Star Island is the second-largest island (46 acres) in the Isles of Shoals, located about 7 miles east off of the coast of the New Hampshire / Maine border. Star Island is technically part of the town of Rye, New Hampshire. It is the only island served by a commercial boat from the mainland. The island is a religious conference center, owned by the Star Island Corporation, which is affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ. During the summer, the island hosts a number of week-long and shorter conferences which make use of the Oceanic Hotel, Gosport House, the 150-year-old chapel, and several buildings dating back to the original village.

Many people have lost their lives on the island over the years, and there have been claims that the entire island is a hotbed of paranormal activity. The chapel is supposed to be especially spooky. TAPS (Ghost Hunters on TV) did an investigation of the island in 2009.
