Securely nestled in a quiet gated neighborhood on cobblestone streets, there is a sophisticated yet comfortable home. It features brick cupula ceilings, custom paint and furnishings throughout.

Clothing Optional ‐ We realize our guests want choices and that is why we are clothing optional. Our philosophy is based on common sense. If it is cool in the evening, you are welcome to wear clothes. You have the freedom to wear a shirt, cover‐up or bathrobe. You have the option to wear something when you eat a meal. If this is your first time at a clothing optional resort, you may wear something until you are more comfortable. Nudists are also very happy because they can be nude 100% of the time.
NOTE: All quoted rates are in US Dollars
