Secluded in a quiet forest, the Flying Dolphin Ranch is situated on 5 acres of heavily forested Ponderosa Pine. A winding stream runs through the property and the wrap around deck offers a magnificent view of the San Francisco Peaks. The open floor plan suite has a private entrance and is the entire lower level of an occupied home. Ideally situated close to hiking trails and several parks yet 20 minutes from historic downtown Flagstaff.
Diversity is always welcome at the Flying Dolphin Ranch.
Looking to get away from it all? Then look no further!! The Flying Dolphin Ranch is a 2 bedroom suite with living area in the lower level of a geodesic dome, completely separate from the host living quarters and accessible from a private entrance. Located on an actual ranch with horses, this space is close enough to town (20 minutes) to access local restaurants and shopping while remote and allowing easy access to the forest just beyond the door.
The open floor plan suite is furnished with a living area to relax after a day of hiking or sightseeing. A full bath and two bedrooms make the space ideal for a larger family or a couple of families. There is a mini-fridge, a Keurig Coffee Maker and beverage options provided, as well as a microwave. Utensils and plates/ cups are also included. Please note there is no kitchen.
Parking is available within 20 feet of the door and there are no stairs to access the living space. However, there are stairs to access the deck.

In 1999 I had the privilege of travelling to Costa Rica to swim in the open ocean with dolphins. See dolphins (and horses) are my thing. I stayed at what now is known as a bed and breakfast but back then it was a guy who doubled as our boat captain who had remodeled his home into a rustic paradise. That's where I got my first taste of meeting travelers from all over the world in a more intimate setting. The experience stuck and I vowed to someday recreate it for others!! Hence the genesis of the Flying Dolphin Ranch . As for the name? It encompasses two of my favorite things. And, if you've ever seen a dolphin fly, you are very lucky indeed!
