At the crossroads of incomparable luxury and unspoiled wilderness lies The Resort at Paws Up—a luxury ranch resort situated on a sprawling, 37,000-acre, authentic working cattle ranch in western Montana. Whether you choose an expansive private home or a sophisticated, safari-style luxury tent, Paws Up provides an unfiltered connection with the natural beauty of Montana amidst a landscape of impeccable rustic elegance and comfort.
Known as The Last Best Place, The Resort at Paws Up is located just 35 miles from Missoula International Airport (transfers included). This luxury ranch resort is a pristine escape in the Rocky Mountains, taking full advantage of the Big Sky countryside, with over 40 on-site activities and adventures for all energy levels—including a multitude of lake excursions available at our new Island Lodge at Salmon Lake. At Paws Up, you can explore the land on horseback, cast a fly for trout or simply indulge in spa treatments at Spa Town.®
As for accommodations, you can choose from 28 luxurious vacation homes, or you can experience glamping in 36 safari-style tents. The tents are divided into six camps, each fully outfitted with one-, two- or three-bedroom tent suites. From late May through early October, you can be surrounded by nature while reveling in every kind of comfort, including cell service and Wi-Fi, if feel the need to “plug in.” Each tent is also carefully appointed with hardwood floors, fine linens, air conditioning and heat, plus a private, en suite master bathroom with heated slate floors, stylish vanities and Montana-size showers.
In the camps, exquisite cuisine is steps away in an elegant Dining Pavilion. You’ll spend your evening enjoying s’mores around a campfire, telling stories of your adventures and taking in the view of countless stars above. The cuisine at Pomp might be described as refined rustic ranch. Grounded in the fundamentals of classic cooking, our chef uses his background and imagination to create culinary innovations. Local ingredients are featured, so offerings change just like the seasons. Trough offers meals with a Western flair. Home-cooked flavors mingle with traditional offerings for a rustic, yet refined palette. You may find hand-cut meats combined with locally sourced vegetables, among many options. Satisfaction is guaranteed. Breakfast and lunch are served daily. Paws Up recently introduced the Ranch Table in Trough, an organic, grab-and-go dining adventure that is a showcase for local farms and culinary purveyors. Step aboard our old-fashioned horse-drawn wagon and enjoy a unique adventure. This scenic ride ends at the banks of the Blackfoot River, where you’ll enjoy an authentic chuck wagon dinner. The finest offerings are prepared on an open fire right before your eyes—just like in the Old West. And for anything more you could require, a camping butler is there to help. You’ll sleep on the finest sheets, eat world-class cuisine and receive impassioned, personalized service. This is nature served on a silver platter. This is The Resort at Paws Up.
