If you think a private getaway is without of your reach, think again! These islands, all under $1 million, might not be the remote expanses you were hoping for, but how many of your friends can say they have their own private island? For the same price as a lake house, you could have a secluded beach all to yourself.
10. Small Island
(Wohoa Bay, Maine)
The cheapest island we could find isn't exactly an exotic paradise, but how many of your friends can say they own their own island. You won't even need a passport to get there or worry about foreign taxes since this small island lies off the rocky coast of Maine. Plus, it already has a gazebo. At high tide, however, the top of the island is only around the size of a large backyard.
