Fresh Coast Hosts

Join Us: Host Cabin Guests on Lake Superior

We know that everyone has choices when they’re picking where to stay. Each Fresh Coast Cabins guest has selected the Keweenaw, Lake Superior, and our rustic cabins. This is why we strive to create the best cabin getaway experience imaginable, and we’re looking for Hosts to be a part of the magic.

Disconnect from the busy moments and enjoy every sunrise and sunset on Lake Superior while playing a critical role in creating memorable stays for guests and supporting operational needs. Fresh Coast Hosts support 2-4 week hosting rotations as needed by the FCC team.

The ideal person for this role is…

  • friendly and outgoing,
  • proactive and self-directed,
  • committed to maintaining the property,
  • OVER THE MOON to support the best guest experience possible.

Role Details

    This is a part-time, seasonal role as an independent contractor. The duties can be fulfilled by one or two people.

About Us

Fresh Coast Cabins is an adventure brand based in the Keweenaw Peninsula with 10 cabins and a pretty sweet suite peering on the edge of Lake Superior. We love to hike, bike, and be outside as much as possible but tent camping is for the birds. We bring the cozy cabin vibes and value lots of time to explore the nooks and crannies of the vast Lake Superior shore or tuck into that book you’ve been meaning to read. It is our mission to provide an incredible getaway experience with clean, cozy, and curated cabin spaces.
