As you might remember, earlier this summer I visited Montana’s luxury ranches with a friend of mine who was coming to Big Sky Country from out of the country. We started our ranch visits at The Ranch at Rock Creek (read more about that here) and Triple Creek Ranch (check out that visit here), before venturing to our last destination in Montana’s iconic Blackfoot Valley: The Resort at Paws Up.
Located about 30 minutes from Missoula, Paws Up is a luxury guest ranch that sits among 37,000 acres in Western Montana, including 7 miles of the Blackfoot River—one of the state’s premiere fly-fishing streams.
The largest of Montana’s guest ranches, Paws Up offers various lodging options throughout its property, including luxury homes, a ranch house, lodge and gorgeous luxury camps.
Sidenote: while Paws Up has various styles of accommodations, I wholeheartedly recommend staying in one of their luxury camps.
Here’s a peek…
While we were only at Paws Up for a short time, we filled our two-day stay with as much Montana fun as possible. During our time there, we saw a cattle drive, took an ATV tour, filled our tummies at a riverside chuckwagon dinner, heard cowboy poetry, met Pete + Repeat and listened to the rushing sounds of the Blackfoot River from our camp’s nightly campfire.
It was the perfect place to end our trip.
And just in case you’re planning a stay at The Resort at Paws Up, here’s a few things to note:
-Paws Up offers packages throughout the year, including notable events like Montana Master Chefs, Upper Crust and Cowgirls Spring Roundup.
-Paws Up has a phenomenal kids program, The Kids Corps of Discover, that’s great for various ages of children.
-Nightly rates include lodging, breakfast, lunch and dinner each day (as well as beverages), round-trip transportation to/from Missoula International Airport, on-property transportation and some recreational activities. Additional guided excursions and spa services are available at a-la-carte rates.
