Caretaker with Tiny House Wanted for Inn Town Campground

A brand new campground will soon be open in the foothills of the Western Sierra. The Inn Town Campground in Nevada City, California will be offering forested campsites, RV spots with full hookups and glamping tents just steps away from the historical Gold Rush town. The owners are also interested in hiring a tiny house owner as a full time campground host.


“I love the idea of someone bringing their Tiny House to the campground to be a part of the team,” said Erin Thiem, co-owner of the Inn Town Campground and the Outside Inn.


The position would be a full time job and includes an RV spot with full hookups. The owners are still planning the details, but are looking for a permanent employee to be a campground host or the job could be both a campground host and employee with additional hours. Compensation will vary depending on duties and hours worked.



The job would require the camp host to live at the campground, meet with customers and campers and be flexible with campground chores. No prior experience is required and any technical skills can be learned on the job.

Any applicants should be available by mid-May 2016.

The Inn Town Campground is a unique campground that blends both small town living and access to rural activities in the foothills and in and around the South Yuba River. Nevada City is known for its wineries and charming main street. The town is located about 60 miles northeast of Sacramento.


The campground’s deluxe glamping tents feature electricity, beds with linens, front porches and custom headboards. The campground will also include restrooms and showers near The Commons. This 3,000 square foot building will include a camp store, community kitchen, eating area, living room, RV, fireplace, reading nook, covered porch and laundry room. Fire pits, barbecues, picnic tables and a pool will also be available.

My tiny house, a Jefferson by
Is looking for a spot within a month or so. I have already decided to find one in the Nevada City/Grass Valley area.
As a tireless retired shamanic psychotherapist ( my business has often been to promote community/village for maximum personal growth and health. Tiny house communities are a very strong wave of the future.
And, I am interested in your camp host position although would need to know more about your expectations.
Thanks for what you are offering. It is much needed and will be much appreciated.

PS My friend (used to be wife) Joanne Witte of Nevada City and I ran an Airbnb in Eureka California. Dubbed “Airstream Gardens” it featured a remodeled 1952 25′ Airstream set amidst our gardens and orchards. Very popular.
