Live + Work Career Opportunity With Housing

Mount 7 Lodges is a year round lodge operation a short drive south of Golden, BC. Located on over 60 acres of private land our three lodges are offered to guests for short term rental. Each lodge offers guests accommodation with comfortable bedrooms, ensuite bathrooms and large living areas including full kitchens, dining areas and living rooms. Each lodge also has a private deck with its own hot tub, BBQ and two of the lodges have fire pits for guest use.

Developed and owned by a couple (Jo-Anne and Dave Best), after nearly 20 years in business we now have an exciting and unique opportunity for one or two people to join us to help run the business and maintain the property.

The Role(s)
This year round role (or roles) will work alongside the owners to support and assist them across all day-to-day operations. This opportunity is for those who are seeking a peaceful lifestyle on a beautiful property, helping to enhance our guest’s experiences and maintaining our property.

Responsibilities can be broken down into four key areas of the business:

Guest Services
Guest services responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

All lodges are cleaned after each checkout, often on the same day prior to the next check-in. Cleaning includes:

Additional cleaning is required as time allows, including:

On a daily basis all hot tubs are checked and maintained and they are emptied and refilled as required.

Lodge & Property Maintenance

In addition to the regular maintenance tasks and those that must be done as required, there are additional projects that need to be carried out on a project basis. Examples of these include:

In addition to tasks relating to the guests, building and property management, the owners also have a dog and three horses and help with them is sometimes required.

Who We Are Looking For
We are looking for a passionate and energetic hospitality professional or professionals who can contribute their skills to the ongoing management of Mount 7 Lodges. Applicants must have relevant experience and be self-starters, problem-solvers and keen to learn. This is a drama free environment. People who take direction well but can also work and learn independently will thrive in this role. This opportunity is best fit for those who are looking to get away from the fray, stay active and productive, and enjoy rural living in the Canadian Rockies.

Additional Skills & Experience Which Will Be Beneficial:

As the responsibilities and remuneration are not sufficient to support two people in full time work, it is expected that this role will either suit one person who has a broad range of skills and is looking for an equivalent to a full-time role, or it will suit two people who wish to split the role between them, and allow them to have time for other commitments.

To deliver effectively in this role(s), the successful candidate(s) will live on site. There is a two / three bedroom + two bathroom log house on the property that is available for rent to the successful applicant(s). See further details below.

Due to the nature of the responsibilities, this role(s) requires a person or people who can offer flexibility in relation to working days and hours. Summer is typically the busiest season. Winter is also busy and requires snow clearing as mother nature dictates. Spring and Fall, whilst somewhat quieter in the lodges, are a busy time for property management projects. Cleaning is done on the same day that guests check-out and needs to be completed before the next guests arrive. When on shift, phone calls and emails need to be handled as they happen.

The role(s) will be working alongside the owners to ensure that all jobs are completed as required and as such it is expected that a schedule can be discussed and developed that works for everyone.

Compensation & Benefits

House Rental
It is required that the successful applicant(s) live on the property. Along with the lodges and the owner’s house, there is a log house available for rent. The house has an open plan living room, dining area and kitchen and has a separate boot room with lots of room for gear storage. Upstairs it has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a large landing. There is an additional room with laundry and a separate bathroom downstairs. The additional room downstairs could be used as an extra bedroom or a study, office or media room. There is a large deck with built-in BBQ and parking for two to three cars. There is also a large greenhouse and established vegetable garden.

The house is fully furnished but furniture can be stored if you have your own furniture.

The house can accommodate two to three people comfortably but cannot be rented to more than three people.

As Mount 7 Lodges has been developed as a place of peace and quiet where guests can come to relax, it is expected that the house tenants will respect this style of living.

Monthly Rent: $2000 per calendar month

Rent includes:

Rent does not include hydro bills.

No parties, no smoking.
