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)

Cute and comfy house with lots of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought my parents for their 53rd wedding anniversary. I have been trying to do this for a while one thing or another kept it from happening. With everyone healthy this year, I surprised my parents with this mini-vacation! They have done nothing like this before and they very much enjoyed their time here. My mom and I marveled over the workmanship and style of the house. My mom loved all of the books too. My husband and my dad enjoyed the backyard fire pit. Actually, we all did. 😀

Diane was wonderful and very accommodating!

The house was within easy driving distance from Gooseberry Falls, Split Rock, and Tettegouche state parks. We did them all. We definitely want to stay here again!

Very comfortable stay in a beautifully renovated “Sisu” house....!

  • 5 of 5

We had an opportunity to stay at “Sisu” house during our latest trip to North Shore. It was a a very comfortable 2 night stay in a beautiful and newly renovated house that was kept very clean and well organized.

House is very thoughtfully built with all the modern amenities that I could hope for on our small trip. There is outside little grill and fire pit that we did not get time to use. House has got 2 rooms one queen and other full bed. 3-4 people can comfortably stay in the house.

We will certainly consider this place again for our next visit to the area and highly recommend to others.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for another wonderful stay in your home! This was our third visit to Sisu House, we love the accommodations and the location - it is easy to do day trips up and down the shore of the lake. Diane is a great host, and the house is clean, well-stocked, and relaxing.

Cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5

A really nice, warm, clean and well equipped place. We had plenty of room for the snowmobile trailer and gained access to the trail system easily. It's a great place to ride from when in the arrowhead region. We really enjoyed it (again) and will definitely return.
