Book your stay today!
Stay in a rural farm house 30 minutes away from Big Bear ski resorts, 45 minutes to Joshua Tree National Park and an hour to Calico Ghost Town. Located on a real farm, you can feed animals, milk the goat and enjoy the quiet solitude of the countryside. A safe place for your kids to run around and be kids!
Farmstays offer a peek into a rural lifestyle that disappeared for many when the family farm was sold, often generations ago. There is a pace to life on the farm that starts with the early morning wake-up call by the rooster and the sound of the farm equipment and that ends with quiet and the total darkness at night, except for a fantastic view of the stars.
The Flip Flop Ranch farmstay has sheep and lambs, pigs and piglets, cows, chickens, bunches of barn cats (with plenty of kittens), geese, ducks, turkeys, goats, horses and more.
Host a family get together, a business retreat or a hangout with friends! We even have weddings here in our big red barn!
“Just being on a farm is good for the soul.”–Scottie Jones farmstay US
Your visit starts off with a free tour through the farm to learn where things are and to gain some basic knowledge about what we do and the types of livestock we raise.
We also offer other activities if you want to fill your day or you can just rest and relax and have a nap!
Main home Beds are as follows: 2 full beds in room 1 downstairs, 3 queen beds in room 2 downstairs, 1 king in bedroom upstairs, 1 full in bedroom upstairs, 2 twin beds in bedroom upstairs.
All beds will be freshly made with clean white linens and there will also be fresh bath towels.
There is no smoking permitted inside the home and unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate any pets. Guests found with pets at the property will result in an immediate forfeiture of the remaining reservation days and loss of the security deposit.
Signing of a Guest Occupancy Agreement, Participation Agreement for each visitor and copy of drivers license will be required upon confirmation of reservation and may be sent via e-mail, text or US mail and is also available at our Flip Flop Ranch Farmstay website.
The entire farm house is yours to use, including the kitchen with full amenities. Feel free to wonder the farm and go for hikes in the vast open areas around us.
The most important activity to consider is the “art of relaxation.” When you find yourself surrounded by natural beauty, slow down, breathe deeply and appreciate it. Watch a sunset, go bird-watching, take a walk through the desert, listen to the livestock, read a good book or just sit quietly and let your mind wander. Blue skies, clean, fresh air, starry nights and the sounds of silence are all included in your airbnb stay.
I give my guests space, but I’m available if needed.
All guests get a free tour of the farm. Some guests come just to relax and others come for the farm. For the last group, we’ve added extra activities to give you a better farm experience! This helps keep the cost down for those of you who just want to keep things simple.
Extra activities available:
Feeding and milking with the farmer (once per day as available): Included
Mozzarella cheesemaking class $150
Sheep shearing/wool spinning class: $300
Guest may be greeted by the farmer but if we are out running errands we will arrange for you to have access to the house.
*goat milking is seasonal and dependent on the needs of the goats
The home is located on a working farm surrounded by miles of beautiful desert with hardly any neighbors. Plenty of space to go hiking. Located five miles down the mountain from Big Bear and the ski areas. We’re also only 22 miles (about a half hour) from Means Lake in Johnson Valley where King of the Hammers takes place. Johnson Valley also offers fantastic off highway vehicle areas for dirt biking or rock crawling all year long. Joshua Tree National Park is only 45 minutes away as well!
