I'm a big fan of getting away...and nothing says "getting away" to me more than my own private island. Now, I just need to figure out how to afford one. You'll be pleased to know that if you hit the lottery anytime soon, there are several options not too far away.

According to privatislandsonline.com, here are a few for sale here in Maine:
