A great place to stay, for the new couple to optimal clothing, Rolf and Cynthia were both very friendly and respectful of our privacy. Breakfast was great and finished at the time we requested. The hot tub was welcoming, before and after almost everything. All in all, a great base from which to explore the area.

My wife and I, along with two of our friends stayed at Arroyo Del Sol B&B on November 14th. So I thought I would give a quickie review on our weekend getaway. Walking through the gate you notice a large yard and very open, while being very private. What a perfect place to be clothes free. But as we continued...

First trip to a clothing optional resort. Room was very nice, outstanding views of surrounding hills. Beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright Jr designed home. Conveniently located. Stay was very relaxing. We will definitely be back.

This great Frank Lloyd Wright Jr designed lodging is perched on the edge of a valley, with views of the golden California sunset ahead, and the San Gabriel National Forest to the right.

I was in town for a long weekend for a wedding in Malibu and decided to stay at Arroyo del Sol because the nightly rate was less than the recommended hotels of the wedding party, and also, of course, because it's clothing optional. It was a wonderful experience. The hosts Rolf and Cynthia were very gracious and accommodating, incredibly flexible...

I don't normally choose B&Bs - I'm often shy with strangers - but I'm very glad that my desire for a clothing optional weekend (storing up sun for the winter!) brought me to Arroyo del Sol. The house is historic, the property is well tended for its age and the hosts are remarkably hospitable. They went out of their way...

My wife and I just spent two nights at this lovely and unusual home in the Pasadena area.

My wife and I spent a great night here last week hosted by Rolf. We saw less of Cynthia as she was at work during the day.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Arroyo del Sol: This unique and significant clothing optional home is located on the edge of the Arroyo Seco Canyon and is a true experience to enjoy with it's 1940's styling and feel. Situated on 2/3 acre, it is adjacent to the trail-head for hiking, biking and horseback riding into the Angeles National Forest, which is just a few steps from the home. Minutes away from the Rose Bowl, shopping, theaters, museums and all of the other amenities of Pasadena, plus a short drive to downtown Los Angeles, Anaheim and the SoCal beaches! A fabulous location for adventuring out to see all that SoCal has to offer...all while you enjoy being in a nudist friendly environment! ... more   less

“slept like babies, even though you hear the endearing sound of roosters in the morning! So cool to walk outside and see the neighbors riding horses!”

“Both rooms have plenty of A/C and the entire upstairs is for the guests. Both rooms will share one very large bathroom with a coffee maker, fridge, shower, toilet, large vanity mirror, and two sinks. There are a couple couches and a flat screen tv to kick back and enjoy the evening with, and the patio on the roof was perfect for an early morning coffee on the swinging bench. I give the pool area a 4/5 because there is no pool, only an awesome jacuzzi, and the fitness center since there really isn't any, but terrific mountainous trails, and a large shopping center nearby! Lots of room to stretch your legs.”
