Description of Business: Ranch Resort

Description of Area: The Ranch is located in the Lake George Resort area. Lake Placid Olympic Training site is nearby in Adirondack State Park (2 million acres) on a private lake. There are many historical sites. We are 4 hours from New York City. This is a very rural area. You need to be aware that it is somewhat isolated so if you want the “big city” life or something of that nature, this job would not suit you well.

Travel Time to the job site, example: Please fly into Albany New York airport than take the bus to Warrensburg where we will pick you up. You must contact your employer as soon as possible with your travel plans; failure to do so may make you have to wait to be picked up. Plan your arrival on a Monday-Friday schedule. There will be no pick ups after 10pm local standard time any day of the week. If you arrive during the no pick up time, you are responsible for hotel accommodations.
