Becker's Chalets

Jasper National Park, Alberta Canada
Just off the Icefields Parkway and beside the Athabasca River, these seasonal rustic cabins with mountain views are just minutes from the town of Jasper. This was our base for 5 days while we explored Jasper NP.

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!

Becker’s Chalets grew from 42 cabins to the 118 they have now. 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.

I remember that movie. I think it's one of the best Western movies. The wonderful actors and the environment in which the events took place immediately came to mind when you mentioned that movie.
