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.

IN TOWN: Walk to coffee house, pharmacy, gift shop, liquor store, and Ruth's Toffee. Steps from The Rimrocker Trailhead.

Take a "Sunday drive" and explore our slice of Colorado, adventures off the beaten path, plan to stop and look for treasures from rocks, agate and petrified wood to antlers, skulls and bones. You may not find a bronze box worth millions but the memories you make are priceless. Going out in the mountains is a time to relax and recharge.
