Happy Birthday Amy - April 3rd! (Now going on 11 years) Go to the Restaurant for your free birthday cake and ice cream on your birthday! After swimming in the warm water pool at Lupin for the last 10 years, you deserve it. No wonder you are such a good swimmer!

When I first joined it was a nice place, the people were nice and the restaurant and dances were good and fun. However, I investigated some of there broken promises and lies and acted on them and I my membership was cancelled by the idiot that almost stole the place from the Stouts and Lori Kay. I joined Laguna del...

The staff member at the gatehouse was impatient and apparently did not like her job or people. She was strident, rude and unwelcoming with a huge chip on her shoulder of controlling attitude and language use. The community kitchen had unwashed dishes, grimy dirty surfaces, and rotting garbage, several days old. The refrigerator was clean and tidy. The worst part...

Having been on the road for two weeks and with another long week of travel ahead, I wanted some down time. Lupin Lodge seemed the perfect place. I took a yurt for two nights and was able to relax completely. The large complex sits on over 100 acres of hillside land above Los Gatos and enjoys a warm and dry...

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 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...

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...

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...

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
