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!

Beautiful, clean and comfortable. Truly a Home Away From Home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the scenery. To wake up to the wildlife around the chalet and the foliage on the Lake was breathe taking. The Chalet was clean and very comfortable. Centrally located to grocery store, restaurants and gas stations.

We will definitely be returning to spend time on the Lake and take in the Beauty the Chalet has to offer.

Thanks to Sharon and Natalie

Our Big Family Loved Our Getaway Here !!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Emerald lake as a family of 4adults & 3 little kids, and was overall absolutely taken back by our stay!

There was everything for everyone, toys play pens highchaira for the baby and toys games kayaks canoes paddle boats for us adults and younger kids! There was an abundance of fish to be caught while out near the lake as well as some of the friendliest & happiest neighbours!

We were tucked away nicely from neighbours but were still able to take a very short drive into town for all of our long weekend needs!

Thanks so much again for allowing us to stay in your beautiful property!

Beautiful lake! Great getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. House was comfortable and fairly well equipped. We enjoyed canoeing around the lake and sitting out on the deck just watching the ducks and geese on the lake. It was the perfect weekend escape.

Lovely Emerald Lake Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely trip in this great cabin. The chalet was well stocked and comfortable. My kids (6 & 3) really enjoyed taking the boats out and having fires in the pit and wood stove. Another bonus, Bellingham was a quick 10 mins away for supplies. We would definitely stay here again!

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.
