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.

Ski bunch from the Pocono’s
This house was terrific for a large group of skiers! There was a bedroom & bath for all 8 of our crew, which was great. We could easily had more people! . Nothing was lacking when it came to the kitchen! I want to thank Katie, the owner, for her attention to detail. The location is great, the Free Bus stop is just 2 doors up, very convenient for getting into town and to ski Breck. We had 2 snow days and 4 Bluebird ski days! What more could we ask for! Thanks Katie we loved the Wapiti Lodge, what a terrific time and place to stay. Thank you!
We felt at home vacation !
Summarize ?? Not easy !!
Will try :-)
It all starts with our initial booking and service as it is not only the property. Great service prior to our arrival with accurate information we needed in order to initiate our stay.
The property itself is as advertised. Sometimes there are overrated offers which was not our case. And this is very important from day one.
Plenty of rooms in a well distributed property as we did not feel crowded.
This is why we felt at home vacation !
Muchas gracias from Panama and we do hope to return.
Breckenridge skiing Feb 2020
The Wapiti Lodge was a great base amp for a ski week. We had 8 adults and 9 children (5-12) and had all the room we wanted. The ski room was an easy place to store and dry our gear overnight, and the hot tub was a great way to wind down after a long day. The free shuttle bus is no more than 30 yards away and drops you right at the Beaver Run area of Peak 9 in just a few minutes. Finally, the organization of the house is the best of any rental I’ve ever had. It has everything you need (and many things you probably didn’t realize you wanted) all easily accessible and labeled. This is a great location for a large group and we look forward to coming back again.
Deluxe house a 15 min walk away from downtown!
The house was amazing! Super well stocked in the kitchen - everything you could possibly need. The location is great with the shuttle bus stop seconds away. It was perfect for our 19 person group. They had games and toys galore, items you may need for infants, etc. The glove dryer was handy :) Would definitely stay here again. They even provided a welcome basket with goodies and wine. Thanks for an awesome vacay!
Wonderful Vacation Dec 28- Jan 4 2020
This home was beyond our expectations and we have used Verbo a lot for family gatherings. It was immaculate and so well organized. Well appointed bedrooms, bathrooms, and overall floor plans we felt right at home. Kids loved all the games and pool/ping pong table provided. Location could not have been better. Free ride bus system was just 2 doors down extremely easy to use. Katie is the most gracious hostess. She answered all our questions promptly and took care of all our needs. Great time had by all Thanks
