Are you looking for breathtaking outdoor scenery and recreation without the crowds? Corkins Lodge is like staying at your private national park. We have a collection of 10 cabins located near Chama in the mountains of Northern New Mexico.

We are looking for energetic individuals (preferably two people) to help us create the best experience for our guests.

About Corkins Lodge
Corkins Lodge offers unparalleled settings and amenities for mountain wilderness retreats. Our guests and team have exclusive private access to 2.5 miles of the Brazos River for fishing, hiking, and swimming. We have a heated outdoor pool, playground, indoor game room, outdoor study cabin, horseshoe, bocce ball, tetherball courts, and gorgeous picnic grounds. Our 5,000-acre land has the best fishing, hiking, hunting, and river swimming. With only 10 cabins, we offer unparalleled uncrowded spaciousness.

Cabin Housing Provided
Housing for these positions is provided in a private cabin on site with 2-bedrooms with queen beds, one bathroom with a shower, a wood-burning stove, and a full kitchen.

You’ll be joining a staff of 6-10, including our longtime manager, who has worked at the property for more than 50 years. Ideally, two people in these new roles would like to be roommates, could be couples, family, or friends. We envision this position as seasonal reoccurring each year.
