our story

Ronora Lodge & Retreat Center is on the site of historic Camp Watervliet for Girls founded in 1934 by Dr. Henry Tatter and his wife Velda Jordan Tatter.  The property was purchased from Dr. Lonny Myers in 1988 by three friends who share a love for the land.  We have restored the historic buildings and increased the acreage to preserve this beautiful natural setting.  All our effort goes toward making Ronora Lodge & Retreat Center a place where, in the words of Dr. Tatter, you can "feel Mother Earth, sense Her balance, and find your own."
