Have you ever fantasized about living on your own private island? Emergency room doctor Rob Gorski proves that you don’t have to be Richard Branson or Johnny Depp to make that dream come true.

Three years ago, Gorski purchased Rabbit Island, 91 acres off the Keweenaw Peninsula in northern Michigan, for $140,000. Since then, he has continued to share his wanderlust dream with fellow urbanites by turning the island into a sort of escape for artists and creative-types.

The island’s residency, which Gorski describes as “a mix between a salon and summer camp,” has hosted musicians, photographers, filmmakers, and painters, all yearning for a taste of Walden-esque simplicity.
