Mission: Welcome to Marluc Bella Vita Ranch. the Ranch serves our guests by providing a resort environment and a place for learning, tranquility, relaxation, sport, and entertainment while participating in the care of our facilities, wildlife, vegetation, ponds and other natural resources.

The property features a sports complex with basketball, soccer, volleyball and baseball. With four miles of hiking and biking trails (motorized not permitted) around the forested lake and the wooded upper meadow, there is lots to see if you enjoy nature and wildlife.

Lake Godstone is 40 feet deep and stocked with bass, bluegill, and channel catfish. Fishing is very good and there are lots of openings through the woods with nice fishing spots. We also built a new crappie pond below the lake in 2020. Surrounding the lake are five partially covered docks used for fishing, swimming, and boating.

The cabin (we call it “Inspiration”) has a king bed, a loft with one twin, and another loft with one twin bed. Has a BBQ grill, smoker and fire pit. The sunrise view over the valley below is spectacular. There are ten miles of hike and bike trails through the upper meadows and around the forested lake on the 188-acre ranch and the fishing is great. With wifi, parking, lots of trees and wildlife the connection with nature while relaxing will bring you back every year.
