[ Lupin’s written driving directions ]

“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 naturél 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. Consider a romantic weekend in a comfortable cabin, try an enchanting overnight in an exotic yurt or simply camp under the stars and trees in the fabulous Santa Cruz Mountains.”
