Chadwicke Hall -- Our main meeting hall has seating for 150 people and is fully equipped with a professional kitchen, a stage and restrooms.
Ronora Lodge & Retreat Center is on the site of old Camp Watervliet for Girls founded by Dr. Henry Tatter and his wife Velda Jordan Tatter.  In 1988 the property was purchased from Dr. Lonnie Myers by three friends who share a love for the land.  We have restored the historic buildings and increased the number of acres, preserving this beautiful natural setting.  For the health of our guests and the land, we garden organically.  All our effort goes to making Ronora Lodge & Retreat Center a place where, in the words of Dr. Tatter, you can still "feel Mother Earth, sense her balance and find your own."
