Harper Associates has been exclusively retained for the search by The Goldmoor Inn. The quaint Goldmoor Inn was once a privately owned estate perched on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. Three decades ago, it was transformed into an elegant country inn that offers gourmet dining, luxurious accommodations for overnight guests, and beautifully maintained gardens and grounds. The Goldmoor Inn is a charming bed and breakfast that provides the perfect location for a romantic getaway or destination wedding.

With a reputation for outstanding gourmet food and impeccable service, the Inn has a small, fine dining restaurant (28 seats) and a catering facility which can accommodate up to 150 for intimate weddings and other events. The property offers Chef’s Table and Chef’s cooking class. The Chef is provided with a private garden on the estate grounds. This is an exceptional opportunity for a hands-on working Chef who would welcome a unique opportunity to run a creative, scratch kitchen in an exceptionally unique setting. The Chef must enjoy media exposure and guest interaction. This could be an ideal situation for a talented Sous Chef ready for their next challenge. 

Culinary degree required. $55-60,000 plus incentives.
