Islands constitute a unique category in real estate. They offer qualities and attributes found in no other type of property. This, I think, is particularly true when one is fortunate enough to be the sole owner of an island.
I think the most significant difference of island living is the sense of remoteness and separation. And in today’s increasingly connected and networked world the disconnect of an island visit can be a welcome retreat.
If you think you could use a trip to an island, please let me know. On Lake Vermilion there are currently (at least) 5 complete and wholly owned islands on the market. I would be happy to visit one with you.
