In Perham, you don’t have a commute so at the end of the day, so you can spend more time relaxing with family and friends. Many lakes in the Perham area make it easy for Jeff to do some fishing after work. He also appreciates the opportunity to go to the area Community Center to play basketball or swim.

shinyThough it is a rural community, Perham is still able to provide super-fast Internet service thanks to Arvig, the locally-owned telecommunications company. Having moved from a metro-area, Jeff knows that this quality of telephone, Internet, and video services is not always available, even in larger communities.

The small-town community feel is what Jeff likes most about living in Perham. “You can walk into any store and you know the business owner. It is a welcoming community with good neighbors who live and work right beside you.”
