Located just outside the small town of Greenough in the Blackfoot Valley, Paws Up is a Montana wilderness resort and ranch that sprawls across nearly 40,000 acres of pristine Montana wilderness. Come here if you’d like to experience the best of outdoor adventure by day and twenty-first-century comforts in the evening.
Adventure enthusiasts will rejoice in this ultimate wilderness playground. There is a huge variety of adventures of all kinds, from horse back riding, fly-fishing on the Blackfoot River, abseiling cliffs made famous by Lewis & Clark, clay pigeon shooting, white water rafting and kayaking, hot air ballooning, ATV riding, back country camping trips and a superb programme of activities for children.
For those yearning to cowboy up in Big Sky Country, guests can enjoy dude ranch activities such as trail riding suitable for novice and advanced rider alike on horses from one of the West’s best stables or saddle up and join seasoned ranch hands to drive a herd of cattle. Gather them from the pastures and trail them to the corrals to sort them – truly an experience of a lifetime.
What is so different about Paws Up is that there are endless adventures to be had, there is truly an adventure of a lifetime for everyone. Then after a full day of the great outdoors, you’ll come back to superb gourmet cuisine, a tranquil woodland spa where you will be soothed and lulled by the chirping of birds under the pine trees, and amazing facilities.
Accommodation options are fabulous. The luxury ranch homes range from three-bedroom cabins ideal for families complete with panoramic vistas, a sense of privacy and a private deck where you can soak in your six-person hot tub, to the ultra-secluded Blackfoot River Lodge, a light-filled retreat with stunning views from every window, and the allegedly haunted Morris Farmhouse, built in 1908 and decorated accordingly—except for the flat-screen TVs. In summer, and if booked well in advance, guests can also opt for deluxe safari-style tents pitched along the Blackfoot River, which come with a private butler who will be able to schedule anything from a chuck wagon ride to a gourmet campfire cookout or your next spa treatment. The ultimate accommodation option is Cliffside Camp, situated on a bluff overlooking the confluence of the Blackfoot River and Elk Creek, with breathtaking views and six large safari-style tent suites, including incredibly romantic honeymoon tents.
