Hello, just wondering if anyone would be able to steer us in the right direction. My husband is a retired law enforcement officer (very fit and in his 50's) who has done private security for families. Since we are interested in the Bigfork area we thought one way to do that would to maybe find a situation where we are home sitting and that requires security (possibly caring for animals also) and maybe even this winter to give us a chance to try out the winter in Bigfork (or surrounding area). We know that there are snowbirds in that area that may want their homes protected. Just an idea we are bouncing around. Thanks.

There are many nice homes around the lake which are seasonal use only. I imagine the multi-million dollar stone mansion on Shelter Island has a staff. You might want to inquire. I believe it is listed for sale.

It seems to me the more expensive properties are on Finley Point. I would check with property management companies about caretaker positions.

In Montana Craigslist is used, as well as, local bulletin boards at stores/restaurants & local Facebook pages.

I don't know if your husband is interested in work outside of just caretaking, but all of the building security at my job is either retired LEO, or military. They are armed security guards for federal buildings. It is as laid back as it can get. They walk around the building once an hour, and search people coming into the building. They are armed and have body armor. It pays around 40k a year. Just about every federal building and state building in MT has security.


Here is one in Helena, MT.

Here is one in Great Falls.

Thanks but I don't think he would be interested in working with, or for, the Feds again. :-)
