My family and I rented equipment for the Bowron canoe Circuit and spent a couple of nights at Becker's Lodge. We found the accommodations clean but overpriced. There was no hand soap provided in the public restrooms. The equipment was overall in good shape, but when I arrived to pick up the equipment there were additional hidden charges after I'd prepaid months in advance. Also, when I originally booked the accommodations and rentals the women on the phone was very rude when I inquired about the different types of kayaks they offered. Her reply, “I don’t know just read the website.”
The main issue we had with Becker’s Lodge was the rudeness of Lothar Vollmer the owner. I don’t care if other review responses claim he’s “quirky” or has a dry sense of humor. He is out right rude. Lothar made rude comments about our vehicle. When returning equipment I informed Lothar of an issue with one of the paddles and his reply, “you obviously did something wrong.” He has no tact and has no business dealing with people. Lothar must realize people spend a lot of money and travel great distances to come to Becker’s Lodge only to be treated with rude discourteous service. I will never do business with Becker’s Lodge again and I encourage others to steer clear as well.
