High Adventure Ranch
We are looking for an individual or couple to live on our 160 acre property near Walden, CO, as caretakers/property managers. This is a second home for our family and we are there most weekends. Part of your responsibilities would include monitoring our home during our absence, as well as checking on our outdoor cats during the winter months.
The property is located at 9000 feet elevation and is accessible year round. However, winters are long, cold, and snowy, and snow removal and road upkeep are priority. You would need to be able to operate a skid steer, dump truck with plow, and CAT backhoe. The entire property is fenced and the fence line must be maintained during the summer to keep out the free-range cattle. Moose are frequent visitors to the property and often pull down fencing. In addition, trees often come down on the fence line or across roads so you will need experience with chainsaws. There are seven lakes and a river that flows through the property, all of which will need to be monitored.
You would receive a small monthly income based on the experience and skills you would bring to the job. However, your primary compensation would include staying on-site in a 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath, log, caretaker home. The home is currently furnished, but furniture can be moved to the basement for storage. We would also cover your utilities, phone, and internet service.
We see this position as being ideal for a retired individual or couple, who are currently drawing social security or a retirement income, who love the outdoors and country living, and who would be interested in supplementing their income by helping to care for this beautiful property. No smoking or drug use (legal or otherwise) will be accepted. We would consider a pet or two. If you are interested, please send us your resume with a cover letter introducing yourself. Please also include three references. The position will be open September 1st.
