With its blue waters, bountiful seafood, and pristine pebbled beaches, there’s a reason Maine is nicknamed “Vacationland.” Now, Boston Magazine reports that urbanites wanting to flee the urban jungle for pine tree forests can purchase their own private island in Brooklin, Maine—complete with cottage and lighthouse—for $650,000.

Green Island is a one-acre plot of land with views of Acadia National Park’s mountains and the tiny island of Isle Au Haut. Its two-story, four-bedroom cottage comes equipped with a half bathroom, solar electricity, a wood-burning stove, a full kitchen, and an expansive porch. As for the lighthouse, the tower—known as the Blue Hill Bay Lighthouse—was constructed in the 1850s, and discontinued in 1933.

Green Island is presumably accessible by boat, but realtors say that inhabitants can also walk to the mainland during low tide. Interested in purchasing your own piece of Vacationland? Check out some photos below, or view the listing here.
