Deluxe Vacation Rentals in Central Wisconsin
Gorgeous and spacious lodge on quiet lake. Great!
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.

We had an absolutely wonderful 5-star vacation
An up-front concern was the lack of a beach area for our three toddlers. However the shallow sandy bottom area worked wonderfully for them (and for their parents). Thanks for providing such a wonderful and well maintained vacation home. The "Lake House" will continue to be an integral part of our family's history and memories.

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.

A truly wonderful place to stay
The Grandview is a beautiful home with every amenity needed. We have stayed there on multiple occasions and are always impressed with its charm and accommodations.

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.....

Relaxing well appointed house
Stayed here with with 4 different families and it was a great size. The house was well stocked and furniture was comfortable. They had everything we needed. We used the air mattresses and cots and they were fine. They had extra sheets and blankets easy to find and ready to use. We have stayed at many vacation rentals and by far was thought out better than any vacation rental we have stayed at. We all loved the kayaks ,canoes and paddle boats. The house is lovely and they were easy to deal with. Great vacation and very friendly town.

Cabin is a must stay getaway!
The pictures do not justify how nice the cabin is. The hot tub on the deck was a hit. The views were great. The golf course was less than 5 minutes away. Great trip!!

Family get together
All the amenities were great. Couldn't think of anything better that they could have had at the cabin. We had a great time playing games and caught lots of fish everyday. Wonderful meals together at the large table.

Truly a Rare Find
Totally loved our stay! The blizzard kept us housebound, but the lodge was clean, and spacious. The beds were comfortable, and the decor was amazing. The amenities kept everyone busy. Best place in the world to be snowed in for the weekend. Beyond beautiful! Truly a rare find! The management was also very accommodating, patient, and caring.

Rustic Retreat for our family of 20
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.

The house was perfect for all of us. We had plenty of room for the 16 of us. We were able to go for a walk on the lake and go to the ski hill, some skied and the other tubed. We had coffee cups that held a cup of coffee, no small cups for our bunch. Beds were comfortable. Beautiful log house. It was all we could need. We want to stay there again. Kids want to do it over Christmas! Summer would be great as water sports are one thing we enjoy! Thanks for sharing the house with us!

Misty & Bonnie are amazing at responding back quickly
The cabin was beautiful and more than I had expected from the pictures. I would strongly recommend Grandview cabin!
This place was amazing!
This place was amazing and a wonderful time. We are definately coming back. We will be back.

Amazing house and lake!
Wow! This house and property are perfect. The pictures do not do it justice. It is bigger and more open than it looks like. We had 17 people there for a few days and it had everything we needed. Everyone had nice bedrooms with comfortable beds and plenty of storage. The basement has a fully stocked kitchen, master bedroom, sauna, and another bedroom. It was a nice area to spend time while others played games and watched movies upstairs. The lake is beautiful and there were several boats, kayaks, canoes, and a SUP that we could use. All directions are easily accessible and clear. Bonnie and Misty were super helpful and responsive the entire time before and during our stay. We would love to stay here again if we are in the area. Thanks for a memorable weekend.

Wow explains this home
Great home for our group of 12. Each year for last 15 years we have gotten together. This by far the best home we have stayed in. Lots of space to chill out. Very well appointed.
We have already booked for next year!
/s/ Bob W.
Organized a 4-day weekend retreat for my friends and had a simply fantastic time! Plenty of space, luxurious accommodations and the serenity, beauty and privacy of the northern Wisconsin woods greet visitors to this property. Misty and Bonnie were very pleasant to work with and saw to all our needs. The spacious interior never made any of us feel cramped and the two kitchens helped with our meal planning. The lodge's location afford easy access to nearby restaurants and supplies for meal planning in Wautoma. The property came complete with many useful kitchen devices, dishes, plates that made meal prep a breeze. I would definitely recommend this outstanding vacation rental!

Annual Family Fall Getaway
We have stayed in this house before and love it! We had several families stay in the house and had perfect weather to enjoy the lake and boats....90 degrees on the 2nd day of fall! We are sad it's booked for next year, but will find another of Detjens Deluxe Vacation Rental’s houses to rent!
/s/ Michele A.
Loved this place! Seven bedrooms for our extended family, stocked with everything we needed and a great hot tub. The kids enjoyed boats and paddle boards all day. Management was easy to reach, friendly and helpful. Very NICE!

This place was amazing and far exceeded our expectations!
The lake was the perfect size- big enough to provide stunning views and days of fun in and on the water, yet small enough to feel very private with no worries about getting lost while canoeing or boating. The lodge itself is unbelievably beautiful with every imaginable amenity.....Huge spaces with a new discovery of fun areas to explore and entertain around every corner. We spent many hours of relaxation playing pool, soaking in the gorgeous Lakeview while in the outdoor jacuzzi on the upper deck, and enjoying a novel from the expansive collection of books while swaying in the generous comfy hammock on the shaded lower deck! Great memories around the outdoor fire pit and cooking in the gourmet kitchen. Attention to every detail and tender loving care of this property was evident everywhere in this beautiful,clean,welcoming lodge. Thank you, Bonnie and Misty, for a vacation we will always remember--it was very hard to leave this haven of peace!
Beautiful house, peaceful lake
Beautiful house, well-maintained, peaceful swimmable lake, plenty of fun items for water activities. Big kitchen and great room for large family meals, nice basement and 2nd floor recreation areas. We loved this house.
/s/ Dan W.
Wow, it was sooo beautiful!
We went in off season which gave us a quiet picturesque setting. The house was gorgeous with enough room for 15 ladies to have their own space yet be part of a group. We will definitely be coming back!

Pictures do not do justice!!
The pictures on this site do not give this lodge the justice it deserves! The lodge is gorgeous and spotless. For our annual reunion, we were looking for a lodge that would comfortably sleep our growing families. This was the perfect place for us. The staff is helpful and friendly which is an added bonus. Thank you for everything! I can't wait to come back next year!

We couldn't have been happier with our stay here. Very comfortably fit 20 guys for an ice fishing trip and the accommodations are even better than the pictures suggest. Can't recommend highly enough!
/s/ Shaun D.
Our group had a wonderful time as usual everything was perfect and we can't wait until we can stay again!!

Best Birthday ever!
Thank you once again for the opportunity to have rented and stayed at your spectacular home! My entire family had an amazing time, and my Mom will never forget this week celebrating her birthday. She has already called it the best birthday she has ever had.
Well maintained, provisioned, and beautifully decorated
This cabin really had everything needed for a delightful stay - wide variety of kitchen supplies for almost any cooking, ample thick towels in the bathrooms, board games, pool table / game room, large clean hot tub. All the bedrooms were nice sizes with plentiful closet space. The house was decorated lovely to feel like a home (including a 10' Christmas tree!), and very well maintained, with attention to detail. Our extended family of 22 has stayed at a number of such places and this was a clear 5 star!
Perfect for a large group
The lodge is very impressive. It is well taken care of and clean. It proved to be a perfect mix of openness and privacy for our family holiday reunion. The living room and main floor kitchen area were perfect for our large group to socialize. It was vast yet inviting. There was also a nice open space w/ kitchen in the lower level for socializing. The bedrooms were appropriately spaced out for privacy in the event someone needed to get away from the group for some quiet time. I did not hear a single negative comment about the lodge from any of my family members. Everyone gushed about the quality/comfort of the lodge and the absolutely beautiful view overlooking the lake. If you need a place for a large group, you will not regret staying here.
