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 cabin in 2010

Guestbook comments from the manager

I can't tell you adequately how much we enjoyed our 3 days at Whispering Pines. The cabin is so homey and inviting and it lacks nothing. You thought of everything! The weather was perfect, the foliage breathtaking, the fires were so comforting. We tried kayaks, hot tub, and even caught a northern and bass right off the dock. Of all the road trip rentals, yours is No. 1 Thanks

Log Cabin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful log cabin, tastefully decorated, located on lovely Lake Johns. We were there for a November weekend, very quiet and peaceful. Our 2nd stay, we would definitely come back. Bonnie and Misty were very easy to deal with.....we only had my wife and myself, but 2 bedroom cabin would easily handle more people, kid friendly.

Quiet, Cozy and Clean

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented this Whispering Pines cabin as a family getaway. For the 3 of us, it was just wanted we needed, and more! The cabin comes highly stocked with amenities, top of the line pots and pans and appliances. It is situated on Johns Lake, which provided fantastic sunset views over the lake, not to mention, a hot tub just off the deck! Yes, it was 9 degrees outside during our stay but we braved the elements to relax in the hot tub and it was well worth it! We also had a blast snow tubing at Nordic Mountain which was about a 6 minute drive from the cabin. The beds were very comfortable, the wifi and cable tv worked great and it was nice to bring our own dvds for entertainment as well. Plus, the owner also allowed for us to bring our dog. Would highly recommend.

Cozy cabin retreat

  • 5 of 5

There are some places that you feel drawn to and Whispering Pines is just that place. What is it about this cabin that makes you feel so welcome and at home? The decor is attractive and inviting. The furnishings, and even the dishware reflect the quality and care that has been put into this cabin. We enjoyed sitting on the deck on the very comfortable, and well made patio furniture. Cozy and clean, my husband and I had a relaxing, peaceful stay.

The lake view is absolutely fantastic, with an easy walk out to the water. The hot tub is conveniently located with a fantastic view of the lake. The grounds are well maintained and clean as well. Since our fall was so unseasonably warm, the yellow iris at the corner of the deck near the hot tub was in full bloom! Mid-November - full bloom!

It is a perfect getaway cabin for couples or small families, with two bedrooms on one level separated by an open kitchen/living area. I love every aspect of this cabin!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

I can`t say enough about this property. It was well maintained and very clean. My wife and I stayed in November so it was very quiet and calm. If you just need to get away and recharge this is the place. We absolutely loved it.

Adorable cabin, beautiful lake, seamless rental experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our three boys had a wonderful stay at this property. The cabin is packed with all of the amenities, and so many perks. Our boys loved the hot tub and the lake (we were in the water, despite it being the first weekend in October!). The sand box, kayaks, paddle board, paddle boat and row boat all got hours of use, and the quiet lake made for a relaxing escape. The property was very clean, and is clearly well-maintained. Can't wait to stay here again!! My boys continue to ask when we're going back!

Great Cabin in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Whispering Pines Cabin very much. The cabin was very comfortable, clean and nicely furnished. It was exactly the kind of place we were looking for to relax and unwind for a few days. The grounds are maintained very nicely and that adds to the overall ambience of the cabin. My husband took advantage of the row boat and caught some nice fish on John's Lake. We also had fun using the kayaks. The lake is not very big, but since we were there in the slower season we had the whole lake to ourselves. It was beautiful watching the sunset over the water. The rental process was easy from beginning to end and the customer service we received was outstanding. We had never been to Wautoma before and were happy to find many places to eat within an easy drive. We especially liked the Silvercryst Supperclub overlooking Silver Lake which was very close. We highly recommend this rental and would definitely go back.
