Spend your summer on the river! - Welaka, FL

Posted: 12/3/2017 - 9:34 pm

We will need several workamper couples beginning April 1, 2018 and staying through November 1, 2018.  Dates are negotiable.  (WE DO NOT HAVE NEED OF WINTER HELP AT THIS TIME).

We are a small, pleasant “Old Florida” resort with a pool heated during chilly weather and cooled during hot spells, a huge community spa, 8 gorgeous cottages and 19 full hookup RV sites in the rural town of Welaka.  The resort is situated on a bluff over the St. John’s River with a view of the Ocala National Forest directly across the river.

In exchange for working, we offer a full hookup site with paid electricity, free wi fi and ½ price at our Boathouse Bar on the river.  (Please note that we do not offer monetary compensation).

Schedules are made on Friday based on the number of cottages we need to clean, so there are not set work days. We are always off on Saturdays and do try to schedule couples together. Some weeks we work fewer hours & others more, but hours would average 20 hours per week per couple, so there is plenty of time for fishing, shopping, touring the area or just floating in the pool. Many afternoons are spent at the pool with other workampers and guests.

In most cases, the gentlemen handle outdoor light maintenance such as pool cleaning, blowing leaves off cottage porches, checking hot tubs, etc. Ladies spend most of their hours cleaning our beautiful cottages.

On Sunday afternoons from March through mid-November, we have the grill open at the Boathouse Bar serving chicken & fish sandwiches, hamburgers, fries, brats & hot dogs. The bar is also open for beautiful sunsets on Friday & Saturday evenings when we serve light snacks such as pizza, hummus and toasted pita bread, salsa & chips or fish dip and crackers.
