FlipJack Ranch is a rustic Farm to Table Bed and Breakfast for adults. Set in the Santa Cruz Mountains, our three guest rooms offer modern comforts and premium linens while we pamper you with our signature 'wake up tray' and bountiful farm breakfast. Situated on ten acres with giant redwood trees, we have a campfire ring, outdoor pizza oven, swimming pool and hot tub allowing our guests to completely relax.
Our area, the small hamlet of Bonny Doon is known for producing pinot noir, so tasting is just blocks away. One of the most beautiful Pacific Coast beaches is just three miles down the hill. Santa Cruz is the nearest city, just 10 miles away, with finer restaurants and loads of beach activities. Mountain biking the trails of Wilder Ranch State park is a favorite pastime of our guests.
FlipJack Ranch is a working ranch. We raise small livestock on rotational pasture and strive to be a sustainable farm. Come and meet our lambs, baby bunnies and free range turkeys!

We had a party of 7 that stayed at the Flipjack ranch this past weekend for a "bachelorette party" and this place enormously exceeded all of our expectations. I *almost* don't want other people to know about this place because it is so wonderful that I wanted it to remain a well-kept secret. The rooms were unique and comfortable, as was the land. The breakfasts were fantastic and true farm to table freshness with a gourmet, fine dining feel. If you get a chance to do the optional dinner that the hosts put on, and you appreciate amazing food, it is WELL worth it! The hosts were absolutely fantastic and made us feel right at home. They gave us a tour of the farm and allowed us to meet the animals and help pick our veggies for dinner that night. It truly is a one of a kind place and we will definitely be returning as soon as we possibly can! Thanks Flipjack!
I wish everyone had a chance to experience this place! Robin, the host, is so welcoming and accommodating of my large group. The setting is forest-y, farm-y, and just magical! You can wander the ranch and meet some goats or take an easy drive to some awesome hiking trails. There is also a pool, hot tub, and great campfire area to enjoy when you want to unwind. BONUS - Breakfast here is amazing and comes with the rooms. I also paid for the farm to table dinner and this was one of the best eating experiences I've had (and I looove to eat!). Everything tastes fresh and is clearly made with love! Thanks Robin and David for a great getaway!
We were totally blown away by Flipjack Ranch. The room was comfortable and quiet, the property is endlessly fun to explore, and the breakfast was first rate. What most impressed us about Flipjack was the attention to detail from the hosts. From the complimentary champagne in the room fridge to the fresh flowers adorning the rooms and the breakfast trays to the thoughtful suggestions on where to visit during our stay in Bonny Doon-- all of this made us feel comfortable and relaxed, which was just what we needed. Can't recommend this place highly enough-- we're already planning our next visit!
My husband and I just got back from our stay at Flip Jack Ranch and it was wonderful! Robbin was an amazing hostess. She went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one. She had a morning coffee tray waiting outside our door when we woke up, and made us amazingly delicious breakfasts. She also surprised us with cookies one night! Even the animals were friendly. We definitely want to go back. It was an wonderful way to relax and recharge -- we cannot recommend it highly enough.
Loved our time at FlipJack Ranch! Hosts went above and beyond to make us feel right at home. The ranch was beautiful. Fire pit outside our room and hot tub made stargazing superb. Ranch was surrounded by redwoods and yet only three miles from the beach. Perfect spot for us. Not to mention, best meal I had in Santa Cruz. We look forward to going back again next year.
Robin is a wonderful host and chef. Breakfast was fantastic, the pool is beautiful, and the farm and ranch are interesting to view. The property is close to the beach and hiking in the redwoods. We highly recommend it!
Flipjack Ranch totally exceeded all expectations! The room and property were beautiful, and the people are so friendly. The breakfast was exceptionally good. If they are doing a dinner when you are there, make sure to take them up on it. We definitely will be back!
Wonderful bnb!! Robin is a terrific host, amazing chef, and all around intriguing character. She provided a quick tour of the property that included an in-depth explanation for the farm raised chickens and rabbits. Our room was small but sufficient for our two night stay. Luxury touches like nice linens and high end soap add to the charm of the estate. Beautiful property, serenely quiet with a useful hot tub as the swimming pool was still too chilly. Great fire pit to commune with the other guests or just your date. We used the ranch as a home base for some excellent wine tasting and hiking in the mountains while still in striking distance of all the dining and entertainment that Santa Cruz/Capitola offers.
