Kiplinger: Private Islands for Sale, 2012

Ile de la Baie Bertrand

Location: Quebec, Canada

Asking Price: $1.3 million

Acreage: 4.1 acres


This island, located near the southern end of 31-Mile Lake, is an hour-and-a-half drive from the Ottawa airport. Solar power panels and a propane backup generator power the four-bedroom main house and an extra two-bedroom house. Wi-Fi via a satellite Internet connection completes the picture. The dwellings are set back from the water, with a lawn leading to a private beach. Along with an herb-and-vegetable garden, there’s a boathouse and even a cedar treehouse. Situated in the lake-filled Gatineau region of Quebec, the houses are insulated for winter use.
