Why Kirk Allan Mahlen c/o Excellent Ventures chose Pine River
We have been vacationing and visiting this area in every season for many years with our children and close family friends who also have homes on this particular lake and in the area. When the property came up for sale we were able to purchase it with plans for a vacation rental. Unfortunately, we had to tear down the original cabin (where the fire pit is today) and build a new home. One of our favorite areas anywhere in the world. We opted for a more secluded, "off the grid" kind of location versus busier and more commercialized settings.
What makes this House unique
Beautiful lake views (no development whatsoever across the lake). Eagles. Singing loons. Occasional bears. Clear water. Private beach and dock. Good fishing. Great water sports. All the comforts of home. Private. Friendly people. Awesome weather. Star-filled night skies like nowhere else. Local attractions if you're willing to drive. Whatever you want to make of it.

We came for a week in fall and it was a very cozy and quiet vacation! The owners were very quick to respond which is always great!
A pretty perfect cabin
The six of us had a wonderful time at the cabin! It had everything we needed and more. The dogs really enjoyed swimming while the humans paddled in the canoe and kayaks.
The cabin is beautiful and new, with a perfect kitchen (and grill) for all the cooking we did. We had an awesome time chatting around the outdoor fire pit.
Thanks for everything! We would definitely want to stay again... these few days flew by!
Beyond pleased with rental
I cannot wait to book another trip back here! The house was beyond clean and well furnished. They also allowed dogs! It was the best getaway home we could have asked for. The lake is so clear! Beautiful view with crazy cool nature! So many blue Jays to see in the morning as you’re out on the deck enjoying coffee watching the calm lake and sunrise! Kirk and Kathy were so quick to respond and so kind. Wheeler Marine was great as well! Having the pontoon was awesome! The only thing we would have changed is staying longer. We need a full week plus next time! Looking forward to making more wonderful memories at this beautiful home!
So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for leaving the house so tidy!! Hope you decide to stay again!
Hay Lake Vacation
Renting this property was easy to do. Any questions I had were answered quickly. Everything listed for amenities were there. The house was beautiful and we loved it!
Glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking great care with our home! Hope you decide to come back!
Great Lake House
We had a great time staying here! The property was only built a couple of years ago (I think) so it felt very new and clean. We had 6 people and 2 dogs with us and everyone had plenty of room and agreed it was a perfect spot for a laid back trip. It was well stocked with everything we needed and we enjoyed going out on the lake, grilling, using the game room and having a fire at night. The owners were also great with their communication. I'd highly recommend it!
Perfect location for a girls getaway
We enjoyed our stay on Hay Lake. Check-in and communication was great. The place had lots of lake vibe decor and was like staying at someone’s home. They had everything you could need.
