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 the last 12 years and still my current location at The Broadmoor. 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 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.

More spacious than expected

  • 5 out 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 out 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.

Exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here with my in-laws and everyone was impressed with the home. The first thing we all noticed was the small attention to detail Christina has thought off. The house was relaxing and all the bedrooms provided an excellent place to rest after a day of sight seeing. While the back yard is beautifully landscaped and relaxing, we found we spent most of the mornings and nights sitting on the front porch. The fully equipped kitchen was such a convenience and luxury.

Do not hesitate to stay at this home, you will enjoy it's location to the major attractions and walking distance to the historical district.

If you enjoy hiking, be sure to visit Red Rock Canyon off Hwy 24 for scenic views and great trails.

Three Generation Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
My parents, my husband and two of my three children and I had a wonderful four nights in this perfectly located cottage. We were in town for my son's college graduation. There was plenty of room for all, the beds are so comfortable and the kitchen is very well appointed. It has a beautiful garden! We loved sitting on the porch with its view of Pike's Peak.
