As ex­quis­ite a blend of rus­tic­ity and lux­ury as may be found any­where, The Re­sort at Paws Up has be­come a des­ti­na­tion for many fun things since its in­cep­tion in 2005—wed­dings, fly-fish­ing, cat­tle driv­ing and lively fam­ily bond­ing among them. But this 37,000-acre prop­erty, 35 min­utes out­side Mis­soula, Mont., is rapidly be­com­ing best known as a place to eat. Re­cent vis­i­tors have in­cluded Wayne Mueller of the leg­endary Louie Mueller Bar­be­cue in Texas; Chicago’s Char­lie McKenna, a lead­ing light of neo-south­ern cui­sine; and Brooke Wil­liamson, a Top Chef star out of Los Angeles. This year the re­sort started a se­ries called Cook­book Live, wherein big-time chefs visit and spend a few days show­ing you, up close, how they make their magic. Check the sched­ule and make a reser­va­tion; after a day on horse­back, fol­lowed by a hot stone mas­sage with rocks pulled from the Black­foot River, you’re bound to have an ap­petite. Rates from $1,215 per night, paw­sup.com

The din­ing pav­il­ion at the re­sort’s Cliff­side Camp over­looks the con­flu­ence of the Black­foot River and Elk Creek.
