WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

Hostel of Maine is looking for an excellent, down to earth yet detail oriented Management Team/Couple to join our small team. We are ideally looking for a full year committment, but are open to seasonal applicants. We’ve had a phenomenal first year+ in business and are looking for the right folks to grow our dedicated staff.

Our ideal candidates will have:

Hospitality & some management experience.

A true passion for making guests feel welcome & well taken care of.

Great computer & phone skills.

A positive & professional demeanor.

A keen eye for details.

A strong work ethic & self starter mentality; you will frequently be working without direct supervision.

Confidence to take charge; you will be the head of house frequently when owners are away and we need to know you can handle anything that might arise in a cool, calm, and collected manner.

A valid drivers license & great record (we operate a transportation service during the summer/fall)

 

It’s a huge bonus if you also have experience and/or interest in social media, building/renovation projects, cooking/baking, bartending, gardening, and/or event planning!

 

We operate a relaxed, low-key 33 bed hospitality establishment with quality of space & guest experience being paramount. This business is a boutique hostel/bed & breakfast hybrid as we have a combination of room types and high quality space that appeals to many types of guests; from solo travelers to groups of friends and families, wedding parties, and Appalachian Trail thru hikers. We have a great rate of repeat guests because they know they’ll feel comfortable, well taken care of and truly at home here (Hostel of Maine = HoME, get it?!). Many of our guests literally send us holiday cards & thank you notes - it’s pretty incredible. HoME is dog friendly (in private rooms) so please be a dog lover!

 

Our primary staff consists of owner/operator couple Melanie & Justin as well as two year round team members & seasonal staff who focus primarily on housekeeping, light bartending & continental breakfast service. We each wear all the hats when necessary and would expect you to do the same; on slower days as the primary on site team you will be responsible for all day to day aspects of running HoME. We’re highly focused on efficiency & environmental sustainability so hope you also have a passion for these things or willingness to learn.

 

We’re busy year round (with brief closures in May & November for our own rest, relaxation & projects) with our primary demographic being outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. Experience with or interest in the Appalachian Trail, skiing/snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking, and other outdoor activities will greatly benefit you in this role and locale! You’ve probably never heard of Carrabassett Valley, but it’s a remarkable place if you love all that nature has to offer. If you’re looking for nightlife, this isn’t your spot. We’re at the base of (in our humble opinion…) the best & most down to earth ski resort in the East, Sugarloaf. We’re also minutes away from hundreds of miles of incredible trail networks for year round recreation and Flagstaff Lake.

There is no limit to the advancement potential of this role as we view Hostel of Maine: Carrabassett Valley as our model for additional locations within the state (someday..). On site housing (private bedroom, semi-private bathroom & living space) is available but not required and a dog that would do well in a hospitality environment (aka incredibly well trained & social with all other dogs & humans) is welcome. Our dog is in pure heaven living here and if yours wants a 5 acre backyard and all the attention in the world, he/she probably would be too.

In addition to housing a weekly salary is provided. We also provide annual, year round membership to Maine Huts & Trails system, the local gym at the AntiGravity Center, a discounted season pass to Sugarloaf, and a flexible schedule with a minimum of 5 weeks (unpaid) vacation a year. All applicants must be willing to undergo a background check and be legally able to work in the United States.
