We are looking for a couple to care for our Aspen CO private home and ranch, and to stay for the long-term. Teams with hands-on experience (ie having done the work with their own two hands vs. managing others who do the work) should apply. Pay range is $40k-$50k per team member ($80-$100k combined salary) and also includes a beautiful caretaker cabin on site. Only teams should apply. Duties are divided between the Ranch Manager and Household Manager as follows:

Ranch Manager:

  • Horse Care – scheduling vet and farrier, de-worming, spray, exercising, tacking up and grooming for owner for 3-4 horses
  • Pasture Care – fence building and repair, fertilizing, seeding, cutting, thistle removal, irrigation
  • Landscape Care – mowing, tree cutting, trail repair and building, irrigation, ditch maintenance and repair
  • Building Care – general maintenance and fixing when issues arise
  • Machine Care – small engine maintenance and troubleshooting (tractor, lawn mower, four wheelers, etc.)
  • Car maintenance – clean & make sure vehicles are ready for use
  • **please note that the Ranch Manager duties are fairly intense while the snow is melted, this property is in 'build' phase and over the coming years will move more into a maintenance phase.

Household Management:

  • Household care – cleaning, some cooking & food prep, order groceries and supplies, laundry
  • Childcare – some childcare as needed (driving kids to school/ activities, some babysitting)
  • Vendor Management – schedule vendors as needed, meet on-site, etc.
