The supply of Farm Island Lake homes in Aitkin County MN on the MLS is extremely tight; at the time of this writing* there were only four listings available on the MLS/IDX, so if you want to buy a Northern MN cabin on this premier fishing lake, you need to be vigilant, and you need to be decisive to get one. Farm Island lakefront properties are for serious cabin buyers only, and they are usually taken by serious walleye fisherman that know that you have to strike when it is hot. Remember, the nicest MN lake cabins on any northern MN body of water sell first, and that is especially true when the selection is this limited.
