Who We Are

For over a hundred and fifty years the lakefront property which is now The Tyler Place has been a summer tradition for families. Four generations of our family have come here to camp, fish, build tree forts, pick blackberries, swim, canoe, sunbathe and enjoy nature and each other’s company. Over the years we’ve grown a bit more sophisticated, but we’ve tried and succeeded (we think!) to maintain for our guests this essence of summer – and our hardworking, enthusiastic staff is a HUGE factor that contributes to that special spirit of the place and keeps guests returning year after year.

Dates & Important Details

Our 2022 season runs from May 27 to September 10, but staff should arrive on May 24 to attend orientation. Most of our staff are college or graduate students and applicants who require housing must have completed at least two years of college to be considered for employment. Live-in staff can expect a minimum of $12.55 per hour and possibly more based on the position and your experience. There are no salary deductions for room and board. We have a “No Tipping Policy” so as not to spoil the collegial guest/staff atmosphere – a trademark for four generations.
