The Skinny:When Governor of New York, Ambassador to France, and Vice President Levi P. Morton built this "great camp" in 1899 as a relaxing summertime retreat to designs by William L. Coulter, one of upstate N.Y.'s most influential architects. The secluded collection of log lodges later came to be owned by the Girl Scouts of America, who operated the island as Eagle Island Camp from 1938, when the Graves family of Orange, N.J. donated the property, to 2010, when the Girl Scouts' Council voted to sell the island due to the cost of necessary structural repairs and insurance issues. A wealthy patron, one able to afford the $3.75M asking price and cost of upkeep, could come to enjoy some 47,000 square feet of classic interiors, with ten bedrooms and 13.5 bathrooms.
