About Kris Rogers

We are recently 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 Yosemite Area

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 trail 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 and motorcycles.

A beautiful great lodge!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving at the lodge. It is huge and clean, and there are plenty to do for the kids and adults. My kids want to stay at the lodge and don't want to leave. Yosemite is about 1 hour 20 min away. Mariposa and Oakhurst are about 20 min away. It was a great family gathering for us. Everyone had a great time!

Booking is easy, instruction is very clear. Kris is very responsive. Thank you for sharing your wonderful lodge!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having this wonderful family stay for the holiday. We love hearing that our guests had a fantastic time at the lodge. Just to clarify, via Hwy 140 we are a usually a scenic 60 minutes to Yosemite Valley through historic Mariposa. We are 30 minutes from the Hwy 41 Yosemite (Glacier Point) entrance. Traffic and road conditions can effect travel times.

Wow...Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

The Howling Wolf Lodge was the best getaway place for my family of 9 persons. Its proximity to Yosemite National Park was perfect - not too far. The place was as described and we, children as well as retirees, found plenty to do after hiking the trails in Yosemite Park. Kris was attentive to our changing plans and made it easy to accommodate our final plans. Great place for a family escape in the wild, with all the comfort of modern life.

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

Booking was a breeze. The owner answered all questions promptly. Check-in instructions, house rules and check-out instructions were clear. Our security deposit was refunded quickly and the owner followed up regarding our stay.

This property far exceeded our expectations. And I'm a picky, OCD type person. It is absolutely gorgeous. I can't describe in words how beautiful it is. Clean and comfortable. Everything we needed and more was there. The location was great. Close to Bass Lake and not too far away from Yosemite. And the home itself has so much to entertain you with that just hanging out there is a great day! We were so happy here and will definitely come back.

Thank you to the Rogers for sharing your lovely home!

Great house, great activities!

  • 4 of 5

If there was a pool, this house would get 5 stars no question! But we loved it none the less, and would return with family and friends again. If you are looking to stay near Yosemite, there isn't a better option than the howling wolf lodge!

Owner's Response: We are pleased your enjoyed your stay. We take extra care to provide amenities and all the supplies you would need to enjoy your stay in our custom built luxury home. Although I understand that a pool would be nice, there are numerous reasons that we do not have one, the severe drought being one. It is unreasonable to dock us a star for that, as we do not advertise having a pool and if that is important, then another property would be a better option. We focus instead on providing upscale wholesome entertainment for families and friends on a secluded property surrounded by nature. We wish you well in future travels. Sincerely, Kris

Breathtaking home

  • 5 of 5

My family of three generations all loved this home for many reasons. The most common one being the backyard and fun activities. The backyard was surreal. Bocce ball was popular with the younger guests and the exceptional pergola sitting area was where the adults lounged most of the time. We did make use of the putting green as well. The hummingbirds were a constant source of entertainment. The actual house was just as amazing and perfect for us in every way. The house was immaculate and had everything that we needed for preparing food. We appreciated the spices and things left for guests to aid in cooking. The bedrooms were all very nicely appointed with comfortable beds and plenty of space. The location was very convenient to visit Yosemite National Park and local towns. My dad said he would travel from Portland Oregon just to stay in this house again even if he were not visiting any of the local sites. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for an exceptional vacation home oasis. Kris is very easy to work with and responds quickly to questions.
