Join the premier wilderness lodge in Minnesota and live, work, and play in the Minnesota Northwoods, just steps away from the Boundary Waters and Superior National Forest. At Gunflint Lodge & Outfitters you will provide excellent service and quality to our guests and interact with people who enjoy hospitality and luxury and who love the outdoors!
Gunflint is located 43 miles up the Gunflint Trail from Grand Marais, Minnesota. (43 miles from the nearest town!) We are surrounded by over 1 million acres of wilderness in the Superior National Forest. Guests come from all over the world to relax, fish, swim, canoe, and explore in the Northwoods atmosphere.
Over the years our guests have come to expect a friendly and helpful staff. They come to have a relaxed vacation and we’re dependent upon our team to see that they have the best time possible. Often this means a little extra work, or time, to help a guest but we feel it’s worth it and you should too!
Perhaps the two most important qualities we look for in our team are a cheerful attitude and the willingness to go the extra mile.
Resort and outfitting work means long, hard, and sometimes irregular hours. It is certainly not a paid vacation. The schedules are set for 40 hours per week with two consecutive days off. Although you may be hired for a specific position, there are times when you may be called upon to fulfill other job duties. In a resort atmosphere we all pitch in wherever necessary to get the job done. With that in mind, we are looking for applicants who are extremely flexible and like a variety of work.
Salaries vary depending on the position being filled, and the previous experience a new employee has. Recreational equipment is available for use at a minimal charge. However, all of our facilities and equipment are for guests’ use first.
We offer onsite staff housing with shared 2 and 4 person efficiency apartments, all with a private kitchen and bathroom. Other housing options may include shared apartments and a central bathroom.
We do not receive any cell phone, TV or radio reception. You may bring your own TV/VCR or CD player if you would like.
We hope that you’ll join our team in the Northwoods for a summer…or two. Please fill out our Online Employment Application or print a copy (pdf) of our application, fill it out and mail or fax to:
