If you’ve ever daydreamed about escaping to your own private island after a long week, now’s the time to make it a reality. That is, if you’ve got $8 million to spare.

Hope Island, according to its real estate listing, is a “magical island kingdom” in Casco Bay, about 20 minutes off the coast of Portland, Maine.

The main residence is an 11,295-square-foot mansion with two guest houses to host all of your closest friends. There are also barns, a chapel, a boathouse, a tavern, and apartments for the staff so that you’re not left tending to all 86 lush acres of land by yourself.

It won’t stay on the market for long — realtor John Saint-Amour told ABC News that he’s getting 25 to 40 inquiries a day.
