Sedgwick Antique Inn: It's magical!

Let me tell you about a magical place where people converge under one rooftop to chill, consume cannabis, and chat. It’s not just a hotel; it’s a totally immersive experience.

I first discovered the Sedgwick Antique Inn in its early days, back in 2015, when I was on a road trip from New York to Denver. This was the first time I had ever smoked weed at a hotel, at a designated spot on the hotel premises, instead of having to hotbox my car in the hotel parking lot like usual (hotbox = slang term for smoking weed in the car). I’ve been a medical cannabis card holder since 2013, so I am accustomed to consuming the product discreetly.

When I arrived at the hotel, I was greeted by a warm, welcoming lady named Lupe, who ran the place. Over the course of several stays there, I got to know Lupe and now consider her a friend. She’s a nice lady with good common sense. I’ve opened up to her about my personal issues, and she has always been happy to offer advice.

In terms of my experience at the hotel with the other guests, it has been incredible. I like it so much that I always book extra nights there in lieu of spending time in Denver or another Colorado city or town. You go to the designated smoking section, where you sit with fellow smokers who enjoy cannabis just as much as you do. As an introvert, I was anxious at first about being around other people, but I found everyone to be super cool. It just takes one “ice breaker” sentence, and then you get to talking, and before you know it, they’ve become your friend. I’ve met several lifelong friends there who invited me to visit them on their farms in South Dakota. I’ve met people from all over the country and from all walks of life–all with love for cannabis in common.

I still, to this day, keep in touch with most of the people I met both at the hotel and in the town from my first visit there in 2015. It truly is a unique place. I travel a lot and still haven’t found a hotel like it that replicates that same experience. I’d recommend this place to anyone, but I think that introverts, people who don’t feel comfortable in traditional social settings, and non-drinkers would take a particular interest in the scene there, as it is a totally different type of social setting, unlike anything you’ve encountered before. Whether you want a relaxing vacation, a stimulating one, or a mixture of both, do yourself a favor and spend a few days at the Sedgwick Antique Inn and experience the magic for yourself.
