FULL TIME PROPERTY MANAGER COUPLE NEEDED on site by Aug 22, 2018. 160 acre property north of Babb, MT approx 5 miles from the Canadian border and 12 miles from Glacier National Park. There are 4 residences (the caretaker house and 3 vacation rentals), a bunkhouse & shower house (vacation rental) and out buildings including a newer 30X30 shop, an alpaca pole barn, an older 4-stall barn. All are in good shape, needing general maintenance and repairs occasionally. The outbuildings need some painting and repairs. The fences are up but need maintenance and some replacement. There is also a lakeshore cabin 12 miles from the ranch that needs interior work. Equipment includes 3 ATVís, a new Kubota tractor with loader attachment, box blade and brush hog, a pickup for Ranch use. The equipment would require regular maintenance and upkeep.

There are seven alpaca and a llama. The alpacas are sheared annually by a professional shearer and their fiber processed. The Llama is sheared every other year.

The property consists of hayfields, a fenced horse pasture with water, and native grass grazing. There are areas of dense aspen. Most of the property is left wild to encourage wildlife, as it is part of a wildlife migration corridor between Glacier Park and the Sweet Grass Hills. The views are amazing. All in all, it is a beautiful piece of property, lots of potential. I work remote on a rotating schedule and do not have the time or skills to do the work needed. In addition to property repair/maintenance, the caretaker would be responsible for managing the Vacation Rentals which would include handling all reservations and correspondence, greeting and working with guests to ensure a pleasant stay, and providing housekeeping. A 2 night minimum is required, and most guests stay 3 Ė 4 nights, so it isnít a nightly turnover like a motel. Check the website ( for details on the vacation rentals, and reviews from previous guests.

I am looking for a couple that is self sufficient in living/working in a remote situation & has a positive attitude. Please be aware there are long hours in the summer months. Property skills needed are basic ranch skills including equipment operation and maintenance, building maintenance and repair, barb-wire fencing and land management including noxious weed management, animal care, and ability to relate to ranch guests.

Skills needed to manage the vacation rentals include guest services/hospitality experience, strong administrative skills and background, strong organizational skills, good verbal and written communication skills and computer skills. Flowers and gardening skills, & social media skills a big plus.

A valid driverís license is required, candidates must be drug free and pass a background check. A passport is needed if planning to go into Canada. All homes are smoke-free, pets are acceptable if not disruptive to the ranch guests. A two bedroom house would be provided and pasture if you have a horse or two. The house is all electric and I pay up to $120/mo for the electrical bill. A new well system was installed (it is good water), and I pay for garbage hauling. Satellite TV is available but not provided. The caretaker residence is a comfortable frame house, all appliances including a washer/dryer, hardwood floors, full basement for storing supplies, great views, approx 1040 sq ft each level. There is a wood stove installed to keep the heat bill down in the winter. I provide a cell phone and laptop w/ internet for Ranch business use and recordkeeping. I would like to get feeder steers for beef and would provide the caretaker one-quarter beef/year, and add chickens for fresh eggs. The property could be as self sufficient as a person would want.

The position is available Sept 1, 2018. If you are interested, please forward a resume, references and a recent photo to NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE. Please include what salary/compensation you would expect. Equal Opportunity Employer
