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 Seguin
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
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
Thank you for the wonderful review of our property. You had quite the chilly winter vacation and I am glad the outdoor heaters, fire pits, and heated pool kept everyone comfortable so you could have a relaxing and fun New Years holiday! See you again soon:)
Great for family get-away
2nd time to rent HBR. Property has many amenities for cooking, relaxing, games and just hanging out in pool or hot tub. River access is great for kayaking or boat access. All rooms and areas are nicely kept and clean.
We absolutely love it when our guests make a reservation for the next year immediately after their visit. I'm thrilled to know that we have the ranch fully stocked and ready for a relaxing vacation. See you again!!
Something for everyone!
Susanne went out of her way to make sure we got in and out with ease and was always available to answer a question or to step up to help out.
Our family gathered for a 95th birthday party and all of us were well-accommodated, from the 3-year-olds to their great-grandfather and his equipment- walker, scooter and rented lift-chair.
There were quiet places and areas of commotion, cool river swimming and warm water hot-tubbing, upstairs loft and downstairs privacy, a variety of outdoor game equipment and shelves full of books, TVs and kitchens everywhere, a friendly cow, a friendlier donkey and an evening full of fireflies...
The photos really don't do the place justice. From the first opening of the front door, to feeling the spaces and seeing them from different perspectives while moving through each area, it was exciting to explore. Cool grass underfoot, flowering vegetation and warm weather breezes were also wonderful.
Everyone loved their stay. My 5-year-old grandson announced that he wants to celebrate his next birthday at the River Ranch. My father wants to come back for his 100th!
We had 12 women for a girls weekend. This place was perfect, absolutely has everything you could need. The place was so nice we decided to return next year! It’s quiet, but still close to all the New Braunfels activities. We spent all day at the house, really no reason to leave! Great place for a big group! Outdoor area is amazing, pictures don’t do it justice. Susanne is an amazing host, best experience we have had renting through any service (and we do it a lot!).
Texas Paradise on the River
A meticulously designed experience. The lodging was perfect for our family getaway. Everyone had a comfortable sleeping arrangement. We had a great time in the river. The outdoor kitchen stole the show. We put Lonesome Dove on the outdoor entertainment system and grilled all day long. Great property on one of the most beautiful pieces of Texas land.
Thank you for the great idea of Western Movie Night!!! We designed the outdoor living space to capture the beauty of a Texas Summer evening under the stars. Thank you for spending your vacation at High Bank Ranch.
Beautiful property with amazing outside venues.
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!
I am so happy that your family gathering was a success. We try to keep the ranch supplied with everything you might need for a great stay and I am thrilled to here that you all enjoyed yourselves.
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.
