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.

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.

Great Home, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay (Oct 8-14, 2016) in this great home. We loved the quiet neighborhood and it's close proximity to the many attractions. It was just four blocks to W Colorado, a five minute walk, where there's plenty of shops and restaurants. The Garden of the Gods and Pike's Peak are just minutes' drives, plus many other adventures. King Soopers grocery is a few minutes drive and has everything you'd possible need. In the event you'd like to cook, the fully stocked kitchen has ample utilities to do so.

We're looking to return again and hopefully spending more time adventuring all the sites and trails, and of course, staying here again.

Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean and cozy house perfect for our family weekend at Colorado College. Great location and quiet neighborhood. The host was responsive and even suggested a new local dentist for our son who just moved to the area.
