Ready to Apply?

We thank you for your interest in a position at Vista Verde Ranch. In considering an opportunity here, you should be aware of a few important considerations. As former staff members will attest, working at Vista Verde is a wonderful and rewarding experience. To be successful at it, however, you must realize that we are here for one reason – to ensure that our guests have a fantastic vacation. In order for this to happen, you should be certain you have:

  • A genuine interest in people and in serving their needs.
  • A sense of responsibility and a strong work ethic.
  • An ability to be a team player with the other staff.
  • A love of the outdoors, and a concern for animals and nature.

Our summer season runs from mid-May through mid-October. Preference is given to those applicants able to show up mid-May and commit through the end of August and beyond. Our winter season runs from mid-December through the end of March. Because we are in the hospitality business, we work when most others vacation. Therefore, all winter applicants must be available to work over the holiday season.

Our staff is the single most important factor in seeing that our guests have a memorable vacation. Your understanding of this and the above qualifications is critical to the success of the ranch as well as a condition of employment, as you might expect.

With that out of the way, we would like to learn a little about you!

Please submit the following application:

If you would like to include a resume and brief cover letter (telling us why you want to work at the ranch and what strengths or skills you have that will contribute to the ranch and to our guests) you are welcome to, but it is not required.

Please submit this application (along with an optional cover letter and resume) one of the following ways:
