We were 80F and 100% sunny today in Palm Springs, California. It's Summer this January at Terra Cotta Inn, so Come to our FREE BBQ the weekend of January 16th to 19th.

What do you do in the summer? Why Skinny dip and BBQ of course. Summer is never out of fashion in sunny Palm Springs, California, the sunniest city in the US. We average only 3 inches of rain a year, so it's almost always nice and sunny here. That's one of the many reasons why nudists and naturists in the know, will only stay in Palm Springs at Terra Cotta Inn.

Many people don't realize that official temperatures all around the world are always taken in the shade, so it feels much warmer in Palm Springs sun.

Since it is so sunny and so warm and January 16th to 19th is a 3 day Martin Luther King holiday weekend for many guests, we decided instead of waiting until summer to throw our first summer BBQ of the season, we'll have one now to celebrate our summer weather in January.

And what's the best way to go to a BBQ? Naked of course!

We'll have hotdogs, hamburgers and all the yummy side dishes that you expect like cole slaw, potato salad, salad, and more and delicious beverages. And it's FREE for guests staying at the Terra Cotta Inn on Saturday January 17th.

And that weekend only we are extending our January room sale so You will get the stay 1 night, the 2nd is 50% off that weekend. If you are staying Friday and departing on Monday rates will be as low as $380.25 plus tax. A 2 night weekend stay then would be as low as $253.50 plus tax.

Now is the perfect time for a fun, romantic, unique vacation experience.

Never been to a clothing optional resort before? No problem. We are the most mainstream nudist resort in the US and are perfect for couples trying topless or nude sunbathing for the first time!

AOL Travel, UK wrote "Discover our picks of the BEST Clothing Optional resorts around the world." They recommended Terra Cotta Inn as the ONLY nude sunbathing resort in the US catering to couples. Pretty cool.

It's nice when the LA Times, or Los Angeles Magazine, or Palm Springs Life Magazine pick us as the best place to stay in Southern California, but this is even cooler when AOL Travel England recognizes us also as the best place for couples in the world.

We're the best because we have the best guests. They have so much fun and are so friendly and wonderful.

AOL Travel also wrote about Terra Cotta Inn nudist resort that we "are considered one of the best value nudist resorts in the world." No reason to overpay for a nude vacation any more.

We are an affordably luxurious nudist resort. And don't forget all January long, we have our annual room sale of stay 1 night, the 2nd is 50% off on Sunday through Thursday nights. And our weekly rates start at $959/couple/week. And never any hidden resort or day fees here.

Come to Terra Cotta Inn's Fun, Exciting, Naked New Year's Eve Party





Time to forget all the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy yourselves at Terra Cotta Inn's Fun, Naked, New Year's Eve party! We're the perfect place to ring in the Nude Year!

Who wants to go to some old boring New Year's Eve party where you have to wear clothes? Not you! You need something different and romantic for a change. Our NUDE Year's Eve party at The Terra Cotta Inn, Palm Springs California's most popular nude sunbathing resort and spa?

Ever been to a clothing optional New Year's Eve party before? Now's the time to go! And ours is the most fun.

Two years ago we were picked for having one of the top 5 best Nude Year's Eve parties in the world by the popular British Travel site Skyskanner: http://www.skyscanner.net/news/nude-years-eve-5-places-see-new-year-nature-intended They wrote: "The climate is pleasant in the winter, making this an ideal destination for Nude Year. The Terra Cotta Inn is very popular with first-time naturists. They have barbecue and spa facilities as well as an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, all of which come into play in their notorious clothing-optional New Year's Eve celebration. You don't have to be a hotel guest to attend, or take all of your clothes off if you don't want to in this laid-back California scene."

This year's theme is Celebrating the Great Western US. Relieve the Gold Rush days by wearing gold, or the Golden Gate Bridge, or be a surfer dude or dudette, or celebrate the golden age of westerns. It's going to be a fun party!

Every year, we always sell out. Right now we just have 3 rooms left as of Saturday Dec 27th. Yes, you can come just for the party or do what everyone else does and take a Nude Year's getaway here. If you have a home in Palm Springs or are staying at a time share, you can still go to our fun naked New Years eve party.

Above are some photos from previous parties. You will be plenty warm wearing nothing at our party.

The party is fantastic. We start by serving you a 5 course sit down dinner. Steak and lobster. All you can eat.

Come midnight, we have a decadent dessert buffet and ring in the New Year, or is that Nude Year?

As you can see in the above photos, the dress code is clothing optional. Some women dress elegantly in sheer tops, and dresses. Slinky would fit right in. Very sexy and chic. Other guests however, prefer to dress in suits. Birthday suits that is. Clothing is never required at our New Year's eve party.

Our party is held in our big event room, aka our very spacious living room, so you will be nice and toasty warm and don't have to worry about wearing clothes.

You'll love our party and our resort.

If you have always wanted to stay at a clothing optional resort, now is the perfect time. In April, 2012 AOL Travel picked us as one of the 10 best clothing optional resorts in the world and the only nudist resort on the west coast that was honored. Also the only one in the US that caters to couples. We were also picked as the best value nude sunbathing resort in the US. And this Summer CBS TV-Palm Springs picked us as the most popular of ALL hotels in the whole Palm Springs area.

We are also the most mainstream clothing optional resort in the US. We are perfect for couples trying topless or nude sunbathing for the first time. You do not have to be a card carrying nudist to stay here.

Top 5 Reasons why you should make a New Years Resolution to take a Naked Vacation at Terra Cotta Inn, Palm Springs, CA



Year after year, you make New Years resolutions that you fail to keep. This new year or should we say nude year, why not add a fun vacation experience to your resolutions. One that you'll want to keep. Resolve to take an exciting vacation at our clothes free, nude sunbathing resort, Terra Cotta Inn located in Palm Springs, California, the sunniest city in the US.

"We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing." Nobel Prize winner George Bernard Shaw wrote these wise words decades ago. They were true then and even truer today. In these difficult times, everyone needs to have more fun in their lives, and our nudist resort is the perfect place to go to and enjoy life again.

Here are the Top Five Reasons your New Years resolutions for 2015 should include a vacation at Terra Cotta Inn.

1) It's the most romantic vacation you will ever experience.

Terra Cotta Inn is a clothing optional resort that caters to couples. No noisy kids here to disturb your relaxation. Terra Cotta puts you into husband & wife mode or boyfriend & girlfriend mode. You can escape the mom and dad routine all vacation long. And if you're an empty nester, you' appreciate that they are not a wild party place where you can never relax. A Terra Cotta Inn getaway will create a romantic jump start for kicking your love life back into high gear.

Topless and nude sunbathing is a very sensual experience. The warm sun and water gently caressing your bare skin, heightens all of your senses. Studies show trying new romantic adventures in a safe environment helps maintain long term loving relationships.

2) A Terra Cotta Inn vacation is a great value

MSNBC in a TV travel segment said "nakation anyone? The skinny on clothing optional vacations." The show recommended three nudist resorts that deliver exceptionally good value and deals. Naturally, Terra Cotta Inn was one of the most recommended resorts. AOL Travel has also selected Terra Cotta Inn as the best value nude sunbathing resort in the US.

From complimentary daily breakfast and afternoon snacks, free parking, free WiFi, top of the line king sized beds, state of the art salt water system heated pool and jacuzzi which are open 24 hours a day (the water feels heavenly), early check in at 10am and late check out at 5pm, in room refrigerator/freezers, microwaves, coffee, DVDs, flat screen TVs and more, they have all the amenities you would expect at much more expensive resorts. Plus never any extra resort or day fees to pay

And every year in the months of January, Terra Cotta Inn always runs a room sale for even more savings. On Sunday thru Thursday nights, stay 1 night, take 50% off the 2nd.

Conde Nast Traveler Magazine reported, Value is now considered the new luxury and Terra Cotta Inn delivers affordable luxury.

3) You can pack light avoiding checked baggage hassles at airports

What's the usual dress code at Terra Cotta Inn? It's flip flops, sunglasses, sun block, and a smile. No more having to pay to check your bags. No more having to buy a new resort wear wardrobe. The only wardrobe you need to pack is your birthday suit and it's always a perfect fit and always in style.

4) A Terra Cotta Inn vacation makes you feel better about yourself.

AOL Travel reported The Terra Cotta Inn is the most mainstream nudist resort in America and is perfect for couples trying topless or nude sunbathing for the first time. Repeat guests from around the world flock here for fun vacations.

Women especially love Terra Cotta vacations. In society, women are constantly judged by their looks. They're told they're not sexy enough unless they buy certain cosmetics, wear certain trendy designer clothes, or wear lots of bling.

No need to worry about making a fashion statement. The only thing you have to worry about wearing here is sunscreen. You truly get to relax to the max at Terra Cotta Inn. Once your clothes are shed, so are the worries of the everyday world. You look at other people and see you really are no different than them. Being a nice person matters more than having a "perfect" body which no one has anyway. Vacationing at TCI really builds self esteem and makes you feel happy about yourself.

5) Palm Springs, California is one of the Best Vacation Destinations in the United States.

All the media loves Terra Cotta Inn and Palm Springs. The popular travel website Tripadvisor has picked Palm Springs as one of the top 5 sun destinations to vacation at. Lonely Planet Travel Guide books in their "Blue List Best in Travel" wrote "want to enjoy the best...the planet has to offer? Forget Sydney, San Francisco, or Shanghai..." They then recommended Palm Springs as one of the worlds top 10 "cities on the rise."

The New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, CBS, ABC, and NBC besides much more have all recommended Terra Cotta Inn and Palm Springs, CA vacations. Even our local newspaper, the Desert Sun, their magazine section picked us as the best place to stay in the whole Palm Springs area since we have such a great friendly atmosphere at our nudist resort.

Palm Springs is a fun resort community. It has museums, art galleries, casinos, casual and fine dining, world class golf, hiking, sight seeing, shopping, and the largest discount designer shopping mall just 20 minutes away.

Palm Springs is also the sunniest city in the US averaging less than 3 inches of rain a year. You are almost always guaranteed perfect topless and nude sunbathing weather year round.

So this year make a fun New Years resolution that you intend to keep. Give the Terra Cotta Inn a call at 1-800-786-6938. Say goodbye to funny tan lines forever.

Albert Frey is considered the father of desert mid-century modernism.

The Terra Cotta Inn was originally called The Monkey Tree hotel. It was built for celebrities. That's why we have very large rooms (300-500 square ft.). We were built with very high walls to protect the privacy of the celebrities that stayed here. We have learned that people such as Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Desi & Lucy, Spencer Tracy, Katheryn Hepburn, President Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, and many others used to stay here. To this day, we still get some celebrities from time to time as we are the nicest nudist resort in Palm Springs.

And of course we're the best not because of being snobby. We're the best because we have the best guests. They have so much fun and are so friendly and wonderful.

The party is free for guests booked into our hotel, The Terra Cotta Inn clothing optional resort and spa located in Palm Springs, California, the sunniest city in the US.

We have the party in our large event room. There will be a roaring fire, so you can be nice and toasty warm and nude at the party.

Since you can't gamble nude in Las Vegas, Nevada we bring Las Vegas to Palm Springs.

Everyone gets $10,000 of play money to gamble for that night.

We have free snacks at the party and we will give away $850 in FREE prizes including real state of California lottery tickets. The grand prize is two free nights at the Terra Cotta Inn which you get to use while you're here. This means you have a 1 in 18 chance of winning the grand prize.

This is one of our best parties of the year. It's a blast! Everyone loves it.

And everyone knows Terra Cotta Inn throws the best parties. Skyscanner which is one of England's most popular travel sites picked the top 5 spots in the world for Nude Year's Eve parties last year (and we have just a few rooms left for this years New Year's Eve party). Naturally, Terra Cotta Inn was the ONLY nudist resort in the US that was honored.

Now is the perfect time for a fun, romantic, unique vacation experience.

Never been to a clothing optional resort before? No problem. We are the most mainstream nudist resort in the US and are perfect for couples trying topless or nude sunbathing for the first time!

AOL Travel, UK wrote "Discover our picks of the BEST Clothing Optional resorts around the world." They recommended Terra Cotta Inn as the ONLY nude sunbathing resort in the US catering to couples. Pretty cool. And then in April, AOL.com picked us as the best value nude sunbathing resort in the US. The Los Angeles Times newspaper recently called Terra Cotta Inn, the "Common Sense" place to stay in Palm Springs.

And of course we're the best not because of being snobby. We're the best because we have the best guests. They have so much fun and are so friendly and wonderful. That's why when this summer our local CBS TV, Palm Springs picked the Best, most popular hotel in Palm Springs, they reported, "Vibe is just Great - Very Friendly."

Give us a call at 800-786-6938 (toll free US and Canada) for more information or to make reservations.

Terra Cotta Celebrates it's 20th Anniversary this December with Special Room rates Only $94/night!



Mary Clare and I am from Chicago, although Mary Clare was born in Tampa, Florida. Chicago is a great city, but not for nudists. You have to wear clothes outdoors maybe 8-9 month of the year We've been nudists since college and always dreamed of starting our own nudist resort. And it wouldn't be in Chicago. In 1994, we finally decided to take the plunge and follow Nike's advice and "Just do it!"

We thought of locations. Luckily, Mary Clare was born In Tampa, Florida so we knew better than to think about that state. We knew that Florida is the rainiest state in the US. Nudists love the sun. So we decided to open our resort in Palm Springs, California. The sunniest city in the US. we average only 3 inches of rain a year in our beautiful desert oasis.

For instance, just November 2nd, 2014 the Chicago Tribune newspaper wrote a 7/8 page feature Sunday Travel article talking about why you need to vacation in Palm Springs. They wrote why Palm Springs is the better winter vacation destination than Florida, "the weather in the desert is almost always sunny and warm. Palm Springs and it's neighboring communities call out to Winter-Weary travelers who want to be anywhere but home for the holidays, even for Floridians facing sometimes unexpected wintery weather."

There had never before been a nudist resort that catered to couples on vacation in the western US before, (and there still isn't). All that existed were nudist clubs and campgrounds, or resorts all catering to locals on weekends. In 1994, there were already a few nude hotels in Palm Springs, but they were all pretty small and also just catered to the local Southern California weekend getaway market.

We knew we would have to find a resort that was spacious and luxurious and where nudists would feel comfortable whether they stayed 1 night or 1 month and yet we had to acquire it so that it would be affordably luxurious.

Luckily, a famous, historic celebrity resort was for sale. 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. It was perfect. When it was first built, Marilyn Monroe, Spencer Tracy, Desi and Lucy, President Kennedy and many more famous people had stayed here (and some celebrities still come for their vacations).

Thus, on December 19, 1994 Terra Cotta Inn Clothing Optional Resort and Spa was born. And it became an immediate success. We targeted our resort as affordable luxury that regular people can afford. We knew nudists hated having to go to the overpriced places in Mexico and the Caribbean. But, there was no alternative for them in the US until we came along.

All rooms have top of the line king sized beds, refrigerator/freezers, microwaves, Flat Screen TV's, Free Wifi, and more. We serve free breakfast and afternoon snacks daily. We have early check in at 10am and late check out at 5pm and no extra charge. And Best of all we have NEVER had any hidden resort fees.

Repeat guests love Terra Cotta Inn as we average just over 80% repeats which is one of the highest rates in the travel industry.

Yet, first timers are very comfortable here too as we are not cliquish or snobby like some places. As CBS TV in Palm Springs reported this summer when they picked us as the #1 of the top 10 Best Hotels in the whole Palm Springs area (and the only nudist hotel that was honored), "Vibe is Just Great - Very Friendly."

AOL Travel picked us as the most mainstream nude sunbathing resort in the US and perfect for couples trying topless or nude sunbathing for the first time.And guests come here from around the world although mainly from all over the US, Canada, England, Australia, and Mexico.

And of course the press has always recommended us as one of the top places in the US or world from Newsweek, to ABC, NBC, CBS in Palm Springs, LA, San Diego and NBC national news. BBC has been here as has Univision and Telmundo. We've had way more press so we won't bore you listing all of our awards and write ups.

We tried to think, what is a good way to celebrate out 20th anniversary? A party on Dec 19th? Then we figured, we opened in 1994, so why not have ALL rooms be only $94/couple this December from December 1 until Christmas Day the 25th as our way of saying thank you to our guests. You can even reserve your favorite room if it is still available.

So give us a call at 1-800-786-6938 and Happy Anniversary from The Terra Cotta Inn.

Come to Terra Cotta Inn's pre-Thanksgiving event without the dressing. OK, we'll have the turkey dressing, better known as stuffing, but everyone enjoying it will be nude.

Every year, we have a fabulous Thanksgiving feast for our guests. And every year the Thanksgiving holiday sells out. The Thanksgiving dinner is FREE. Right now we are sold out for Thanksgiving day, Thursday November 27th.

However, we just have a few rooms left on Wednesday the 26th. You're more than welcome to book them and stay on Thursday for the dinner

Mary Clare makes her Thanksgiving stuffing from scratch. All the guests say it is the BEST tasting stuffing they have ever eaten. They can't get enough of it.

This year because everyone loves the stuffing so much, we are having a pre-Thanksgiving event on this coming weekend Fri & Sat November 21 and 22. During our free afternoon snack time on Saturday the 22nd, we will have ALL the FREE Thanksgiving stuffing and desserts that you can eat. Desserts will be like pumpkin pie and other assorted goodies.

So for those of you that have family commitments on on Thanksgiving Day, or waited too long to book this is the perfect chance for you to have some of Mary Clare's delicious stuffing and a fun getaway before Thanksgiving. Also at the Desert Hills Premium outlet mall many stores are already discounting prior to Black Friday.

Our party and dinner are loads of fun, delicious, and free. We have lots of eggnog, a delicious Christmas dinner (Mary Clare used to write cookbooks, so she's a fantastic chef), and Santa Tom arrives bearing a sack full of Christmas gifts for all the guests. Better make sure you haven't been naughty! You don't want to get a lump of coal.

The party is held in our cozy, warm event room, so no need to wear clothes.

Above is a copy of a previous year's free Christmas party dinner menu.

The party is FREE for all guests who are staying overnight that evening.

Everyone has said that this is the best Christmas party they have ever been to. And best of all, you don't have to get dressed up for it.

And for those of you who will still need to do some Christmas shopping, just 20 minutes away is the largest and best discount shopping mall in all of California where you can get last minute gifts for all your loved ones. It's the Desert Hills premium outlet mall.

There is nothing cooler than nude sunbathing all day long at our resort, have lots of fun at our Christmas party and dinner, and then wrapping up you last minute shopping at the outlet mall.

And the weather is usually fantastic that time of year. Palm Springs has the best year round nude sunbathing weather in the US. And we're the sunniest city in America averaging only 3 inches of rain a year.

Now is the perfect time for a fun, romantic, sunny, unique vacation experience. One that you will want to repeat over and over.

You Deserve an Exciting Fun Naked New Years Eve Party this Year, Come to Sunny Palm Springs, California for the Most Fun One!






What a year it's been. Now it's time to forget all the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy yourselves at Terra Cotta Inn's Fun, Naked, New Year's Eve party!

Who wants to go to some old boring New Year's Eve party where you have to wear clothes? Not you! You need something exciting and different for a change. How about a NUDE Year's Eve party at The Terra Cotta Inn, Palm Springs California's most popular nude sunbathing resort and spa?

Ever been to a clothing optional New Year's Eve party before? Now's the time to go! And ours is the most fun.

Two years ago we were picked for having one of the top 5 best Nude Year's Eve parties in the world by the popular British Travel site Skyskanner: http://www.skyscanner.net/news/nude-years-eve-5-places-see-new-year-nature-intended They wrote: "The climate is pleasant in the winter, making this an ideal destination for Nude Year. The Terra Cotta Inn is very popular with first-time naturists. They have barbecue and spa facilities as well as an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, all of which come into play in their notorious clothing-optional New Year's Eve celebration. You don't have to be a hotel guest to attend, or take all of your clothes off if you don't want to in this laid-back California scene."

This year's theme is Celebrating the Golden Western US. Relieve the Gold Rush days by wearing gold, or the Golden Gate Bridge, or be a surfer dude or dudette, or celebrate the golden age of westerns. It's going to be a fun party!

Every year, we always sell out. It's that much fun. It's the most fun you can have without your clothes on. We just have a few rooms left for the New Year's holiday period and a few spaces left just for the party if you are staying somewhere else in Palm Springs.

So yes, you can come just for the party or do what everyone else does and take a Nude Year's vacation here. If you have a home in Palm Springs or are staying at a time share, you can still go to our fun naked New Years eve party.

Above are some photos from previous parties.

The party is fantastic. We start by serving you a 5 course sit down dinner. Steak and lobster. All you can eat.

Come midnight, we have a decadent dessert buffet and ring in the New Year, or is that Nude Year?

As you can see in the above photos, the dress code is clothing optional. Some women dress elegantly in sheer tops, and dresses. Slinky would fit right in. Very sexy and chic. Other guests however, prefer to dress in suits. Birthday suits that is. Clothing is never required at our New Year's eve party.

Our party is held in our big event room, aka our very spacious living room, so you will be nice and toasty warm and don't have to worry about wearing clothes.

You'll love our party and our resort.

If you have always wanted to stay at a clothing optional resort, now is the perfect time. In April, 2012 AOL Travel picked us as one of the 10 best clothing optional resorts in the world and the only nudist resort on the west coast that was honored. Also the only one in the US that caters to couples. We were also picked as the best value nude sunbathing resort in the US. And this Summer CBS TV-Palm Springs picked us as the most popular of ALL hotels in the whole Palm Springs area.

We are also the most mainstream clothing optional resort in the US. We are perfect for couples trying topless or nude sunbathing for the first time. You do not have to be a card carrying nudist to stay here.

Give us a call at 800-786-6938 for more information or to make reservations.
