The Resort at Paws Up and green o

Yellowstone Fever. It’s real. Symptoms include an insatiable need to be immersed in the American West, an affinity for refined-but-elegantly-rustic living spaces, and an untapped desire for adventure. While the creators of the Paramount+ series may be responsible for putting Montana into the present-day zeitgeist, the owners of The Resort at Paws Up—and now green o—in Greenough have been inviting guests to partake of this dream since opening in 2005.

This all-inclusive private property, situated on roughly 37,000 acres, is home to both resorts and offers unrivaled luxe hospitality, as well as more than 50 bucket list-level outdoor activities.

Upon Arrival

Put down your phone. Inhale. Look out the window. Marvel. Exhale, and soak it all in. Once you touch down at the airport in Missoula, a member of the resort staff will collect you and your luggage for the short 40-minute drive to the property.

Where To Stay

Take your pick.
The Resort at Paws Up features luxury home sites, some of which accommodate up to eight guests. In warmer months, sleep under the stars in one of the covetable glamping sites adjacent to the stunning Blackfoot River where Brad Pitt filmed “A River Runs Through It.” Appointed with safari-style luxury tents, these camping sites often play host to multi-generational groups of travelers and families looking to reconnect without the distraction of the modern world. Get lost—or maybe find yourself again—in this glorious, screen-free setting.

There are multiple dining options, even more so in the warmer months. Not to be missed: the famed s’mores setup that’s totally next-level.

Couples looking for a romantic getaway, or even solo travelers seeking a mindful reset, may prefer one of 12 accommodations on the green o property, which is for adults only. Nestled into the forest, these homes are more intimate with every detail considered, including fireplaces and private hot tubs.

The property’s central Social Haus serves as the culinary hub where Chef Brandon Cunningham wows guests with his multi-course evening tasting menus. The restaurant also serves wood-fired pizzas, simple salads, and Wagyu burgers at both lunch and dinner. Want to stay in? The owners thought you might. Meals can always be delivered straight to your room.

Choose Your Own Adventure

As luxe as your abode is, Montana’s vast expanses are like a siren’s call to spend your time outdoors. The hardest part might be narrowing down your options. In cold months, take advantage of all the snow with a snowmobile trek into the backcountry where you can explore Garnet Ghost Town, an abandoned mining village which dates back to 1895. You can also go dogsledding, mountain tubing, and cross-country skiing. One activity that should top your list is MoonBiking. This property is the first of its kind to offer guests a fleet of these French-designed, electric-powered, powder-loving, adventure vehicles. Serious fun is guaranteed.

Activities in warmer months include fly-fishing that famed Blackfoot River, whitewater rafting, fat tire electric bikes, go-karts, a high-ropes course, and more.

Year-round guests can try their hand at sporting clays, archery, horseback riding, and Cow Croquet. It is nearly impossible to list every activity, especially since more are being added each season (like those MoonBikes!). Whatever you don’t get to do in this trip just means you have to come back soon.
