About Tona Goering
I am the 6th generation of pioneers who settled in the Unaweep Canyon and Gateway areas of Mesa County. My husband was born and raised in a Mennonite farming community in Kansas. We met and married young and began our great adventure. We've lived and moved every few years, following construction, forest service, and reclamation work-while raising four children. We settled here 10 years ago and started a family-owned and operated excavation business, employing each of our four grown children at one time or another. We have loved traveling overseas and locally, helping with humanitarian missions when business allowed. We built this house as a "spec" home when I got the urge to work on my design and decorating skills. My husband got the dubious pleasure of performing the grunt work involved in creating this sanctuary. When the economy took a downturn we couldn't sell, so we got to enjoy utilizing this property as a hub for hospitality, celebrating family events and reunions. When we discovered the advantages and fun of private vacation rentals the past few years with our families, it seemed to be the natural progression to add our little "resort" to the list of great places to stay. We love it!
Tona Goering purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Tona Goering chose Fruita
We have lived in extremely cold high mountain areas and in the heat of the desert. Fruita's mostly temperate climate enticed us as a good place to retire, eventually. And most important, our grand children are here. We have only spent 18 months of our 41 year marriage living in town, so this 3 acre property at the edge of town and with the extensive "rural" views it offered was the perfect compromise.
What makes this Villa unique
The property feels completely secluded, but offers the benefit of living near wonderful neighbors. The ever-changing views of the Monument never cease to amaze me. The wide open skies to the southeast are limitless and give the feeling of complete privacy in some of the most scenic country in the world. Deer, foxes, coyotes, and even a mountain lion have made their presence known, but never threatened our safety. Every sunrise, every sunset, every cloudy or clear sky is remarkable. The house is wonderful, but the outdoor area constantly draws me out to see and experience its' diversity.
