Ranch Hand

Welcome to the place that inspired A River Runs Through It

  • 20 May 2013

Face it: Most situations in life would vastly improve if you had a butler.

Like camping. Those s’mores aren’t going to make themselves, right?

Your butler now awaits you in the great outdoors, via Cliffside Camp, taking reservations now and opening June 1st.

Located in central Montana, Cliffside is part of The Resort at Paws Up, a luxe glamping destination smack dab in the middle of 37,000 acres of pristine wilderness.

It’s all rather breathtaking: this is the area that inspired “A River Runs Through It.” It’s where Lewis & Clark stopped to take a breather during their legendary travails.

Cliffside is the resort’s latest tenting endeavor: six luxe safari tents perched atop a cliff overlooking the Blackfoot River.

As big as a nice Manhattan apartment (up to 1,000 square feet!) is, these one- and two-bedroom pavilions feature all the nicest amenities: real beds, ensuite bathrooms, copper tubs, heated slate flooring, private decks, wireless – even air conditioning.

Cliffside Camp

Also at hand: a private camp chef and, yes, a personal butler, who the camp insists will "prepare gourmet s’mores” on demand.

When you’re not utilizing Cliffside’s fireside help, enjoy a near infinite array of outdoor activities: fly fishing, rappelling down cliff faces, sports clay shooting, whitewater rafting, ATV riding, horseback riding and golf. Plus, some special dining events.

You can even herd cattle, if you want.

Better yet, just ask Jeeves to do it.
