spaces and accommodations
make yourself at home
Waldemar’s signature architecture is fashioned from local stone, artisan tile, cedar, and hand-forged iron details. Choose from sun-drenched meeting rooms or informal riverside gathering spots. With both indoor and outdoor spaces, we offer a departure from the normal.
Historic Dining Hall
Elevated cuisine in a historic setting
Architectect Harvey P. Smith’s appreciation of Waldemar’s natural beauty inspired his vision and design of the Waldemar Dining Hall. He mirrored the majesty of the cypress trees in the design of the stone columns that adorn the front of this building and incorporated cedar branching into the railings. These signature features can be found throughout camp. Stone mason Ferdinand Rehbeger brought Smith’s vision to life. He had a passion for collecting the most interesting stones, which included fossils, geodes, petrified wood and crystals. Somehow he could look at a pile of stone and know where they should be placed to create a work of art, which is evident in the elegantly crafted stone walls and fireplaces of the dining hall. He truly created a symphony of stone. This backdrop provides a continual inspiration to the talented chefs creating fine dining and culinary experiences for both our campers and event guests alike. Whether your menu is shaped by regional influence or a distinctively international flare, quality is first and foremost in the Waldemar kitchen.
Doris Johnson Lodge
Nestled On the banks of the Guadalupe
Doris Johnson Lodge is a large gathering place that overlooks the emerald green waters of the Guadalupe river and the towering cypress trees. It can accommodate groups up to 275 people utilizing both the indoor and outdoor spaces. The wood and slate floors, dazzling natural light, magnificent stone fireplace and antler chandeliers are the finishing touches to this stunning structure.
Settle into your charming rustic stone cabin, or kampong, as they are affectionately known during the summer, and enjoy your time away at camp. Feel the warm breeze on the covered porch or cool off in the air conditioning. Sink into the plush, pillow top mattress and revel in the comfort of your home away from home.
What a gorgeous place! Magical! No sweeter place on earth.
