About Diane Lindberg

This is my childhood home, recently & totally renovated. We are proud of our Finnish heritage and that's why we chose the Sisu name. Sisu in Finnish means tenacity in the face of adversity, guts, 'stick to it'- tiveness

What makes this house unique

We wanted to keep the feeling and charm of an older home. But we do enjoy and have installed modern comforts (most recent: central air conditioning and WIFI)

Great renovated cabin with charm and convenient North Shore location

  • 5 of 5

Diane and Rick were great hosts and cabin has all comforts of home. Easy drive to Split Rock, Tettegouche State Park, Illgen Falls, Tofte. Would rent again in a heartbeat!

Fall get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Sisu house for our annual trip up north. We were here over MEA and it was nice to have a place to stay away from the bustle of the resorts over this week. The house is wonderful and perfectly located to get to many of the great state parks in the area (Cascade, Temperance, Crosby Manitou, Tettegouche , Split Rock, Gooseberry). We will definitely consider making this our home of the future for our trips up north.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your time up north at the Sisu house. We’d be happy to have you back again. Appreciate your comments about getting away from all the area resorts :). Diane and Eric

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

Sisu House was perfect for our stay. Its proximity to ATV and hiking trails, parks, area restaurants, and shops make it an excellent launch point for all adventures. Diane has done a superb job of restoring her childhood home, thinking of every detail, and we are so thankful that she has opened it to share with us and anyone who is fortunate enough to visit this beautiful area. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything one could need, the bedrooms were comfortable, the bathroom was well-appointed, and the house was clean, clean, clean. Thank you, Diane!

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a cute little home that is a very comfortable place to stay. The kitchen is very well stocked with lots of pots, pans, electric skillet and crock pot. We loved the claw foot tub and shower. It was a great central location for what we wanted to see on the north shore. We would love to come up in the fall sometime. .

Owner's Response: We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. A lot of thought of what would be good to have available for guests went into the process. Who wants to bring their crockpot on vacation? Come again fall and winter can be beautiful too! Thanks, Diane

Great place to snowmobile from instead of the usual shore motel.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there to go snowmobiling and it was perfect. Only a short ride to the NSST trail and a lot of snow unlike riding from a motel down by the shore. Cabin was real nice and clean and QUIET. Judy... Thanks for returning my phone charger....we will be back soon....Barry
