Seeking only one person November-March. March to October, seeking 2+ people. Longer stays preferred.

Come enjoy the mountain air in the town of Mestia high in the mountains of Svaneti, Georgia. There is great hiking here, skiing in the winter, and the views are magnificent. We are Manoni, Keso, Irakli, and Nelly the cow. You will be part of the family here and will be able to experience the culture of Georgia as well as meeting travelers from all over the world.

A native English speaker is preferred, but you must be able to speak English at least at a conversational level. A plus if you speak Russian or Georgian (but not required).

Right now during low season, we seek one person to help during the week. Starting in late Spring, we seek two or more people for help. You will be helping in the daily tasks of maintaining a guesthouse: cleaning rooms and bathrooms, helping guests, checking people in, and answering questions. If you know how to milk a cow, Nelly needs to be milked as well. In spring and summer, we also need help in the garden. You will be required to work mornings to help with cleaning. Sometimes, we need you in afternoons also to be here when guests arrive. You will have one day off each week.

We seek people who are hardworking, sociable, outgoing, and friendly with guests.

During low season, you will have your own room. During high season, people can either have a bed in a dorm or can bring a tent and camp in the garden. Many guests also camp in the garden since the weather is wonderful in the summer. Dinner is included and there is free wifi.

---
Usually, your day off will be during the weekend. During your time off, you can choose from many hiking trails in the area. There are also daily tours to Ushguli (a cluster of villages at the foot of one of the highest peaks in the Caucasus mountains), waterfalls, and lakes. In Mestia, there is an ATM, markets, restaurants, and bars. There are daily marshutkas (mini buses) to Mestia from Zugdidi, Kutaisi, Batumi, and Tbilisi. If coming from Tbilisi, we recommend taking the night train to Zugdidi and taking a marshutka from there.

Bring hiking and/or camping gear with you because Georgia does not yet have good specialty outdoor equipment stores and shops.
