Overnight wedding venue support
This opportunity is for one person (no pets) for the months May – October 2024.
You must be willing to commit to at least one month (optimally you would stay for the entire period). The property is located at the base of the Oregon coast range and consists of primarily forestland with pastures, creeks, a pond, springs and much more. The wildlife is abundant with beavers, otters, eagles, osprey, salmon (in the fall in our creek on the property), cougars, deer, elk and more. We have an amazing paved 21 mile bicycle trail (Banks-Vernonia State Trail) that runs through the middle of the property … so if you are a cycling enthusiast you will be very happy here. We are 3 miles down the bike trail from Stub Stewart State Park. Stub has a significant mountain biking trail complex, Frisbee golf course and much more.
We are located approximately 38 miles from Portland and 50 miles from Cannon Beach on the Oregon coast. We are also 6 miles down the bike trail from the small town of Vernonia which has most everything you need as far as supplies go. Given we are 30-40 miles to Beaverton-Portland, unless you plan on staying on the property most of the time, you will need to have a car given the limited public transportation out here. We can potentially give you a ride into Beaverton periodically, but it would be on our own schedule given we will need to be here to run the business. The best situation is to have your own car.
We have the expectation that you will work 25 hours per week (we are somewhat flexible on the schedule).
In exchange for the 25 hours of work we will provide you with a nice cabin with bedding and high quality ingredients for you to cook your own meals with. The cabin doesn’t have a bathroom or a kitchen. There is a new bathroom and shower building available for your use. You will use the food cart as your personal kitchen. We provide you with cooking ingredients so you can cook complete, healthy and good tasting meals (3 per day) for each of your work days. We do not provide beverages or junk food so please plan accordingly. There is room in the refrigerator for any food you would like to keep for yourself. The only cell coverage is through AT&T, however we have excellent broadband wifi that will allow you to do wifi calling.
The projects you will work on will involve:
- maintaining the gardens,
- cleaning yurts,
- helping to prepare food in the food cart for events,
- general cleaning (bathrooms, lodge etc.),
- watering, and or whatever else needs to be done.
Most of the work is not difficult and is very routine. We will provide you with a schedule you can follow. Once you are off and running you will be given freedom to complete most the tasks as you like with little oversight (we will confirm things are getting done properly each week). If you would like to also work part time in town to earn some extra money, we can most likely help you find a job.
Smoking is only allowed in outside designated areas only. If drugs and or alcohol are a problem for you to manage please do not contact us. It is very important that we can rely on you to complete your weekly tasks on a consistent and dependable basis. Thank you in advance for your understanding with our policy.
Smoking pot, drinking alcohol or taking drugs during working hours is not allowed under any circumstance due to safety considerations.
If you are traveling from another country, please make sure you have your travel visa for travel to the U.S. already approved before contacting us. We are not able to help you in getting your travel visa or work visa.
We will need to meet with you via a zoom or google meet call initially to make sure we are a good match for each other. All stays begin with a one-week trial to confirm both parties are satisfied with the arrangements. We have never had anyone not stay after the first week … but we think it is wise for both parties to have this option 🙂
What’s in it for you?
- Private cabin and food provided to preparer all meals.
- Broadband wifi.
- Bike for riding the Banks-Vernonia State Trail.
