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. Scott has been on active duty in the United States Air Force since he graduated from Concordia College (Moorhead, Minnesota) in 1990. Scott, his wife Terri and their three young children currently live in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Kurt purchased this cabin in 1975

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.

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.

WALHALL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was clean and comfortable. I was surprised to find everything I needed, from condiments to spray for mosquito bites. I wouldn't have needed to bring paper towels and napkins, either. We hiked at Glendalough State Park, just a short drive from the cabin and would have enjoyed more of the outdoors had it not rained. The cabin's fireplace made for some cozy evenings.

I'd highly recommend this stay! One can even rent bicycles for pedaling on the many nearby trails.

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
I won a mini stay cation to Walhall and it was just what our family needed. It was a cozy little cabin with all the amenities that one needs. There's a great deck to enjoy the views from, a nice firepit area, and the swimming area was nice too though it was a little chilly this time of year!

Absolutely would have given 10 stars, if I could. Loved everything about Walhall-it was so perfect for us. Lovely, homey & interesting home; loved the wall of books, as book lovers; and it was very clean & well maintained. The grounds were great, nice to have so many choices for lounging around & reading! Loved the lake, and was in it most days. Weather mostly perfect. A few musts: Inspirational Peak was breathtaking; dining on the patio at Stella's; and Glendalough State Park. Dave didn't have much luck with fishing, but had fun trying. Anyway-we will return next summer, hopefully for longer than a week.

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION AND AMAZING LAKE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here over the 4th of july week and it was great. Very hot week, but thanks to the lake and the Newly installed AC, we kept cool. This cabin is set up with everything you need, we have stayed at a lot of VRBO's over the years, and they run this place like a hotel, everything you might need, they have at your fingertips. Great job guys, we will be back!
