Positions Available Resort Wide - Live & Work in a Pacific Northwest Paradise this Summer & Fall!

Located on beautiful Orcas Island in Washington State's San Juan Islands, Rosario Resort & Spa has long been a favorite destination for travelers seeking relaxation and unparalleled beauty in the Pacific Northwest.

Rosario Resort & Spa is located on beautiful Orcas Island- home to small farms and artist enclaves and often referred to as "the gem of the San Juan Islands". Most arrive by state ferry - a quick hour long ride from Anacortes, a port city just 2 hours north of Seattle, WA. Orcas Island sees long, temperate days during the summer with a shift into relatively mild, dry weather in the winter.

About Rosario Resort & Spa

Comfortable San Juan Islands vacation accommodations are provided along the waterfront near the resort's centerpiece, the historic Moran Mansion. The Mansion's hillside location above Rosario's Marina overlooks a stunning panorama of forested mountains and pristine shorelines. Built between 1906-1909 by Seattle mayor and shipbuilder Robert Moran, the Moran Mansion is listed on the National Historic Register and houses the resort's Mansion Dining Room, Moran Lounge, Bay Boutique, Moran Museum and The Spa.

Rosario Resort & Spa is a member of the Historic Hotels of America and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Employee Experience

The height of our season runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day each year, although we are open 7 days per week all year round. Staff live together in affordable shared housing provided by the resort. Options include dormitory style housing either a stones throw away from the nearby State Park or within walking distance from the local town, directly on the water's edge.

Employees are welcome to take advantage of many provided perks, including discounts on retail, dining and spa memberships. Throughout the years countless seasonal staff have ultimately found a home here on the island, as year-round employment is often an option come the end of the season.

Those who most enjoy their time here at Rosario take advantage of the various outdoor activities available including kayaking, hiking, camping, fishing, whale watching and island hopping. Passengers can walk on for free to explore any of the major San Juan islands via the Washington State Ferry system.
