Kidd and Leavy Real Estate posted a listing on the lighthouse and island in the St. Mary's River, which is found in the southeast upper peninsula near Goetzville.

According to the listing, the 2,000-square-foot house has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and even features a helipad.

"The logistics of owning your own island have been taken care of," the listing reads. "The caretaker will come with the island ,and there is room for a helipad for more transportation options."

In case you wanted to build, there is room for guest homes, and the home has been featured on the discovery channel, according to the Kidd and Leavy.
