Arrive As Strangers. Leave As Friends.
Welcome to the Wilderness! We're stuck here so we might as well have some fun!! We are a small team, but dedicated and passionate about providing the best service possible in Catskills against the Lodge's amazing backdrop in the Big Indian Wilderness. Get a hike in before your dinner shift, get out onto the river after working breakfast or just see the stars at the fire pit--that's the Lodge!
Our 28 room boutique Lodge is located minutes from all slopes, trails and rivers of the Catskills Park in SE New York. We are nestled on 68 acres and are also only 2.5 hours from NYC. There are options for the best nature and city around!
About Urban Cowboy
We are the best of both worlds: endless hiking, camping or fishing in the beautiful Catskill Mountains and roughly 2 hours from NYC. Work with a passionate team doing inspiring things against the backdrop of the Urban Cowboy Lodge. Housing & Benefits are available. Options for both Management & Hourly Positions; Hospitality experience appreciated, but not necessary!
The Employee Experience
Each of us wears many hats day to day and you would be encouraged to do the same. That doesn't mean that you are working the Front desk one day and building a stone pathway the next, but it doesn't hurt if you would be willing... If you're a person of many talents or applicable hobbies maybe you are leading a tour, hosting an event, or creating unique programming for guests or locals alike.
The ideal candidate is someone who enjoys and excels at hospitality or may not even know it yet. We have a hotel, a busy restaurant, and regular events going at full steam 24/7 so there is a place here for everyone.
Room and Board
We maintain multiple housing options for employees. A minimum of 32 hours per week of work is required to secure housing and benefits. Dependent on the commitment of the staff member we can make other arrangements as well!
The Lodge is located minutes from all slopes, trails, and rivers of the Catskills Park in SE New York. We are also only 2.5 hours from NYC. There are options for the best nature and city around! There are discounts on Food, Drinks, and Rooms. You can stay the night and we want your friends and family too!
Getting Here and Getting Around
It is best to have transportation. There's a lot out there in the Catskills to do and you will need a car to get around to it all. Yes, we are in the center of it, but very much tucked away here so just getting out to the main road is a 5-10 minute drive, and to get groceries is another 20.
You can do it all. Really. There's so much here to do. Hiking, Camping, Climb, Fish or just sit still in and look at the stars. If it is outside it is here in the Catskills. You can do the middle of nowhere thing or jump into a really wonderful community of NYC transplants and dynamic locals. If all else fails to get your attention one weekend head to New York City--that's pretty self explanatory.
