The Resort at Paws Up (www.pawsup.com) is set to open just outside Missoula, MT, in June. The 37,000-acre resort, privately owned by businessman Dave Lipson and his wife Nadine, is situated along the Blackfoot River and comprises a series of 2,400-square-foot private Big Timber Homes. The resort offers guests 100 miles of designated hiking, biking, horse and ATV trails, as well as fly fishing, tubing, kayaking and more.

Resort staff recommends The Morris House or the Ponderosa Pine (the largest of the Big Timber Homes) for large families. Spa treatments will be conducted en suite for 2005; a 10,000-square-foot spa and wellness center will open in 2006. Two restaurants will provide gourmet and casual dining options from Chef Jacob Wetherington: The Cook Shack will offer gourmet continental cuisine with a Western flare, while The Tank and Trough Bistro’s atmosphere and menu will be more casual. Non-resort guests will be welcome at both.

Travel agent liaison Tara Castelucci will handle group requests, while Cheryl Kightlinger will deal with VIP clients one-on-one. Assistant General Manager Bryan Kindred and Director of Sales Christopher Bentley welcome contact from guests as well.

A concierge staff will arrange custom experiences for guests, such as a camping trip complete with butler, or romantic, lakeside dining. The resort will provide
private transportation to Missoula for guests who want to shop the town’s boutiques, and helicopter service will be available between the resort and nearby airports
for a fee.

Paws Up is now accepting advance reservations by phone (406-244-5200) and GDS.
