The Popular Terra Cotta Inn Clothing Optional Resort and Spa Celebrates 20 Years of Guests Having Fun Nude Vacations, December 19th
On December 19th, 1994 Tom and Mary Clare Mulhall took a big leap of faith starting the first clothing optional resort and spa out west that catered to couples on vacation, especially first time skinny dippers. And in that 20 years time guests from around the world come back year after year making it one of the most popular of all resorts out west
Vacationers love the sun. What better place to start a nude sunbathing resort and spa than Palm Springs, California, the sunniest city in the US. This fun resort city average only 3 inches of rain a year making it one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world. And the media from Conde Nast Traveler, Lonely Planet, New York Times and lots more, all recommend Palm Springs vacations.
When they opened there had never been a nudist resort that catered to couples on vacation in the western US, let alone cater to the mainstream world. They did not want to be considered like old fashioned nudist colonies. Terra Cotta Inn would be the first and they are still the trend setters in the naturist travel industry.
They wanted to create a resort that was spacious and luxurious and where nudists and first timers would feel comfortable whether they stayed 1 night or 1 month. It would be affordable and luxurious.
Luckily, a famous, secluded, historic celebrity resort called The Monkey Tree was for sale in '94. It was built by Albert Frey, who is considered the father of desert mid-century modernism. It had very large rooms from 300 to 500 sq.ft. It was a beautiful 17 room inn on 1 and 1/4 acres of land. With it's high walls, it was perfect for nudists. Marilyn Monroe, Spencer Tracy, Desi and Lucy, President Kennedy and many more famous people had stayed there (and some celebrities still come for their nude vacations) from time to time.
Thus, on December 19, 1994 Terra Cotta Inn Clothing Optional Resort and Spa was born. And it became an immediate success. Being affordably luxurious, regular people could now afford a nude vacation every year. The Mulhall's knew most people hated having to go to overpriced places in Mexico and the Caribbean. Now they gave them a fun alternative in the US. To see over 500 photos of Terra Cotta Inn and Palm Springs visit their Pinterest site at http://pinterst.com/terracottainn
