Lupin Lodge Nude Recreation Facilities
Lupin offers a multitude of recreational choices. We have a swimming pool, multi-level sundeck for nude sunbathing, hot tub, sauna, volleyball court, tennis court, hiking trails, basketball net, tether-ball, children’s playground, table tennis, books, puzzles, board games and cable TV in the clubhouse lounge for rainy days and special events.
Though daytime recreation is mostly unstructured, during the April through October prime season Lupin hosts a monthly Volleyball Tournament Weekend, open to member and non-member competitive players at a “B” level or higher. Men’s, women’s and coed teams are formed to achieve a balance of skill and fun with the winning team members earning two scoops each of their favorite ice cream.
Lupin is above all an outdoor experience, a perfect place to kick back and enjoy clear mountain air while communing with nature–just far enough from urban “civilization” to forget about its stresses but close enough for convenient access. For reading, relaxing or socializing there are multiple lawns and decks on different levels, each with unique scenery. Lounging choices include both sun and shade. The trees are quite varied and magnificent.
No visit is complete without a rejuvenating hike on Lupin’s nature trail, which combines a spectacular overview of the San Andreas Fault with a backdrop of Santa Cruz Mountain coastal redwoods, features a broad array of verdant Northern California flora and provides a vigorous, aerobic workout or a leisurely climb, depending on one’s pace. Lupin’s mostly undeveloped acreage is habitat for wildlife of many species in addition to naked homo sapiens.
Food, Art, and Entertainment
The Lupin Clubhouse Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, beverages and snacks daily for a variety of tastes and budgets. Vegetarians, omnivores and kids can all find appealing choices on the basic menu, while gourmets can look to the head chef’s specials for something more exotic.
The wine list features selections of local Santa Cruz Mountain and regional Northern California labels. Other beverages available include beers, natural juices, espressos, teas, soft drinks, seltzers and bottled waters.
The informal dining ambiance engages all the senses. The well-sited building has many windows to bring the outdoors in when it’s warm and is heated enough to go nude when it’s not. Besides spacious indoor seating, it also offers deck tables with a stunning sunset view and umbrella-shaded patio tables overlooking an expansive lawn bordered with natural stone landscaping and surrounded by large oaks and Monterey pines.
The restaurant walls contain the Lupin Art Gallery, featuring periodic showings of selective Bay Area artists and photographers, including some among the membership. Depending upon the evening event scheduled, this flexible structure can also become theater, concert hall, dance club, meeting room, or clubhouse.
