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 Wautoma

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.

The cabin was indeed grand and we had all we needed and more.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 21 stayed at the grand cabin for 3 nights just before Christmas. We enjoyed our stay and loved the decor and rich history in the antiques and design of the place. It was spacious and well equipped with kitchen supplies and the bathrooms were also plentiful and stocked. The view from the lakeside was gorgeous. We did indeed enjoy our stay.

Amazing house and lake!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

Outstanding Lodge

  • 5 of 5

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!
