level lakes in Texas which is very advantageous during this drought time. You can swim and float in the cove with no worries of a boat being dangerously close to you or your family. We also have 6 outside sitting areas to enjoy either the shade or sun. Our home is less than an hour from Austin, an hour and half from San Antonio and 15 minutes from Marble Falls. You are only an hour away from other hill country retreats such as Fredricksburg and Luckenbach. There are several award winning wineries in the area with wine tasting and tours available. Natural Bridge Cavern and Wonder Cave are just an hour away and are great entertainment for children. You can also hire a fishing guide and fish on Lake Buchanan(another of the Highland Lakes). The Tree House Bistro at Lost Creek Winery is a great restaurant with live entertainment Thurs-Sun

Other Activities: Shopping, Boating, Wildlife Viewing, Rock Climbing, Health/Beauty Spa, Miniature golf

Golf: Tom Kite Legends Golf Course and Packsaddle Golf Country Club
