About The Home Ranch

The Home Ranch is always looking for enthusiastic individuals to fill its staff ranks. If you love working with people and appreciate the beauty of the Colorado Rockies, perhaps you would be interested in a job at our guest ranch. During the staff's summer at The Home Ranch they can enjoy fly fishing the Elk River, hiking in the Zirkel Wilderness, horseback riding through Routt National Forest, helping in the garden, floating the Yampa River, or biking north to Steamboat Lake. 

The Employee Experience

The employee experience here at The Home Ranch is one our employees never forget. The staff love to enjoy bonfires throughout the week and indulge in outdoor recreation while they are not working. Whether its a moonlight hike to the hot springs, backpacking through Zirkels Wilderness, or going out to dance, the staff are very active and take full advantage of their time here in beautiful Clark. The relationships last well after one leaves the ranch and often brings returners back to work another great season. 

Staff also join guests for a campfire dinner every week where they get to mingle and play yard games with the guests. Many guests look forward to returning and interacting with our staff.

We desire employees who love the outdoors, people, teamwork, and who are eager and willing to jump in to lend a hand wherever or whenever needed on the ranch.
