Getting ready for our Montana Long Table dinner tonight. The table is set…now bring on the gourmet food made from our neighboring Montana food purveyors.
This week we’ve had the pleasure of hosting Scott Besaw, a talented musician from Chicago. From drum circles to live music, Scott has provided wonderful entertainment for our guests.
Reunite with nature minus the hassles at The Resort at Paws Up, a 37,000-acre luxury ranch in the heart of Montana. Discover a lavish way of camping as the resort expertly blends authentic nature experience with creature comforts. Take in the views surrounding your tent before settling in the finely designed space with its private master bathroom and the most comfortable bed you’ll ever sleep in, known at the resort as The Last Best Bed with 300-count linens, down duvet comforters and over-sized pillows. While at camp, enjoy personalized service from your camping butler and skilled camp chef. Yes, this means gourmet meals in elegant outdoor settings. Resist the urge of getting holed up in your tent; rather, have a go at the wilderness adventures and dude ranch activities. Take your pick from the exhilarating recreations from trail riding to cliff rappelling, ATV riding, whitewater rafting and fly-fishing on the famed Blackfoot River. The resort’s latest addition to its brand of luxury is the Pinnacle Camp, which is truly at the peak of grandeur boasting the camp’s largest tents, en-suite bathrooms with jetted tubs and unparalleled views of Elk Creek and the Blackfoot River. For a romantic touch, book the secluded Tango Point tent featuring a lovely copper tub set in the middle of the bedroom. Before retreating to your tent, unwind and get cozy by the stone and timber fireplace at the Pinnacle Camp’s open-air dining pavilion and lounge. You may book an entire camp for your exclusive use; however, reservations should be placed at least one year in advance. The best time to go is from late May to September for pleasant outdoor weather.
Our seventh annual 4th of July bash was a memorable evening for all. From sack races and face painting for the kids, to a a pie eating contest for the adults, a good time was had by our wonderful guests. We even added a mechanical bull to the festivities. And, of course, our annual parade was a hit, with the guests from Pinnacle Camp taking the prize for the most creative float.

Set on a whopping 37,000 acres in the wilds of Montana (where the 1992 Brad Pitt flick A River Runs Through It was shot) is Paws Up, the ultimate luxury tent adventure property in the U.S. There are just 24 specially fashioned tents situated to offer panoramic vistas, ultra privacy and amenities like outdoor hot tubs and 300 thread-count linens. Paws Up even has two restaurants on site—but don’t worry about over-indulging, you can easily work it off on their 120-plus miles of trails.
One of our resident horses is trying to stay cool in the warm Montana summer sun. We had to capture the moment.
