Facilities Manager

Cuyama Buckhorn was founded in 1952 as a roadside stop for weary travelers to enjoy a meal in good company and rest up before continuing on their journey. More than 60 years later, Cuyama Buckhorn has become a historic establishment, nestled in The Hidden Valley of Enchantment, filled with wonderful memories for locals and travelers alike. 

Cuyama Buckhorn is under new ownership and management and our property is undergoing a full renovation, that will breathe new life into The Buckhorn and the entire Cuyama Valley. We are also adding additional elements to the business. Once complete the main property will boast a 22 - room boutique inn with a coffee shop, full-service restaurant and bar, as well as plenty of indoor and outdoor meeting and event spaces and additional outdoor accommodations.  

We are looking for driven, skilled and organized Facilities Managers to oversee our properties and assist with maintenance, landscaping and overall property appearance. Our ideal candidates would possess past/current handy-man,  trade school, or skilled labor experience. These candidates should be willing and eager to help out in many areas of the business, including cleaning, repairs, landscaping, customer service, assistance with construction, organization, etc. They will work with the management team to ensure the property is always presentable and attractive to clients/customers, routine maintenance is kept up regularly, grounds are neat and tidy and that all utilities and equipment are functioning correctly.
