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.

It was great!
We have never stayed in a better place. It was stocked with everything you could ever need in every area. I don’t know how many times we commented how nice it was that Katie’s family thought of nearly everything for us from a high class kitchen stocked with great appliances, plates & silverware, etc.
we wanted for nothing!! The game room was great, great TV’s, wonderful fireplace, eating areas, etc, etc. the towels were exceptional for the hot tub and well stocked for the bathrooms. I would highly recommend this wonderful place to stay. It was close to town and the slopes. 5 Star all the way around.

Fabulous for Big Groups!
10 over-40 ski bums stayed here. It was set up perfectly for a big group of individuals. Multiple families could easily stay here too. The house was over and above set up in terms of appliances, housewares etc. At other rentals, I would need to go to target for basic stuff like spices and coffee filters etc. But not here. Many items are in the pantry for use by renters. Great set up. Thanks a bunch
Wapiti Lodge is a wonderful home for a big group of family or friends. Spacious and close to town.
My group of 14 fit in this home perfectly! Everyone in a bed, everyone at the table, everyone happy. Lots of space to spread out across the two living spaces and game room. And the shuttle comes almost right to the house, so getting to the slopes is just a short ride around the corner. Love this place!
This is an amazing house; close to the lifts, modern, fully outfitted for comfort and so quiet!
Our family stayed 5 nights at this beautiful warm and inviting house. It was a family reunion with ages from 85 to 8 months. Our time together was so great and a main reason was staying here. It's close to the drop off lifts for our boarders, so comfy for the kids and babies to spend the days at home, plenty of room for games nights and quiet time in our rooms. The bedrooms were spacious and had all you could need and more. The house is so quiet and the rooms sound proof - considering we had 4 babies under a year! . The kitchen was outfitted with everything you could ask for; small appliances, great pots and pans, plenty of dishes and lots of cupboard space for all the food we brought to feed our group for the week. Getting to town was easy, even walked back from town one day- very easy.
We loved being able to stay in one home among 9 families represented. Preparing to come was a joy as the owner was so helpful and open to ensure our time was special. Overall this was a very special time and we are so grateful to have an amazing place to build memories that will last.... thank you so much
Great Location and good layout for a large group
The kitchen had all the cooking supplies we needed. The kids loved the bunk near the pool table. The lodge was well maintained. The location is perfect close to town for shopping, close to peak 9 parking and lifts, a very short walk to the free shuttle.
We will denfinitely be back next year!
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.
