I might be having an opportunity to move to Bismarck in the future. I have been doing some research to see rental costs their for duplexes/apartments/houses and the main theme I am noticing is that there are no pets allowed. It is just my wife and I , and our little dog that doesn't do anything wrong, ever.

Is the "no pets" a common thing in Bismarck?

Also, we are in our mid 20's and like to hike, fish, and my wife is a music teacher. Is there a life in Bismarck for her and our lifestyle? We are obsessed with mountains, are there any nearby?


Thanks!

You may want to consider just picking out a few likely places, and then politely asking the landlord if you can work out a deal to allow the pet. I think for a lot of them it's just a kneejerk thing they put to cover themselves in the event of bad renters. If you explain you'd be willing to pay extra, make the deposit return conditional on a clean pet-smell free unit, they might become a bit flexible on the issue.

No offense but you need a geography teacher. There are no classified mountains in North Dakota. There are some good size hills in Western North Dakota that are pretty like Teddy Roosevelt NP but no granite peaks. The closest "mountains" would be the Black Hills in South Dakota or actual mountains on the Rocky Mountain Front in Montana and Wyoming.

There is good fishing north of Bismarck on Lakes Sakakawea and Oahe and downstream of the dam on the Missouri. I'm not sure of hiking trails outside of the Little Missouri area in Western North Dakota.

There aren't many naturally occuring trees, either. Lots of fishing and outdoor oportunities.

Thanks for the response. Someone told me about the Killdeer Mountains, which as I have now found out, are classified as buttes. Never been up there. I figured there might be some within close range as Canada is full of them as I have heard.

My wife & I love the mountains also but just got here to Bismarck late last year. Bottineau is close by and there are some very pretty treed-hills; makes for nice weekend getaways.

The apartment complex we live in states no pets, but there are at least one or two dogs floating around so I would ask the landlords of properties you are interested in if they will allow any small dogs. Worst they can say is no.
