                                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.

                                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!

                                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!

                                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!

                                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.

                                This was our home base for a week in the Bellingham area. The six of us felt very comfortable here. It was clean and just as described. Thank you so much for a great place to stay. We highly recommend it to others who are looking for a special place to stay.

                                Thank you so much for letting us know about Donovan Park. Our friends just bought a house on Britton Rd. We all got to explore this fun gem. It is so refreshing to have such a thoughtful "landlord". We have been using the baby gate and playpen. It has come in handy. We are loving the view and enjoying the water. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

                                We had a really great time at the chalet. The views of the lake were wonderful. Despite the rain we took the kayaks our onto the lake and had a great time. The cabin is very cozy and well set up. Descriptions and photos were accurate. Property was clean and well maintained. Host was helpful with directions. They even left us banana bread! (which was delicious) We would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice weekend on the lake.

                                Excellent accommodation. Comfortable beds and great amenities. Location to Mt Baker made it ideal for skiing. Owner was excellent to deal with and very responsive. Very quiet at night. Would not hesitate to recommend or return. A well run rental.

                                We picked up our WWU freshman and her friend and went to the Emerald Lake Chateau for a Thanksgiving getaway. The weather was cold and rainy, but the house was clean and warm and cozy. We cooked dinner and had a lovely thanksgiving; watched movies and had a little clearing in the weather so we could take out the kayaks. Went into town to see a movie one day, and all in all, had a really nice time. I don't think I've ever rented such a clean house!

                              About the owner: 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.

                              Why the Owner Chose Bellingham:
                              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.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                              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.
