Tour America's First All-Inclusive Marijuana Ranch Resort

New, 23 comments

Calling all marijuana aficionados: beginning on July 1, you can now book an all-inclusive vacation at a pot ranch in Colorado. Billed as the "nation's first cannabis-friendly ranch resort," Durango's 170-acre CannaCamp is located in a setting that won't surprise those familiar with the dude ranch concept. Guests pay between $395-449/night per person to sleep in rustic cabins, enjoy three meals on site every day, and indulge in outdoor adventures like mountain biking and hiking in San Juan Mountains. But how many mountain retreats include a "Wake+Bake Breakfast," 4:20 Community Hour, and "Cooking with Cannabis" classes?

Backed by the hospitality company Bud+Breakfast, who also manage two cannabis-friendly B&Bs in Denver and Silverthorne, CannaCamp differs from other "pot-friendly" accommodations by combining the traditional ranch vacation experience with cannabis culture.

Based on the extensive CannaCamp website, a week-long stay at this mountain retreat is like the middle school summer camp you only dreamed of. Forget hiding your stash from camp counselors and toking up behind the wood shop, at CannaCamp you can proudly display your love for all things pot and still enjoy the great outdoors. The only downside? Per Colorado law, the ranch can't distribute pot, so guests must bring their own and for safety reasons you can't smoke inside the cabins. But don't worry too much; guests that fly into Durango can utilize a cannabis-friendly airport shuttle service that is happy to stop at dispensaries on the way to CannaCamp. We bet your parents never did that.

The facilities:
-Accommodations are available in the Ponderosa Cabins ($395/night per person) or the Cabin Suites ($449/night per person) for a total of 40 guests. All cabins have private bathrooms, refrigerators, and outdoor seating on patios.
-The Main Lodge has WiFi, a game room with pool table, and fireplace.
-A 72-foot heated outdoor swimming pool and 14-person hot tub.
-Equipment for kayaking, paddle-boarding, fishing, hiking, frisbee golf, bocce ball, horseshoes, and volleyball.

Cannabis activities:
-Cooking with Cannabis: a THC Fusion Cooking class to educate guests on how to infuse meals with THC and CBD.
-Cannabis Education Classes: Guests learn about Colorado pot laws, the differences between types of marijuana, and the health benefits of a cannabis lifestyle. (Don't worry, we doubt that this laid-back class has a test at the end).
-Cannabis Yoga: Per the description, "Consuming small doses before participating in one of our yoga classes melts away nerves and inhibitions, and makes you more receptive to the poses and music. Enjoy a mellow high, and a greater focus on breathing in the crisp mountain air. Namaste."
-Canvas & Cannabis: Because pinots and palettes are so 2013.
-Cannabis-Infused Massage Therapy: The massage includes a blend of medicated lotions and oils to encourage "blood flow, boost immunity, and reduce inflammation."

-Cannabis Pairing Dinners: "All of the delicious meals served at CannaCamp include a recommended strain pairing, carefully curated to compliment flavor profiles and aromas." The goal? To create "true cannabis connoisseurs, or Cannaseurs if you will." That's it. We're going to refer to munchie-craving pot lovers as "Cannaseurs" from now on.
-Glass Blowing Demonstrations: You won't find any mass-produced pipes here. "Guests are welcome to toke up and watch as talented local artists demonstrate how to manipulate glass into beautiful, finished pieces."
-Pot Bonfires: Because nothing says Rocky Mountain High quite like "drums, guitars, or other musical instruments" around CannaCamp's fire pits.
-4:20 Community Hour: Just don't call it happy hour.

Just can't wait another second to book a vacation (dude, calm down)? Head over here. Reservations are now being accepted for vacations starting July 1.
