Seeking a resident innkeeper for the Casa del Gavilan Historic Inn (The Nairn Place) in Cimarron, New Mexico. Completely surrounded by Philmont the Casa del Gavilan is a place of uncommon tranquility. The owners of the Casa (current and former Philmonters) are seeking a self-motivated individual or couple to operate the inn for 9-11 months per year. This is a hands-on position requiring the innkeeper to cook for up to 15 (with assistance), clean rooms, assist with laundry, and do a little light gardening. Housekeeping staff does most of the room cleaning but innkeeper will be responsible for some as well. Previous hospitality experience preferred but not essential. Non-smoker with no pets preferred.
Applicants must have superior references, excellent people skills, and be detail oriented to provide exceptional hospitality. Private suite is provided for on-site housing. Salary $15,000/year with January off. This position may also be available as an April 1 through October 31 annual contract if preferred by the right applicant. This is not a 9-5 position. Applicant must be comfortable living in a remote setting, and happy to provide hospitality 24/7 as required. It isn’t a lot of work but the work is spread out over the day with free time here and there.
