About 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!

Misty Detjens purchased this lodge in 1996

Why Misty Detjens chose Central Wisconsin

We built the Grandview 1996 as our dream home. We raised our 3 boys and then we became empty nesters... and our dream home became more home than we needed. in 2010 we purchased a smaller lake cabin a few miles down the road and decided to let our guests enjoy this amazing property.

What makes this lodge unique

Our log home has it all.... comfortable deluxe accommodations, view, boating, swimming and fishing lake, clean water with sand bottom, quiet area, and plenty of room for the extented family. Deluxe features include gourmet kitchen, + 2 second full kitchen, cedar lined sauna, 2/2 sided massive stone wood burning fireplaces, 2 car attached garage, mud room, laundry facility, game room with pool table, foosball table and so much more.

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

An Amazing Space

  • 5 of 5

My group of 20 and I were very happy with this cabin. The amount of space is amazing as the rooms continually open up into one another. The kitchen is a good size and well-equipped for large meals. The deck has an amazing view of a crystal clear lake. There is plenty of lounging space inside on any of the many couches or outside on the patio, deck, or around the fire pit. Per our hosts' instructions, renting a pontoon boat was very simple and a great extra amenity. Also, it is worth noting that there is plenty of parking around the property and in the garage to accommodate the large groups staying at the cabin. Overall, I was very pleased and would consider staying here again.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was incredible. Misty was extremely responsive with any questions we had and it was easy to check-in/check-out. The house was absolutely huge and beautiful. We slept 20 adults and never felt crammed. The deck was spacious and had a hot tub overlooking the lake which was more than we could have asked for. It was too cold for us to use the lake, but the water was very clear. Overall, a perfect place to stay!
