When you are rich and want some solitude on a private island, yet stay connected, you have to check out the Watch Island, which is one of the 1800 islands dotting the St. Lawrence Seaway, New York. The island offers a 6,500 square foot Victorian mansion that you can rent as the perfect holiday home! The house spots an antique look and is equipped with a living room decorated with a fireplace, a country kitchen, an operational pantry, four furnished porches, a grand dining room for 16 guests, and ten bedrooms to house up to 20 guests. The dining room spots 12 windows offer beautiful scenic views of the sea.
The islands lie close to the Alexandria Bay and the inland ponds and rivers of Jefferson and St. Lawrence counties, so you can enjoy all the water sports like wreck diving, float fishing and kayaking. You can rent the island on a weekly or monthly basis, but you might have 2 share it with another holidaying family. If you wish to buy it instead, you need to shell out $1,950,000.
