Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: John Ogle, 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. John Ogle, Jr will be your host when you stay in one of the unique log buildings at Anchor Point. 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 enjoys 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.

Why the Owner Chose Anchor Point, AK, USA:
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 those 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. 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 Unique Benefits at this House:
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 to their own private Alaska at Bear Paw Adventure. For those who come to Alaska to enjoy nature, this is the place to stay.
