Top Cannabis Friendly Airbnbs in the U.S.

This year marks a decade since the first U.S. states (Colorado and Washington) legalized recreational cannabis. Since then, many other states have joined the 420 club and cannabis has become a rapidly growing industry despite still being illegal at the federal level. Amid all the innovative smoking products and luxury dispensaries popping up, weed lovers from across the U.S. and the world are flocking to legal states to partake. Because of this, 420 tourism has started to take off and doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. From birthday celebrations and bachelor parties, to relaxing weekend getaways, pot lovers now expect to have elevated experiences when on vacation or away from home and don’t want to be worried about their lifestyle when traveling. Even in legal states, the rules normally require smokers to light up only on private property, which forces travelers to puff discreetly at a hotel, or find a cannabis friendly Airbnb. In recent years there has been a surge in cannabis friendly lodging to accommodate this growing need, particularly with 420 friendly Airbnbs and other short-term vacation rentals that have more control over setting the rules. Here’s how to find a smoke friendly Airbnb and a few suggestions for your next trip out of town.

What is a 420 friendly Airbnb?

The term 420 friendly is used to talk about lodging, a place, or an activity that allows or is tolerant of cannabis use. People can be 420 friendly too! A 420 friendly Airbnb is a short term rental that is owned by someone who is completely fine with renters consuming cannabis on the property. However, it’s always important to read the rules of the house on each listing since some landlords may not want doesn’t visitors smoking inside the home, but are perfectly fine if you roll a joint on the balcony or light up poolside in the backyard. Ultimately, if you decide to partake, the host will not be the ones calling the police and won’t charge you for smoking if you abide by the rules.

How to find a cannabis friendly airbnb

Airbnb doesn’t have any policies regulating cannabis use on properties listed on the website as long as it’s located within a legal state and the host isn’t selling or gifting bud to their visitors. But even with an open policy, the company doesn’t make it easy for stoners to find smoke friendly Airbnb listings on the website. There are tons of filters to choose from such as amenities like a jacuzzi or pool, wifi, parking spaces, number of beds and baths, air conditioning, unique stays, and much more to narrow down the listings, but there is nowhere to search for 420 friendly homes. There isn’t even a search bar to type in keywords. Instead, weed enthusiasts need to find listings in a location they like and read through each listing’s house rules, which is very time consuming. Another option is to find a listing and search the reviews for words like 420, smoke, weed, etc. But the easiest way is to find and read a few Airbnb 420 listicles like this one (we’ve done the work for you) or do a simple Google search for the preferred location plus these search terms:

  • 420 friendly Airbnb
  • Airbnb 420
  • Cannabis friendly Airbnb
  • Smoke friendly Airbnb
  • 420 vacation rental
  • Mary Jane vacation rental
  • Green friendly Airbnb
  • Smoking allowed Airbnb
  • Bud and breakfast

If you’re unsure about what’s allowed and what isn’t, don’t be shy to contact the host to clarify the rules. Using a vaporizer indoors may be completely fine, but they could ask you to light blunts and bongs outdoors.

Why find a 420 friendly place rather than taking a chance on a regular Airbnb?

Bed and breakfasts and vacation rentals are known for having unique vibes, all the comforts of home (like a full kitchen for when the munchies hit), less noise, and typically cheaper rates than a hotel or resort in the same area. Oh and another thing, the host gets to make the rules of their house. When booking a 420 friendly Airbnb, there’s no need to hide or worry that you’ll get caught and fined if you have the urge to light up. If you book a regular place, there’s always the risk of getting hit with a huge cleaning fee that will ruin any trip. Hosts set the price to whatever they want and a smoking fee can run from $100 at a cheap studio to upwards of $2,000 for lingering smoke at a luxury rental. It’s just not worth the risk if you know you’ll be taking bong rips before a night out.

Planning a multi-day trip and finding the perfect accommodation with the right vibe is time consuming on its own.

That’s why we’ve done the work for you, scouring the internet to find some of the best 420 friendly Airbnbs in the U.S. for your next vacation. We didn’t just limit our search to pot hotspots like Colorado, Oregon, and California either.
