At the crossroads of incomparable luxury and unspoiled wilderness lies The Resort at Paws Up. This luxurious Montana guest ranch is situated in some of the most breathtaking country in the world. 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. Cast a fly in sparkling waters to eager cutthroats, explore the land Lewis and Clark swooned over or lose yourself in a world-class spa. You’ll sleep on the finest sheets amidst a landscape of impeccable rustic elegance. It’s home to first-class adventure on a grand scale. The Resort at Paws Up – truly The Last Best Place. 

Impeccably appointed in a tapestry of rustic elegance, the beauty of the luxury guest ranch accommodations at Paws Up is rivaled only by the views of the breathtaking Montana wilderness. These are truly unique dwellings in which no two private homes are alike. Indulge in an expansive Big Timber Home or one of ten new Wilderness Estates; luxury accommodations as spacious as the Montana sky that give a warm welcome to families, groups or honeymoon couples. Or hide away in a cozier Meadow Home. For a higher level of togetherness, we offer the Bunkhouse – a former hayloft ideally suited for a bachelorette party or groups on fly-fishing vacations. For a true Montana experience, there’s our historic Morris Farm House, built in 1908. This charming farmhouse is remotely nestled on the bank of Elk Creek and simply oozes nostalgia. And for a truly unique western experience, outdoor enthusiasts will rejoice in a stay at Tent City. Enjoy luxury resort amenities like featherbeds, fine linens and all of the modern conveniences offered at our vacation homes – all while taking in the grandeur of the Montana wilderness. 

With a unique blend of western chic, our private vacation homes provide the conveniences of a luxury resort with rustic elegance that can only be found in Montana. Resort essentials like hot tubs, flat-screen TVs with satellite and Internet access (Note: there is no cellular service on ranch property) are provided in all accommodations.

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, produce and ingredients available. Huckleberries picked from the slopes of surrounding mountains might complement a breakfast of French toast and hand-made sausage. River-caught trout sautéed with fresh 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 new adventure. 

On a wooded hillside high above the resort – perched at the tops of soaring pines – will sit The Spa at Paws Up. This haven of relaxation will offer natural light, soothing sounds and indigenous aromas–and that’s just the lobby. We’ll have masseuses that melt muscle fatigue, stress management for executives and calming treatments for jittery pre-wedding nerves. Every moment at The Spa at Paws Up will bring rejuvenation, fortification and relaxation. We’ll give new meaning to the term “getting lost” in the woods. 

Adventure enthusiasts rejoice. Montana wilderness adventures and western vacations take on a whole new life at Paws Up. Our 37,000 acres of Resort, 100 miles of trails, 7 miles of the Blackfoot River, and 1.5-million acres of the nearby Bob Marshall Wilderness combine to make for the ultimate wilderness playground. A true guest ranch adventure is much more than rounding up and driving cattle; at Paws Up guests experience non-stop wilderness adventure and action. Saddle up for a definitive western style vacation at The Saddle Club at Paws Up, take your best shot at a world-class sporting clays course, cast a fly with an expert guide for the most exciting fly-fishing in Montana. And, if that doesn’t satisfy your adventurous appetite, there’s also lake swimming, boating, hiking, mountain biking, rafting, tubing and nearby championship golf. Visit in the winter and partake of everything from cross-country skiing and snowmobiling to downhill skiing and even dog sledding amidst the Rocky Mountains. Experience the western vacation of a lifetime. When it comes to wilderness adventures, Paws Up is an all-you-can-eat buffet.
