Great Retirement Community
Our small town is in Southwest North Dakota where State Highway 8 and 21 meet. They call this area of North Dakota "The Banana Belt" because our weather is warmer and drier than the rest of the state. It is a town of about 850 people in farming and ranching country with good country values and an excellent work ethic.
This is a wonderful place to retire, filled with as much peace and quiet as can be found anywhere. If you are fed up with bumper-to-bumper traffic, high crime rate, noise, air pollution, fires, terrorism and whatever else that comes with a large city, then the town of Mott is for you. Yes, we have plenty of peace and quiet, wonderful clean air and security. For $20,000 to $40,000 anyone can buy a home in Mott that would sell for $200,000 to $300,000 in a big city. City lots to build on are also available at a very reasonable cost.
Medical assistance is important to a retired person. We have a clinic in town with a doctor nearly every work day and a fine ambulance service. It is merely thirty minutes from the nearest hospital and only an hour and a half to a major medical center. Medivac planes and helicopters cut that response time to next-to-nothing.
We also have a senior citizen center where they serve senior meals at noon in a homelike family setting. It is a great time to gather with friends. Folks can play cards there or at the K of C Hall, and several card clubs meet in private homes if you enjoy visiting over a card game.
Are you a sportsman? We are considered the "Pheasant Hunting Capital of The Nation." We also have lots of deer, antelope, grouse and turkeys. There is good fishing in the Cannon Ball river that runs through town and many well-stocked dams and ponds are close by. If you like big water, the Missouri River and lake Sakakawea is about one hundred miles from Mott.
Mott has an excellent nine hole golf course with a club house and an active club. The churches, coffee shops and local activities keep one occupied all year long. You can find something to do most every day within a short driving distance of Mott.
How about a walk in the winter when the trees are frosty? We have a lot of beautiful days in any season and the enjoyment of a safe, quiet walk around town early in the morning is a wonderful way to get your day started. Or how about an old-fashioned drive in the country without heavy traffic?
The opportunities for finding ways to enjoy retirement in peace and security are limited only by your imagination. If you have an R.V. come for a few days and park in our R.V. park. Yes, Mott has something very special and valuable to offer.
