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.

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.
The 14+ acre property offers are a great sample of real rural Alaska and the full-scribed log buildings with their Alaskan decor 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.
Bear Paw Adventure offers uniquely Alaskan, first class lodging, located right on top of Alaska’s best fishing, exciting adventures and fantastic scenery.
This 14+ acre homestead property is near historic Anchor Point, Gateway to Kachemak Bay, on the west side of the Kenai Peninsula – a 4-1/2 hour drive from Anchorage.
The busy tourist centers of Kenai and Homer are minutes away for you to enjoy and then return to this quiet Alaskan environment. Moose, eagles, and ravens are frequently seen among the spruce trees, alders and wildflowers on this homestead that has been kept as wild and natural as possible.
This was our first visit to Alaska and we stayed at the Bear Paw cabins for the second half of our journey through southern Alaska. Our cabin was clean, spacious & relaxing and had plenty of amenities. We didn't use most of the cabin amenities (TV, stove, BBQ, etc.) but it was nice to have them in case we wanted to use them. It was in a very nice location as it felt secluded and surrounded by nature but just minutes from the main road and minutes from several towns and places to see in both directions. There was a big binder with instructions on how to use everything, plus information and several magazines marked with places to see and things to do in the area. We enjoyed sitting on the large front deck and enjoying the sunsets and watching the birds and nature. We would definitely stay there again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 6-night stay at the cabin, and can't say enough how great it was. The cabin was very comfortable, with a great layout, really nice kitchen, and nice furniture. The kitchen was especially nice, and had everything you could possibly need to make your own meals. Anchor Point was a nice location from which to enjoy the Kenai Peninsula. It's a nice community, much nicer than staying with the mass of people in Soldotna/Kenai. It was convenient for us for halibut fishing out of Anchor Point, and just 15-miles North of Homer.
Plus, the owner was spot-on, quick to respond to any questions, cabin in great shape upon arrival. Plus, he even went to the extra effort of shipping to us an item that was left behind.
Just what a log cabin should be! The cabin itself was very comfortable, clean and well stocked. The porch was our gathering place-even in the rain we sat under umbrellas to enjoy the calmness. The owner was so helpful and personable. Our family plans on visiting again of course.
We searched long and hard to find the type of cabin that had all the creature comforts of home. This place is wonderful and comfortable.Top notch applicances and very spacious. Great view,quiet and relaxing. The decor is fabulous. Just a wonderful time.Memories for a lifetime. Highly recommend to anyone. 1st class all the way. Owners are exrtremly nice and helpful.
We spent two and a half weeks on our Alaskan Vacation. I spent some quality time looking for places to stay throughout Alaska. This by far was the best place we stayed in. A modern log cabin, that has everything (and I mean everything) you need. Thank you and I'll be back!
This was by far the best accommodations we had throughout our 2 week visit through Alaska. There were 7 in our party and we all enjoyed the lodge tremendously. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone I knew of that were to visit this area. The owners were extremely helpful and the property was well taken care of. Our guys were fishing out of Homer, while we ladies were touring, wine tasting, & shopping. One Awesome experience !!!
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 steel head 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, flight seeing, dog sledding, and ecotourism. The Anchor Point beach is a popular spot to see and film bald eagles and shorebirds.
