About Darrell Deck

Hi, I've always wanted a cabin on a lake and now we have one that we would like to share. I work in IT which is why you will see that the cabin is electronically enabled with some extensive networking involved for the stereo, TV, WiFi, and security system. We much enjoy the work that comes with the cabin in keeping the property clean and up to date. Unfortunately Heidi cannot work from home but since I can work from home I was living at the cabin about 4 days a week, working from home here via the internet and now want to share it with others to enjoy the peaceful tranquil environment here at Island Lake Gresham Wisconsin.

Darrell Deck purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Darrell Deck chose Gresham

The cabin (4 season) is in a very small community of a couple dozen or so other cabins with some being full time dwellings and others, summer vacation homes as well as a private resort on the lake called Captain's Cove that is very popular with campers who lease their spot yearly. The cabin, with 100 feet of water frontage, its own private beach, is on a private 40 acre lake that is only half developed and the other half will never be developed as it is DNR land. The cabin is on a dead end road that you will never see or hear any traffic and the lake will be primarily yours alone. As for boat traffic, you might see up to 3 boats on the lake at the same time.

What makes this cabin unique

Lake front beach with fire pit, dock, fishing kayaks, 14 foot fishing boat with electric motor, paddle boat and a number of inflatables. No need to worry about motor boats, ski boats, or jet skis. Your own private beach or go over to Captain's Cove beach. Two casinos within 15 minute drive, excellent 18 hole golf course 5 minute drive away and restaurants and bars near by too. Two other much larger lakes that allow gas motors 6 miles away (Gresham WI) with public boat launches.

Make it a Green Bay Packer weekend in the fall and stay in this cabin for the weekend. Lambeau Field Green Bay is only 50 minutes to the east of the cabin on a 4 lane divided hwy (US 29).

Cozy cabin with all amenities on Island Lake

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect! All 3 bedrooms had comfortable beds. And a spacious sunroom with beautiful views added to the living space. Slept 6 adults perfectly with room to spare. The sunsets were beautiful which we enjoyed by the fire pit by the lake. The owner Darrell is very organized & easy to work with! He supplied all the basic items plus lots of extras you could use! His property is well maintained & very clean. We used the paddle boat & the floats and went to Captains Cove across the lake for a beach & sunbathing. It was perfect because we could paddle/drive back to the peace & tranquility of our cabin when we were done! We fished off the dock and even caught our first Northern pikes! We also enjoyed the game room in the lower level, nice variety of games! Highly recommend this place for not only the cabin but for how easy the owner was to work with!

It was a really quiet and relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was nice and clean, very well equipped and the central heat/AC was a great thing to have in this semi-spring (we had within the same week temperatures of 43 degrees and of 72.....so very helpful).

Everything worked fine, there were no surprises, and the lake was mostly for ourselves (there was no one else but us most of the time). The only thing that we underestimated is the distance between the beach/firepit and the house, if you had to carry heavy stuff like the trolling motor's battery or if once relaxed sitting there with your bottle of wine and two glasses....you realized you forgot the corkscrew...walking uphill was most times defined by rock, paper , scissors.

Other than that, it was all great!!

Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

This property is one of the best places we've ever stayed in! It has everything you could think of including a pool table, an arcade machine, and lots of games. The house is very clean, well looked after, very cozy, and also the most technologically advanced vacation house we've ever stayed at. I sure appreciated a nice wifi connection and solid tmobile signal. The surrounding nature is gorgeous! We arrived when the lake was still frozen and were lucky to watch all the ice melt over the 2-day course. The lake water was crystal clear, a lake I would definitely swim in! Owner, Darrell, was super reachable. Overall, highly recommend this property to anyone looking to "get away from it all".

Great Place and Owner!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed this past week for five nights. The place is clean, and loaded with all kinds of great things. The style, feel and layout of the place - inside and out - is GREAT. The owner Darrell is VERY responsive and easy to work with. Hats off to him as he took really good care of us. There was heavy snow accumulation, so although we were not able to enjoy the outdoors this trip - the beach, lake, fishing, etc - theres plenty to do relaxing and having a good time inside the cabin. From the decked out "game room" in the basement (pinball machine a blast, the pool table is nice! for those we can appreciate that), to all the audio options throughout to play music and watch movies, to the sun room overlooking the lake, the pellet stove, etc.. the place is REALLY cool. The beds were comfortable, we used the washer and dryer a handful of times. One day we went to Docs Harley Davidson Dealer in Bonduel - REALLY cool place, then Northstar Casino to play blackjack. We ate breakfast the first morning at Farm Inn in Shawano - EXCELLENT. Theres a gas station mart in downtown Gresham with just about anything you need. We did go full-on grocery shopping at Walmart that first morning after breakfast in Shawano. We ate dinner one day at Bad Habit there in downtown Gresham - good food, VERY cool / friendly owners. What else can I say? - except we reserved another five night trip in September, and look forward to enjoying the outdoors - the deck, the beach, the lake, fishing, Captains Cove across the lake, etc!

Well worth renting!! Relaxing from beginning to end!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing rental. The screened in sunroom was our favorite. It allows you to enjoy everything about the outdoors minus the elements and the bugs.

The couch and beds are very comfy. There is plenty of room for a large family with three bedrooms (one of which had a trundle bed).

The view of the lake is awesome!! We arrived the weekend of full foliage peak for the fall's changing leaves. The colors were very vibrant.

The cabin has a good sized bathroom with a standing/seating area in the shower. The kitchen is full of modern appliances, with everything needed to prepare a full three course meal.

The game room had a fully functional free pinball machine! We also enjoyed several games of Scrabble in the sunroom. There was an electronic dart board, jumbo Jenga pieces and a deck of cards available in the game room which we did not use.

There are two sets of sliding glass doors that lead outdoors, with ample seating for a large crowd on the deck and patio.

There is a stereo system with speakers throughout the cabin along with a radio and televisions for renting movies and shows.

The owner had plenty of helpful and useful information about how to use everything from the heating/cooling system, the BBQ and Smoker, where the water toys, paddle boat and life jackets were located, how to use the stereo system and television, how to use and clean the cast iron pans (there was also a complete set of nonstick pans) and local restaurants and businesses.

Peace and quiet are in abundance here. Well worth renting!!!
