The Cabins at Historic Columbine was originally established as a gold mining town in the late 1800s. We are a historic district on the national register of historic places. We operate as a resort with 14 historic cabins and an authentic general store.
We are in search of an individual, a couple, or two very compatible individuals to share housekeeping, general store, food trailer, reservation office and maintenance duties for 25 to 35 hours per week through the end of October. Compensation includes housing and will start at $13.00 per hour ($11.00 per hour with a $2.00 per hour bonus paid at the end of the employment period).
Our general store is open daily with traffic from our guests as well as tourists visiting the local state parks or hiking the numerous trails in the area. Our cabins are all unique and range from a single room with no bathroom to 3 bedrooms with multiple bathrooms. We have a modern lodge with restrooms, showers, and a gaming area that includes a pool, ping pong, and foosball. The property also includes a commercial kitchen that is available to rent for events and gatherings. We cut and split all of our firewood from the property and surrounding area. Beyond housekeeping and maintenance, our summer project goals include, but are not limited to: staining cabins; building an interpretive historic hiking trail; expanding the deck/patio area of our general store; updating and expanding landscaping and vegetation around the property; and forest cleanup.
The ideal candidates should enjoy living remotely in the mountainous outdoors. Housekeeping of our cabins is a significant portion of the duties and our cleaning standards are high. Attention to detail is key. Excellent guest/people skills are required, along with the ability to work with a small number of seasonal and resident staff. We are located at an elevation of 8,700 feet and duties are physically demanding. Opportunity exists to transition into a winter caretaker role.
A fully-furnished studio apartment with loft sleeping area, bathroom, kitchenette, and laundry facilities is provided. Bed linens, pillows, towels and all utilities are included. Pet friendly. Damage deposit required.
Getting Here and Getting Around
The Cabins are located 29 miles northwest of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. We request that you have your own reliable transportation. It is a 45-minute drive to the closest major grocery store.
North Routt County is an outdoor enthusiast paradise. Hiking, biking, fishing, standup paddle boarding, and kayaking are just a few of the opportunities in the area. We are located just minutes away from some of the most amazing parks and wilderness areas in Colorado: Steamboat Lake State Park, Pearl Lake State Park, Hahns Peak Lake, the Zirkel Wilderness, and Routt National Forest. Steamboat Lake is one of three lakes in Colorado to carry a gold medal designation for fishing. For off-roading enthusiasts, we have direct access from our property to hundreds of miles of 4x4 trails in the Routt National Forest.
Steamboat Springs is a quaint ski town with great restaurants and interesting shops. There are weekly rodeos, local festivals, free concerts, farmers' markets, and many other events throughout the summer.

- Our mission is to preserve the historical charm of Columbine while providing an unforgettable guest experience.
