Many tourists are surprised to learn that though recreational marijuana use is legal in Colorado, public consumption is illegal. Most hotels do not allow cannabis consumption. If they do, it’s in accordance with the Colorado Clean Air Act which states that 75 percent of rooms must be smoke-free, and smoking in public areas is prohibited. But thanks to its small number of rooms and secluded mountainside location, Camp Bud+Breakfast is able to allow marijuana consumption in all public areas. For safety reasons, the resort does not allow smoking inside cabins and encourages guests to experience the communal vibe in one of many public areas (including the hot tubs, riverside, smoking lounge, bonfire, activities room, restaurant and walking trails). Each guest has access to a private deck where smoking is also allowed.
Camp Bud+Breakfast Resort can welcome up to 56 guests at a time in one bedroom cabin accommodations, the Cliff House and the River House. The cabins include outdoor private deck areas, refrigerators, premium linens and river rock gas fireplaces. The houses are finely appointed and have complete kitchens, being nestled amongst pine, fir, spruce and aspen trees and within walking distance of a pristine river and on-site fully stocked fishing ponds. Visitors from out of state can fly into Denver International Airport where transportation to Camp Bud+Breakfast will be provided at an additional cost.
