We had a wonderful time. It's hard to find a nice affordable place with a hot tub. And Bonnie was great at communicating with us. The place was clean and comfortable.
A great winter get away, and I want to go back in the summer. The hot tub was by far my favorite!
Was a great stay! Our group had so much fun! The amenities were awesome, and we specifically liked all the informational notes around helping our stay a bunch!
Cozy and cute
We had the time of our lives at Bonnie's cabin! The place was cozy and cute, the views were great and the hot tub was magnificent! Would definitely stay there again!
We had a great time! The kids learned to ski at nearby Nordic Mt. We also enjoyed fishing and playing games. The large hot tub was awesome! Towels and bedding were supplied which was great.
Bonnie is a next level host, and the property is fantastic. She even reached out to locals in the area to find out where the fish were biting. 5 star experience.
Great spot on the lake. We were there in the winter and enjoyed a little ice fishing and soaking in the hot tub. Inside of the house was comfortable and cozy. Loved having the wood fireplace. Would definitely recommend.
Nice and clean, great place.
Enjoyed this property
We all enjoyed this property. It was great, there was a place for kids to hangout to watch a movie while the adults where up stairs. We also brought our dogs which was nice. Super helpful and responsive to emails and texts.
Great spot for a relaxing getaway! Close enough to find things to do, but secluded enough to enjoy the peace and quiet away. We had a wonderful, quiet week relaxing by the fire. The hot tub was a great bonus too! We will definitely be back. 😊
Property was great
We decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary in WI and wanted a nice place to get away. Everything about our experience with this property was great. We would rent again.
We had an incredible stay at Bonnie’s place. She went above and beyond as a host, And the home was perfect. We will cherish the memories we made there!
Great, clean home that met all of our needs. We came with our best friends and each had private space for relaxing, sleeping and our own bathrooms. The view was beautiful and the area was quiet and relaxing. We will be back!
Exactly as described
Property is exactly as described and pictured! Plenty of room, firewood was well stocked for the fire pit and indoor fireplace. Too chilly for the lake but the boats were available and it looked like it would be great for swimmming.
My husband and I stayed here for two nights for our mini-moon and had a great time - The fire pit and hot tub were fabulous!
3 siblings came to celebrate a 65th birthday. Peaceful, tranquil, beautiful scenery Everything we hoped for and more. LOVED the hot tub, firepit and fireplace. Everything we needed we had. Communication was excellent with owner. Only thing we missed was a dishwasher, but it took us back to our childhood when one washed, one dried and one put away the dishes! A welcomed break from the crazy world of Covid. Would love to come back.
Great location, very nice view of the lake, lots of amenities (firepit, kayaks, paddleboat, fireplaces), etc.
This property provides many things to keep you occupied and also many ways to relax and unwind. The entire rental process was a breeze. It was a wonderful family vacation.
We had a great time at the lake house! There was plenty of space, games and a hot tub to keep you relaxed! The kitchen being stocked with any type of dish or kitchen utensil you need was a great touch!
Just prior to the COVID shutdown, I broke my ankle - it required extensive surgery. Then everything shut down and we've literally been trapped in our house since late February. I was thrilled when we were able to book Bayside for a much needed getaway. The property was perfect - we had everything we needed. It's a great amount of space for everyone to enjoy. We kayaked and grilled and played games. It was awesome. It was a great week that we'll remember for a long time. We're looking forward to booking again!
Lake is warm and clean, views are beautiful, and the house itself was clean, fully equipped with everything we could need, and the location is great. We loved it.
Peaceful and beautiful
We loved our stay. We had 2 adults, 3 teenagers, 2 younger children, and 2 dogs. The home fit us all nicely and had everything we needed. The lake was spectacular - so peaceful and beautiful. We loved kayaking and swimming, grilling out on the deck (what a view!), and finishing our days in the hot tub. Our kids are already asking when are we going back.
This was the perfect get away from quarantine life. Three months of kids being cooped up in the house, was finally relieved by spending four days at the Bayside with family. We relaxed, took pontoon boat rides, swam, fished, used the hot tub, cooked out and enjoyed the property and scenery. Thank you for an amazing stay!!
The house was great, true to the description and Bonnie took extra measure to ensure the hot tub was all set for us. We had a great time! The Wii and WiFi we're also a nice extra!
Loved the location!
Great place to stay! Loved the location! Steps to the beautiful, crystal clear lake. We loved our visit.
Great place to stay right on the lake with great amenities!
Perfect for kids. We really enjoyed it.
Everything we had hoped for and more
Spent a weekend with my family at Bayside and it was everything we had hoped for and more. Did some ice fishing, played games, and the hot tub was such an awesome addition!
You will not be disappointed
We couldn't have found a better place to spend a week with family and friends. It was clean, the kitchen was stocked better than our home & the location was perfect. Before we left we had already rented it for next year.
/s/ Maureen G.
Our family so enjoyed this lovely home and lake. Even though the water was high and no wake we enjoyed kayaking and pontoon rides everyday. We will be back.
/s/ Sue G.
We enjoyed a wonderful week with our kids and grandkids last week. Everyone from age 2 to 72 loved the lake, fire pit and wonderful views from the deck. The cottage was perfect with everything we needed. Hope to be back next year!

We so enjoyed our time
We so enjoyed our time at your Bayside Getaway that there were two fairly worn out grandparents after we played with the six Grandchildren and our dear daughters and spouses. We have been renting cottages and Lake homes for many years now and yours was the nicest that we have ever been blessed to have stayed at! It was a very comfortable, welcoming, CLEAN place! The water is nice and clean.
Next month “God willing” will mark our 50th wedding anniversary and we debated how to mark this special occasion. We have limited funds but decided this year to splurge and rent the “Bayside Getaway” for our daughters and their families with five of our six Grandkids in high school! It was a huge feat clearing everyone’s calendars!
Once we tackled that, we hoped that there would be enough to keep everyone entertained and having fun. The nice size raft, bicycle boat, kayaks and campfire ring all played a huge part in making our informal celebration one that we all will remember for many years to come! Family has always been very important to us and its not always easy to find a space to gather with a family of 12 to celebrate and have fun in!
“Thank you for your help in guiding us through with all of our questions and reassuring us that while it was a bit more than we had hoped to pay that it would be well worth it! You were so right! We are so glad that we chose the Bayside Getaway for our 50th Anniversary Celebration! One just can’t put a price on all the memories made in one week together.
This was the first cottage/lake home that we rented with air conditioning and we were so grateful we had it as we were having a heat wave most of the week of our stay.
Bayside has many comforts large and small to add to ones stay!
Thanks for the memories! Bless you for what you do to help people find places to step back and enjoy God’s blessings! We hope to return again. Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Great family home
This place is wonderful for a family getaway. The home has everything you can ask for and the neighborhood is lovely. The home has 10 beds and the the option of 2 people sleeping on the two long sofas.

This house is amazing
This house is amazing. Beautiful views of the crystal clear lake top the list of everything that’s great about this place. We had a great time and the house is beautiful. Definitely recommend staying here.

We had a great time
We had a great time and really enjoyed the house on the lake. A relaxing weekend with a lot of bicycling in the hills. I did 70 miles on the bike. Thanks for all the good information and help.
Nice, clean property
Check-in and check-out were pretty hassle-free. We stayed at the property in the winter and it was great (jacuzzi!), but I'm sure it's also a beautiful spot in the summer.
The house is amazing
The lake is steps away and their is a big deck to sit on (if it isn’t the dead of winter like it was for our stay!! Lol) to watch out over the water. Everything was so easy and the house had everything we needed and then some the have a beautiful Christmas celebration with friends. Great great great house for an amazing value. Loved it.
The house was beautiful and had the perfect amount of space for all of us.
We made meals everyday and the kitchen was fully loaded Even though we could not swim due to the frozen lake, it was still so peaceful to watch all the migrating birds from the big windows facing the lake and relax in the hot tub.

Perfect Cabin for Our Honeymoon
My new husband and I rented the Bayside Getaway for our honeymoon, and it was everything we had hoped for! After the stress of wedding planning, getting away to a rather secluded area was just what we needed. We loved all the amenities (rowboat, fireplaces, fire pit, hot tub, grill) and made good use of them. I keep joking that I want to buy a gas fireplace like the one downstairs now! Wautoma was a pretty charming place to stay as well, and we even took a day trip to Princeton to check out the antique stores. All of my interactions with Bonnie and Misty were great, and they made it so easy to handle payments and any questions I had. I would definitely rent from the Detjens again and am now a cabin person!
Wonderful vacation home, fantastic week with family!
My family of 10 (myself, my grown daughters, their husbands, and my five teenage grandchildren) had a fantastic week at this wonderful home! It easily slept all of us, and we instantly felt at home. We were amazed at how easily our teenagers mastered the kayaks and paddle board, and how many hours they spent on the lake! We laughed as my daughters tried to master the paddle board! I didn't try. It was a great time for our family to relax, have fun together, and have wonderful conversations. I will recommend this home, and VRBO to all of my friends.
The house had a great location right on the lake and across from a small peninsula.
We enjoyed watching all of the wildlife in the area. Watched sandhill cranes protecting their nest on the peninsula. The house was comfortable 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.

Great place for my family and friends
Great place for my family and friends to stay during our wedding at Caribou Bay Retreat. The kids especially loved sitting in the hot tub looking out at the lake!
Fantastic Place to Stay
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
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!
Thank you for giving us your place for the weekend
Everything was perfect. Especially the hot tub & fireplaces. We are deeply considering this place again for the summer.
Until next time…..
Thank you for opening your lovely home for us to celebrate my Birthday
It was my first time in Wisconsin, and hopefully Not the last. We really enjoyed the beautiful views & homey Atmosphere.
We had a memorable family get-together
Thank you for making It possible for us.
Much needed getaway
Love this place. So inviting and cozy. Would like to stay here forever! Thanks for sharing
Thanks for setting everything up to perfection.
We enjoyed or stay
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.
We enjoyed it so very much. The setting is so peaceful, we were able to relax and have a wonderful visit with our family. God Bless!
Thanks for a great weekend!
The hot tub was super even in this very cold weather. It was nice having beds for everyone and the beds and bedding were good quality.
Loved the view of the lake & your wonderful beds! (great for me w/back problems)
We live in the country with no neighbors so enjoyed being the only ones here due to off season. Just like home. The décor is spectacular!
Just like home..steaks on the grill, bottle of wine and a fire in the fireplaces
Who could ask for more. The beds were very comfy, very quiet, nice neighbors. Beautiful, quiet lake. We love it! Already planning to come back
Thank you for having us at your home
We enjoyed playing games, enjoying the fireplace and especially the hottub. The calmness at night was great, and seeing all the stars in the sky was peaceful. Great times had by all!
Beat my expectations
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.
Bonnie was AMAZING to work with
We had a few complications upon arrival and she was so prompt to find solutions.
Well kept, spacious home on the lake
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!

Cozy and as Advertised
The place was very comfortable and cozy. Located in a nice rural neighborhood which was great for walking/running.

Great lake house
Had everything you would ever need included. Misty and Bonnie were great to work with. Everything was wonderful from start to finish!
Very relaxing, quiet getaway for our family
The house is nicely furnished with everything we needed. Location was peaceful. Amenities were great.
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.

Mitchell Family Vacation
The Mitchell family (9 of us) ALL enjoyed our week long stay and... it is not always easy to please 9 people with different views on everything! 7 adults and 2 teenagers had more than enough space and activities to make the week fly. The weather was picture perfect (one rainy day was great to catch up on reading and cards) with all the water crafts (kayaks, paddle boat, paddle board, aluminum boat) you would need. We brought a canoe and inflatable rafts and had a ball with those, floating across the lake. The lake is VERY clean with sandy shores. We rented the pontoon for the week and that worked out well for fishing and late afternoon cruises. The house was equipped with absolutely everything you need to cook, bake, grill (sharper knives would be helpful). Golfers were in 7th heaven with the local course and 2 trips to Sand Valley. We would definitely return if schedules permit..... CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, WELL-EQUIPPED, QUIET..... thank you Bonnie and Misty!
One note: take care if washing whites.... something in the water stained a white shirt.

Clean and well maintained
Have stayed here 2 years in a row and love it!

A lovely get away spot. Clean and well furnished.
Bayside Getaway was clean and well-furnished. The cottage is beautifully located on this nice, clear lake. We enjoyed watching the variety of birds in the area and just the views of the lake. We stayed at Bayside Getaway the week after Memorial Day and it was very quiet. Enjoyed the use of the paddle boat, kayaks and paddle board.
/s/ Sue R.
Very nice, clean home
We enjoyed our family weekend getaway over Mothers Day Weekend. The home had enough bedrooms and was very clean. I would definitely recommend this home and hope to one year come back.
Wonderful home to rent!
We rented this home for a ladies retreat. The home was very clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable, there was plenty of space in the kitchen to store our food, and there were plenty of appliances and dishes for our use. The best thing though was the location. The house was very easy to find and the location was very quiet. It happened to be a very warm November day and we were able to canoe, use the paddle boat, and even do standup paddle boarding. And the hot tub was awesome. We would definitely refer friends to this home, and hopefully we will be back as well!
/s/ Carol M.
Wonderful and relaxing!
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed this home very much! The house was exceptionally clean and well taken care of. The beds were very comfortable (we've stayed at many other vacation rentals before and these beds were by far the most comfortable). There was plenty of room for everyone (we had 6 adults and 2 children in our group) but still cozy. We enjoyed using the kayaks, beautiful fall walks, and fishing, we brought our own boat and the launch was easy to access and nearby. Also, loved how close it was to town but yet far enough away. Wonderful time and would highly recommend!
/s/ Nola K.
Very well kept property with everything you can possibly need during your stay
We had a great long weekend with some of our family members stopping in and we also had great neighbors. Since we have been there before, there were many happy memories to share. The view of the lake is wonderful so spending time on the deck was a real joy. Bay View is a wonderful place for a vacation. Thanks - Vi and Jan Peterson.

Very nice home on a beautiful little lake
We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at Little Hill Lake home. The home was lovely and well maintained. We enjoyed the upper level deck with it's wonderful view of the lake and ate most of our meals out on the deck. The private beach had a nice pier and swim raft and the water was perfect for a dip in the lake. One of the highlights of our trip was using the kayaks to kayak around the lake. It's a great secluded and private location yet convenient with shopping and restaurants a short drive away in Wautoma.
/s/ Tom B.
Beautiful and Peaceful
My two sisters and a niece came to Bayside for a card retreat. We set up an extra table in the living room to make cards and thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic view of the lake while making cards. The kitchen area was close by and open to the living room, so the cook doesn't miss anything. Our stay was very quiet and peaceful --- totally relaxing and very enjoyable. We would recommend Bayside for getaways and family time.
/s/ Jane B.
Wonderful kid-friendly vacation with friends
Very nice property with something for everyone. Our group was 3 families with 6 kids ranging from age 11-13. Not once did we hear the kids say they were bored. The water toys, hot tub and beach kept the kids busy until we went to bed. Launching a boat was convenient and nearby. The property was as advertised. Very clean with lots of sleeping space.
/s/ Erin B.
Very warm and clean
My son and I wanted to get away for some ice fishing and relaxation. Our stay was very comfortable and we created lots of fun memories. Thank you for letting us stay in your lakeside home.
Ideal lake home for vacation
The lake house was ideal for our family vacation this year. The photos are very accurate; the property offered great amenities. The beds were comfy, the kitchen had everything we needed for our cooking and baking needs. We loved the upper deck, great for grilling and relaxing, there's a nice dock we fished from and secured our boat. We enjoyed the fire pit as well. There's a Piggly Wiggly nearby; had everything we needed. The layout worked well for our family, as there's two bedrooms and a bath on the main floor, plus the downstairs has a living room, bedroom and bathroom. The downstairs was perfect to provide plenty of space and privacy for our daughter, son-in-law, their 8 week old son and Black Lab. We enjoyed fabulous dinners at Christiano's, Moose Inn and Silver Cryst. There's a cool coffee shop, Mt. Morris Mill Coffee Shop we loved. We had a lot of fun wine tasting at Lunch Creek Winery, and Milty Wilty's had ice cream and mini golf. We would highly recommend this lake house.
