Unique Family Resort Destination on Priest Lake, Idaho
This unique family resort destination on Priest Lake was established by George Hill in 1946. The resort itself is comprised of both cabins and condos. In our peak summer months these rent on a weekly basis. We also have a large full service bar, an award winning restaurant and a stunning deck. Most importantly, we offer our guests a truly remarkable experience.
We're located in northern Idaho's upper panhandle, along the shores of Priest Lake.
About Hill's Resort
Priest Lake is best known for its pristine waters and stunning surrounding. Tucked away in Luby Bay, our guests, and staff alike enjoy days spent basking on the dock and beach, golfing, hiking and biking our endless trails, and cruising the waters on your vessel of choice (boat, kayak, canoe, or floaty). Nights are spent around a campfire eating s'mores, enjoying a cocktail, or dancing to live music on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Working in such a remote location is truly all a part of the experience. We are looking for those dynamite personalities who are willing to play hard but work harder. Our summer guests begin arriving in June with our busiest months being July through September. We can usually accommodate for most schedules and several of our positions are available through mid October.
The Employee Experience
Work together, play together, live together! That is our motto.
Our team consists of people from all over the United States; some employees live at Priest Lake full time, while others come up just for the summer months. Some have never been to Priest Lake before and others have been coming their whole lives. With such a diverse group of people, we can guarantee that you will make friends that last a lifetime and experience a summer you will never forget!
Our ideal candidate is a go-getter. Our season is short and we pack in long hours of hard work. We are looking for self-motivated detail oriented people. We expect our staff to take pride in their work, to create a relationship and experience with our guests, and provide the best service possible.
Our summer season starts in May with business escalating until our peak in July and August and then we taper off until October 15th. From mid October through mid March our lodging is open full time but our restaurant cuts back to Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Our restaurant is closed entirely from Mid March through April with lodging still available. Applicants with the longest availability dates will be given first consideration.
