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!

relaxing anniversary

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent 5 relaxing days at the Emerald Lake home. We stayed in the top floor rental that had a ground floor and a loft. Very nice, well appointed and comfortable unit. Lots of upper and lower deck space that overlooks the lake. We opted to hunker in as it poured the entire stay. Not to worry though as we were stocked with books, puzzles and a few games. Lots of nice gluten free eating options nearby that my wife really appreciated. Large cinema complex nearby to catch a few movies. Nice to slow the pace and reconnect with my lovely wife. Will come back for another stay in the spring and or fall to do some fly fishing and enjoy being outdoors more of the time. Bill and Connie

Clean and private

  • 4 of 5

The chalet is private with beautiful views. The home is very clean, and the bedding comfortable. The kitchen could use newer pans, but overall the home is well appointed.

Beautiful cozy home in a relaxing location

My boyfriend and I had so much fun skiing/snowboarding at Mt Baker this weekend and it was so nice to be able to relax and rest at this cozy place at the end of the day. We both slept so well and had everything we needed. Thankyou so much for having us!

Cozy Holiday Week

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this VRBO for family and friends. It is well--maintained, well-furnished, and clean. We spent Thanksgiving here with family from four states. The description and photos are accurate. We will be return renters, and look forward to using the lake in the summer. We did take the kayak and paddleboat out at dusk, and that is lovely.

The steps leading upstairs are many, and should be take into consideration if needs be.

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.
