For dogs with a discriminating taste for travel, perhaps a weekend at The Resort at Paws Up is in order. This ultimate luxury destination, designed with you and your canine best friend in mind, welcomes you both for its Annual Wine & Bitch Weekend festivities this November 14-16 in Greenough, Montana.

Complete with fashion show, wellness seminar, spa treatments (yes, pup massage too), a dog parade, gourmet treats (for people) and Sonoma’s own Mutt Lynch wines, this is not your standard getaway. In fact, this all-inclusive three day, two night package welcomes two adults and their dog to the recipient of the esteemed “Grand Award” named in Andrew Harper’s 2008 Hideaway Report. It was one of only three resorts in the U.S. to win this highly regarded honor and has won many other prestigious travel awards as well.

Named by its owners for the friendly “paws up” greeting dogs offer to visitors, the resort’s 37,000-acre property of spectacular wilderness welcomes your pup with “Doggie Amenities” to die for. Indulge in a plush bed, lovely bowls, Nutro food and homemade treats, a convenient outdoor kennel, even a Paws Up collar and leash.

Prices start at $1,817 for two people and one dog for two nights, but did we mention the free airport transfers and on-property transportation? Really, it’s best not to think about the money. After all, can you really put a price on a splendid weekend away with your best friend?

If you can’t make it this November, find another time to get there – dogs are always welcome for a $50 surcharge and still get to indulge in the doggie amenities and of course, the great outdoors.
