Ronora Lodge Response Regarding COVID-19


Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and safety of our valued clients and staff, Ronora Lodge has decided to remain closed through the end of April, 2020.  Events scheduled for April have been cancelled, and we are not accepting new bookings for that time period.


Our plan now is to open May 1.  However, we recognize that we cannot predict the future course of the COVID-19 health emergency, and will decide in mid-April whether events scheduled for later in the season can safely be held.  When we re-open we'll continue our policy of carefully cleaning all facilities after each use, and pay special attention to disinfecting surfaces.


If you have any questions about current or potential reservations, please don't hesitate to contact us.  We're available by phone 269-463-6315, or email


Our thoughts and prayers are with our Ronora families, their loved ones, our nation, and the world during this difficult time.  We look forward to resuming normal business so that Ronora may be the healing presence for our guests and staff that she has always been.  

AHO!  We are all related.  
Breathe in peace.  Breathe out love.


With Love from the Ronora Team:
Deej, Hunter, Jim, Matthew, Gary, Teresa, Aftin and Lisa
