This is listed also as a Bed and Breakfast. It is NOT. You sleep in the home that does not resemble the pics. You will definitely share a bathroom with towels that are used over and over by everyone. I never saw a clean one.. Kitchen conditions are very unsanitary. Meat is left out due , to lack of refrigerator...

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay here. I wish you had of said something and we could have tried to make things better or given you your money back!! Of course you are right that things are dirty and dusty here. That's life on a farm, which is sometimes good and sometimes bad. I don't remember the table for...

My 11yo son and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights/3 days at Flip Flop Ranch. There weren't many reviews about the ranch (the few reviews were positive), but with the Living Social deal, decided to take to take a chance. As it turns out, we had a great time and expect to return. The hosts Sirena, Tashelle, and Thomas are...

My family (2 kids ages 9 and 11) stayed at the Flip Flop Ranch during the last weekend in June, 2012. We had a terrific time learning about and working with the variety of endangered farm animals that live on the ranch. Lisa, Tuchelle and Serena are wonderful hosts and share freely their wealth of information on endangered farm animals,...

I'm so glad you enjoyed your time here. We've really updated the rooms, done painting, planted flowers and are working more and more to fancy the place up. You should see it!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay in a rural farm house 20 minutes away from Big Bear ski resorts. 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. 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! "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. Basic rates (Including 8% Trans Occ Tax), depending on season are: $300/night mid week (Sunday-Thursday). Weekend rates (Friday-Sat)are $400/nt and Holiday rates are $450/nt with 3 night minimum. Specials or last minute discounts may be available within 10 days of a reservation booking. For actual rates on your trip date please refer to the calender. 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. ... more   less
