The very first overnight cannabis-friendly lodge in Colorado ski country, cleverly dubbed Bud and Breakfast Silverthorne, features Grateful Dead-themed rooms. For $149 per night guests can stay in the Bob Weir, Phil Lesh or Bill Kreutzmann rooms. And, for the more indulgent traveller, the Jerry Garcia suite is available for $199.
All the rooms are filled with signed Dead memorabilia and, thanks to Colorado's state law, occupants can pick and choose from a wide variety of pot products including flowers, edibles and concentrates provided by two local dispensaries. In addition to the daily, obligatory 4:20 Happy Hour, the lodge offers morning wake & bake sessions with complimentary mimosas and marijuana. Best of all, the innkeepers provide expert advice, explaining the differences between indicas and sativas and making reefer recommendations to less informed visitors.
With the sudden success of the Grateful Bud & Breakfast, owners are considering adding an additional room. It remains to be seen how much demand there will be to stay in a suite named after the Dead’s legendary original keyboard player, Pigpen.
