“Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Naturists who live without pretense in true freedom to be honestly human (warts and all) in this natural environment are the most tollerant, open, real people I've ever known. The kaliedoscope of shapes ages and backgrounds as we chose to disclose and engage with strangers, or not to share anything we did not want to was a true releif from the concrete jungle/rat-race we escaped from.

Room Tip: Yurts are a fantastic nest-like experience. Tents are fun, too.

The Lupin Lodge was By Far the BEST experience my husband and I have ever had together. The people there were helpful and very compassionate. The food was great and the atmosphere was to die for. Even the animals came out periodically to join us and share in our company. We have never felt so compelled to go back to anything like this until we visited this fine establishment. The staff was professional and very friendly. Everyone there really went out of their way to help us feel at home with ourselves and in nature. We both feel like years of stress has washed away from us and we have everyone that resides and who is employed at the Lupin Lodge for their gratitude. This was a life changing experience for my husband and I and we will be frequenting this place as often as possible. Conveniently located right off of highway 17 this is the Perfect Couples Get Away. Note~ NOT for pervs. So Please Do Not Be those kind of people. This is a naturalist environment so Have Some Cooth and Respect! We Love You Lupin!!!!! Joe and Gina Janisse~

Room Tip: Our Cabin was beautifully located in a quiet area surrounded by wild life and serenity.

Had a great relaxing time. Yurt was comfortable, clean and well maintained. Lots of wildlife, deer, turkey, skunks. You must meet Maureen she is the sweetest and nicest person we meet and can tell you lots about the community and local surroundings. Food not so good. Pool, bathhouse, restroom and hot tubs were all clean and well maintained. All in all we had a great relaxing time.

Visited Lupin for the Western Naturist Gathering and what a wonderful & peaceful place to call home for a week. During the hot afternoons the clean large pool was a refreshing treat, and not to be out done by the sun, the cool evenings brought the perfect opportunity to gaze at the beauty of the stars while relaxing in one of the two hot tubs. As a bonus this is all enjoyed au natural:D
The food is fresh and tasty, the yurt clean and comfortable, the guests respectful, and the grounds were meticulously kept. As an added feature there is amazing sculptures located around the resort to admire, along with local artist's works featured in the restaurant. Also, if you want to leave the grounds there are some great restaurants located in Los Gatos along with shopping opportunities.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Lupin Lodge may offer the ultimate value in clothing-optional relaxation and nude recreation in the San Francisco Bay Area. Members escaping the pressure-cooker of nearby Silicon Valley swear that only a few hours spent au natural at Lupin provide the de-stressing equivalent of a seven-day cruise. Just imagine how relaxing an Eden-like vacation or holiday getaway might feel at one of California's most scenic naturist resorts. ... more   less
