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.

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 house in 2010

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I had a great time on our week long stay at Sunset Beach. My kids and grandkids did a lot of swimming, tubing, skiing, kayaking and loved the paddle boards we also enjoyed the pontoon. We all enjoyed watching the lake activity. My 3 year old grandson loved watching the wake boarders go by, he would say here comes the music boat. And of course the ducks made there daily visit.

Fun Time

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our time on the lake. It was a little cooler than the last time we were there but got to rent a pontoon boat for one day, and also made use of the paddle boat and one of the kayaks. Also the fishing is great off the pier, several small fish, but several bigger ones also. We did catch and release so did not eat any of them.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This place was lovely, myself and my girlfriends gathered for a birthday celebration and really enjoyed the lake, the deck, the hot tub and the kitchen. It was easy to sleep 10 people here. Would love to rent it again

Overall it was a beautiful place. My house was awesome and the lake is beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time. It was a family vacation with my kids and grandkids. Down fall was the neighbor lady next door. The first two days were uncomfortable. She sat and faced us the first day off her pier and stalked us. The second day we had our firepit ready to go for the night and she come out and intruded our family dinner and threatened to call the sheriff if we lit that. We were officially 20 feet from her property and it was not like we are a rowdy group looking for trouble. That kept up for an hour or two. Wish the property had more yard but overall it was nice. Also too close to the highway which made me nervous with the grandkids and dogs. The house was awesome, plenty of room, clean, and well equipped. The beach front was nice and the deck was great. We enjoyed the gas fire place on the deck a lot. The view was awesome from the deck. Great memories were made. Thanks for everything. Also thank you to the owner who helped us out with getting us the boat and how to handle the neighbor lady. Thank you Wade!!!!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was very beautiful and large. Fit our needs as there was 22 of us. Our Grandson's loved the fishing and lived on the pier. Our Granddaughters loved the hot tub and spent a lot of time in there. The layout was great for our family and used to its full extent. We had a couple small issues but just called the owner and they were addressed right away. We went out to eat a couple of times. Once at Silvercrest and twice at the Moose Inn. We preferred the Moose Inn. Some friends came up and joined us one night when one of our children went home and they fell in love with the place. Just relaxing and enjoyable. We made many memories that no one can forget. Yes, I would recommend this place to everyone. Was wonderful.

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was,very clean and welcoming. It was a short two day visit for my husband and myself and much more room than we needed. We were exploring the area for a Summer 2017 summer vacation.This would be a great place for 2 or 3 couples to stay or girls stay. The lake and beach are beautiful. It would also be perfect for a family with children beyond toddler age. The front of the house is very close to a busy highway so young children would need.to be watched very closely. The stairway to the basement was a spiral staircase that worked well for us, but perhaps not,well for others. I would prefer the $750 refundable deposit if the property isn't damaged would not be charged when the rental payment is made. We left the house in perfect condition so I am hoping to see the $750 deposit credited to my account soon. We checked out almost 48 hours ago.

Wonderful Peaceful Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic time when we recently stayed at this property. The property was large enough to fit our whole family (7 people including a baby...and we needed 4 different sleeping areas) comfortably and quietly! The cottage is very well equipped and having laundry available is especially nice when boating/swimming. There's no dishwasher so bring paper plates or get ready to do dishes :)

The view from the spacious living area was phenomenal! We enjoyed grilling, boating, campfires, the hot tub, board games, and exploring the local area - especially El Popo, a fantastic Mexican-American restaurant in town. And the company/owners were a delight to work with. We would definitely like to visit again!
