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.

Howling Wolf Lodge is more spectacular than photos reveal!

  • 5 of 5

Howling Wolf was even nicer than the photos showed.The lodge was well planned and great layout. The kitchen was a focus point and everyone loved the setting on the hill with no other houses in site. The bed swing gazebo was a great hit as well. We happened to be there during the harvest moon which added to the experience. The drive was not bad going to Yosemite two days and even drove to Kings Canyon to see the General Sherman Tree and the other amazing Sequoia trees on another day. Our son and girlfriend thought they were at the wrong place when they drove up with all the lights in the courtyard. The owners have gone over the top to assure a great stay with a great guest book with detailed dinning tips that were very helpful. It was very nice to find notes to help ourselves to spices etc that was a nice gesture. The complimentary champagne was a very nice gesture as well. It was perfect and we made great family memories with our adult son and his girlfriend. We felt comfortable enough to stand outside and Howl at the moon every night. Try that in your stuffy cities!

What an awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 6 adults & 4 kids---ages 10, 6, 5 & 3. Every age had a blast! Lots of space for all to spread out and the yard was so much fun, with all of the games! About an hour from the Yosemite entrance---the town of Mariposa is really cute too! Mariposa coffee roasters was SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!! The house also had a VERY informative guest book with an extensive amount of trail info, local restaurants, things to do, etc. Would absolutely go back! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous house!

Great place in a great setting!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. Stayed three nights during our trip to Yosemite. Great amenities! Really enjoyed coming home, making dinner in the wonderful kitchen and eating dinner on the back porch. Our nightly badminton and bocce matches were fun. Saw lots of birds, including many humming birds, goldfinches and a large flock of wild turkey.
