Couples looking for an adults-only mountain escape? Green O is for you! These 12 brand new luxury stand-alone one-bedroom suites have a modern design that blends into nature flawlessly. The perfect romantic getaway for couples seeking adventure + dining + wellness + luxury.

Families can take advantage of the luxury stand-alone homes ranging from 1- 4 bedrooms. I highly recommend the Wilderness Estates which include a teepee in the backyard for families with young kids!

Large groups / celebrations - or those looking for a more unique experience, check out the safari style canvas glamping tents. Located throughout the property, these tents offer the fresh air and exclusivity of camping, but are fully outfitted with electricity, a set of comfy beds, and lounge furniture!


Getting to the Ranch

Arriving is easy (and scenic) with round-trip transfers to/from the Missoula International Airport included in your rate.

Adventure in Every Season

Explore the changing fall colors of the Rockies on horseback. White water raft down the Blackfoot River while your husband fishes the banks for rainbow trout. Or grab the family and glide across the snow in a winter wonderland pulled by a team of Alaskan Huskies for a dog sledding adventure you’ll never forget.

Coastline Tips

Step out of your comfort zone and try something that scares you! I’m not typically an adrenaline junkie, but something about rappelling down a 170-foot rock face helps you reconnect to yourself and nature - I felt so alive!!

The cattle drive made me feel like I was in a scene of Yellowstone! The incredible wranglers made us feel like we were true cowboys.

Visiting in the winter? Grab a seat near the fire at Tank, Paws Up’s luxury cocktail bar, and enjoy happy hour while reliving your adventure of the day. Summer time visitors, dine al fresco and enjoy music with sprawling views of the rockies!


By the end of your time you will understand why Montana truly is The Last Best Place and have memories your family will cherish for a lifetime.
