  • Reservation and Cancellation Policy

    Rates are based on availability, subject to change and are not valid with any other promotion. All reservations are subject to a 60-day cancellation policy. To confirm your reservation, a two-night deposit is required. The remaining balance is due 60 days prior to your arrival. For reservations canceled more than 60 days prior to arrival, we will refund your full deposit, less a 10% (of the deposit amount) transaction fee. Your full deposit amount is nonrefundable for cancellations made within 60 days prior to your arrival. Within 60 days prior to your arrival, no rate adjustments will be made for the cancellation of a portion of your reserved stay or a reduction in the size of your party. Reservations made within 60 days prior to arrival must be 100% prepaid at the time of booking. Because of our small size, cancellations or rescheduling of dates affect us significantly.

The Resort at Paws Up highly recommends you purchase trip insurance from your local travel agent or your insurance provider.

Here, you'll live day to day, adventure to adventure. Spend an hour, a day or a week on horseback—all in a wilderness sanctuary you'll never forget.

Each tent is carefully appointed with hardwood floors, fine linens, air conditioning and heat, plus a private, en-suite bath with heated slate floors, stylish vanities and Montana-size showers. Exquisite cuisine is steps away in an elegant Dining Pavilion in each of the six camps.  You’ll spend your evening enjoying s’mores around the campfire, telling stories of your adventures and taking in the view of countless stars above.
