Description from owner

Description

Stay in a rural farm house 20 minutes away from Big Bear ski resorts and 45 to Joshua Tree National Park. 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!

The Space

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.

Depending on the season, the Flip Flop Ranch farmstay has anywhere from 20 to 40 sheep, a handful of pigs, some cows, a hundred 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!

“Just being on a farm is good for the soul."–Scottie Jones farmstay US

Your visit starts off with a 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. You are welcome to join us for feeding and milking in the morning and afternoon!

Main home Beds are as follows: 2 full beds in room 1 downstairs, 2 full beds in room 2 downstairs, 2 queens in master bedroom upstairs, 1 king in bedroom upstairs, 1 full in bedroom upstairs.

All beds will be freshly made with clean white linens and there will also be fresh bath towels and courtesy soaps provided for all our guests.

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 $500 security deposit.

Signing of a Guest Occupancy Agreement and copy of drivers license will be required upon confirmation of reservation and may be sent via e-mail, text or US mail.

***We try our best to keep the calender updated but in the event of a conflict we will notify you within 24 hours of booking.

Guest Access

The entire farm house is yours to use, including the kitchen with full amenities. Feel free to wonder the farm and go into the petting zoo pen whenever you like to hug the fluffy sheep.

Interaction with Guests

All guests get a free tour of the farm and can join the farmers for feeding and milking in the morning and evening when possible. This depends on our schedule and whether or not you are around when we feed. Feel free to ask us about feeding times as it changes.

Guest may be greeted by the farmer but if we are out running errands a combo lockbox is on-site for 24 hour key access upon arrival.

Other Things to Note

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.
