I am looking to make a clean break and move to a New England island, somewhere suitably remote but suitably -- by my standards -- liveable.

I have reached a point at which I need to make a clean break. I am not fleeing prosecution, debts, or anything of the sort; I just need to get lost, at least for a while, to work on my novels, with no forwarding address, no friends, no history. People in my life know my MeFi username but not my plans, so I'm posting anonymously.
I am looking for somewhere accessible only by ferry -- no bridge. A car ferry would be excellent, and one that could accommodate a trailer would be exceptional. I am of modest means and cannot entertain the notion of a ritzy privately-owned paradise -- somewhere reasonable, where normal people can live, is what I am seeking.
I would like:
2) Mail service
3) Internet access
I would hope for:
4) A somewhat welcome reception, or, even more ideally, an island where people just keep to themselves.
I would request responders to refrain from excessively discouraging me from doing this at all. I am looking for logistical, not moral, assistance.
I have created an account at email@example.com -- if you have a question, something about which I have been unclear or something I haven't thought of, feel free to write to that address and I'll respond, and maybe you will be gracious enough to post my follow-up.
Again, you are not helping someone flee justice -- you are just helping an introvert become a hermit for a while.
