Montana’s Luxe Dude Ranch: The Resort at Paws Up

Experience the great outdoors, without roughing it.

What if I told you each tent has a butler. YES, a camping butler.  Your tent will have A/C and an en suite bathroom with a towel heater if that helps you envision the difference between accommodations at Paws Up and the pop-up in your back yard.  I’m down for both but clearly prefer my vacation to feel like vacation so the tent with housekeeping is worth it.

Inside Scoop

This authentic Montana ranch has first-class adventure for you to explore the land Lewis & Clark swooned over. Clients rave over the family style meals that break the all-inclusive stereotype by being oh so good.  Some favorites include huckleberry pancakes and leg of lamb. Plus everyone eats together al fresco with live music at a Montana long table.

Lodging Options:  

Families or Honeymooners? Homesites sit on 4 acres with 1-4 bedrooms

Multi-Gens or Travel Pods? You can reserve an entire family camp accommodating 12-24 guests for a private stay within the resort

Glamping not your thing? Beautiful River Houses, Ranch Lodges, and Estates are available

Featured in Travel and Leisure “Top 15 Resorts in the West”.  Conde Nast Traveler named the resort one of The Best Luxury Kid-Friendly Hotels in the U.S. 

Unique Features

Considered to be an American Safari, this sanctuary gives new meaning to the term “getting lost” in the woods. Float the river, ATV, hike, and visit swimming holes. This is the perfect outdoor adventure to stay busy and isolated.  Kids of all ages will have something to be excited about, plus the kids camp has pony rides and a petting zoo. Kids camp is complimentary for those 4+ so while this is the perfect adventure to get closer, I’m sure they wouldn’t mind if you split away for an afternoon massage.

Release your inner cowboy or cowgirl on an authentic cattle drive, where you can try your hand at herding cattle from horseback.

Don’t forget your cowboy hat and boots!
