The Cabins at Historic Columbine was originally established as a gold mining town in the late 1800’s. We are a historic district on the national register of historic places. Currently, we operate as a resort with14 historic cabins and an authentic general store.
We are in search of a couple or two very compatible individuals to share maintenance, housekeeping, general store, and reservation office duties. We also cut, and split all of our firewood from the property and surrounding area. 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 pool, ping pong, and foosball. The property also includes a commercial kitchen that is available to rent for events and gatherings. This summer, our 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. 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 8,700ft and duties are physically demanding. Our tasks begin mid-May, but are somewhat flexible. Opportunity exists to transition into a winter caretaker role.

Housing available is a one bedroom, one bathroom, fully furnished apartment. The bedroom can be arranged with a queen bed or 2 twin beds. Includes a full kitchen as well as laundry facilities. Bed linens, pillows, and towels are provided. Pet friendly. Damage deposit required.
