Facility Services

Uphold presentation standards through maintaining Ranch facilities, setting event spaces, and creating clean and welcoming accommodations.  If you have janitorial/housekeeping experience and enjoy fast-paced, physical work you will find this position a stimulating challenge. Success requires an eye for detail, the ability to organize and a desire to make things look their best.

Food Service

Courteous service and a genuine smile makes a delicious meal a memorable event!  An eye for presentation, a commitment to cleanliness, and a desire to create a welcoming dining experience are the pathway to success in this position. If you are jazzed by guest interaction and going the extra mile, this is the team for you! Established procedures will get you up and running in no time.

Ranch Hand

Green pastures, tight fences, and clean pens are the proof of a first class outfit!  If you grew up on a ranch or farm and have hands-on experience in irrigation, fencing, and livestock care, we would welcome your application! Best suited for those with a strong work ethic and a self-directed work style. Some saddle-time included.


Sharing the beauty of Sylvan Dale on the back of a horse – it doesn’t get any better than that!  You have to know your stuff when dealing with horses and inexperienced riders.  Only apply if you have strong horsemanship skills and some experience at a guest ranch, horse facility, or riding stable.  Highly physical position requiring strength, stamina, and the gift of gab!

Full time seasonal wranglers needed – lodging and meals provided, as well as a portion of our tip pool!
