Ronora's recreation areas, trails, and peaceful natural environment make it easy to escape without going far away. We like to say RONORA is 'Easy to get to, hard to leave, in a world all its own'. Nestled on Redtail Nature Preserve, Ronora features a secluded spring-fed lake for swimming, paddling and fishing; woodlands, meadows, wildlife, pristine pastures; and miles of nature trails. Migrating birds, carpets of wildflowers, ripe wild blackberries and mulberries, and beauty in every season. ?Equine-assisted learning and team building experiences with our friendly rescue horses make an interesting and enriching activity for groups & individuals ages 7+. For those who want to explore, the local area is rich with breweries, wineries, arts, watersports & Lake Michigan shoreline. Ronora is fully open April through October & some of the small lodges are available in winter, weather permitting. We host a wide diversity of groups, retreats, weddings and couples getaways.
