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.

Just what we needed

This cozy house was just what we needed for seeing the sights around Colorado Springs. Central to where we wanted to go and had all the comforts of home.

Perfect location, Wonderful Renter! Beyond amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not even sure where to begin...but our stay at Christina's home exceeded our expectations incredibly. It was well equipped with a lot of things you might forget, and very homey indeed! Nice decor, awesome backyard. Christina was very helpful and kind before, during, and after our stay. Everything we wanted to do was less than 10 minutes away, including Garden of the Gods, Red Rock Canyon, and the shops in Manitou Springs. The one set of shops near us was even in walking distance! I would stay here over and over! Heck, I'd even live here. It was one of the most amazing trips I have ever gone on and in my opinion, Christina's home really made the trip. Thank you again for opening your home to us!!

Perfect getaway rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a few days in December with our three Chihuahuas. It is a cozy and comfortable place within close proximity to everything we wanted to do. The fenced in backyard was perfect for the dogs, and we had all the amenities we care about (including fast internet). We have no complaints and would happily stay here again the next time we are in the Springs.

The house is cozy and warm. Good thing as is snowed while we were there. The owner came and shoved snow so we could get to our vehicle. Thanks for the hospitality.
