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.

Great comfortable place, good location, high quality furniture

  • 5 of 5

To give maximum score

- plastic cups & plates would have been useful, 1) for garden use & 2) make it more toddler friendly (fortunately we brought our own) and

- a highchair , we were able to borrow one from friends in Denver, would have struggled without it, and really that's the only thing missing

Other than that ...

Super location, felt safe & not far from tourist spots

Very comfortable beds & furniture

Well equipped kitchen & laundry

Nice to have the garden option

Very cute house in a great location that was close to everything. The home was very cozy and comfortable and provided all that you would need. Bedrooms were comfy too. Our only issue was with the downstairs bathroom toliet not working so well. Hopefully it will be repaired so there are actually 2 fully functional bathrooms. I would recommend this cute little house for a family stay.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect - excellent location, good kitchen, comfortable beds, and a cozy living room. We enjoyed wandering over to Colorado Avenue and it was a short drive to the Garden of the Gods. We felt very safe and the area seems to be a lovely community. Thumbs up!!

This house had everything we needed for cooking meals. Such a cute, clean house and nicely decorated. Within walking distance of restaurants and shops. We'd gladly stay here again.

A thoroughly enjoyable stay...this is a great house with everything we needed and beyond!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my two children for several days in March. The location was perfect. Garden of the Gods and Pike's Peak were easy to reach, and the shopping/entertainment district was within walking distance too. We spent a lot of time at the nearby park (just a few blocks away, so we could walk) when we weren't doing the tourist attractions. The house itself was great, indoors and outdoors. Since we were lucky to have beautiful weather the whole time, we were able to eat outside in the backyard and enjoy the stars at night. What a great place! I'll definitely return if and when I have the chance.
