History of the Flying S Farm

The Flying S Farm is a 18.5 acre remnant of the 160 homestead settled by German immigrant Otto Siegfreid. Named within a few years of the Wright brothers' historic flight, the name carried a modernity that barely found its way this far into the wilderness interface. At the dawn of the 20th century, one residence existed upstream of the Flying S. Ranger Chris Morgenroth, likewise a German immigrant was the first white man to settle in the upper Bogachiel Valley. By 1891,. Morgenroth and some settlers nearer Forks, had built a trail across what would become the Flying S, to connect the Hoh and upper Bogachiel with that frontier town. At one point there was a tavern/brothel and rental cabins at what is now a boat launch a few hundred feet removed from these 18.5 acres. Reduced to 40 acres, the property was acquired in the 40's by the Howard Goakey family who lived on this land and adjoining properties until around 1970.
In 1978, Chiggers Stokes working as a Park Ranger for Olympic National Park, acquired this remnant of the original homestead and electrified the property with his own microhydroelectric scheme. Chiggers and his ex-wife raised a daughter on this property in a cabin on the east (upstream) end of the parcel. In 2000, retired from the Park Service, Chiggers built a 3,000 square foot, four bedroom house, but his family fractured a year later. The bedrooms are listed through Air BnB and the Forks Chamber of Commerce. The Meadow Cabin was built on the foundation of the Goakey farmhouse and provides hostel type lodging for hikers, bikers, fishermen, or “lonely planet” adventurers. The cabin built and occupied by Chiggers and his ex-wife will be available for nightly, weekly or monthly rental starting in March of 2017.
Because of it's significant wildlife habitat and census, The Flying S Farm was protected with a strict conservation easement managed by the North Olympic Land Trust in perpetuity. The land became part of a de-facto elk reserve ordained by neighborhood compact and posting. Hemp Hill Creek runs through the farm and is one of the premier Coho salmon spawning creeks on the West End.
Located two miles from Olympic National Park, and now the furthest upstream residence, the Farm offers outstanding opportunities for wildlife viewing, silence, viewing alternative energy in action, and hiking. It is possible to walk from this farm all the way to Canada or Mexico on the National Scenic Trail System. There are many choices for lodging in the Forks area. Some may offer more elegant linen, a finer breakfast or less obstreperous/more dependable utilities. There is NOWHERE on the Peninsula where one can get so close to Nature and the memory of Olympic Pioneers...and still sleep in a pretty comfortable, clean bed. In the past five years, the owner struggled surviving major illness and now struggles to hold onto this farm in the face of soaring medical costs. Your visit helps the owner to remain owner of his life's dream. For your patronage, the owner thanks you.

- Premises powered by alternative energy. Turn off lights and save energy.
- Difficult finding Flying S Farm at night in near wilderness unelectrified neighborhood. (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps misplaces 2674 Dowans Creek Road by over a mile. Follow written directions.
- Better to arrive during day for wildlife viewing, local trails and roaming over grounds

A good place to stay and very near to Hoh rainforests. A bit far from the highway although the host gave detailed directions. Better to reach the place early before dawn. Also, beware of CATS! LOL!

Easily one of the best Airbnbs I've stayed at. If you can make it off the beaten path to this cabin, I highly recommend it. Chiggers offered extensive knowledge of the area and more hiking trails than I could finish in a month, let alone two days. Very accommodating and friendly. Looking forward to returning

I came to Flying S Ranch after about a week of traveling with my dog from Canada through Victoria and Port Angeles. It is a very rustic but comfortable place deep in the Olympic forest. The road to the ranch is loose gravel, with steep drop offs, and absolutely shouldn't be done at night! 4WD or AWD would be best, but I did it in a tiny front wheel drive hybrid, and it went just fine, but it was dry and sunny when I made the drive. Things might be different if the weather wasn't perfect - a 2WD vehicle might be a bad idea. The usual well water wasn't available due to electrical problems, so the tap water wasn't safe to drink, but they provided bottled water. My room and shared bathroom were spotless, with lots of clean towels available, and I thought they were very comfortable. The rest of the house isn't the cleanest, with lots of dust and cobwebs, but it's not unpleasant, and it suits the rustic location. The kitties are fantastic, and super sweet, but they didn't like dogs at all, and so I had to keep my dog on a leash and/or locked in my room at all times. I think I would enjoy this place a lot more without him. I had a tough time figuring out which trails were dog friendly and which weren't, and the lady who was there to check me in wasn't familiar with the area, so given all that, I'm not sure I would recommend bringing your pet. Otherwise, I found this to be a comfortable place in a beautiful, unique location, and I look forward to visiting again, but without my pup.

Chiggers's place was great for me and my cousin. His directions are spot on so follow them! He had two beautiful cats, which I can't remember if they are mentioned in the ad, but just fyi! Breakfast in the morning was really nice. No complaints here, except we were sad we didn't actually get to meet him!

Was only there long enough to sleep and shower but the water pressure is great and Julie was kind enough to greet me even though I arrived quite late in the night. Thank you!

Chigger's place is remote and beautiful. He was very accommodating in allowing us to come in late.

The location was great for my stay. Not too far from town and an easy drive to most sights I was there to see. Sadly Chiggers wasn't there and I was kind of bummed out after reading the reviews previous guests left about how awesome he is. But his buddy Bruce was there to help keep the place running and he was fun to chat with. And Chiggers' cats were awesome. I could hang with those two all day. So lovey. Cleanliness is my only negative. The washroom could definitely use a good scrub. That being said, I would stay again.
