Our mission: "We hope that all who stay or live at Lost River Hostel will be inspired to improve themselves and improve the world around them."

We are now into year four of the creation of Lost River Hostel and fully opened in 2018. This eco hostel is intended to provide a space for guests to come through for a night or two to relax, rejuvenate, and return to a state of bliss and inspiration. The resident staff will be asked to help upkeep the garden, maintaining trails/lawn/grounds around the property, care for our chickens, help construct new structures, continue our composting, prepare meals for the staff and guests, and all around creating a loving and beautiful environment for all who stay. Right now we are looking for people with different skills and backgrounds. While your skill set is an attribute, kindness and a collaborative, open spirit are valued above all. Volunteer staff will have housing, all meals provided, and possible travel expenses to the hostel. Your availability for the duration of your stay at the hostel should be between 30 and 90 days; manager between 90 and 180 days.

Our quaint farmhouse on the hill sits on 16 acres of wooded wonderland only minutes away from the Hoosier National Forest. In our leisure time, we enjoy taking hikes, kayaking down the river, painting, yoga in our sunroom, reading, playing music in our living room that is stocked with instruments of all different kinds, sharing stories, sitting by the fire, taking a dip in our Clay Lagoon, and meditating underneath the forest's canopy.

More information is available on the staff page of our website: ( There, you will also find our application. Chosen candidates will be contacted to arrange a video chat interview. We look forward to sharing our little community with you!
