    Spacious & relaxing with plenty of amenities

    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.

    AWESOME

    WE HAD THE GREAT FORTUNE TO RENT 3 CABINS IN JULY FOR AN EXTENDED FAMILY VACATION. THE CABINS ARE JUST BEAUTIFUL, COZY, WELL STOCKED, AND EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN! FAMILY FROM TEXAS, OHIO, SC, PA, AND ALASKA ALL RAVED ABOUT OUR CHOICE OF ACCOMODATIONS. IT IS SO CLOSE TO HOMER AND THERE IS PLENTY TO DO ON THE PROPERTY. YOUNG ADULTS TOOK ADVANTAGE OF VOLLEYBALL AND NIGHT TIME CAMPFIRES BY THE CABINS. GRILLING OUR FISH AND HAVING A COCKTAIL KEPT EVERYONE HAPPY. MY FAMILY HAS STAYED THERE BEFORE AND HOPE TO RETURN MANY TIMES IN THE FUTURE. MAKE SURE YOU DO A WINE TASTING AT THE LOCAL WINERY. THE OWNER IS ON PROPERTY AND AVAILABLE 24/7- WHAT A BONUS. I WOULD RECOMMEND ALL OF THESE CABINS TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR LODGING IN THE HOMER AREA!

    Highly recommended Anchor Point Alaska lodging

    After our Alaskian cruise we wanted to experience the Kenai Pennisula together with a fishing charter for those famed Alaskan halibut catches.Anchor Point is the halibut capital of Alaska so we decided to stay there and found Bear Paw and choose the Bear Den House for our group of 3 adults and 2 small children.The rates were more reasonable than the Homer area and its only a 20 min drive to the Homer Spit.Way more relaxing in Anchor Point than all the tourists around Homer.The Bear Den was very easy to find off the main highway.John the owner lives right next door and he was very accomodating for infomation about the area.He let me use his clamming gear and recommended where to clam.Moose would visit the back yard most every morning as well as seeing many moose on the way to and from Homer. Bear Den has it all...well stocked pantry in case you forgot some spices,flour,coffee,etc.Every room was so spacious,washer and dryer,gas barbecue,horseshoe pit and volleyball sand court.It pretty much has it all for such an out of way place.We felt very safe which was very important traveling with our 2 grandchildren. Bottom line is that I will definitely chose one of Johns' homes if we return to the area.

    Nice play to stay and close to Homer

    This is a hand made log cabin that has plenty of room for everyone. The kids appreciated the fact that they had their own beds in the Bear Den. They have a great backyard. We took advantage of the great washer/dryer set. This is a big bonus as most rentals do not have this. When you get rained on for several days you run out of dry clothing. This rental is maybe a 15-20 minute drive from Homer. We would stay here again!

    Moose Cabin

    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.

    Alaskan Experience

    Well outfitted with rustic charm. Great base for Cook Inlet Fishing and Peninsula tourism. Very comfortable with a surprisingly well equipped kitchen. Will definitely stay again.

    Perfect stay at Wise Old Hunter Lodge!

    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!

    Log cabin lots of charm and warmth

    What a wonderful place to stay! Lots of room for a large group or seclusion for a romantic getaway. Close to Homer and the Kenai Peninsula. The deck and covered BBQ were great gathering places. The owner was very accommodating even when we had to cancel and re-schedule. Could not wait to show pictures to friends of the wonderful place we found at the Wise Old Hunter.

    Old Wise Hunter lodge

    We were lucky to find this amazing place to rent for the week in July 2016. The cabin was just perfect! We had never been to Alaska and planned the whole trip on our own so that we were able to do what we wanted. We went to Homer and went out fishing with Falcon Charters Captain Tony and had a blast. We did meet John Ogle and his wife that were both very nice! Alaska is a trip of a lifetime and so blessed our trip was perfect! Thank you John! Hope to be back to see you again soon!
