About Misty or Bonnie

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 or Bonnie purchased this house in 2013

Comfortable, spacious, quiet and clean

  • 4 of 5

Our intergenerational family gathering was enhanced by the location. Peaceful, plenty to do, in the water or out, with a big deck with a lovely view of the lake, to watch amazing sunsets.

The dock held the grandkids attention. THey could spend the whole time in the water. WE kayaked, boated, took walks, rode bikes, read and enjoyed meals together, including a bonfire with the fire pit. Pleasant stay for all.

Beautiful lake property

We really enjoyed our stay! The house was spacious and well equipped. The main house and guesthouse were very clean. And it was just a short distance into town for grocery shopping and restaurants. Our family wants to return!

Great for relaxation and working

  • 5 of 5

We stayed several nights in this well-equipped, relaxing house for a mid-week meeting. It was early June, so the lake was quiet with few people around. The house had everything we needed and the boat house apartment was great. I would highly recommend this for a work or vacation gathering.
