Looking for a safe haven from Covid? Our rooms are widely separated and we only host 8 guests on the ranch at a time. We have high hygiene standards at our very small 4 room BnB. In response to COVID-19, we are following the CDC best practices of increased cleaning and disinfecting of all surfaces in guest rooms and public spaces.

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, 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. 

We are a working farm, so feel free to wander our ten acres of redwoods and pastures. Talk turkey with our heritage turkeys, cuddle a bunny, or gather fresh eggs in the barn from our obliging chickens.

The Cowgirl room can be accessed by a path from the driveway, or by steps from the fire circle. Two night minimum please. Sorry, we cannot accommodate pets at this time. No Children or infants please. FlipJack Ranch is a non-smoking property.  Local Taxes are included in the price of the room.

Wow, what a wonderful stay! We felt welcomed and well taken care of at all times while also feeling we had a quiet, private retreat to ourselves. The Cowgirl room was cozy with a wonderfully comfortable bed. The property is beautiful and we had so much fun exploring. We got to stargaze from the hot tub, jump on the trampoline, hang with the animal residents (Mr. P the peacock was so friendly!), hike local trails, eat amazing breakfasts lovingly and expertly created by Robin, talk music and Bonny Doon with David, and enjoy our wake up tray in our warm room. We look forward to planning our next trip to this amazing Ranch! Thank you FlipJack Ranch!

Great weekend getaway, cut short

FlipJack Ranch is a beautiful, peaceful little ranch, and it's obvious that Robin (who was away while I was there) and Teri (who was my host) take great care of the animals and land surrounding the ranch. All of the rooms/cabins are a safe enough distance away from one another to maintain plenty of social distance during Covid. The chickens, cats, and even a peacock are a delight to interact with. The complimentary breakfast is just as delicious as other reviewers said.

Unfortunately the trip was cut short by the lightning storms and wildfires that happened the weekend of August 15-16. The ranch lost power in the middle of the night, and by early morning we (myself, and guests in other cabins) were urged to leave immediately due to nearby fires. Also, just an FYI there is little to no cell service in the area, and once power went out we had no WiFi at the ranch either. So there was no way to communicate or get updates during the storm and subsequent fires. Fortunately the ranchkeepers provide flashlights in the rooms. It was a good reminder that nature is boss, and preparation is key. That said, I hope to go back sometime.

If you are looking for a place to unwind and relax, this is the place for you. Robin greeted us upon arrival and showed us to our room. My daughter and I stayed in the Cowgirl room, super cute and very private. Coffee on the patio was incredible, you look right into the redwoods and can hear the sounds of the farm. Morning walks through her property were so incredibly serene and beautiful. FlipJack Ranch is also so close to Bonny Doon beach, such a spectacular view from above. We hiked down and spent some time on one of the most beautiful beaches. Robin's breakfasts were also wonderful, the blueberry pancakes were pretty amazing. I would come back again for sure. Robin is a great host and her staff was also very polite and friendly.

Flip Jack Ranch is a serene retreat in the heart of the Santa Cruz mountains. Choose the Cowgirl room if you’re looking for a private getaway spot without having to forfeit any of the comforts of a B&B; it’s separated from the rest of the house in the back, and has its own private bathroom, entrance, and patio. The whole place is generally peaceful, with only a handful of guests at a time, but this room will guarantee that you’ll go unbothered. There was so much wildlife - deer, turkeys, and the resident peacock! - that came right up to the door and windows because it’s so much quieter back there.

Perfect for reading, writing, hibernating, and taking an occasional trip to the property’s hot tub, or even venturing into Santa Cruz or to all of the surrounding trails and beaches. You’re deep in the redwoods and yet still so close to everything. And Robin and her team go out of their way to make you feel cared for and welcome on their property. Plus her cooking is so good, and much of it is locally sourced!

We had a wonderful stay at Flip Jack. The property was peaceful and filled with fun animals. The rooster, Napoleon, is a feisty and handsome character!! Our room was very cozy and the breakfasts just fabulous. Wonderful staff and host.

Staying on the Ranch is absolutely magical. This is the second year we have been back and love it more every year. Robin makes the best breakfast and scones that you will dream of on your second night there waiting for them the next morning 🙈. It is the best place to come unwind and feel apart of nature. She has chickens, a peacock and turkeys roaming around the property you can make friends with. The room is so cozy and very private and really is just a great place to unwind.

This place was ridiculously wonderful. I almost don't want to review it because I don't want it to become too hard to book- because we're definitely coming back! The room is beautiful and super clean. The property is huge, and we didn't even have time to explore it all. The wake up tray (brought to your room at the time you request) is the perfect touch every morning, right before the most amazingly delicious breakfast you will ever have. It's crazy that there's a place like this so close to the Bay Area. A perfect place to relax and recharge!
