For the ultimate exclusive getaway, rent an entire island. Ten-acre Eagle Island comes with a vacation lodge surrounded by a 1,500-square-foot wraparound porch. Activities include kayaking, eco tours, and fishing. Bait and baskets are available for crabbing. The lodge sleeps 12, and prices start at $475 per night for two guests (but your party must rent the whole facility).
