About John Ogle

Bear Paw Adventure has been offering lodging service under the same ownership at this location since 1995, although in the early days this family business was known as Bear Paw Charters. John, Sr is your reservations and pre-check in information contact. John enjoyed working as a professional engineer in the Chemical Industry, primarily in Hydrocarbons and Energy production and on environmental projects before joining John Jr. in this exciting Alaskan adventure. His hobbies include the Alaska outdoor adventures, photography and gardening. Once you arrive at Anchor Point, John, Jr will be your host. John has lived in Alaska since 1986 and has 5 children. He is a carpenter, log furniture and log cabin builder (he built the log buildings at Bear Paw Adventure, starting with beetle-killed spruce trees) and a retired commercial fisherman and sports fishing guide. His hobbies include all the Alaska outdoor adventures including gold prospecting and gardening. He also enjoy sailing in Florida and the Bahamas in the winter months. John has hunted and fished much of Alaska and he is a valuable resource for guests seeking advice about fishing or what to see in Alaska.

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.

Perfect stay at Wise Old Hunter Lodge!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed at Wise Old Hunter Lodge for our honeymoon in Alaska. The owner/property manager of Bear Paw Adventure was extremely accommodating since we wanted the adventure package with a different cabin than what was offered on the website. He worked it out so that we could get the adventure package with the cabin we wanted. The owner/property manager helped us schedule all of our adventure activities during our stay at Wise Old Hunter Lodge, which was a beautiful cabin that perfectly suited our needs. The activities scheduled for us included bear viewing at Katmai National Park and Preserve (the adventure of a lifetime!), a halibut fishing charter (we’re still enjoying all of the delicious halibut we caught), a hiking/kayaking combo trip (we did this one in the rain, but it was still fun), and a Kenai Fjords cruise (this adventure activity is a must—you won’t be disappointed!). We loved all of the activities that were scheduled for us. Having someone else schedule our activities for us was a tremendous help planning our trip to Alaska. We hope that we get to return to Bear Paw Adventure for a longer visit someday. One week was not long enough! We’re grateful to Bear Paw Adventure for ensuring our trip to Alaska was as amazing as we hoped it would be. We highly recommend staying at Bear Paw Adventure if you’re planning a trip to Homer or Anchor Point!

Moose Cabin

  • 5 out of 5
I live in Juneau and had never been to Homer before. I planned a trip in July 2014 and after some research decided to stay at the Moose Cabin in Anchor Point. I was very impressed with the quality of this facility and how big it was. I instantly fell in love with the place and how quiet and serene this cabin is and yet it had all the amenities you could ask for. Everything is exactly how I would have decorated the place and thought several times how easy it would be for me to live there. I highly recommend staying at Bear Paw Adventure and in the future would not hesitate to stay there again when I'm in the area. The only negative thing I would say is the shower did not have much water pressure so I'm not sure if that was an isolated problem at the time but that did not stop me from enjoying myself while I stayed there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and we are happy you enjoyed the Moose Cabin. Since your stay, we have put our new water well in service, and this provides better water pressure for the Moose Cabin. We now have 3 drilled water well serving our 3 lots, whereas we only had two during your stay. Another improvement in Moose Cabin since your stay is the addition of a new over-the-range microwave/convection oven that replaces the individual on-the-counter microwave and convection ovens. This provides more counter space and a much better quality oven.

Location

Car: recommended

Anchor Point, gateway to Kachemak Bay, is the most westerly point of the North American connected highway system. The location is the home of some 1930 residents and is located 200 miles from Anchorage, 62 miles from Soldotna and 15 miles from Homer, on the west side of the Alaska Kenai Peninsula. This area is world-famous for fishing, including halibut, salmon and steelhead trout. The scenery is fantastic with four active volcanoes visible across Cook Inlet and snow covered mountains and glaciers are seen across Kachemak Bay. Explorer Captain James Cook anchored here in 1778, while searching for a northwest passage. His ship the HMS Resolution lost a large Anchor here on May 28, 1778, and as a result, Captain Cook named the location “Anchor Point.” Visitors to Anchor Point enjoy birding, hiking, wildlife viewing and photography and nearby guided excursions including bear viewing, marine tours, kayaking, flightseeing, dog sledding, and ecotourism. The Anchor Point beach is a popular spot to see and film bald eagles and shorebirds.
