Went yesterday for my very fist time ever. I absolutely loved it. The facilities were so perfect. I decided to go hiking and did about 5 miles and became one with nature. I ended the day relaxing in the heated pool as the temperature started to drop. I highly recommend to anyone who ever thought about going to a place like this. Don’t wait because you’ll wait forever. As soon as you do and you get undressed you’ll soon realize what you been missing in your life. The staff was amazing and the other guests as well. Everyone was extremely friendly. I’m hooked and will definitely return.

One of my favorite parts of Solair are the trails, and while the other Solair amenities and people are all great too, the trails never seem to get much ink…. so this review is entirely dedicated to the trails. Nude hiking is incredible, and trails of meaningful length where you’re never worried about getting caught nude are tough to find. There are 360 acres at Solair, with about 5 miles of dedicated, wooded trails (much more if counting resort roads too). The hiking trails are a great option for exercise, serenity, social distancing, or first time nudists looking for a quiet place to adjust. There are four primary loops/trails, as shown on the attached map. 1) Yellow, 2) Blue/Green/Red, 3) Bare (White) and 4) Bear (White/Yellow East). Details follow, distances are roundtrip from the trailhead (TH) or Pool Parking Lot (PPL). Although you can park at the trailheads, the roads get pretty narrow, and you are probably better off leaving your vehicle at the pool parking lot or your cabin/campsite (many of which are near the pool). While clothes are never needed, hiking boots or athletic shoes (not flip flops or sandals) are highly recommended for all. Trails are through the woods, so bug spray is also highly recommended. All trails are clothing optional, so wear as much or as little as you want. 1) Yellow (1.4 mi TH, 2.0 mi PPL). This is the widest and most developed trail at Solair, wide enough to walk 2 abreast, also suitable for mountain bikes, ATVs or jogging. If you can walk a couple miles, you can manage this trail. It is very rare to encounter anyone on this trail. 2) Blue/Green/Red (2.7 mi TH, 3.3 mi PPL). This is the longest and least developed trail at Solair, at times reminiscent of an animal trail. You largely navigate looking for the green tape or green spray paint marking on the next tree. If you go 20 meters and don’t see any markings, stop, go back, and re-locate the trail. I’ve hiked this trail many times, and still have to do that occasionally. This loop is described as “rugged” which means you’ll need to be prepared to go over or around downed trees, ford the occasional bog or push through some brush. You’ll need to be at least moderately fit to tackle this trail. Hiking only, not suitable for ATVs, jogging or biking. This is also one of the most scenic trails, running along stone fences, with wildlife sightings (deer) being fairly common. I have never once encountered anyone on the green trail – you’ll almost certainly have it entirely to yourself. 3) Bare (White) (0.9 mi TH, 1.5 mi PPL). This is a fairly easy and shorter trail, running atop a bluff that parallels the camp sites and the pond below. The highlight of this trail is the view from the “top of the rock” on the other side of the pond, looking back across the pond towards the beach and main resort area. If you only do one trail, this is the one. This is the most popular trail, and on a busy summer weekend, you may encounter 1 or 2 others – but not many. 4) Bear (White/Yellow East) (0.7 TH, 1.3 PPL). This trail shares the first half with the white trail, before turning back into the woods. It does not go all the way to the rock. Rather than an independent option, I’d recommend taking the white trail out, and coming back on the yellow loop if looking to change it up. It is rare to encounter others on the yellow loop. In summary, the hiking trails are outstanding, and would be well above average as hiking trails if just in your local public park. Being within Solair, and having the ability to hike them nude without worrying about even carrying clothes with you makes it an unparalleled experience!

We visited Solair this summer. It's located in a beautifully wooded area and as others have noted, it's probably closer to a campground vibe than the resort vibes that are found in southern climes. Contrary to this being the “fault” of Solair, this is the nature of having a very short season and the corresponding smaller income from guests. Another thing mentioned by others is the initial tour. I have to say that it's rather awkward even if you're not new to nudism. It makes you feel like you're on parade for all the other guests and the resort isn't so big that you need a guided tour anyway. But I can understand that this is partially used to interview guests and perhaps weed out people whose intentions don't align with Solair's. We've loved our visits there. It has a very laid-back quality that works for those who want social engagement or a quiet respite from busy lives. We do have a couple of issues that are worth mentioning. One is the policy regarding cameras, i.e., they're not allowed. This is good policy of course, but it hardly matters when so many people have cell phones. If people want to take pictures, they can freely do so, and you have no idea whether or not people may be taking your picture. In fact, one man positioned himself at a cafe table with his phone on the table and angled toward the counter where people were placing orders and picking them up. Also, part of the property appears to share a common access with locals who are not Solair guests, so if you're walking toward the hiking trails, you may cross paths with clothed people on ATVs like we did. One of these riders was a very young guy who actually stopped to engage us in a very forced and unwelcome conversation. We also crossed paths with a clothed couple who looked very uncomfortable by our presence. We haven't been to every New England resort, but we'll certainly be back to Solair.

Hi StationaryMover! Thanks so much for your thoughtful review. Regarding cell-phone (a)buse, when you return if you ever feel that someone is using their phone to take photos, please let a "yellow hat" membership committee person know, and they will solve the problem immediately. Our visitors' and members' privacy is our #1 priority. And regarding running into clothed outsiders, our trails are on our private property so outsiders should not be there. The trails are posted as such, but I've let our forest patrol people know. And, if you stick to the narrower hiking trails, you will won't run into those outside any ATVers. We look forward to your return!

Thank you so much for your candid comment. We are always interested in feedback so we can improve. While we now allow alcoholic beverages in the pool, we do not allow glass (dangerous), inappropriate or drunken behavior, or any photography whatsover (ongoing definite rule to protect privacy). Please, please flag down a yellow-hat person (Membership Committee) if you see violations of these rules. I hope you will return to Solair, and please ask for me so I can work with you. Again, we appreciate your feedback!

Did I mention it's awesome? We've been going to Solair for 10+ years now. Been there dozens of time and always look forward to returning again. The grounds and facilities are maintained and in excellent shape. Miles of hiking trails, which I always enjoy. The people are all super nice and mellow, and we've always felt very comfortable interacting with them. A wonderful place to introduce yourself, your SO, your family and/or your friends to naturism!
