If you love the Colorado outdoors and are willing to relocate, this might be the perfect job for you.

From the website travelandleisure.com website, there is a job opening from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. They are looking for housekeepers. Well, sort of.

Located in the nearly 600,000 acres of the San Juan National Forest are two houses are referred to as "guard houses." One is the Guard Station at Mancos while the other is the Glade Guard Station at Cortez.

Mancos consists of:

  • three bedroom log cabin
  • wood burning stove
  • water well
  • solar system
  • propane tank
  • kitchen

Cortez is:

  • smaller white cottage
  • kitchen
  • propane
  • solar system
  • wood burning stove
  • barn with new corrals

Basically, you will maintain the house and the grounds to pre-determined specifications. This includes such things as utilities, garbage and waste, home and grounds maintenance and basically be in charge of all vacation rentals of the home.

What's the pay, you may ask? Well, that gets a little tricky. From the article, it states that any leftover revenue from the rentals after paying the government is yours to keep. Not entirely sure what that means, but I did find the actual job description documents. Get ready, because it's 62 pages long.

But, who knows? Maybe this is exactly what you need. Solitude, quiet and the beauty of nature. If you are interested you must get your application in before Friday, October 27. Keep in mind that there is a two-year commitment with an option for five years after that.
