Cannabis has been legal in Colorado since 2012, but options for tourists looking for a place to light up are still relatively hard to find. Consumption laws in the state prohibit smoking cannabis openly or publicly–making lighting up in parks, music venues, bars, or basically any place with people, illegal. However, hotels and bed and breakfasts in the state are allowed to choose whether or not guests can consume marijuana on the premises, though most hotels have opted to ban any type of smoking.
One pot-friendly exception in the Colorado hospitality industry is the MaryJane Group. Founded in 2014 by Joel Schneider, the company bills itself as the “leader and creator of the canna-lifestyle hospitality sector.” MaryJane already owns a successful chain of pot-friendly B&Bs in the state, with locations in Denver, Silverthorne, and Colorado Springs.
On Friday, the company announced plans to open the country’s first cannabis resort. Camp Bud+Breakfast at Aspen Canyon Ranch, a 414 acre all-inclusive getaway in Parshall, Colorado, will open for this year’s summer season, July 1 – September 30.
From the MaryJane Group’s press release:
Located in the Rocky Mountains approximately 1.5 hours from downtown Denver and within 25 minutes of the Bud+Breakfast at Silverthorne location, the ranch is near some of the state’s most beloved outdoor destinations, The resort combines recreational marijuana use and education with a traditional ranch experience to create the country’s first-ever cannabis resort.
Guests will enjoy renowned Bud+Breakfast dishes throughout the day including “Wake and Bake Breakfast,” “420” Happy Hour, dinner and late night dessert. Complimentary drinks including soda, water, beer and wine will also be available to guests throughout their stay. Guests will also enjoy unlimited access to equipment and guides for outdoor activities, plus arts and wellness classes like Canvas and Cannabis and Cannabis Yoga. The resort will offer a variety of courses, workshops and interactive learning series focused on cannabis-related sciences, cultivation and pairings. Sessions will be led by a respected group of pharmacologic cannabis pioneers, wellness coaches, yogis, culinary wizards and dispensary owners. Camp Bud+Breakfast at Aspen Canyon Ranch, which is situated on the Williams Fork River, has hot tubs, nightly entertainment and recreational activities such as bocce, river tubing, fly fishing, horseshoes and beach volleyball, and provides daily shuttles to lakes and hot springs within 20 minutes of the property and shuttles to and from Silverthorne, Colorado. For an additional fee, guests can go on horseback riding and ATV tours.
