Rhonda has been with The Lodge since 2004. She worked in many departments until becoming the General Manager in 2011. Rhonda is originally from Wichita, Kansas, and has been a Breckenridge local since 1997. She loves snowboarding, snowmobiling, hiking, paddle boarding and camping. Her chocolate lab, Dagen, loves welcoming guests when they arrive. Rhonda truly cares about her guests and her team; she is always looking for new ways to enhance everyone’s experience and Create the WOW!
Introducing the newest Breck team member: Dagen, our Director of Pet Relations! Dagen has big paws to fill, as many might remember our past canine director, Kabastian. Dagen is a chocolate lab puppy FULL of energy; he enjoys meeting every person or pooch he sees. We hope you meet Dagen while you're here, as we are sure he would love a belly rub! Watch as he grows these next few years and starts to step into his new position. Dagen looks forward to ensuring your canine companions have a tail-waggin' stay and welcomes them to share their experiences at The Lodge at Breckenridge.
Katie is a Breckenridge native (some people call these people unicorns, since they seem to be so rare). After college at the University of Colorado at Boulder, she went on to pursue one of her greatest passions – travel – before landing back in Breckenridge. The mountain lifestyle and love of skiing is what really brought her back, but it’s now officially home (again) after meeting her husband there and adopting a fur baby, Winnie, in March of 2020. She loves to share her passion for the beautiful place she grew up with people from across the country.
Over the past few years, Natalie has been a significant part of the success that The Lodge’s Sales and Catering team has experienced. In 2018, Natalie created and stepped into a new position: Wedding Coordinator. This position has been very popular with our clients, providing that much-needed direct support for our brides and grooms on their special day. She not only ensures that all of her events are seamless and go off without any hiccups, but also routinely goes that extra step to exceed expectations. This is proven by the rave reviews she consistently receives from her clients and fellow team members. It is obvious that she loves what she does, as she remains calm and positive no matter what is going on behind the scenes – always with a genuine smile on her face.
Kat has been an amazing addition to our team from her very first day on the job. Her genuinely warm and welcoming personality makes her a natural with our guests. It only takes a few minutes to realize that she truly cares about others and always strives to make each individual’s stay as special and enjoyable as possible.
She CREATES THE WOW on a daily basis!
Patty and Tabitha have each been part of our Banquets Team since its inception. On a weekly basis they help lead their fellow team members to ensure that every event we host is a success. They truly know their jobs backward and forward, often times trouble-shooting issues before anyone else even knows about them. During the past few months these ladies have stepped up even more by assisting at the last minute, creating schedules, and above all directing new members of the team – never saying “it’s not my job.”
Sue and Kelsey are the heart of our Housekeeping Department. Lately, they have faced a very difficult time being short-staffed and have worked incredibly hard because of it. There have been days when they have cleaned rooms all day, or done laundry all day, or stripped rooms – all while managing their team and completing inspections. We would not have been able to ensure our guest experience without either of these ladies. We can’t thank you enough for all you do for the entire hotel!
Whitney has been our Front Desk Supervisor here at The Lodge at Breckenridge for several years. She is one of those special people that is always smiling and happy to see every single person she comes in contact with. She loves talking with our guests on all of the activities we enjoy here in Breck. Her ever-present infectiously positive attitude is one of her best qualities, and enables her to handle with genuine care all guest needs, from the simplest to the most challenging. The Lodge wouldn’t be quite the same without her, and we are so proud that she is part of our team.
