Becker’s Chalets in Jasper
Marilyn Monroe stayed at Becker’s Bungalows during the filming of “The River of No Return” during late July and early August, 1953. Baseball star Joe DiMaggio, her fiancée, visited her while she was there. She stayed in what is now room #33! Read the article, Hollywood in the Canadian Rockies.
From 1978 to 1989, the Venchiarutti Family worked at fixing and establishing the 42 cabins as they needed lots of attention.
From 1989 to 2000 the Venchiarutti family had a 10 year master plan to make Becker’s Chalets a first class resort of what it is today. This is when the large family duplex log buildings fully equipped with kitchens and stone wood burning fireplaces and the one bedroom 4-plex buildings were constructed. This enabled us to cater to all group sizes.
During this time period, Becker’s Bungalows changed its name to Becker’s Chalets – Becker’s Chalets grew from 42 cabins to the 118 we have today. The original 42 cabins are still available today, although updated to today’s standard, they still possess the original character and charm including their stone fireplaces.
Today, Becker’s Chalets is a first class family operation that is dedicated to providing you with a clean, comfortable, relaxing and positive Rocky Mountain experience. Located along the Athabasca River, with a wooded setting and spectacular mountainous views, Becker’s Chalets has the ideal location. Only 5km from the hustle and bustle of the Jasper town site, but yet close enough to walk, bike or a 5 minute drive.
Becker’s Chalets is a seasonal resort, open from May to October. We have a variety of cabins, chalets and units available to suit your every need – ranging from one bedroom to four bedroom accommodations.
Picture yourself, sitting on one of our many colorful lawn chairs, hearing the Athabasca River, facing Mt. Kerkestlin and Mt. Hardisty after enjoying a gourmet meal in our restaurant! Rest and Relaxation at its peak is what comes to mind.

We stayed in a cottage at the front of the resort with a view of the river. We found the cabin to be very quiet, with very comfortable beds. We ate in the restaurant both nights of our stay and had wonderful food each night. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds are lovely and provide a nice opportunity for a morning walk or a walk after dinner. We would definitely recommend the hotel and would certainly return.
I was pleasantly surprised as it was very reasonable and I really couldn’t have been happier with our experience there. The check in staff were friendly and awesome…the cabins were modern, super clean and very well decorated. The service staff were always on hand and brought us everything we needed. And the rest was just pure Jasper with all the wonder and beauty. It was an amazing trip and we loved this place.
Not only is Becker’s Chalets brilliantly located near the Athabasca river, the lodges themselves are super pretty as well. Everything is clean, it’s cozy, and all the amenities required for making food on your own are available. We loved our stay and will DEFINITELY recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Jasper. All the members of the staff are super friendly as well.
