I'm passionate in what I'm doing with the Emerald Lake Chalet.

When I read guest comments that they have enjoyed their stay and want to come back,

that's very rewarding.

Rosetta Klassen purchased this chalet in 1979

This property is one of a kind. Swimming and fishing at the door. A great place for children of all ages. There's a cabin for the children to do their own thing, but still close to family.

My family has owned property on Emerald Lake since 1960. It's been a great retreat for my six children and grandchildren as well as our friends. Bellingham is minutes away where many activities, shopping and gourmet restaurants add to the wonderful lake setting apart from city life.

Lovely weekend

I celebrated my birthday here with some friends. It was lovely, VERY quiet and I enjoyed the early morning paddles on the brilliant lake. For us Canadians it was the perfect combination of shopping and paddling! The no pet policy will disallow me from using the house again but this trip was great.

Owner's Response: I'm glad that you enjoyed the chalet with your friends, and that Steven was there to help with the kayaks. Maybe you'll be able to come on your own with your friends and enjoy the place again.

BEST AND MOST BEAUTIFUL VACATION HOME IN BELLINGHAM-PERFECT FOR LARGE FAMILY-INCREDIBLE LAKE

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
This was one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed in Bellingham, Washington. Right next to the Emerald Lake, all of the windows in the front of the chalet had a breathtaking view of the lake. You just walk down the steps, and presto, there is the dock with the kayaks and canoe. Even though it is only a 10 minute drive to Bellingham, you feel as if you are in your own private paradise! It is much more beautiful than even these photos, show, and is situated in an area, that gives you privacy and beauty and peace every second of the day!!! The furnishings, appliances, everything is top of the line in quality, and the owner Rosetta even gave us a beautiful pie when we first arrived!!! The place was very clean, very well maintained, and all supplies were provided! You could literally sit outside on the deck, listening to the birds, and watching the lake from above! It was perfect! You don't want to leave the home; it is so lovely! Rosetta thoughtfully provided two kayaks and a canoe with the rental; so my family and I rowed around the lake, and had a fantastic time! There was even a lovely outdoor deck hammock, (which my girls loved), and patio with an umbrella overhead and chairs for a barbecue. My mother and father, who are both in their 70s, loved it immensely, and enjoyed our family barbeque during our stay there. We had blue skys and lovely warm weather during our stay! I would recommend this vacation home to anyone who loves beauty, peace, luxury and a great time!

The boats were so much fun!

Dear Rosetta,
We had such a lovely stay at the lake chalet-- thank you so much for your hospitality and the obvious thoughtfulness that went into creating such an amazing vacation home.
We wanted to let you know that the planter on the landing fell over and the pot broke, we're not quite sure how-- we cleaned up the dirt, left the pieces on the landing, and put the salvageable flowers in the birdbath and watered them this morning on our way out. We really lived!
Thank you again for making such a wonderful retreat possible-- the boats were so much fun and it was magical to be at a lake without motorboats!
Hope you're well & thank you again!

Wonderful getaway

We had been looking forward to our stay for months, and can happily say we were totally thrilled with the house and the surroundings. Everything is just as pictured. The charming house lacks for nothing, and the four of us were very comfortable. My kids (10 & 14) had a fabulous time leaping off the dock into the lake, and we all enjoyed kayaking. We've been home for a few days, and my daughter already wants to go back, which I am sure we will!

The Most Stress-Free Vacation

  • Submitted: Jul 15, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
Rosetta -- We had an amazing time at your home. Thank you so much for thinking through so many details (i.e. -- life jackets, pool noodles, etc.). It was the most stress-free vacation our family has had. We didn't want to leave!!!!

I did break a plastic ice-cream scoop, when scooping ice-cream, but replaced it with a metal ice-cream scoop!

The weather was great. The house was perfect. Thank you for everything.
