About Judy Cooney

I am married and blessed to have 3 children and 3 grandchildren. Our family has celebrated 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.

Perfect Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience staying at the LBJ Texas Star Lakehouse! The house is cozy, clean, very well decorated, and has so many seating arrangements inside and out. We loved all of the lighting outside! We enjoyed fishing, BBQ'ing, and relaxing. Judy was great to deal with and has thought of everything you could possibly want or need to stay here. We would highly recommend this house and would definitely stay there again.

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had planned a girls' weekend to reminisce and catch up on our lives. The exterior area of this lake house (LBJ Texas Star Lake House) is perfect for different groups gathering, if necessary. Our group spent most of our time on the large deck over the water. It was most relaxing! The kitchen has every utensil, piece of equipment, etc. you will need.

We went into town for dinner one night, but the other nights we stayed in since we had brought plenty of food.

IT WAS GREAT PLACE - THANKS, JUDY!!!

5 Stars Isn't Enough......

  • 5 of 5

WOW……… The LBJ Texas Star Lakehouse was exactly what our family needed. With 3 generations at the house, there was something for everyone. It was great to hang out, relax, enjoy all of the beautiful trees and BBQ.Then in the evenings we sat outside and enjoyed the outdoor seating and lighting! Judy hasn’t left anything undone and was a pleasure to work with. The property has everything you need, including things for small children.

We highly recommend this house and look forward to planning another stay. Thank you Judy for opening your home.

Family Fun, Family Unity

  • 5 of 5

In this time of all the time saving devices at our disposal, we have all found we have less time for the most important and that is Family. As mother, grandmother, mother -n-law and great grandmother we love having family gatherings. The LBJ Texas Star House was a perfect place with the big oak trees and all the amenities provided to relax and enjoy each other and the water just steps away for swimming, fishing, it truly was a home away from home. It was also a great place to find a peaceful retreat and to recharge. Judy was wonderful to deal with being a mother and new grandmother herself, I would recommend the Star house to everyone, a great place to make family memories.

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
