Summer can’t be described without the outdoors. Picnics, strolls, anything to get outside and enjoy the once-a-year weather. When planning a vacation, then, why separate yourself from the beauty of nature? Embrace summer this year by visiting the ‘Last Best Place’ state of Montana. Montana is filled with unspoiled nature and at Paws Up you’re offered 37,000 acres to explore and enjoy. When putting together your summer bucket list try adding fly fishing, horseback riding, hot air ballooning, and how about an all-american Cattle Drive?
It’s the truly unique experiences that will be remembered through the years. Summer is a time to actively bond with family and friends so it’s understandable that you’re selective with where you choose to visit during precious time off. Flying into Montana from anywhere in the US means little to no jet lag, and the seclusion of our towering mountains and pines is sought by travelers all over the world. Excellent cuisine paired with luxury accommodations amplifies the experience. Expect nothing less that the freshest ingredients in your meals and the finest wines to sip by the campfire. This is big sky country so whether you’re staying in a luxury private rental or glamping like royalty be prepared to be dazzled by nature’s night-time display. For an extra special visit come during a meteor shower. Roasting marshmallows for s’mores with endless wish-making gives points for romance and is equally family friendly as well.
The blackfoot river, made famous by the novel ‘A River Runs Through It’, snakes through Paws Up for 10 miles of water adventure. Expert guides know the best spots for fly fishing and take you beyond Paws Up borders to taste all that Montana rivers have to offer. For hikers there’s the Clearwater canoe trail that follows the river, the same area mapped by Lewis and Clark. And it’s not summer without getting wet – ride rapids of all levels in either a raft or inflatable canoe! Swimming holes are also readily available and hot tubs wait on the deck of every vacation home. Cruise on watercrafts or powerboats. There’s also tubing, wakeboarding, a water trampoline, paddle boats and kayaks. Paws Up has all the water gear.
And if you haven’t experienced ‘glamping’ then this summer is the perfect time to find out what all the buzz is about. Even Prince William and Kate Middleton have been in recent glamping news. Imagine camping – minus all the sleep deprivation and lack of hygiene. In glamping camping sites, Paws Up style, expect luxury level accommodations with a camp butler and chef to compliment your outdoor stay. It’s the dude ranch feel with your best tastes in mind. Visit Spa Town to unwind and be soothed by nature’s own soundtrack of babbling creek and gentle rustling wind.
This is summer versatility with 37,000 acres to capture an entire range of summertime activities. Whether your group is the size of two or twenty plus, The Resort at Paws Up has private accommodations for you. One luxury vacation home, one tent, an entire camp or any combination thereof can be arranged for you to experience the unfiltered nature of Montana through a medium of pure luxury. Bliss.
