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 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

Loved every minute of our stay!

My husband and I booked this last minute while at a convention in Minneapolis. What a cozy corner of the world! Owners were delightful, house was immaculate and craftsmanship was impeccable!

Great off shore hideaway.

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed recently here and it was the perfect spot with enough room for a small family (2 younger kids and a baby.) Its right outside of Finland, which has a co-op store, so if you need or forget anything you can get it there. Close drive to the main highway, but far enough away from all the traffic and right in the center of the north shore. It has both a fire pit and a charcoal grill, and plenty of dry firewood for an inexperienced outdoorsman like me to get a fire started! I also recommend going to the Finland Heritage Site just down the road and take a tour to learn more about the history of the area but also specifically about the house's family history. Judy was a blast! Wish we could go here again but our baby will be too big to fit in the crib next year!

Nicely Located

  • 5 of 5

The house's location on the North Shore worked absolutely perfect for us! It is in the middle of all the sights of the shore. We really appreciated the updates the owners have done; it made our stay very comfortable. Very nice Finnish touches throughout. Being that we were two couples, we felt the house was large and comfortable for everyone. The firepit area at the back of the house is both convenient to access and very private. We thought the house was the perfect fit for what we needed and hope to be back soon!

We came here for fall colors and nailed peak time. My daughter and boyfriend were visiting from the Pacific Northwest and they had a great time. The home was well furnished, well stocked and warm. I hesitate to give it further accolades because I wish to keep it my secret but that would be selfish of me, so come and enjoy.
