Job Description

Family Lodge in Central Argyle, Nova Scotia, Canada.  Seeking a cook/house manager who will oversee meal preparation, service and general housekeeping from approximately July 1 to August 31.  This professional will manage up to 2 assistant cooks as well as up to 6 servers and housekeepers. Flexibility will be required as occupancy ranges from 10 to as many as 40 family members on a weekly basis. The Cook/House Manager will be in charge of scheduling the inside staff and tracking their hours. The position will require planning, shopping, food preparation/cooking and personnel management. Reservations are made by the family well in advance so there is good visibility as to house occupancy.  Guests typically arrive on Saturdays, so Saturday visibilty is key in turning the house over. The Lodge has been in the family for over 100 years.  Many of our staff have been long serving and have essentially become extensions of our family.  Our on-site Caretaker, for example, has been with us for over 40 years, and his wife and children have all worked as members of the Lodge staff.  The Lodge is a very special place to our family, and our staff are a critical part of the experience.  Typically, the individual in this position works 40 to 60 hours per week for a total of 8-10 weeks. This position works in tandem with the outside caretaker position. This position also works with a family point person who acts as a sounding board for menu ideas, staffing questions et cetera. The successful candidate will be creative and organized, have a sense of humor and fun, and be able to work well with people.


Training as a chef and management skills for working with staff, cooking assistans and cleaning staff.


Accommodations could be available, meals and potential for on-going summer employment.
