The Island Inn is a well-established seasonal hotel (since 1907) and restaurant located 11 miles offshore of Mid Coast Maine on beautiful Monhegan Island - an unspoiled nature lover's paradise of woods, cliffs and rocky shores, and a small community of fishermen and artists. Most of Monhegan Island is preserved as a conservation area with 12 miles of hiking trails around the highest headland cliffs on the East Coast and endless rocky coves.  The Island Inn has 32 guest rooms, and an artist residence (Zimmie’s).  In addition, the hotel operates an in-house 60 seat fine-dining restaurant and a free-standing café, the Barnacle.

The Island Inn, a historic, seasonal hotel on Monhegan, seeks full-time Housekeepers to join our team. Housekeeping is a critical reason why many of our guests have been returning to the Island Inn for decades and even generations.  The Hotel has simple, well furnished rooms without air-conditioning, televisions or spas.  What we offer is impeccably clean rooms, incredible views and outstanding food.  We do this with a Housekeeping team that provides personal, professional services to guests who sincerely appreciate the extra touches we bring. Become part of that incredible team, combining team-based hard work with 5 months of adventure in a truly unique location! All jobs average 40 hrs a week based on 6 days work schedule.

If you enjoy a friendly team-based work environment, creative space, and breathtaking nature, we encourage you to apply. Our remote location requires that you live on-premises. Like the hotel, all staff rooms are clean, freshly painted, simply furnished with WiFi.  Though the rooms are private, each full bath is shared among 2-3 rooms.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner meals are prepared in our hotel kitchen providing healthy and nourishing options. The housing, meals, laundry facilities and WiFi are all provided at no charge.  
Please note that free housing and meals are currently valued at an additional $5 to your hourly rate. 


Must be available to work through October 10th, 2022.
