I wonder the exact meaning of island folly. I guess there is an island in the lake, and a folly(a small tower or other unusual building) is built on the island. Is my guess right? Could you please explain island folly in the above sentence?

@kathy79,
Yes, you've pretty much guessed correctly. A "folly" was a decorative structure built for the purpose of improving a landscape or adding a certain visual interest to the view.
