About John Ogle

John Ogle purchased this house in 1995
Why John Ogle chose Homer
Bear Paw Adventure’s unique log buildings are situated on 14+ acres of an old homestead site. This use of the property is the first since the homestead days. We have attempted to keep the site, to the extent practical, as we found it. Evidence of the homestead activities can still be seen on the land. The slope of the land protects the property, to some extent, from the brisk winds off Cook Inlet. It is a nearly wild site with lots of spruce trees, alders and wildflower and a great place to watch for moose, eagles, ravens and other wildlife.
What makes this house unique
The 14+ acre property offers are a great sample of real rural Alaska and the full-scribed log buildings with their Alaskan décor provide interesting and comfortable one-of-a-kind lodging. The busy tourism centers in nearby communities are within easy reach so that guests can enjoy those activities and then retreat their own private Alaska at Bear Paw Adventure. For those who come to Alaska to enjoy nature, this is the place to stay.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Spectacular cabin , so cozy, private and all one could ever use. Loved the private deck. Had an awesome walk on the property. Enjoyed our entire stay. Had a blast halibut fishing, seeing the Iditarod kennels in Seward. Loved the drives into homer. Could not have imagined a nicer cabin. Thank you for all the trip planning the months before our visit. P.S. I really enjoyed your family's moose hunt movie.
