In this day and age when a Nintendo Wii is often a hotel's key kids' offering, The Resort at Paws Up is a standout. Located on 37,000 acres of Montana wilderness known for its world-class fly-fishing, this luxurious mountain retreat offers bond-building opportunities such as horseback riding, river rafting and rappelling. Activities for kids are organized by age, which means Mom and Dad can take their one-year-old on a carriage ride or send their seventeen-year-old off for a day of supervised paintball, hot air ballooning, geocaching or wrangling. The Kids Corps of Discovery is a special half-day or day-long program for children from five to twelve and includes trips to a ghost town and ranch experiences such as rope tying and lasso techniques. When it comes to accommodations , the rustic-chic lodges and luxe tents are to-die-for, but we recommend the private homes that come with individual tents, which the little ones are sure to love.
