Year Purchased: 1975
About the owner: Kurt and Scott Maethner are brothers who grew up in Saint Cloud, Minnesota. Kurt is a businessman who has been living in the Battle Lake, Minnesota area since he graduated from Saint Cloud State University in 1988. Kurt, his wife Tanya and their daughter Addison enjoy living on Lake Clitherall. Scott retired from the United States Air Force after 25 years of service. He graduated from Concordia College (Moorhead, Minnesota) in 1990. Scott, his wife Terri and their three children Emily, Allison and Thomas currently live in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Why the Owner Chose Battle Lake, MN, USA:
Walhall has been in the Maethner family for over 37 years. The cabin was originally built in 1970 by a friend of the family. In 1975, Art and Judie Maethner (Kurt and Scott’s parents) purchased the cabin as a summer retreat. Art and Judie were both educators so the entire family was able to enjoy lengthy summer breaks while school was not in session. The Maethner family built many wonderful memories at this cabin throughout the years to include fishing, swimming, nature watching and relaxing. After Art and Judie retired and Kurt and Scott left home to start their own lives, the cabin saw increasingly less use. After Art passed away in 2006, Kurt and Scott purchased the cabin from Judie. They converted it to a vacation rental to allow others to experience this wonderful place.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Clitherall Lake is one of the cleanest and clearest lakes in Minnesota. If you are out on the lake fishing, you can see the bottom of the lake at a depth of 16 feet. You can literally see the fish come up to your hook to take a nibble. The lake is 2500 acres, has 14.1 miles of shoreline and a maximum depth of 70 feet. The area in which Walhall is located has been in tune with nature for many decades. Township, city, county and state government entities respect, appreciate and nurture our natural environment, keeping it as a top priority in all of their planning and development activities. The permanent residents of the area are also very good stewards of the environment. During your stay, you too will enjoy nature's blessings to include the ability to interact with a wide variety of wildlife. You will make friends with chipmunks and squirrels, observe otters, beavers and mink at work, and run across turtles swimming and sunning themselves. If you are a bird enthusiast, you will be able to observe many species to include loons, ducks, geese, robins, blue birds, finches, woodpeckers and many more. Fish that reside in lake Clitherall include walleye, northern pike, bluegill sunfish, black crappie, largemouth bass, rock bass, yellow perch and tullibee.
