About Bonnie Zaremba & Misty Detjens

Detjens Deluxe Vacation Rentals, LLC has been in the vacation rental business for over 28 years. Our goal is to help guests find the perfect getaway.

Rustic Retreat for our family of 20

  • 5 of 5

We held our annual family getaway weekend at Grandview last year and we all enjoyed it so much that we came back again this year. The getaway weekend is a rare opportunity for us to take a break from the busy-ness of life, close the geographical distance between us, and reconnect with each other for a few days, so the choice of where to stay is made carefully. This beautiful house is in the perfect location with a gorgeous view AND has plenty of space for our group of 12 adults, eight children and one big, sweet dog.

We cooked and ate meals together, played games, enjoyed time in the hot tub, watched movies, or sometimes just sat and chatted in front of the fireplace. With downtown Wautoma just a short drive away, we had access to additional groceries when we needed them. We also went bowling one afternoon and ordered pizza from Christiano's for dinner that night.

Thank you for taking such good care of us and blessing us with the use of this wonderful family home away from home.

Great Log Home

  • 5 of 5

We held a family reunion at this beautiful log home. There were 11 of us. 5 children, 6 adults. The home was the perfect size for all of us. The kitchen was well appointed.

We enjoyed the lake and all the lake toys.

Gorgeous and spacious lodge on quiet lake. Great!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3-generational family of 21 spent an absolutely wonderful week at Grandview Log Lodge. The lodge itself was spacious and solidly built. The two complete sets of kitchen/dining/family rooms worked super, with the adults ending the day on the main level (visiting, playing cards, etc) and most of the kids in lower level (watching movies, etc). The bedroom walls were quiet such that the toddlers could sleep (daytime or nighttime) while "normal" activities went on nearby. The upper level game room also was used, especially by the grandkids.

We loved that there was plenty of space, both inside and outside the lodge, for the groups to be together or for various individuals to find some quiet time apart.

The quiet lake was great for our family, as we took advantage of the various watercraft (especially canoe, kayaks, paddleboat, and paddle board), the boat dock (for a bit of fishing with the kids), and the swimming raft (a favorite hangout for the young adults and older grandkids). We loved that there were only a few speedboats on the lake, and enjoyed the extended no-wake times of the day and evening.

The main level kitchen was wonderful as we "ate in" every night, with various family's taking a night to make (and clean up) the evening meal. The kitchen itself was well designed and we loved having the nearby pantry for storage and supplies. The open style of the kitchen area lended itself well to group interaction throughout the day and evening. On a side note, the Cuisinart knives worked so well that I bought a set when I returned home!

Our family spent most of the time right at the lodge, but we did take a day trip to Noah's Ark waterpark in Wisconsin Dells. We had taken our kids there during their younger years, and now our grandkids also got to enjoy the waterpark. We all had a fabulous time ... a great day trip to break up the weeklong stay.

All in all, we had a fantastic vacation that built and strengthened family relationships and created lots of memories to cherish in the future.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

As a group of 10 guys, we need space, lots of beds and close golf. This home has all that and more. Thank you to the owners for providing such a beautiful home to rent.

The kitchen lacks for nothing. Bathrooms are plentiful and well stocked. We were able to rent a pontoon boat for the whole time and enjoyed evening cruises.

The fire pit had amble wood. The outdoor decks had plenty of chairs and shade when you needed it.

We have stayed in a few VRBO's over the past but this one was the best. We already began discussions for a return next year.

Grandview Review

  • 5 of 5

Great property. Very open with plenty of space for individuals in large groups to find their own quiet space when needed. Close to town, but far enough away not to know it. Lake is perfect size to boat on, but also not big enough to have a ton of boat traffice. Property has a very well equipped kitchen and boathouse/beach. We will return.....
