Nucla’s Tabeguache Trading Co at 470 Main Street and Vestal House were started by Christopher and Aimee Tooker. They saw a need in their town and decided to invest in not only their future but the economic future of the town of Nucla by supplying the demand for products in our area and support tourism with a bed and breakfast. The store supports visitors, history buffs, local artisans, hunters and recreationists with supplies including hunting and fishing licenses, outdoor gear, ammunition, and has their FFL. Having this store in town helps residents and visitors by providing supplies and services that are much needed and used in the West End.
Now completely renovated, the Nucla Vestal House is a quaint bed and breakfast with just enough amenities to see to your comfort but without the unnecessary glitz of a big city hotel. Centered in the small town of Nucla, CO on the edge of thousands of acres of open lands, you can rest up after a day of hiking while enjoying a meal you cook yourself in their fully equipped kitchen.
“We enjoy the solitude of the outdoors and all the wonderful adventures our drives and hikes take us on. Having all these public lands in our backyard is the best staycation.”
Lincoln and Amy Vestal joined the Colorado Cooperative Company in 1900. Lincoln was heavily involved with the company as president, a director, general manager, and superintendent. They build their craftsman style home on their acreage on Tabeguache Park in anticipation of the irrigation ditch. They eventually sold their property to the Town Improvement Company. The Vestal property was the most scenic and logical area to build the town.
