I've been there twice now and would still recommend it. It's a great place for retreats and getting away from the noise and busyness of life. It's quiet and chill. The family that runs it are real people and inspiring w/what they are trying to accomplish in the community.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Flip Flop ranch is a small family run farm dedicated to the preservation of endangered, heritage livestock breeds and to self-sufficiency. Visit us for an afternoon or spend the week!As the economy gets worse and natural disasters point out our vulnerability, many people are wanting to learn how to take care of themselves. We offer fun and useful activities so that you can survive anything from a recession to the zombie apocalypse. Learn to garden, save seeds, butcher a chicken, milk a goat and ride a horse! Learn useful skills like chopping wood, building a fire, archery, canning your own food, making soap and cheese. And if that's not enough to make you want to stay...we have tons of kittens!Our goal is for you to not just have fun, but to leave the ranch having learned something (or a lot of somethings!).We've opened our doors and hearts to guests from around the world. Many have become dear friends. Maybe it's because of the novelty of a genuine, working farm. Perhaps it is the restfulness, the allure of the peace and quiet or the chance to milk a real goat! Some come to celebrate anniversaries, others family reunions. Whatever the reason for your visit, we are happy to be able to share our way of life with you. Are you looking for a quiet retreat? Flip Flop Ranch offers it. You are always welcome here! We are a real working farm, not a hotel or a bed and breakfast, raising for sale (amazing tasting) heritage turkeys, chickens, geese, cows and more using sustainable farming practices. You can even stay with us and join in our chores (or hang around in the hammock). Get away from the craziness of modern life and learn where your food comes from. Hold a chick, collect eggs, sheer a sheep. Get back to your farming heritage at the ranch and reconnect with nature. This is self-catering. ... more less
