June / July / August
Remember that feeling when school finally let out? This summer, gather the whole family at The Resort at Paws Up® to remember exactly how exhilarating it is to not have a responsibility in the world—except to decide what to do next. Shall you rise early and explore miles of wilderness trails, or hop on a ropes course to show everyone what you’re made of? Maybe you’ll go horseback riding, float down the river or engage in a s’mores-eating contest. Join us in Montana and experience the endless ways to make the most of those extra-long golden days of summer.
No other resort in the country offers families as many adventures as The Resort at Paws Up. And summer vacation is your chance to shine. Under bright Montana skies, you can take your kids on an epic kayaking trip, watch them rappel off Lookout Rock or wander on horseback with them through an endless pine forest.
What better way to seize the day than with a morning trail ride, mountainside rappelling or driving a herd of cattle in the afternoon sun? You’ll find endless opportunities for adventure spread across the 37,000 acres of The Resort—and summer is the ideal season to check off as many bucket-list items as you can. Kids will enjoy a wide range of junior programs while adults can let loose on the trails, shooting ranges and more. With more than 70 activities offered at Paws Up, one thing’s for sure: you’ll never get bored.
Just a short distance away from Paws Up, you’ll find a new world of summer adventures. Gather your group and head to the Seeley Lake House or Paws Up’s private island getaway, the Island Lodge at Salmon Lake. Spend the day boating, swimming and waterskiing, complemented by a beverage service and fine cuisine prepared by our on-site chef. If rushing rivers are more your speed, you’re in luck: The Resort is surrounded by legendary rivers ideal for whitewater rafting and canoeing as well as superb fly-fishing for anglers of all experience levels.
Of course, where you’ll stay is just as extraordinary as the rest of your trip. Go for a glamping adventure in a one-, two- or three-bedroom luxury tent and experience the bliss of falling asleep to the real-life natural soundtrack of the Blackfoot River. With comfy furnishings, en suite bathrooms and a camping butler, it’s outdoor living at its finest. The great indoors are just as fun—your family can also spread out in a posh home secluded in the timbers. At the end of the day, everyone can gather in the great room, admire the stars from your private outdoor hot tub and play in the lofted game room. Good thing it’s not a school night.
If sunny skies have an official flavor, you’ll find it at The Resort at Paws Up. Perhaps it’s a refreshing cocktail muddled with fruit picked fresh that day or a hot-off-the-grill Montana burger topped with huckleberry BBQ sauce. Whether you’re in the mood for fine dining at Pomp or an outdoor feast at our chuck wagon, you’re getting a taste of the best Montana has to offer. The summer menu at Paws Up is constantly evolving, featuring local ingredients such as asparagus, elderberries, fiddlehead ferns and rhubarb. You’ll enjoy all the above plus plenty of gooey gourmet s’mores by the bonfire—because no summer is complete without at least one.
Good thing the days are longer—you’ll never be short on things to do. You’ll fill your days with breathtaking wilderness activities, water adventures and five-star cuisine, followed by lively gatherings around the bonfire before heading back to luxe accommodations. Sound too good to be true? That’s the thing about a Montana summer—there’s nothing else quite like it. Start planning your getaway today at The Resort at Paws Up.
