Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Gouldsboro, Maine
Price: $1,350,000
The Skinny: As if the rocky coastline of Gouldsboro, Maine—nearly five hours drive from Boston—wasn't remote enough, Yellow Island offers 2.11 private acres accessed only by boat. The heavily treed island is equipped with a pair of rustic cottages, a modern dock, and, well, not much else. Listed for $1.35M, the island enjoys breathtaking views of this particularly picturesque section of Maine coastline, but, unfortunately, no electricity. That means buyers will have to make do with the three-bedroom cottage's stone fireplace or face the pricey proposition of installing an undersea cable.
