Resort at Paws Up: A Lexus Travel Reward
A unique Montana resort gives Lexus Drivers special treatment
As you contemplate your travel excursions for 2020, please keep in mind that Lexus drivers enjoy VIP benefits at several top hotels around the country. Lexus chooses its partner hotels and resorts carefully—each of them are premium, of course, but they also offer access to unique experiences.
Consider one of the newest additions, the Resort at Paws Up in Western Montana, where Lexus owners receive a complimentary private chef upgrade for one dining experience during their stay.
Located on 37,000 acres of wilderness and rangeland (the property includes an actual working dude ranch), the Resort at Paws Up offers two distinctive luxury-accommodation styles. First, guests can enjoy spacious vacation homes that befit the landscape: A collection of twenty-eight homes dot the property, each positioned for maximum enjoyment of the expansive Montana vistas. The homes vary between two and four bedrooms and reflect one of five Western styles, plus each home comes with a Lexus NX for guest use.
The second accommodation option nods to an upscale, safari-style glamping experience. Thirty-six luxury tents fuse the joys of a rustic, close-to-nature experience with extreme luxury, taste, and comfort. The tents are spread among six camps—each surrounded by distinctly gorgeous geography such as the appropriately named “Creekside,” “Cliffside”, and “River” camps.
Catering to families or couples, tents come with stylishly appealing décor; chic rustic furnishings (including beds with fine linens); electricity, heat, and air conditioning; sleek private bathrooms with heated floors; and even a camp butler. To step outside is to enjoy the pleasures of camping—outdoor ring fires, star-filled night skies, and Montana’s striking natural beauty.
And with 37,000 acres at guests’ disposal, the property offers incredible outdoor experiences, such as authentic ranch activities like cattle drives, trail rides, and chuck wagon dinners. Plus, the resort is a playground for fly-fishing on the legendary Blackfoot River, rock climbing in areas crossed by the Lewis and Clark expedition, whitewater rafting, unforgettable hiking and mountain biking, winter sports…the list goes on.
The Resort at Paws Up is also renowned for world-class dining. Its award-winning restaurants excel at elevating the regional flavors of rustic ranch cuisine into creatively sophisticated menus—one might see, for example, dishes with Rocky Mountain trout with local herbs or French toast with hand-made sausages and locally picked huckleberries.
And that’s just indoor dining. Open-air barbecues are paired with wine tastings from the resort’s extensive collection, and each luxury-tent camp has its own chef serving breakfast and dinner. There’s even “s’moreology” specialists on hand to help guests make perfect campfire s’mores.
Getting to the Resort at Paws Up is actually pretty easy—direct flights connect Missoula, Montana from several major U.S. cities, and from there it’s a quick 35 scenic miles to the property (you’ll be greeted at the airport and then driven to the resort in a Lexus LX).
