Stay at Flip Flop Ranch!
Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature from a rustic farmhouse nestled in the desert of Southern California.
Drive two hours east of Los Angeles, past the Big Bear mountains, until the suburbs thin out to wide-open land on the fringes of the Mojave Desert. Welcome to Lucerne Valley, where homesteads, rock formations, and dry lakes make for strikingly beautiful scenery.
Join us in feeding the animals and goat milking or just enjoy as your kids play and get a taste of the farmlife.
A Farmstay, or an Airbnb on a farm, offers 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.
Horses and peacocks and sheep, oh my! Barnyard buddies and city slickers alike will want to flock to the Flip Flop Ranch, a working 40-acre farm filled with furry friends in the heart of Lucerne Valley. Stay in our bright and airy farmhouse and experience country life at its best—more than your average farm, the Flip Flop is home to several endangered breeds of livestock that we help to conserve. Every stay at the ranch helps to keep these breeds alive for future generations!
Get 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, the sound of the tractor throughout the day and ending with a quiet sunset and the total darkness of a desert 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!
You can do as much or as little as you want while you’re here. Take a tour through the farm to learn about what we do and the types of livestock we raise. Join in with feeding and milking, take a cheesemaking class, learn to make jewelry…or just relax and take a nap!
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.
