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 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-1:00PM 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

Thank you for providing us with such a warm and comfortable home. We enjoyed playing Battleship-dinner on the picnic table, as well as the dining room. The rooms were very comfortable and inviting. Love all the cute touches. The front porch is so relaxing! We spent lots of time out there.

Your home is lovely and the location was perfect.

Loved all our walks and adventures!



EVERYTHING WAS GREAT



Thanks

Very quaint house within walking distance of Old Colorado City.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean and located close to restaurants for every taste. We were amazed at the thoughtfulness put into what a person might need. Every time I opened a cabinet or closet I was surprised at what Christina has provided for her guests. We always travel with our own supplies since previous VRBOs didn't provide the items we are use but Christina thought of everything! The house is over 100 years old and a little unlevel but that just gives it character. We really enjoyed our stay!

Absolutely Adorable:)

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I had such a great time in Colorado Springs, even though it rained we still were able to do everything we wanted to. Christina's home is so cute, we felt welcomed the second we pulled up outside. The house was perfect size for the 5 of us. Very cozy and warm. Would definitely stay here again. We walked to the main street for coffee one morning and walked to have lunch the next day. Thank you Christina!!! :)

It is centrally located to all of the major activities in the area. Additionally, the house was very clean and the owner was great to work with. We would recommend this house to anyone wanting to visit the area.
