Location: Blakely Island, Wash.
The Skinny: Get away from it all at this rustic estate on Washington's Blakely Island, which has only 56 residents (57 once you move in!) and is solely reachable by boat or private plane. Located on one end of a scenic speck of land in the San Juan Island chain just off the coast from Bellingham, this retreat has spectacular mountain and sound views, is surrounded by 26 heavily wooded acres, and boasts moorage for a 110-foot yacht. The house is a suitably rambling Northwest Contemporary from 1978, with seven bedrooms and six bathrooms spread out over a roomy 6,000-square-foot floor plan. Interior pics aren't provided, but the listing assures us that there's a wine cellar, a jetted tub, and, um, vinyl flooring, which makes sense in a home located in a region of the world prone to rain and mud. Interested parties should invest in a decent pair of Wellies and be prepared to meet the $18.5M asking price.
