workplace philosophy

While we maintain a drug-free workplace, we believe that our business is to host travelers for the most memorable locations near the most beautiful sights – it is not to tell you how to think or how to live. We do not discriminate by race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation though our core philosophy is firm. Vaccinated or unvaccinated – that if your business and your choice (we will never ask). It is not our job to tell folks how to live and how to think though we reserve the right to dismiss difficult customers and staff members alike. This is not a place for preaching, nor a place for ego. This is a place to plug into the team and watch new ideas and talents come alive! It is a place to develop new skills and see a career with a superb work family thrive. We encourage self-driven individuals, innovation, and askew micro-management.

As an added bonus, most of our cabins are dog friendly, so your four legged friends can come along too.
