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 cottage in 2014

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!

Very relaxing, quiet getaway for our family

  • 5 of 5

The house is nicely furnished with everything we needed. Location was peaceful. Amenities were great. Hot tub not working but was being repaired unfortunately our stay was too brief to be able to enjoy it.

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.

WE wanted to get away to a cabin over looking a husband , TIm, puts in long hours at work and i'm disabled and I wanted to spend time with him and our boys. The boys enjoyed their getaway downstairs but the hot tub didn't get very hot. My husband and I enjoyed the peace upstairs just looking out at the water. All of my guys went out one day to try to fish but they got poured upon and it was cold. so my middle son started up the fire place upstairs and we warmed up. the next day when the weather was better they all helped me down to the dock and i caught 3 fish with a cane pole which the boys had never heard of. the beds was very comfortable and we slept very well.This vacation just was so very nice and peaceful and we got to spend time with our sons who are grown and work a lot to that we bearly see them.

Mitchell Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

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.
