At one time around 2003ish, there was a website where you could go to rent the houses located on Turtle Island. I searched for it today and they are no longer available to rent. I did find articles saying, Monroe County has requested bids to dismantle the 3 houses and remove them from the island. This past winter 2009, the ice from the lake has severly damaged two of the houses on the island. No you can't rent the island and the island's owner is Benson Crosslry Wilson as far as I know.
