This opportunity is for one person (no pets) for the months of April 1st through November 1st. You must be willing to commit to at least one month. 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.

We have the expectation that you will work 25 hours per week (4 consecutive work days - 3 days off in a row). The projects you will work on will vary tremendously and might involve: maintaining the garden, prepping and planting new gardens, cleaning yurts, cooking in the food cart, painting, general cleaning (bathrooms, lodge etc.) or whatever else needs to be done.
In exchange for the 25 hours of work we will provide you with a cabin. 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.

Smoking is only allowed in outside designated areas only. If drugs and alcohol are a problem for you to manage this will not be the place for you. We are a drama free zone! Smoking pot, drinking alcohol or taking drugs during working hours is not allowed under any circumstance due to safety considerations.

All stays begin with a one-week trial to confirm both parties are satisfied with the arrangements.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Jeff and Julie
