About Rosetta Klassen

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

Why Rosetta Klassen chose Bellingham

This property is one of a kind. Swimming and fishing at the door.

What makes this chalet unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the wonderful opportunity and beauty that was our Easter away from home (Australia and England). We all had a wonderful time relaxing at your magical chalet and soaking in everything it had to offer. We will always have the memory of BBQs and wine and beer on the deck. Thank you again!

Blissful relaxing stay with the family in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sharon for another perfect stay. The family always seems to get closer on these visits and although we certainly have all the comforts of home at the chalet both boys seem to want to lay back and simply talk and enjoy family company. Fall swims, big meals, twilight paddles, late night movies were very relaxing and rejuvenating.

Thank you for helping create another great family vacation.

Beautiful Setting, Quaint and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

This location is very convenient to everything we wanted to do in Bellingham. We loved the decks over looking the water and the serenity it offered. Be sure when you come all parties will be able to navigate the many steps.

Great Property and Location

  • 5 of 5

The Emerald Lake Chalet was just what our family was looking for our vacation. Very cozy and charming with decks overlooking the lake. Nice views of the lake and wildlife including bald eagles soaring by daily. Great trout fishing. Great location to many area attractions. Owners were very friendly, attentive and accessible at all times! We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We really appreciate it when people enjoy their stay and then take the time to tell others about our wonderful location. The fishermen and eagles go hand in hand, so it's a wonderful time at Emerald Lake right now. We are looking forward to having you stay in the future.

So lovely...So peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 5th or 6th time we have stayed at this lovely place. We were so impressed the first time that we don't want to stay anywhere else! It is so quiet, so peaceful and so beautiful. Lots of wildlife...woke to a family of ducks & geese taking their morning swim and 2 deer at the bottom of the stairs! Thanks to Rosetta, Sharon & all that keep us wanting to come back for more!!

Beautiful lakefront setting

  • 5 of 5

What a great lakefront home with a beautiful deck to watch the fishermen and wildlife. The amenities were great and the home very relaxing and loved sitting up in the trees with lots of windows. Very close to town and a great spot to relax.
