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 Warrior's Mark
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.

Family Gathering in Breck
This was a great house for our family of 19 people, ages 3-80 years to gather for a week together! The size of the house along with its location and amenities worked very well for us. This home has an amazing supply of kitchen pans and appliances!! The "Wapiti Lodge" guide book was SUPER helpful and was used multiple times a day. The owners have thought of everything, and either provide it in the house or through recommendations in their lodge binder. It was easy to walk, bike, or ride the bus to town. Lots of fun for everyone! Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Better than advertised!
The property was spacious, elegantly outfitted and in great condition. If anything, the photos did not do it justice. The location was also outstanding. The gray town bus system stopped two doors up and ran every twenty minutes to downtown.
Plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms and living space. In addition, the house is solidly built - noise does not travel up to the bedrooms from the main floor.
Great experience overall and would highly recommend Wapiti Lodge to anyone desiring a fantastic stay in Breckenridge.
The house was perfect for our family gathering! Beautiful home, location was great, and everything you need in the kitchen!
It was a nice quiet place, And we enjoyed it, i would rent it again 🙂👍
We had four families in our group, and the house was perfect for us-there were 17 in our group, and we did not feel crowded at all. We truly had everything we needed. The homeowner and property managers were quick to respond to any questions we had during our stay. The kitchen was outfitted with everything we could possibly need, and more! Great vacation, and would definitely stay here again! Thanks for sharing your home with us!
