Calling itself truly "The Last Best Place," The Resort at Paws Up, 30 minutes east of Missoula, Montana, sprawls across 37,000 acres. It is larger, more lavish and more luxurious than anything imagined. Entering the ranch on a gravel road just off Highway 200, there is no hint of what's in store for you, until you walk into the spacious reception area furnished with leather couches, intricately carved wooden chairs, original oil paintings and bronze sculptures. Named one of the top four resorts to watch in 2006 ~ by "Travel & Leisure Family" magazine and one of the "Small Luxury Hotels of the World," The Resort at Paws Up prides itself on "rustic elegance."
The Resort is a luxurious Montana enclave, situated in some of the most breathtaking country in the world. It's home to first-class adventure on a grand scale. An exhilarating contradiction of Rocky Mountain wilderness and uptown luxury, There are more than 100 miles of trails separated for specific use for ATVs, mountain bikers and hikers; a litany of guided wilderness activities, including kayaking, canoeing and rafting; and seven miles of private blue-ribbon fly fishing on the Blackfoot, made famous in the film A River Runs Through It.
Indoors, Paws Up is no slouch either, with 20 luxury Old West-style homes. A second resort within the resort called Tent City evokes the golden age of safaris, right down to the "camping butlers" and a "spa village." The remote Encampment at Bull Creek is the third lodging option. The scale is enormous: the majesty of the country; your Luxury Big Timber Home; huge breakfasts; and additional adventure facilities to enjoy like: horseback riding, cycling, sporting clays, boating, jet skis, kids camp, upland bird hunting, or in the winter Cross-country skiing, sleigh rides, dog sledding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or ice skating. Oh, and lets not forget... the excellent spa treatments in one of the worlds most unique tented spas.
