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 Old Colorado City

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.

Great House! Had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay in Colorado Springs. The house is beautiful, clean, and stocked with everything that is needed. The kitchen is huge and the bedrooms are very comfortable. There are TV's in every room! The location can't be beat for getting to all the local attractions. It is only 5 - 10 minutes away from Old Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Pikes Peak, and Garden of the Gods. Christina was very helpful and made checking in and out very easy. She even offered to let us stay longer on check-out day if we wanted. I highly recommend this place.!

Cute, comfortable, convenient - great location and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Place was very clean and well appointed. The owner contacted us well ahead of time and was available if we needed anything (which we didn't, place met all our needs). We had short stay for a mini vacation and it was close to many attractions.
