The word 'vacation' and the year 2020 just don't really go together. Unless you're doing a day trip somewhere (safely and socially distanced, of course), I don't see many overall vacations happening (obviously). I've been getting the travel itch lately, and hopefully soon, there will be a light at the end of the tunnel to where we can travel safely and vacations can be a thing again. I think everyone deserves one after this year.

That got me thinking, what is a really cool vacation, but still something I can do right here in the state of Connecticut? Oh, I don't know, how about rent your own private island? That's a real thing, and that makes me super excited.

Right here in Connecticut, East Hampton, to be exact, you can rent out Laurel Island, which is a 5 acre island on a lake. The private island has 5 cottages as well as a large main lodge for gathering, and the island can accommodate up to 39 people. Here are some thing the island has to offer:

I love staying on places by the water, so this is definitely something for me. If you want to see more information, and what more the host has to offer, you can see the listing here. Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be planning my private island trip. I need to go see that sunset with my own two eyes.
