Is there any Buildings or Structures (ie. radio tower etc) on the island? Is it connected to the mainland(s) by a causeway?

The only structures on the island are those at the
lighthouse complex, at the southwestern corner, about 1 mile from the parcel for sale. In that
complex there is the lighthouse itself (very pretty, two lighthouse keepers houses, a helicopter pad, a small boat dock, and some small outbuildings. There are no other structures -- towers, or anything else -- anywhere on the island. The property for sale is in pristine condition.

Other than regular tides and normal seasonal storms, is there any history of flooding on the private part of the island? What is the property's highest altitude (high point), i.e. feet above the lake's water level?
 

There is absolutely no history of flooding to the best of my knowledge. The land on the private parcel (and most of the entire island) is well up from the lake level. How many feet above it I cannot say, but there is no marsh or wetland of any sort on this private parcel.

Can you get to the Island by plane? Also is there a Helipad or any paved roads?
 

There is no landing strip on the island now, although there is, on the property, a very large flat meadow that could (I reckon) be made into one. There is, at the lighthouse about one mile away, a helicopter landing pad.

What is the usual cost for property taxes for this property?

Because the land is undeveloped, and without infrastructure (like much of rural Canada) the property taxes are virtually nil -- in 2003, $88.00.
