Assistant Innkeeper(s) needed
China Clipper Inn- Bed and Breakfast in Ouray, Colorado

We are in search of an outstanding hospitality couple or persons to fill the position of Assistant Innkeeper(s) at the China Clipper Inn- Bed and Breakfast in Ouray, Colorado. Starting date is end of May 2018 until the beginning of October 2018. 

The China Clipper Inn – Bed and Breakfast is located in the heart of Ouray, Colorado. We provide elegant and luxurious lodging accommodations with 13 guest rooms in total. Built from scratch in the 1990's and opened in 1995, this Ouray Inn, was designed to emulate its historic neighbors and retain the architectural vintage and character of the town. With fine mountain views from most rooms, the China Clipper Inn offers all the intimate amenities of an Inn and the conveniences and privacy of a fine hotel.


We are a small Inn- B&B and this means that we are looking for hospitality staff that enjoys a variety of jobs and activities as they arise. Walking up and down stairs daily and lifting laundry/ trash/ suitcases are no problem for you at all. Changing a light bulb and small maintenance do not scare you. And above all you love our guests and like to fix things and situations with a smile!

Strong problem solving skills are a must, as the day to day operations of a small Inn require constant assessment of issues, and swift resolution of guests concerns. Hotel / Inn experience, cooking experience, handy(wo)man skills for small maintenance for this position are a plus. Great service orientation, excellent communication skills and solid computer skills are required. Candidates must be professional in dress and demeanor, but warm and welcoming in style.

Compensation package is situation-dependent as it reflects the occupancy of the Inn and the qualifications of the persons. On site living can be provided as part of the compensation package in a studio apartment on the ground floor of the Inn (non-smoking, no pets and no kids). 


After a training period, the position we will require that you will work independently and self-directed. Duties are cooking and serving breakfast (busing and clean up included), laundry washing and folding laundry, resolving small maintenance issues and all Front Desk responsibilities. You will also be expected to help housekeeping with duties if needed. (strip beds/ cleaning general inside and outside areas). You will report to the General Manager/ Innkeeper of the China Clipper Inn- Bed and Breakfast.

Please send us a resume and why you are interested in the position:
