John Ogle purchased this Cabin in 1955
Why John Ogle chose Anchor Point
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 Cabin unique
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.

Property was acceptable although showing a bit of wear. Would be great for a stag group of four since there were only single beds.
Thank you for staying with us in the Moose Cabin. This summer, just prior to this stay, our maintenance crew was able grind and sand the logs on the outside of the building, add new chinking at the log joints and then apply a fresh coat of log stain plus UV protection. That job, plus a new BBQ deck plank floor and handrails gave the outside of Moose Cabin a fresh, new-building look. See photos of the "Moose Cabin BBQ Deck" posted June 14 on our Facebook page. We plan to put a new floor covering (vinyl and carpet) on the inside of the building this fall and with that the Moose Cabin will be better than new. Moose Cabin is a favorite of many of our guests (singles and couples) because of the comfort, privacy and unique Alaskan atmosphere it offers.
Perfect stay for my wife and I
We chose this rental at the last minute due to an issue at another rental home and could not have been happier with our decision. The rental is very clean and cozy and in a great location. Close drive to Homer but what we really enjoyed was the beach area at Anchor Point. Tons of bald eagles and amazing views. Would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Alaska.
Thank you for the comments and we are very happy you decided to stay with us in the Moose Cabin. We look forward to your next visit.
It was only a one-night stay but the Moose Cabin was just perfect - exceptionally clean, quiet, comfortable, and all amenities as promised. The cabin definitely exceeded our expectations. It's obvious the owner takes great pride in this vacation rental based on the well maintained condition of the property. Thanks for a great stay! We would not hesitate to book again and look forward to a future stay!
Thank you for staying with us at Bear Paw Adventure. I'm happy that you enjoyed your the Moose Cabin and we look forward to your next visit.
We did a family weekend getaway with my daughter visiting from Texas. It was great. The accommodations were clean, neat and well kept. We loved the warmth of the heater after a chilly day on the water. The perfect stay for an after fishing day!
It is always great to have visitors from Texas. Thank you for the comments.
Bear Paw Adventure - Moose cabin
This was a great vacation cabin. We couldn't have been more pleased with the accomodations and friendly service. We had a blast and caught our limits of Silver Salmon and Halibut.
Thank you so much for staying in the Moose Cabin and we are happy that you had great fishing in the area.
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.
