Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch

Stanley, Idaho


The Ranch is a unique, beautiful 900 acre property in the heart of the Sawtooth and White Cloud Mountains, with Lodge and Cabins on the National Register of Historic Places, surrounded by more wilderness than anywhere in the lower 48 States, with a guest capacity of 42-50 people. A personalized, professional service is provided to our interesting guests by a well trained, fun staff of 25.


The historic Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch is nestled amidst snowcapped Sawtooth and White Cloud Mountain peaks and the meandering Salmon River in one of the country’s most spectacularly scenic, adventure rich and relatively undiscovered regions of the country.  The Ranch is distinguished by its quality, simplicity, hospitality, and relaxed ambiance.  Artful renovation of accommodations, enhancement of the activity program and thoughtful design of the food program have preserved for our guests the authenticity of a western ranch experience consistent with their high expectations and the  magnificent natural surroundings.

IRMR seeks an executive chef with knowledge of advanced culinary product and technique and the personal attributes and abilities necessary to hire, train, supervise, lead by example and work alongside a seasonal kitchen crew to design and execute a quality food program as an integrated part of the total Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch guest experience.  Using locally sourced, organic, sustainable product whenever possible and the highest quality products that allow the ingredients to speak for themselves, the Executive Chef is responsible for designing menu and providing our 50 guests breakfast, packed to-go lunch, snacks and dinner meals that include coursed dinners in the lodge dining room and outdoor events  --  bbq, dutch oven and wood fired brick oven meals.   Additionally, the Executive Chef provides meals for a limited number of guests who visit the Ranch for dinner by reservation and for several private events during the guest season, and prepares healthy food for our 30 crew members who both live and work on the Ranch.  The Executive Chef works as one of the Ranch management team, reporting to the lodge manager, to maintain the compatibility and integration of the food program with the total Ranch guest experience.

The seasonal nature of our Ranch business, coupled with our high quality program standards, provides a challenge to the Executive Chef outside the usual challenges of this position in a restaurant: Menu design must allow for production of excellent food for our guests by the Chef with a seasonal crew.  Hiring, training, providing ongoing supervision and season-long instruction and leadership to the seasonal crew, while working and cooking alongside them, are necessary to accomplish the goal. 

Description of our current food program can be found on our website . Year round salary DOE, incentive bonus, benefits, housing.  Submit cover letter and resume, and request for complete job description and duties, to or via post to Sandra Beckwith, Lodge Manager, Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch HC64 #9934 Stanley, Idaho  83278.
