About Bonnie Zaremba & Misty Detjens

Detjens Deluxe Vacation Rentals, LLC has been in the vacation rental business for over 26 years. Our goal is to help guests find the perfect getaway. Whether your getaway is a few days or a week, time away from it all is so important and making lasting memories is what life is all about. We have created deluxe getaways with all the comforts of home and even more. We go to great lengths to provide quality properties that we are proud to say we manage.

The Detjens purchased their first lake home over 26 years ago in the Wautoma area because it was not too far, but far enough from home. Wautoma, being just 2 hours north of Milwaukee, 1 1/2 hours north of Madison, and 1 hour west of the Fox Valley, it is a perfect distance for a weekend stay. Waushara County is an amazing county located in central Wisconsin. This small county boasts of 96 lakes and miles and miles of trout streams and rivers. Loaded with rolling hills, pine forests and wildlife, we call it, “The gateway to the north" , It feels like you are in beautiful, upper Wisconsin without the drive!

Very nice & comfy cabin, lots of amenities, perfect for a small group.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time enjoying our late winter get-away with our family & friends. The cabin was perfect for a small group (we had nine total) and had all the amenities you could ask for. We loved the indoor fireplaces, outdoor grilling space, hot tub, and fire pit. The cards & board games supplied by the owner were a nice surprise as well! Good times had by all!

Winter Ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great, cozy place to stay while skiing at Nordic Mountain! Comfortable enough to accommodate 12 of us and our dog. Loved the fireplace, the hot tub, the views of the frozen lake in the snow. The basement pullout mattress, however, is not in great shape--but an inflatable mattress was provided, so we didn't need to sleep on the pile of crumbling springs.

Overall we loved it!!

Beat my expectation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and was happy that it was in a neighborhood. Slowly my guest arrived they were amazed of the beauty of the place and the surrounding. All they had to do was put the clothes away. The house had everything you needed and things you forgot also. The hot tub was amazing after a day of snowboarding. At first people were scared of using an outside hot tub in the winter, but once they got in they said it was the best thing ever. Many people commented they want to come back during the summer to get to see more of the amenities; like the boats.

This was what the group needed. Everyone had their space and it meet their needs. This is perfect place to get a way relax and recharge.

Well kept, spacious home on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in November for "Deer Camp" for all of us non hunters that just wanted to get away and enjoy the beauty of a cabin on the lake, watching college football, playing cards, and making chili. Thanks for sharing your space with us!

Very relaxing, quiet getaway for our family

  • 5 of 5

The house is nicely furnished with everything we needed. Location was peaceful. Amenities were great. Hot tub not working but was being repaired unfortunately our stay was too brief to be able to enjoy it.

Family was able to enjoy some time together laughing and catching up. Nice lake. Loved putt- putting around the lake and relaxing, laughing, talking. Even in the rain one evening.
