About Christina Schell

My work career has been spent at many great properties The Broadmoor, Buena Vista Palace, PGA National Resort and Spa, The Breakers and I am still currently working in the hospitality industry. I have decided over the past few years that I want to create a 'special home' of my own and treat it as the best 5 Star/5 Diamond experience for my guests.

Christina Schell purchased this house in 2013

Why Christina Schell chose Colorado Springs

Colorado's unsurpassed natural beauty surrounds the house and provides endless possibilities for excitement and exploration. Old Colorado City is described as the gateway to the American West, the neighborhood is framed by the picturesque mountains, lush meadows and scenic canyons that have inspired visitors for centuries. Colorado Springs and the cute historic towns offer an inspiring array of outdoor activities that take advantage of the natural beauty of Colorado and caters to guests' and their individual interests.

What makes this house unique

With over 300 days of sunshine each year and virtually no humidity, Colorado Springs provides the perfect backdrop to explore the timeless beauty of the West. Historic Old Colorado City is less than 3 blocks away from the house and less than a 4 minute walk, during the summer every Saturday from 7AM-Noon we have a Farmer's Market with local produce, meats, cheese, bread and flowers. Throughout the summer every Thursday at Bancroft Park we have concerts and all summer long we have festivals and a Friday Night Art Walk.

Charming, home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house so much we were sad to leave. Kitchen has everything travelers need and so much more. Bathroom is beautiful and stocked with extra toiletries. Adorable backyard with patio furniture. Updated décor throughout the house. Beds are comfortable. Looks clean and smells clean. Conveniently close to many touristic attractions and the historic West Side. Owner responds quickly to questions. Would highly recommend.

A perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this Old Colorado City home! It fit our family perfectly, had a beautiful kitchen, lots of natural light, and a fenced in back yard. Christina thought of every detail and was very attentive/accommodating during our stay. Plus our kids thought the jetted tub was the bees knees. :) We would have taken advantage of the location more had the weather not been surprisingly snowy and cold (for the last weekend of April!), but found ourselves at the park/playground nearby as well as the grocery store and other local hot spots! Depending on your dietary preferences, we highly recommend Front Range BBQ for a delicious meal, as well as Cheyenne Mountain Zoo for an amazing animal experience, and Garden of the Gods for beautiful views. Thank you, Christina! We will definitely be back!

Lovely Home So Close To Everything!

Was the perfect place for us to stay while visiting Colorado Springs area. The house was clean, updated, and had a wonderful fenced in back yard for our dog to enjoy worry free! It was walking distance to the cute downtown area of Old Colorado City. Would definitely stay here again!

Adorable home with the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Christina has thought of everything...from frozen mugs in the freezer to umbrellas in case it rains. It was very clean and had everything you could possibly need. The couches and beds were comfortable after a full day of exploring. The location couldn't be better. 15-20 minute drive to everything we wanted to do. We found the best breakfast restaurant 2 blocks away (Mountain Shadow Hills), as well as, a great Italian restaurant (Paravicinis ). Would definitely stay again if back in the area
