About Katie Kingsbery

The Russell Clan currently lives all over the country - Illinois, Nevada, Colorado, North Carolina, South 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 Kristie 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

Why Katie Kingsbery chose Breckenridge Area

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.

What makes this house unique

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 Kristie's three girls, ages 10, 12, and 14, 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 of Peak 9, downtown, or the gondola. The shuttle is frequent, reliable and easy to use.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Wapiti Lodge. The location was perfect with a short walk to town with the seclusion you need by not being so close. The amenities in the house were plentiful. We cooked home 5 out of the 7 nights and there was a cooking tool for everything. The rooms were comfortable and we had fun with ping pong tournaments almost every night. This place was a perfect location for a small family reunion. We hope you enjoy it as much as our family did.

Fantastic house,in a great area

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation included 6 children and 8 adults ranging in age from 3 to 64. Wapiti Lodge more than met everyone's needs and wants, and the proximity to Breckenridge made everything easy. Gretchen and Chris were phenomenal.

We would recommend Wapiti Lodge very highly.

WAPITI LODGE - GREAT FOR FAMILY FRIENDS RETREAT

  • 5 of 5

Breckenridge is a family friendly town. The Wapiti Lodge is an amazing accommodation and certainly met or exceeded our expectations. Great kids and adult spaces great wifi and a fantastic kitchen - well thought out - a gourmet kitchen. A word to the wise - a couple of sea level people experienced altitude sickness - get hydrated before you go and don't overdo it first day - and you will have a great time - hiking, biking, alpine slide, Breckenridge rec center (amazing sports facility - my grandson loved the skate park and the rest loved the pool) shopping or just relaxing in the hot tub. The July 4th parade was lots of family fun! The Blanchette 2017 Family Reunion certainly enjoyed this special property. The owners and property managers are very responsive and easy to deal with - thanks!!!
