Three of the best restaurants in the area also within one to three miles and a coffee shop, too. Beautiful Otto Lake is just a 1/4 mile down the road where you can fish, swim and picnic. We also have a blow-up kayak for staff use. For the golfer, you will be one mile from a course that offers discounts to our staff. Lots of amazing hiking, river-rafting and a zip-line are just a few other activities available in the area.

We need someone that understands we are only a four-month season and the needs and demands come first and foremost.

Also, healthy and able to climb ladders to maintain the top of roofs and hang large property signs and all other repairs and duties as needed pertaining to general maintenance/groundskeeping that occur at a motel-style property. You will also be required to be on a flexible, daily schedule. The more you know and the more knowledge and experience you have and can do the higher your wage and the more hours we can provide. Your hours will vary based on needs/demands. Usually you will work between 25 - 35 flexible hours per week.
*Personal Hygiene is a must! We are a hospitality business selling clean rooms and associating closely with our guests. It is of utmost importance that all of our staff be clean, neat, bathed, sober and act in a professional, respectable manner at all times.
Please note: We are a small privately owned property working very closely with other staff and our guests. As a maintenance/groundskeeper, you may be called upon at anytime to fix/repair things and deal with guests and power tools, etc. Therefore, it is important to know that we are not a "Party Place" and we do have staff that are not of drinking age so we practice a zero tolerance to drinking in or around guests and other staff and excessive drinking of any kind. Drugs are prohibited and grounds for immediate termination.
Room and Board: We pay an above average wage and our staff enjoy private housing at the daily cost of a latte. Shared bathrooms and kitchen. Free WiFi.
Our 2023 season runs from May 26th - September 18th.
*IMPORTANT: We need our staff to arrive a few days early if possible to settle in and get things up and running and depart a few days later to close the property down. So, plan on arriving on or about May 22nd and departing on or about September 22nd.
Our staff size is typically between 12-14 people. We are all about teamwork! We work hard but have lots of fun and enjoy a beautiful setting surrounded by mountains and moose.
