Private couple with homes in The Berkshires (Lenox, MA) and Rhinebeck, NY are in search of a Live In Housekeeper to work Monday through Friday
A typical week may look something like this:
Retrieve papers from driveway, "open up the house" (open blinds, lights etc for the day ahead). Whole house check (mechanical room for leaks etc) Check on ladies for p/u breakfast needs, houser reset from the weekend: reset guest rooms if applicable, Kitchen tidy up, Discard food & beverages, dust light fixtures/ceiling Fan, water flowers. May also need to make appointments – meet with vendors if needed
Prep for trash – empty garbage throughout the house and refrigerators/ laundry
Fluff & rotate sofa cushions, dust surfaces, dust staircase, banisters and wipe downstairs – vacuum and mop floors (in addtion to irobots)
Wknd prep for guests if applicable or for driving to the other house. Bathrooms, Laundry
**Everyday also packages arrive from meal prep companies, amazon, online shopping**
Both homes are as chic as they are comfortable. They do not believe in an "eggshell environment". They train their staff to the way they like things done and provide daily checklists etc. Basically, wherever the eye falls in each room, it should be pleasing to all.
Their dogs are their children and they are loving and affectionate. Housekeeper must be a dog lover as well!
The principals believe in hard work but also rewards. All the vendors that service their homes love that they always think of them (set up beverage stations, give out lotto scratchers). They believe thoughtful/genuine gestures go a long way.
A sense of decorum and boundaries is a must; but they do want the person to be part of their family. Trust and utmost discretion is paramount; absolutely no posting pics on social media etc
They are hoping to find a staff member who sees this position as "a calling"/their craft and loves the art of hospitality and everything that goes into that.
