McGinnis Meadows Ranch is looking for a very special individual to join our crew from April until at least the end of November/December.

We are looking for an individual to perform the duties as our ranch cook, as well as overall caretaker for our main lodge. This means maintaining the cleanliness of the dining room, kitchen, and common areas. Basically, the lodge (and the kitchen inside it) will be your domain!

Our season is very eclectic this year. We have a running staff of around 10, plus 2-3 interns at a given time. We will be hosting one 10-day guest event per month, with guest numbers anywhere from 10-18. During the month of July, we are hosting Buck Brannaman and will be hosting two 6-day guest weeks rather than one-10-day.

Basically, it’s hearty upscale. 5 course ranch meals during the times we are hosting guests. We DO accommodate special diets and tend to have quite a few requests for them. In addition, we offer a deluxe continental breakfast (with hot grab and and go items), and a prepared sack lunch during these guest experiences. Don’t worry—you WILL have help during these times!

For the other ~20 days of the month, the schedule is quite a bit more relaxed, as you will only be cooking basic dinners for the staff, doing food orders, catching up on any projects, etc. We do have a couple of months where we have a few “stayover” guests, but they will be on the same schedule/program as our staff.

Clear as mud? Don’t worry, we would love to talk to you on the phone to answer your questions and give you more information!

In the meantime, here is a bit more info to get you started:

We are a cattle and guest ranch and we host guests from all over the world! Customer service is a priority for all of our staff members. We have an open kitchen, so you’ll meet wonderful people. You won’t get bored with the same meal syndrome as we like to encourage a varied and creative ranch-style menu.

You will be surrounded by a staff of like-minded, high energy and friendly people. We work hard and play hard…out here they are one in the same to us!

The ideal candidate will be very detail oriented, a self-motivator, a problem solver, friendly, fit enough to be on your feet, organized, and able to take direction.

This position is best suited to someone who enjoys the outdoors and a remote location. Must have own vehicle. We are 40 minutes from the nearest small town, about an hour from the city of Kalispell and about 2 hours from Glacier National Park. This is a great area for hiking and mountain biking! There is no cell service on the ranch but we do have wifi and landlines. Room and board is provided. You will receive tips on top of your salary, and we offer an end-of-season bonus as well. Salary DOE.
