Silver Lake B and B is a historic log cabin just outside of Harrisonburg, Virginia. We've been in operation for five years, and have enjoyed working with students the entire time it's been open. We're seeking to hire a student to serve as Assistant B and B Manager.

  • Due to COVID-19, staff must wear masks during breakfast and any time when less than 6ft from guests, wash hands often, physical distance as much as possible, and wear gloves occasionally.
  • We end up building strong relationships with the students we work with.

We put a lot of time in to our students and their growth and we want students to do the same with us!
