Vestal House @ Tabeguache Park - Bed and Breakfast and RV Park
|Visit our Website|
The Tooker Family renovated the VESTAL HOUSE @ TABEGUACHE PARK. It is one of the oldest homes (Est 1913) in Nucla; between 4th and 5th on Main Street. The Grand Opening was in 2020 when guests started enjoying their family friendly Bed and Breakfast rooms and RV Park.
"Where our love of community, heritage and the outdoors reflect in our rooms and our hospitality." The Vestal House was designated a Montrose County Historic Landmark in 2015.
The historic craftsman home has space for small weddings and reunions. It features a fully equipped guest kitchen, living room and outside patio with BBQ grill.
The Historic Vestal House's newly built B&B Inn has 4 rooms all with private baths, queen beds and WiFi. Each room celebrates "West End" of Montrose County: Uravan, Visionaries, Lodge, and Tabeguache.
The Tabeguache branch of the Ute Indian Tribe named this area "The place where the snow melts first." Nucla is an early spring destination if you're looking to leave winter behind. In the 1890s the Colorado Cooperative Company came to Nucla and built an 18 mile water canal from the San Miguel River beginning a rich history in Nucla's Agriculture roots. In the 1930s the US Vanadium Corporation found the area rich with vanadium ore.
THE LOFT AT TABEGUACHE PARK is a second floor apartment with a bedroom (2 full size beds), bathroom, and original features a short walk from Vestal House where you can enjoy breakfast and the common area.
