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!

Bonnie Zaremba & Misty Detjens purchased this cottage in 2014

The house had a great location right on the lake and across from a small peninsula.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed watching all of the wildlife in the area. Watched sandhill cranes protecting their nest on the peninsula. The house was comfortable however from the pictures we did think it was going to be a bit bigger. It had a lot of outdoor amenities. Spent a lot of our time on the upper deck and down by the lake . Would recommend to others.

Fantastic Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a great getaway place for a family. This is my second visit here and it doesn't disappoint. I bring my 2 Teen boys here to get away from the city and to spend time relaxing by the fire or in the hot tub. This home has 2 floors with 2 fireplaces that gave us plenty of space to be together or to relax on our own. For the Teens it has cable, movies and WIFI which they claim they cannot live without WIFI - yet somehow they manage. I will definitely be returning - it is now our spring break destination year after year....

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!!
