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 more extensive, lavish, and luxurious than anything imagined. Entering the ranch on a gravel road just off Highway 200, there is a hint of what's in store for you once 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 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 in some of the most breathtaking countries 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, 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 the winter Cross-country skiing, sleigh rides, dog sledding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or ice skating. Remember... the excellent spa treatments in one of the world's most unique tented spas.
LODGING Up to 80 guests choose from cabins, houses, and luxury camping tents, all decorated in Western style. This package includes a luxury two-night complimentary stay in a Meadow Home. The Resort at Paws Up is the perfect place for couples to relax after a day of excitement and adventures in the Montana wilderness. Guest will tell you that you will "wake to the sounds of nature all around you, but never miss a moment of the best amenities a top resort offers."
Drawing from the agricultural wealth of Montana and the West, the Chef at Paws Up creates world-class, five-star cuisine that articulately blends the most sophisticated culinary techniques with the freshest meats, produces, and ingredients available. Huckleberries from the slopes of surrounding mountains might complement a breakfast of French toast and hand-made sausage. Fresh Rocky Mountain trout, with herbs, may be paired with an exquisite Napa Valley Chardonnay. Soak up the rustic luxury of Paws Up at a lavish barbeque where guests may indulge in a flight of vintage Pinot Noirs as dinner sizzles nearby. Every sense is excited. Every meal brings a new adventure.
