Howdy! You might remember our story on Dude Ranches, where we focused on incredible family vacations. Today we are bringing you the luxurious Green O-an adults only Dude Ranch, nestled on the 37,000 acre Paws Up Ranch.
The Green O came about it’s name after an early rancher, Paul Greenough, decided to brand his sheep with a big green “O”. Mr. Greenough had a sense of humor.
Since then, the Green O has had many owners, including Land and Jon Lindbergh. In 1997, its new and current owner purchased the original 3,800 acres and expanded the property to a an incredible 37,000 acres! It is a working cattle and bison ranch.
The Green O is located in a remote township called Greenough, Montana. After flying into Missoula International Airport, you have a quick 30 minute drive to the ranch. For those looking to adventure on and off the ranch, you can rent a car. However, the Green O provides complimentary transportation to and from the airport, for all those looking to stay and explore on-site.
You will find 12 homes nestled throughout the secluded woodscape. Each Haus offers privacy for 2-a sanctuary among the trees.
