The Creekside is owned and operated by two best friends. We started in 1997 with only the sweat of our brow and a dream. As one of the last private employers in the area, we strive to be the best. This means paying a good wage, providing the best housing in the area, and most of all creating an environment that is positive, fun, and inspiring. We know a happy crew makes happy customers, therefore making happy owners.

Our expectations are simple: everybody works. We are only as strong as our weakest link. Crew members must be professional, have a GREAT attitude and work ethic, and be good ambassadors of the “Creekside”. A sense of place grows from the purposeful work of maintaining and growing this establishment,  cultivating friendships, and our steadfast commitment to provide an outstanding experience for our guests in a setting that is beyond compare. Come work in a place surrounded by astonishing beauty, with fantastic people, while learning new things….and maybe something new about yourself.
