Colorado Welcomes the First Cannabis-Friendly Lodge
As the Colorado marijuana industry continues to evolve and grow, it is causing ripples of change across the state. One of the most exciting new developments is the opening of the first ever marijuana lodge in ski country, cleverly named the Bud and Breakfast Silverthorne. The lodge offers rooms for $149 per night and guests can stay in Grateful-Dead themed rooms. The lodge also offers a wide variety of edibles, concentrates, and other pot products through a partnership with two local dispensaries.
Everyday at 4:20 (of course!), the lodge has a Happy Hour and they also have morning “wake and bake” sessions where guests can indulge in cannabis and complementary mimosas. The lodge staff are experts at everything reefer and can help the inexperienced visitor navigate the world of pot to find the best option for an ultimate getaway.
Bud and Breakfast Silverthorne also has some amazing food! A local chef prepares gourmet edibles and fancy hors d’oeuvres for guests to sample before they hit the ski slopes. Whether you want to smoke a bowl by the stone fireplace or just find the perfect edible snack for an after-ski nap, the lodge has everything you need. Owners Mike Roscheleau and Stephanie Colner want the inn to feel like a home away from home.
“This really inspires a communal, social atmosphere,” Roscheleau explained. “It’s a fusion of Colorado’s two biggest attractions, cannabis and skiing.” He said that many guests are interested in a fun retreat and want to try some cannabis, but they aren’t familiar with how and where they can use it legally. “So many people these days are coming to Colorado for a cannabis vacation. You can buy it as much as you want, just going dispensary to dispensary, but you can’t always use it where you want. We want to bridge the gap, give people a place that’s fun and clean and comfortable where you don’t have to worry about the legal issue.”
Roscheleau said they want to keep guests comfortable, but also help educate them about marijuana. “We take a lot of pride in the education angle,” he said. “For a lot of people, cannabis is still taboo where they’re from, but they see all these different forms and ways to consume that aren’t just smoking. It’s about what’s going to be best for them.”
If you are looking for the perfect cannabis friendly vacation, the Bud and Breakfast might be exactly what you’re hoping to find. Would this be your dream vacation?
