About Kris Rogers

We are semi-retired professionals in the San Francisco Bay Area. Kris was a Radiologic Technologist and Don was an Engineering Project Manager. We were attracted to the beauty and tranquility of the area.

Kris Rogers purchased this house in 2010

Why Kris Rogers chose Mariposa

Our honeymoon was in Yosemite and we have shared a love of this area. We loved the open concept, exposed wood beam ceiling in the living room, the slate floors, and granite counter tops. We saw the potential in this property from the immediate yard area to the more remote areas that are picturesque and great for future development.

What makes this house unique

We love looking at our mountain view, the beautiful sunsets, and the visiting wildlife. While drinking coffee on our covered patio we enjoy watching the hummingbirds. Evenings are enjoyed with a glass of wine while relaxing on the swing bed under the covered pergola. Other activities include working on the property, hiking, riding bicycles, ATVs, and motorcycles.

Well thought out, large, comfortable space to relax.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7, 3 generations, had more than enough room to spread out and relax after long days in Yosemite and boating. Any questions that came up were answered promptly and to my satisfaction. We would definitely recommend Howling Wolf Lodge.

Fantastic home. Perfect location for visits to Yosemite.

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed this home during our 4 day visit to Yosemite. It has everything you need and more! Our kids loved the fun activities outside in the back and the games and Wii in the house. Kitchen is fantastic. A perfect place to end each day after full schedule of exploring the national park.

Family mini getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Howling Wolf Lodge as a mini vacation because my niece was getting married in Yosemite. It was a little far from the venue, but what a fantastic place! My husband, our son, daughter, son-in-law and our three grandchildren had such a fun time! The backyard activities kept us entertained and we never laughed harder. We made sure that we played badminton, bocce ball, and the 9 hole putting green. Inside we were entertained with the air hockey game, foosball and Wii!

The lodge is beautiful! A little dark for my taste, but lovely nonetheless. We will make an attempt to stay here again when we plan a trip to Yosemite! Thank you to Kris and Don for their hospitality and sharing their home!

Luxurious mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Howling Wolf Lodge while attending a family event in Mariposa. The property was way beyond our expectations, roomy, well equipped, and the outdoors landscape was amazing. The kids enjoyed the golf, badminton and the adults loved the lounging areas. One of the best places I have stayed in. Highly recommended!

Thanks Kris!

large beautiful property with lots of amenities

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home with lots of space for relaxing- both indoor and out. We were a family group of 7 that all enjoyed our stay at Howling Wolf Lodge. Well equipped kitchen, and everything you need for a great stay. Lots of fun with golf, badminton and bocce. It took us one hour drive to Yosemite Valley. Only minor complaint was some of the pillows were very flat, otherwise the linens were top shelf.

Once inside the gate it is another 10 minutes to the valley floor. The drive to the Hwy 41 Yosemite south gate takes 30 minutes. Our favorite hikes are The Mist Trail, Sentinel Dome, and Glacier Point trail down to the Valley Floor.
