Close to the town of Milaca (population of about 3000) which is the county seat of Mille Lacs county. The largest employer is the county government and the Independent School District 192. Mostly a farming community originally started as a logging camp around the turn of the century. About 25 miles to the north is Mille Lacs Lake, a very large fishing lake. Winter ice fishing and snow mobiling. About 30 minutes to the west is the city of St. Cloud. Mid sized college town of about 60,000 people.

Adjacent to public golf course. 250 feet of the scenic Rum River flows through the property. Geese, ducks, sand hill cranes, wild turkey, beaver, otter, bald eagles and deer have all passed through our yard at one time or another.

Operated as the Riverside Nursery for many years. We are retiring.

There are 3 other out buildings. One is a large post frame structure, the others are two stall garages. Small friendly community. There are many well maintained flower and vegetable gardens. Strawberries, apple tree, cherry tree and blueberries are all thriving and productive. Spectacular views both summer and winter of the Rum River and 'Stones Throw' public golf course.

Property has its own well and septic. Good drinking well produces 6 gallons per minute. The septic drain field is currently in ground. In our county, when a property is sold, a septic compliance test will need to be done. In most cases a new septic system must be installed. Typical cost is $10 to $15 thousand dollars. As it is now the septic system works perfectly. Real estate taxes are about $2500 per year.

Split level home with office, laundry, extra room and garage at entry level. Family room, bathroom and utility room are downstairs. Kitchen, living room, dining room, bedrooms and 2 baths are upstairs. There is a patio door and small deck on the north river side of the home.

The house had a new roof 3 years ago. House is very well maintained and has a completely dry basement. There is drain tile around both the interior and exterior of the home. Large mature Maple trees keep the house cool and comfortable during hot summer days. 100 foot long drive way exits to well-maintained paved roadway. Neighbors are friendly.

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like ForSaleByOwner.com to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
  • Who Should I notify about fraud or scam attempts?
