Oak Island Wildlife Preserve
This private island off the coast of Maine is a nature lover’s dream. The property gives easy access to hiking trails filled with spruce and sumac trees, gooseberries and white and purple beach roses. The accommodations include a one-room cottage powered by solar energy, with rainwater used for bathing, and a newly built sleeping cabin dubbed the Oak Island Love Shack. The cool, crisp Atlantic Ocean is teeming with fresh Maine lobster, so dinner is definitely not an issue.
