Stunning Silver Islet Cottage Rental
This lovely pine chalet is over 1200 feet of open concept design with main floor wood stove, master bedroom and 4-piece bath with hot and cold running water. Upper level has 2 more large bedrooms. Upper and lower decks overlook the ever-changing magnificence of Lake Superior.
The cottage sleeps 8 comfortably and is tastefully decorated throughout. It is an off-grid cottage powered by solar with a backup generator. There is a spacious sauna with attached Bunkie. This is the ideal place to unwind and let go of the hustle and bustle of daily life. Non-potable water is drawn from Lake Superior by jet pump into a holding tank, then gravity feed. An initial supply of drinking water is supplied, then further water stock is available at the nearby Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, where you will find laundry services, garbage and recycle facility – a park pass is included with the rental.
The cottage includes a fully equipped kitchen, all linens are provided, a landline phone, and satellite television. There is no internet or cell coverage.
Silver Islet is a quiet historic cottage community. A stroll down ‘The Avenue’ takes you back in time as most of the miners’ homes and some commercial buildings remain.
The natural setting of Silver Islet is serene but there are also amazing and exciting recreation opportunities to indulge your interests: boating, salmon and lake trout fishing, sandy beachfront with swimming in Lake Superior, plus very nearby inland lakes.
Adjacent to the Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, there are extensive well-kept hiking and biking trails and endless photography opportunities. For those who prefer quiet wilderness kayak or canoeing, there are miles of natural waterways to explore.
The cottage is easily accessed by paved road, and is a 1-hour drive from Thunder Bay, a city of over 100,00 and its International Airport.
Come to Silver Islet for an experience of a lifetime in God’s Country!
