About Kirk Allan Mahlen c/o Excellent Ventures
My wife and I have 2 children and live in Eden Prairie, MN. She works with Insurance Claims and I work with Healthcare IT. We enjoy travel, working with the International Youth Exchange, and have too many other hobbies to list.
Kirk Allan Mahlen c/o Excellent Ventures purchased this House in 2015
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.

This home is beautiful inside and out! The views are amazing! We will definitely be back!
We had such an amazing time from the moment we opened the front door. The house is gorgeous and so well set up to have guests. Everything went very smoothly, except the sound system took some getting used to :) But even with that, we called and they offered to come help us figure it out. We really had no complaints about the house! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home!
Beautiful Lake Home!
We had a wonderful experience! Beautiful home with great amenities! Loved the lake, the fishing was great and the pool table and darts were a fun late evening activity! Kirk was great too! We would definitely recommend to others and stay here again!
We really enjoyed the home, beach, caught fish off the dock. Would return. Thanks for sharing
We had a wonderful time
Hope to stay here again!
A group of my closest friends stayed here this past weekend and we had the best time. The cabin is absolutely beautiful. Huge deck to have meals on as well as a big yard to play yard games. Kirk was also a joy to work with. Always answered my questions and was very informative. We also rented a pontoon from a nearby place in hackensack which delivered and picked up right from hay lake. Couldn’t have asked for a better time! Hope to stay here again in the future!
