This cabin was wonderful! Lots of living room space throughout and a fully stocked kitchen. The views were incredible and the hot tub was great. We would come back in a heartbeat!
Very clean upon arrival and super easy departure instructions. Would definitely stay here again. Beautiful property.
Great location, very comfortable and spacious. The hot tub was a bonus!
This is an excellent spot for family gatherings. We spent lots of time down by the fire pit, in the hot tub, and we even took a walk around the entire lake. We enjoyed sitting by the fireplace and the extra holiday touches were great. We would love to visit again next holiday season!!
Perfect for Thanksgiving
What a perfect place for our family for Thanksgiving weekend! The kitchen is well very stocked (thanks Bonnie for checking on the roaster) even for cooking Thanksgiving dinner. The house is spacious, comfortable and immaculately clean. The hot tub was a hit with everyone and the fire pit was such a treat as the weather was fall-like and we could be outside a lot. We even got to take turns using the peddle boat We would stay again in a heartbeat! Bonnie was a joy to communicate with - always helpful and prompt in her emails. We can’t wait to return.
Beautiful house! Plenty of space, we loved having 4 bathrooms! Bedrooms were all great sizes. We really enjoyed using the hot tub. Clean and comfortable! Was really relaxing! We had a great time and hope to go back in the future!
The home was gorgeous and very clean. Would love to come back in the summer and swim in the lake.
Beautiful home on the lake! All who stayed agreed that we would love to come visit in the summer.
Great place. A few very minor questions that I had were promptly answered and dealt with by the managers. A+ service with an A property!
The house was on a gorgeous lake!
It came fully stocked with everything we could need and we would stay here again.
Loved the house
Loved the house pictures are accurate, hot tub underneath the deck, everything was great, will be staying here again.
Seamless communication and perfect space! Great stay.
We had a fantastic weekend at this property with our group. Very close to good skiing, a gorgeous lake and plenty of space! We absolutely recommend this place!
Great house, great location, lovely views.
I stayed at this rental with a full house and 4 families for a long weekend. Could not have been a more memorable or comfortable stay for adults and kids alike!
Working with Misty and Bonnie was easy and great! But, that is just a cherry on top of this amazing property! It was a cold October weekend (sleet and wind), so we didn’t get to enjoy the lake other than the view. But, the house was perfect for the 3 families that stayed there. The hot tub was great after hiking and mountain biking that we did! The kitchen had everything we needed/wanted. We are already discussing renting this property again, in the summer so we have a better chance of enjoying the beautiful lake!
The whole experience was fabulous
Very accommodating. Beautiful scenery and amazing hot tub. We used this place to host our wedding and it was perfect. Bonnie was a great help in making this wedding perfect by providing great recommendations to us. I highly recomend coming here and both my husband and I will hopefully be coming back here again.
This property is great
Very quiet. View of the lake from the deck was perfect. The house is very clean, comfortable & relaxing.

Perfect for our group
Pictures does not do the house justice! The house was perfect for our group of 15. The spacious house was cozy and has a beautiful view in the backyard. Highly recommend!
Our extended family from Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota met up at Sandy Shores for a memorable three-day stay. One cousin arrived first and called us to say that the home exceeded all expectations. He was right! Even though there were 18 of us, we were able to spread out throughout the house and enjoy all the amenities, including the lakefront, the beach, the fire pit, the hot tub, the deck, and the whole house. Plus, lots of us went on daily walks around the beautiful lake and we even ventured out one evening for ice cream just seven miles away. A wonderful highlight of our summer! Highly recommend.

Perfect for our family
This house was perfect for our family vacation. The kids loved the sandy beach, swimming and fishing. The adults loved swimming in the clean, clear lake and using the boats and hot tub. Everything we needed for a wonderful long weekend was right there. The house was large for everyone to have their space. We would love to return!!!!!

The best time!
My son, youngest in our family wanted a trip for graduating high school instead of a party and now I’m wishing we would’ve done this for all the kids. Everyone had the best time!! There was enough fun things to do that no one complained about being board or wanting to go anywhere to have fun. Grandkids played in the lake or sun bathed while older kids kayaked or hung out by the outdoor fire pit. Boys got a lot of fishing in while my husband and I just enjoyed the quiet. Everything lived up to expectations and needless to say no one wanted it to be over! Thank you for an awesome experience, will definitely go this route again!!
/s/ Denise A.
Chose to stay here as it was a centralized location for several groups of people to meet. Was a very beautiful and clean home to stay in. The home accommodated 12 adults with ease and the communication with the owner was responsive. Will definitely look to come back.

Great time staying
Our group had a great time staying at your home. We found it to be very roomy and we’re impressed by the cleanliness. Thank you for a wonderful weekend filled with memories! :)
/s/ Erika H.
The house is large enough for our family to all be together. We were able to play games downstairs as the kids were sleeping. Enjoyed the hot tub! A walk around the lake is great exercise. We enjoyed Elmer’s pizza and coffee down by the quarry.

Gorgeous Lake home
We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The cabin is GORGEOUS and there is tons of space to spread out and relax. Bonnie and Misty were awesome to work with - we added a pet last minute when a dog-sitter fell through and they were super kind and helpful. Loved our weekend getaway here.

Perfect for family gatherings
This is the 9th winter in a row that we have rented a property from Misty/Bonnie. I am always so impressed with the set up of the cabins in that every detail is considered. From the game room, bedrooms, bathrooms, and gathering areas these homes are designed perfectly for family/friend gatherings. Specifically with Sandy Shores, the proximity and view of the lake is perfect. The house is always clean, organized, with quality furniture and finishes. The Detjens Deluxe Rental team is professional, responsive, and provide excellent customer service. The overall package is unlike anything in the area. The proximity to the lake, and all the amenities are unmatched. I'll continue to rent from Misty/Bonnie every year.

Great place for our family gathering
Home was very clean and as described. Amenities were great. We had a snowstorm while there and the driveway was cleaned up very quickly. On our cold winter get away, the hot tub got plenty of use! Would love to rent in the summer. Thanks again.
/s/ Mary G.
Great place for a family gathering!
Very clean, great amenities. There was plenty of space and things to do within the house, when weather is not great. Hot tub was great!
/s/ Mary G.
Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us! We have been friends for 20+ years & this was our first vacation all together.
We had a blast and it was all because of this special place! We will definitely be back next year!
We had a great time
We had a great time sharing a 50th birthday celebration with friends, sharing movie quotes, paddleboating, playing cornhole. The house was great and exceded our expectations. Thanks for sharing your home!
Another Awesome Christmas weekend for our family!
This is a breathtaking and precious home that we enjoyed. Thanks for sharing!
Beautiful lake home
This was the first ever family trip to a beautiful lake home. Our family is very large and the house had everything we were looking for in terms of size, location, activities, and scenery. We appreciate you for hosting such a wonderful trip. We plan to continue this tradition for years to come!
Perfect place for a group of 12
It was cloudy, but we swam, boated, and enjoyed the house. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house.
We had an amazing time
First time I ever rented a house. It was wonderful. We had an amazing time. So much space for everyone to roam and have fun. Thank you so much for making this weekend perfect!

Great Family Reunion Location
We were happy that we chose Sandy Shores as the 2018 location for our annual family reunion. The kitchen was great, and everything worked. The bedrooms were large. The gathering space was adequate for all 17 of us. The views over the lake were excellent. Everyone agreed that it was a good choice. We would recommend.

What can you expect? Great location, large space, clean ...
We were 7 people with 2 dogs and this was the perfect place for all of us. With 2 kings and 2 queens, everyone gets a big bed. No one has to draw straws for a double, twins or bunk beds (though most rooms have those too). We love to cook and the kitchen was fully stocked with most of the appliances, accessories, kitchenware and flatware one could ever need. Even the chef knives were sharp. The grounds are great with plenty of space between you and the neighbors. Though it was winter with snow everywhere we still made a fire in the fire-pit out back. They supply you with all the firewood you would need. Hot tub was clean and in good working condition. The grounds are also right on the lake which is pristine and beautiful. Misty and Bonnie were great hosts though we never met in person. Very fast to respond and very accommodating. Your options are limited on Airbnb when you travel with a large group of people and 2 dogs, but this place was immaculate. They even gave us 3 nights for the price of 2!!!
Another fantastic stay at Sandy Shores!
We have made this property our Thanksgiving home for the past three years. Turkey cooked, games played, walked and Christmas Cookies made. Lots of memories made. We'll be back!

Perfect for our weekend
The house was a it was presented. Sometimes you never know, but it was really perfect for our weekend of 5 couples. The house was very clean and orderly. It has a nice view and is on the lake. It had everything you needed. There was a lot of communication about attractions. We went for a hike nearby that was indicated. And, they left a bottle of champagne for my husband's 50th birthday. Very thoughtful! We will come back again next year! Highly recommend for a weekend getaway!
The house and the view is awesome!
We loved it,everything was awesome,the house is equiped with all you need,recomend it 100%!

We are, without doubt, absolutely delighted with Sandy Shore!
This year, with grandkids one year older, Sandy Shore was simply amazing. The beach and particularly, the paddle boat made our stay exceptional. Already placed the order for next year.
Sandy Shore, as incredible as you described and truly enjoyed by all!
/s/ Warmest regards and gratitude,
All Inclusive Family Reunion
We had a family reunion of 18 here, traveling from all across the US to visit the lake we loved as kids. The home was beautiful and came with so many bonus features! We loved the hot tub, paddle boat, pier, raft, sandy beach, bonfire pit and kayak! Our hosts were very helpful and responsive to our every need from booking to check out! The lake was crystal clear and 72 degrees! We hope to visit again!
/s/ Shari S.
Gorgeous comfortable home!
This home has it all! We enjoyed the fireplace, hot tub and fire pit at the beach. I also loved the path along the side of the house. Its a nice little workout. Visited the Redgranite Lake/Quarry... what a gem! Went hiking at Kusel Lake Park among the pines...so beautiful! Purchased cheese from Willow Creek Cheese. And did a wine tasting at Vines and Rushes. It was a perfect spring get away! Thank you!

Excellent home for our Christmas get together
We had 12 people staying in December and had a great time. Bedrooms were comfortably large enough for a family of 4. If it wasn’t quite so frigid we would have ventured out to the lake more for skating. Used the hot tub, which was really great. Only small issue was the upstairs and downstairs bedrooms were kind of chilly. We found we could warm them up by increasing the thermostat before bed time, but then had to turn it back down during the day or the main level would get too warm. If we would have had more than 12, the common areas might have started to feel pretty congested. We loved our stay!

Family Get together

Gorgeous lake home
This cottage was perfect! So spacious we had plenty of room! The lake was beautiful and it was private. We built memories there and love the property highly recommended for large groups!!

A Few Days Away at Pearl Lake
This home was beautiful and impeccable. We had a group of 12, with a mix of ages. The floor plan (3 floors with a walk out lower level) was perfect for our group. We really enjoyed both being down by the lake and hanging out on the top and lower decks. Such a lovely spot on an amazingly clear and warm lake!
/s/ Teresa K.
Great location and beautiful home
This house fit your group very well. It had plenty of beds for sleeping. We had a small issue with the hot tub, but Misty addressed it and it was repaired very quickly. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay.
/s/ Brody W.
What an awesome weekend!
We had a great time at Sandy Shores. Everything was clean and well-maintained. We had 6 couples and there was plenty of space for seating and sleeping. A few were able to ice fish while the rest of us built a campfire and sat out on the beautiful beach...how often could you do that in February! Wonderful memories with great friends. We would definitely recommend Sandy Shores!
/s/ Mary S.
Beautiful Large Home
This home is well maintained and kitchen is well stocked with cookware and bakeware. The 10 of us had more than enough room. Everyone enjoyed the nightly bonfires, and of course the hot tub was well used. We saw eagles numerous times from the windows and deer right down the street. Also enjoyed skiing and tubing at Nordic. By the end of our week we had a sandy beach which had been snow covered when we arrived. Wonder how many times that happens in Feb!
Once again, this professional and knowledgeable company made sure that our annual family Christmas weekend was the very best it could be! From the notes about local activities to the wonderfully decorated tree, we were more than happy. Will be back again next year!
/s/ Debra O.
This is a beautiful place to stay and enjoy with family. Very clean and had everything you need. Plenty of room. You will enjoy spending time on the deck looking out at the lake and taking in nature. Very relaxing and would highly recommend this property.
/s/ Kim L.
This home exceeded my expectations in every way. Very spacious, water views out every window. Beautiful white sand beach area with fishing off the dock. Our group of 15 included 7 boys ages 8 and under and there wasn't a shortage of anything for them to do. Paddle boating, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and fishing off the dock were all favorites. The refrigerator in the boathouse was an added bonus and saved many trips to the house when we were on the beach. The house was clean, linens were fresh and plentiful. Cupboards were stocked with any kind of cookware you may need. (we over packed on things ) Misty and Bonnie answered every one of my questions quickly and were great to work with. Our family all agreed this was the first time we have ever returned from vacation relaxed and wish we could have stayed longer. We already booked for next year Thanks again for your beautiful home and allowing us to make memories of a lifetime.

Wonderful spring break getaway
We had a wonderful time. The house was beautiful and the kids loved the hot tub. We will definitely be back.

Our stay was PERFECT!
I honestly can't think of a single thing I would change/do differently! It seems like no matter what we needed, it was there. (We brought some wine, but no wine opener...you HAD IT! We were wondering about area restaurants...you HAD recommendations!) We had some great meals at local places, and I can honestly say, people in the community are SO friendly! Especially at the fabulous grocery store in Wautoma...I told my husband I could move there just for that store! :) So thank you again.
