Historic Monhegan Island is a step back in time to the way life should be. 10 miles off of Mid Coast Maine, Monhegan is 1.75 miles long by 3/4 of a mile wide. It sounds small but with 70% of the Island is in a land trust, 17 miles of hiking trails, and the highest coastal cliffs on the East Coast of the United States it makes Monhegan seem so much larger. Artists have painted the views of this Island for 150 years, making Monhegan one of the most painted places in New England. With a small lobster village right on the Harbor surrounded by summer and year-round homes and businesses, you would think you had traveled back in time. A year-round population of 50 people with a 1 room school house, the population swells to around 500 people during the summer not including people who come just for the day. There are not many places like this.Shining Sails is a 7-room B&B with a 4-room annex building, The Inn at Fish&Maine. We offer rooms with Ocean Views, kitchens, private baths, and private decks. We are looking for a housekeeper for the season from approximately June 1-October 15. This is a seasonal job. Housing and breakfast is included. Housing is a small 2-bedroom apartment with a shared common area and a small kitchenette on the premises. We usually have 2 housekeepers, a Truck driver and 3 office people as staff. We are hands on owners in a tight-knit community with no crime!

Do some research on Monhegan Island as we are remote and this may not be for you. We want our employees to know where they are coming too and to be happy they came.
