Wife is getting transferred to Brainerd so will be looking for a place. We were thinking somewhere up 371 so were thinking Pequot Lakes or Pine River. Anyone up that way? Hearing Pine is a dying small town but looks to be a few nice place for sale.

Are you looking for a place in town or in the country? Land up there seems to be getting more expensive, but if you keep trying you can still find a good deal. I have a close friend in the area that managed to buy 40 acres with a house and a decent shop building for under $200k. It took him a few years to find that steal though.

I don't live there full time, but I have some land with a small cabin between Brainerd and Aitkin that I'm at often.

Pine River is far from dying. Properties in that area have been moving very fast in the last year. They just built a new clinic in town.
It's a lot nicer than Jenkins or Backus. Pequot is overpriced in my opinion.

So we ended up getting a small place in Brainerd. Nice older house 2 bed/1 bath.

Pine River/Pequot were nice areas but we decided wanted to be closer to town for her job. But we did find that there is as much competition for houses up there are here in the metro.

We are very excited to be moving north away from the chaos of the cities.

Added benefit ... and possible a curse. And we are walking distance to Triangle Treats. They have great ice cream.

I know two members on here that grew up in Pequot. My parents still live there. It's such a small town I find it strange anytime I see it mentioned.
