About Christina Schell

My work career has been spent at many great properties throughout the country, the 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 2010

Why Christina Schell chose Manitou 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.

CO Springs trip with grandkids

  • 5 of 5

Our two granddaughters, ages 9 and 14, fell in love with your charming house at the curb. We took them to CO Springs for a short trip to sightsee and bond. Everything was so complete and very comfortable. We thank you for thinking of everything to make our stay so enjoyable.

Cozy Cottage in Old Colorado

  • 5 of 5

We had an extended stay and we really enjoyed the house as well as the area. Christina was available if we needed anything and made sure we were comfortable the entire time. I stayed with 2 children and one dog and we had plenty of space. The area is nice and there is plenty nearby to keep you busy. There is a park within walking distance to let the kids play. Pet friendly hiking trails and groomers nearby (if you should need it.) I would recommend Christina and any of her properties :) Thanks for such a pleasant stay!!

Colorado Springs Trip September 2014

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us the 19th to the 24th.. We had a wonderful time in Colo. and so enjoyed coming back to a home in the evenings. Everything we could possibly need was available to us there and we even had deer on the front lawn visit us our first morning there. It is apparent that you work hard to make your rental property a"real home away from home" for those who stay there. And it was so convenient to downtown, Pike's Peak, Garden of the Gods, ManitouSprings, and all the freeways to go outside Colorado Springs. We would definitely recommend it to others, too! It was truly a wonderful experience.

Sincerely, Lonni and Cindy

I just want to mention I Also have the cute little yellow house right across the street from the one you stayed, it is VRBO # 619156. Have a great fall and winter and I hope you can visit again.

More spacious than expected

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six stayed in the little house for six days. This is the first time we have reserved vacation lodging in this manner. We relied heavily on previous reviews and pictures and were not disappointed. The neighborhood dates from the 1890's. I wondered whether the age of the home would stir up the allergies of several in our group, but no one had a bit of difficulty. Our outdoor surroundings were peaceful at all times and the few people we saw were friendly. Most of the kitchen supplies I took with me weren't necessary. We enjoyed the variety of dishes and pans. The grandchildren, ages 5 and 3, were delighted to have their own room upstairs; and they always looked forward to bath time in the large tub up there. All ages particularly enjoyed the Mollie Kathleen Mine in Cripple Creek. I think the children would have chosen to climb on rocks in Garden of the Gods every day. The light from the lamppost in the front yard was very helpful when we came home after dark. Christina (owner) was always quick to answer our questions during the months before we stayed in the house. Characteristics of the house we particularly appreciated: The two baths, fenced backyard, quiet surroundings, tidy and cheerful exterior, washer and dryer and easy access to most of the places we visited. It felt like home!

Great time in Colorado Springs

  • 4 of 5

This was a cute house and perfect for our family's trip. We used this as our home base to visit all the great things in Colorado Springs - Pike's Peak, Garden of the Gods, USAF Academy, USOC Training Center, Manitou Springs and Colorado City. The kids' favorites were the Garden of the Gods (don't miss Red Rock Canyon Open Space as well) and the Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine up in Cripple Creek. The house was as advertised and it's the best house in the neighborhood, great job fixing it up Christina. We also had a mule deer family visiting every morning, very cute.
