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.

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!

Dreamy, spacious log home... and what a view!

  • 5 of 5

Grandview was a dream come true for our family of 20. With 12 adults and 8 children, finding enough bedrooms and living space under one roof has always been a challenge but we had plenty of everything here! We love to cook and gather together around a meal so we especially appreciated having two fully stocked kitchens and a grill. We snuggled in front of the fireplaces, relaxed in the hot tub at sunset, played board games at the kitchen table, roasted marshmallows in the firepit, paddled around on the water, went for walks, and enjoyed the beautiful lake view and surrounding scenery. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we're already talking about a return visit.

Wow, it was sooo beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

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!
