The Russell Clan currently lives all over the country - Massachusetts, Maryland, Texas, Colorado, North Carolina and Florida - but share a love for Colorado which began in 1983 when Grandparents Phil and Connie were stationed at Fitzsimmons Army Medical Center in Denver. The love continued when son Richard and new bride moved to the Denver area in 1998. Grandson Russell followed in 2003 to the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado springs. Other family members, no longer able to stay away, joined together to purchase Wapiti Lodge, a home gracious and spacious enough for all of us to be together.

Katie Kingsbery purchased this house in 2005

What's not to love about Breckenridge? It is a wonderful mountain town with something for everyone and a town with as much to do in the summer as in the winter. Breckenridge gives us a wonderful respite from the sweltering heat and humidity back East and some true winter weather absent from the South. Its proximity to Denver makes it easily accessible for those who have to fly to Colorado. We can be in Breckeridge in under two hours after landing at DIA. Access to world class fly fishing, skiing, dining, shopping, hiking, not to mention the surrounding beauty and scenery made Breckenridge an easy choice.

After the home itself, with all its charm and comfort, the second most wonderful thing about Wapiti Lodge is its proximity to town. Katie and Doug often walk into town in the morning for a breakfast burrito. Connie and Phil are known to walk to town to get the paper. Ellen (the big shopper of the family)is usually able to convince someone to walk into town to go shopping. Richard and Krisitie's three girls, age 4, 6, and 7 love to walk to town knowing they can always take the bus home (the shuttle stop is one door up). And the whole family has been known to walk into town after dinner for ice cream. In the winter when the weather does not permit you to walk, the free shuttle takes just minutes to get to the base Peak 9, downtown, or the Gondola. The shuttle is frequent, reliable and easy to use.

BEST RENTAL HOUSE EVER!!

  • 5 of 5
Have rented many houses from VRBO but this home far exceeded any thing I have ever stayed in. There were 15 us from ages 2-85 and we all just loved it. Have plenty of nice linens, VCRS, kitchen equipment and lots of space for everyone. So nice for a change to have enough baths and bedrooms without feeling crowded or frustrated. Even had a red fox pay our yard a visit during dinner time. Would definitely rent this again and just can't say enough about this place or the helpful owners.

WAPITI LODGE ..... TO CALL IT PERFECT DOES NOT DO IT JUSTICE.

  • 5 of 5
A couple of weeks ago we had the great opportunity to stay at the Wapiti Lodge for a college reunion. Our experience there could not have been better. The home was beautifully furnished and appointed. It was well-stocked with everything we needed. We were a party of eighteen 26-28 year old males and females and one baby!!! Everyone's needs were beautifully met.The number of beds in the house is perfect for a large party. The house was spacious, and had everything we could possibly need and much much more (all of the highest quality).The kitchen was fabulous. It was immaculately clean and completely updated with wonderful cabinets and appliances and a beautiful granite counter-top. The hot tub was a huge plus it was top of the line and almost brand new. The house has a wireless sound system you can control with your phone that is very fun to use. All the linens where of the highest quality with enough for everyone plus plenty to spare. The house has 3 very separate living areas so people where able to be playing pool in one room while others could be relaxing in the main living room by the fire while yet another group could be playing poker and watching tv in the den. It would also be great for families with different age group children. The house has plenty of bathrooms for everyone and we never ran out of hot water even with 6 showers running at the same time. The beds are very comfortable.

It's proximity to town was great, and there was certainly great access to everything nearby, and tons to do. The city free bus stops basically right nest too the house. Our stay was everything we had hoped for and more. For anyone desiring wonderful, spacious, clean, well-appointed accommodations this is the place. Can't wait to go back!

GREAT FOR LARGE FAMILIES, EXTREMELY WELL SUPPLIED

  • 5 of 5
Wapati lodge was absolutely PERFECT for my extended family. My mother, two sisters, our spouses and our 9 children spent a wonderful weekend here. The home is lovely and I have never stayed in a VRBO home that was so well provisioned. We had our family Thanksgiving there and they had absolutely everything we could have needed. We certainly did not expect there to be a roasting pan large enough for a turkey, but they had it! The house layout was perfect for our large group—plenty of bedroom space and separate places to relax for adults and kids, but large enough rooms for the times we all wanted to be together. It was close to everything and there was enough to do in the house to keep us entertained. If we have another opportunity to visit Breckenridge, we will certainly stay here again.

WONDERFUL WAPITI LODGE!

  • 5 of 5
Our family (grandparents, 3 mid-40s couples, and 5 kids ranging from 1 year to 18), living in California, Connecticut and Boulder, Colorado, just returned from a week's vacation at Wapiti Lodge, and we can't rave enough about it. We've stayed in many rental homes all over the country, many of them very nice, but all agreed that this was the best of all!

The house is spacious, beautifully laid out (6 bedrooms upstairs, 4 with private baths, and 2 downstairs), and extraordinarily well equipped. Nothing has been overlooked. The kitchen has every kind of appliance, large and small, wonderful new pots and pans, and plenty of dishes, with all the cupboards labeled as to their contents. We cooked elaborate meals most evenings, and the cooks never felt isolated, as the kitchen adjoins the dining and living rooms. The hot tub, ping pong table, and numerous games for the whole family helped make our stay enjoyable, and the separate den gave those who wanted to watch TV or work (2 of the adults are free-lance writers who needed to work occasionally) the opportunity to do so with company or without, depending on their needs.

The house is perfectly situated, close enough for us to be able to walk to the center of town, but in a woodsy area that was very quiet and lovely for our evening after-dinner walks. There are so many things to do in and around Breckenridge, and we availed ourselves of many of them: most notably several beautiful hikes and a wonderful bike ride from Alpine Sports, where we rented the bikes, to the neighboring town of Frisco, with lots of variety of terrain, and a pickup and return by Alpine after we had enjoyed lunch in Frisco. We also used the Rec Center, where some played outdoor basketball and others swam and used the giant slide inside. We enjoyed dinner one night at Mi Casa, and had two wonderful lunches at Crepes al a Carte--a great experience!

The photos and description of the house were perfectly accurate, and Katie, one of the owners, was very responsive to our questions and concerns before the trip and made sure that the one small problem we encountered (a malfunctioning TV) was corrected immediately. Everything about the house was perfectly maintained and very clean and attractive. We highly recommend Wapiti Lodge and hope to return sometime!

5 DELIGHTFUL VISITS!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 5th stay at the Wapiti Lodge and each visit has been wonderful. Our family of 15 gets together once a year for a Family Vacation and we could not ask for a better place to stay. The house is beautifully decorated and maintained and the kitchen is a dream and is fantastically well equipped. There are tons of things to do in the area and the hot tub was a joy to return to after our excursions. The house is perfect for kids - puzzles, games, toys, swing set are all provided - and a delight for adults. I give it the highest recommendation!

WONDERFUL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Three families spent a summer week here for our annual reunion. Thirteen adults from 26 to 60, and three children ages 0-5 fit comfortably in this spacious house. We could not have been more pleased.
Although we had no problems both the property managers and the owner called to check on us .
Each family took turns cooking the evening meal in the spacious well equipped kitchen. There is more All-Clad cookware in this house than in William-Sonoma. Nothing is lacking and all very well labeled so do not bother bringing anything from home. It will be here . We loved the two separate living areas, so TV watchers had their own space. Two large eating tables and a wonderful outside grill and patio made eating at the house fun . A swing set for the kids and a (brand new) hot tub were just outside the door. There is a bookcase full of games for all ages . Six bedrooms upstairs (two with twins ) and two bunk rooms downstairs meant everyone had a bed, no one had to sleep on a pull out sofa . Four of the upstairs bathrooms have private bathrooms, all the beds were very comfortable.
We chose this house because not only did it have 8 bedrooms , it was close enough to walk to town It is about a mile to the heart of Breckenridge, but an easy twenty minute walk. This was important to our group because no one wanted to have to take a car every time we left the house . The walk take you past the Blue River, just fifty yards from the house. The fishermen in your group can practice their fly fishing or the kids can throw a hook in the river. Breckenridge has so many activities, our family had to narrow it down to guided fishing, mountain hiking, Alpine slide and fun park (be sure and do the mountain Seg- ways) , horseback riding at Breckenridge Stables, bike riding down Vail Pass ( we took all the children) and the Alpine Zip Line . It was a great week . I'm so glad we spent it at Wapiti Lodge.
