This Midwestern Island With an Indoor Hot Tub Is a Private Paradise [PHOTOS]


Having your own private island has always been the height of luxury, but now it’s more important than ever to stay away from other people.

Private islands are not just in the Maldives, though. This place, Dollar Island, is near Cedarville, Michigan. It got its name because the .6 acre lot was once sold for just one dollar. Located in the Snows Channel between Cedarville and Hessel, this little island is part of a 36-island chain called Les Cheneaux.

This three-bedroom, two-bathroom spot includes a sauna, stained glass windows, a covered porch and even a hot tub where you can watch the water outside. You can climb up that turret with the awesome balcony to see incoming boats, and there’s even a waterfront gazebo that is perfect for romantic dinners.

The property also includes a three-stall boathouse and multiple boat slips for your many watercrafts.

If you’re in the market and looking to protect the family, $850,000 seems like a small price to pay for total isolation. For more information, visit the listing page or contact John Griffin at Coldwell Banker schmidt-Cedarville at 906-484-3945.
