About the property

Waterfront 2 House Complex With A Total Of 8 Bedrooms And 5 Bathrooms

When you first arrive to High Bank Ranch you will immediately see why we are the destination for family get-togethers and Guadalupe river fun. The 2 house complex is laid out to capture outdoor activities along with the ability to sleep 22 people in comfy beds. You can begin your day with poolside coffee highlighted by the sound of waterfalls and a cool breeze. When the kids get going we have the best tree swing on Lake McQueeney, volleyball/badminton, yard games, kayaks, and pool. The day only gets better in the first class outdoor kitchen built in 2016 (gas grill, gas oven/stove, cocktail bar sink, ice maker, and fridge), the aroma from the Pizza Oven, and the 70 in. TV in the outdoor living space. Plenty of room for our guests to spread out, large driveway, and privacy galore on 63 acres. An added bonus is a full hookup for RV and barn/pasture if you would like to bring your horses, trail riding, hiking and biking.

Our property is situated on the Guadalupe River (Lake McQueeney section). The river here is deep enough to accommodate a boat but at the same time not in the busy section of the river so water floats are available for your use and we have 2 kayaks. Bring your fishing poles for Catfish and Bass. The 2 house complex includes 8 bedrooms (5 in main house & 3 in pool house), 5 full bathrooms (3 in main house & 2 in pool house), 1 outdoor shower, 2 hot tubs (1 in main house & 1 poolside), all linens/towels and cookware needed for your stay, Wi-Fi in both buildings and outside kitchen, 2 laundry rooms.

About Susanne Wilkerson

My family has been visiting the Hill Country our whole lives even while living and raising our children in the Houston area. After the kids graduated from high school we wanted to retire in a small town setting that still offered some big city activities close by. Most importantly water and outdoor excursions.

Susanne Wilkerson purchased this house in 2004

Why Susanne Wilkerson chose New Braunfels

We were always drawn to New Braunfels. The people here are honest and friendly. There is always something to do and the climate of the area allows for year around outdoor activities. When the opportunity arose for us to own land in such a beautiful setting we were thrilled. We have put a lot of work and sweat into building our dream ranch.

What makes this house unique

Lake McQueeney is a hidden gem. You can drive into town and float the Guadalupe River in many locations but our section of the river is peaceful and serene. The tree swing is quintessential hill country and being able to put the Kayaks in the water for a leisure ride upstream is by far my most favorite happy place.

High Bank Ranch is an AMAZING property - I can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our experience at High Bank Ranch was incredible. The kitchen is well stocked with pots/pans. There is firewood on site. There is an awesome rope swing + kayaks for exploring the river. There is ample sleeping room + space for an air mattress or 2 if your bunk configuration doesn't work with what exists. The heated pool & hot tub was critical for us as we were there over new years. I highly recommend this property. Thanks for the awesome time :) cant wait to come back

Beautiful property with amazing outside venues.

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion/birthday party and the accommodations allowed for our large family to meet and play together. The outdoor amenities were amazing and the support and response from the owners was absolutely phenomenal. If you want to host a large group with room to play and enjoy the beautiful outdoors this is the place!

Wife's 40th birthday, amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for my wife's birthday with six other couples. The home is absolutely amazing and the outdoor living space is perfection. We enjoyed cooking out and the rope swing was a favorite for everyone. We definitely plan to return with our children next time. This will be an amazing rental with other families. Very convenient for tubing the Guadalupe or Comal rivers. The owners were very responsive, helpful and even left a bottle of wine for my wife's birthday. I highly recommend the Guadalupe River Ranch for couples or families; you will not be disappointed.

In the heart of Texas Hill Country, New Braunfels is conveniently located and has an abundance of life. Water adventures on the Guadalupe and the Comal continue to drive tourism and the proximity to Canyon Lake provides a haven of water activities from tubing and rafting to fishing and kayaking. If its a water park you are looking for there is world famous Schlitterbahn. Music is plentiful from Gruene Hall to the American Music Jam. We are home to Texas' oldest baker, oldest dance hall, and Wurstfest (an annual 10-day salute to sausage and our German heritage). If you are in the mood for shopping, there is the outlets in San Marcos or antiques and boutiques in downtown New Braunfels. The scenery is picturesque and bring your camera for Landa Park. If a little adventure is needed check out Natural Bridge Caverns and drive-thru safari which is only 18 miles away.
