The cottage is equipped with an outdoor kitchen which has a small two burner stove top as well as a BBQ to cook on. We suggest bringing some pre-prepared easy meals that heat up quickly.

The Sibley Peninsula and Silver Islet are a birders paradise. Sleeping Giant Provincial Park is home to the Thunder Cape Bird Observatory which is within hiking distance from Islet Cottage.
Islet Cottage is located on the shore of Lake Superior, the worlds largest fresh water lake. The water is cold year round and weather conditions are subject to sudden and sharp changes. The big lake helps cool us in the summer (bring a sweater), helps deter the bugs, entertains us with amazing storms and provides us with breathtaking views.
We will be at Islet Cottage to greet you and to give you a brief orientation on all the eco-friendly systems (solar/cold food storage system/water systems etc) and to give you any information about the area or Sleeping Giant Provincial Park that you require. Our cottage is next door, so if there is anything you need or you have a concern, just contact us or leave a message on our message board and we will get right back to you.
The ground is rugged, so sturdy footwear is essential.
We are totally off-grid. There is no cellular service at Silver Islet and Islet Cottage does not have wifi, internet nor telephone service.
