    Indeed they are. They were members before buying it and we see them on some weekends we go, especially at holiday weekend dances, John and Elizabeth.

    This would be my wife and I first time visiting and we are newbies and sort of view this trip as a way to dip our toe. 1) do you have planned activities and 2) what is the average age of the couples? Thank you.

    I am considering taking my wife to an erotic nude hotel where we can be comfortable walking around naked and with clientele closer to our age (late thirties). We have never done something like this before. We are not lifestyle people nor swingers and are not interested in any swapping activity of the sort. In fact we just want to do our own thing during our precious time alone away from the little critters. I like taking my wife to nice places. Is this such a place for me to consider or am I better off at another place like sea mountain inn or the desire hotels south of the border? Also what level of PDA is allowed here on the grounds? Are there people constantly watching to reprimand? Thanx
