WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

Our RV Resort is seeking a 9-month full-time manager couple in beautiful North Idaho (No singles please). We own a small, 43-unit RV resort which is semi-seasonal (we always have a hand-full of folks that winter over) and have a few camping cabins. We have a wonderful little fresh water 3-acre lake, big pine trees, and great amenities. We are located 22 miles north of Sandpoint , Idaho and 8 miles south of Bonners Ferry. This area is many times described as little Alaska! It has the similar sort of beauty, mountains, water and animals (moose, elk, bear), with really long summer days, but weather and ruggedness not severe like Alaska. There is tons of water-ways and hiking in the area, and Eastern Washington has a wonderful desert-like rock-basin environment so unlike North Idaho, but very close by and a great place to visit in Spring. Our Resort is 25 miles to the base of Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort and the gigantic Lake Pend Oreille. It is a great area to own a boat or kayaks! The Canadian Border is 30 miles away and has great lakes, skiing, and hot springs nearby. Banff, Canada, and Glacier National Park is about 3 hours away. The owners will be also living on-site working in the park and covering the managers days off as well.

A 750 square foot, one bedroom, one bath apartment with large walk-in pantry is included year-around with the position, even though you will be off for 3-months of the year. If has a great balcony with a view of the lake and the resort around you. Your salary will be also year-around, even though you won't be working 3 months of the year and with minimal duties another 3 months of the year. 

As a couple, your duties are all encompassing. In the summers (mid June thru mid September), expect long days getting up a 6:30am to check the bathrooms and watering lawns, weeding flower beds, and enjoying the cool mornings. Your day will end at 5pm when the campground hosts relieve you at 5pm. Many times you can relieve each other for breaks and even the occasional swim when you hit a slow spell! You will have 2 days off per week for yourselves.

Our main focus of the park is cleanliness and professional friendly customer service. If you can fill these requirements and both of you are diligent workers, you may work out very well here! This is a wonderful opportunity for a couple that wants to live a easy life in the countryside, or as an opportunity to get some very good professional managerial experience to go on later to some of the big resort that pay their managers the big bucks! 

Both applicants must be physically able to go up and down the stairs many times per day, clean, rake, walk a lot, and lift/move/setup/clean and occasionally lift up to 50 pounds. A handy person would be best fit with a partner who has good customer service and/or customer/retail experience. RV knowledge & basic computer experience is mandatory for this position.

Your pay will including housing with all utilities included Wifi and laundry. You will also receive $1000 per month, year around, even though you won't be working or working full time for 6-months of the year. You are free to stay or leave the resort for your three months off. We tend to negotiate those 3 months depending on the plans of the managers and the owners, but will always be in the months of Nov/Dec/Jan/Feb/Mar. We also offer a Simple IRA retirement plan with matching funds. We do not offer a health plan at this time, but will contribute up to $200 per month if you have the Affordable Health Care Act Plan or private health insurance.   

Your hours will greatly fluctuate depending on the time of year. In the 3-month busy season, you may be working 50-60 hours per week with long days. In the shoulder season, a typical 40- hour week is all that is needed for Spring and Fall clean up, and taking reservations and dealing with a few guests that are popping in.  In the three months of winter, you will primarily just be taking some reservations for the next season, and occasionally plowing the drive or helping the few winter guests we have- maybe a few hours per week. Most winter days are pretty much your own and you can come and go from the resort at your leisure. You may do what you wish on your three months off.

We do have a 4-month trial period for which you will need your RV to stay at the park and train/work this year. During the training period (about 1 month) you will work 2-3 hours each morning, 5 days a week training with the owners. During the training period, you will receive free space rent and utilities only. After the training period, you will have about 2 months working 25 hours per week at $500 per month. Your final period will be to run the park by yourselves for September and October at $1000 per month. The owners will be in and out during this period. You will work with pay through October. The actual job will start April 1, 2020. You are free to leave after October until April, 2020, or stay on with your RV and work part-time for space rent until April. In April, you will begin a full work schedule and $1000 a month. You can move into the Managers Apartment on June 1st, 2020.

We are a wonderfully quiet boomers summer resort with a nightly happy hour wine bar deck and senior focused amenities. This is a unique opportunity for couples who don't have much debt, are young-ly retired, or who want to have the freedom to have 3-months vacation a year!
