Getaway: The Resort at Paws Up - a glimpse of Montana Luxury

The Resort at Paws Up

The Resort at Paws Up

When I moved to California, I drove from Michigan to Washington state to visit my brother who lived in Seattle at the time before continuing onto San Diego. My path brought me through Montana where I was in awe of the big skies and ample mountains. To see bald eagles at rest stops was inspiring and made me reflect on how gorgeous and vast this country is. 

Fast forward to this ability to serve as a Luxury Travel Advisor.  I’m so lucky to learn about and experience destinations all over the world. The Resort at Paws Up in Greenough, Montana is a special place that has captured a bit of my heart.  I’m happy to share a bit about it! 

The Resort at Paws Up - a glimpse of Montana Luxury

The Resort at Paws Up sits on 37,000 acres of sprawling land with a history dating back to the 1800’s when Lewis and Clark roamed the land. The Blackfoot Valley and Blackfoot River meander through the expansive property. Over the years it became an acclaimed cattle ranch. 

In 1997 the Lipson family undertook major renovations to bring the ranch to a whole new level of luxury. The dude ranch style resort offers extensive outdoor activities like horseback riding, fly fishing, ATV riding and many more activities. The great outdoors under the big sky lendsitself to multigenerational families, couples celebrating a romantic anniversary or provides theperfect venueto practice mindfulness while enjoying nature.

Don’t let the cattle ranch description fool you, The Resort at Paws Up offers luxurious accommodations.

The Luxury Homes on property range from 1 - 4 bedrooms and can accommodate 2 - 8 guests.

Seasonally, the resort offers Luxury Camping available in 1-2 bedroom configurations and appropriate for 1 - 4 guests.

Adventures

The Resort at Paws Up offers exceptional activities throughout the year. Nature is at the heart of everything they do.

Dining

The award winning culinary experiences at the Resort at Paws Up will satisfy any foodie! The variety of restaurants makes the dining experience fresh and unique. Enjoy a fresh catch by the Blackfoot River or delicious steak. You can feel confident in the literal “farm to table” experience!

Spa

For me, it isn’t a vacation until you’ve had a massage! Just envision checking into your Luxury Camping venue, relaxing in a warm bath with the sound of the river in the background and then indulging in a 90-minute treatment. Sounds heavenly, right? 

Seasonally, the treatment rooms are small tents nicely appointed to indulge your senses.

During the winter, the spa rooms move indoors but the feeling of one-ness with nature continues.
