The 9 Most Common Objects Left Behind in Hotel Rooms

  • September 28, 2017

When away from home, your hotel room can be a place of many things for you … a place of relaxation, vacation bliss, solitude and a place to lay your head at the end of a busy day. And while all of this is exactly what we want our Breckenridge hotel to be for our guests, one thing our hotel rooms also ending up being is a haven for misplaced belongings. While we make every attempt to return these pesky items to their rightful owners, the following is a list of the nine most common objects left at our hotel and how to avoid forgetting them in the first place: 1. Jewelry The number one item...

Welcome Brad Ragan to Our Breckenridge Hotel Team

  • September 22, 2016

'Tis the season of change. The leaves are changing colors in all of their grandeur, the weather is getting colder as the forecast of snow looms on the horizon, and a new U.S. President will be elected this November. So, it's only natural that our Breckenridge hotel follows suit as change is afoot with the hiring of our newest Guest Services Manager, Brad Ragan. Please help the Wedgewood Lodge welcome Brad to the team. A Minnesota native, Brad moved to Breckenridge 13 years ago after receiving his Bachelor's Degree in Advertising from Iowa State University and hasn't looked back since. While...

New Hires at The Wedgewood Lodge

  • July 13, 2016

It is with a heavy heart that the Wedgewood Lodge announces the departure of our Front Desk Manager, Sarah Daigle. After nearly six years of living in Breckenridge, and most of that time working at the Wedgewood Lodge, Daigle has moved on to the “hotter” pastures of Las Vegas and all of the new adventures it brings with it. We bid a fond adieu to you, Sarah, and may the promises of new adventures treat you well! With Sarah’s sad departure comes a new beginning for former Vail Resorts Front Office Assistant Manager, Jasmin Irby. Jasmin joins the Wedgewood Lodge family as the new Guest Services...

So Long, Farewell…

  • April 3, 2015

_________________________________________________________________ It is with a bit of a sniffle that we bid farewell to yodeling and lederhosen jokes.  And our fearless leader, Brigitte Rath, who once had the patience to try to teach me to say 'cutie' in her Austrian dialect, but I ran out of saliva on my second attempt. So, being the boss around here?  Well...let's put it this way... We're a rather, hm, interesting bunch.  And it takes a special kind of person to keep us in line.  One who isn't afraid to shred vacation requests when we get a little too rambunctious....

Wheely Impressed with Summit Express

  • December 4, 2014

This week we had the distinct pleasure of meeting with Val, our rep with Summit Express, for some BLTs and chit-chat. Surprisingly, Sarah and I forgot to ask Val if she is a fan of the Walking Dead. Because Sarah and I? Are apocalypse obsessed. Just ask Joel at Charter Sports who stops by rather often to talk about skis.  And zombies. I'm sure Brigitte and Kate were relieved. Ahem, where was I?  Ah, yes.  BLTs.  And the awesome Val.  Seriously?  Val is great.  And we all had nice chit-chat, lack of apocalypse plan discussion notwithstanding. Oftentimes...

Small Town Living

  • November 7, 2014

In fifteen years I've yet to go to the Post Office or the City Market without running into someone I know. Generally the number of people I run into would seem to be in direct correlation with the lack of effort I put into looking presentable that day.  Naturally.  A good friend of mine recently posted on Facebook that she loves living in a town where, upon realizing she had forgotten her wallet, she continued grocery shopping confident she would run into someone she knew who would spot her the goods.  And, of course, she did.  I've had many similar experiences.  My children...

I Wanna Be Like Eduardo

  • October 18, 2014

I have been under contract to buy a house since August 26th of this year. It has been…something else.  Actually, it's always something else.  I gave them everything.  Pretty much anything I'd touched in the past six months that had a number on it.  Only to find out they needed something else.  An explanation of this $20 deposit, a picture of a dollar bill drawn by my eldest.  A side of fries.  You get the idea. For the record, I have not closed yet. It has been delayed twice since October 1st. Though, the other day I was reassured it will happen. The underwriting...

Seeing Stars

  • November 26, 2013

Zube: All righty, let's see who has to be nice to who in the office today. *flipping to the horoscopes on the last page of the Summit Daily* Zube: Nice!  Four star day for me!  Oh, Beth, you're going to have a four star day, too! Beth: Great.  So we don't have to be nice to each other. *Brigitte strolls in* Zube: Brigitte, Brigitte, Libra.  Uh-oh.  Only three stars.  Beth, we have to be nice to Brigitte today. Beth: We always have to be nice to Brigitte.  She's the GM. Zube: Heh. This horoscope check?  Is a morning ritual.  Except...

NorthSide Pizza…It’s What’s for Lunch

  • November 3, 2013

Usually somewhere between 8:05AM and 8:30AM the topic of conversation around here will turn to what everyone plans to have for lunch. And it carries on intermittently throughout the morning. Every once in a while it quiets down. Like when Beth is eating her grapefruit. Or I'm eating my ramen noodles. (Yes. I really just said that. I'm old enough to be President and I still eat ramen.) And when Sarah or Brigitte are drinking their fancy shakes. Well, they call them juices but I personally contend that juices are made of things that grow on trees. Like apples and oranges. However, things that...
