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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Christina,



Thank you SO much for opening your lovely home to us. We had a wonderful Colorado vacation and enjoyed the wonderful central location to so many sites. Coming home to such a welcoming & cozy place made everything even better.

Convenient, Clean and Charming

  • 5 of 5

This property is clean, nicely decorated and in the perfect location. Conveniently located off of major streets and most Colorado Springs attractions are within 10-15 minutes. There are several restaurants within walking distance or just a short-drive away. The neighborhood is quiet and convenient! I would stay there again next time I am in the area.

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay. The house is cute and clean! The kitchen was well stocked for the week. We loved that we could walk a couple of blocks to eat and shop. The location was super easy to get to any location we were headed. So much better than staying in a hotel! We would definitely recommend this property!!

The house was wonderful, a perfect fit for our Colorado Springs visit. The house was immaculate and the yard was a great gathering spot in the evenings. Excellent location for walking to local restaurants and shops. The host provided excellent recommendations. We will definitely return!

Charming Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoying our stay in this very charming home. We chose the location based on attending a wedding near by at the Broadmoor, but found the neighborhood to be great as well. Loved the house and would definitely stay again if we end up in Colorado Springs again.
