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)

Clean and Cozy
Was great we will stay here again when in the area!!!
Glad you appreciated our efforts! Come again .
Great northern MN property, we highly recommend!!!
Amazing place to stay right out of Finland. Close to the ATV trail access which was wonderful. Very clean, cozy home with all the amenities. Great hosts! We highly recommend this property.
Glad you enjoyed your time in Finland and the ATV trails. Next time you’ll know where to go and what we have available in the house. You could always try snowmobiling in winter. Come again, Diane
Cute Finnish Home
This was a wonderful place to stay. It was peaceful and quiet, and the house was very clean and comfortable, with ample Finnish and English books to read. In one word, the house was "charming." We would stay again.
Glad you enjoyed your weekend in Finland, there is more to discover. Come again.
Wonderful stay at this charming retreat. Meticulously maintained, with well stocked kitchen that had everything we needed to prepare meals onsite. Enjoyed the backyard picnic table, and respite surroundings. Owner communicated well and was available for check in. We spent ample time here enjoying the home and setting. Highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a quiet get away. This was our home base for two days of hiking with our adult sons. Inland, so no views of Lake Superior which we didn't mind as the lake was seen on our hikes. A short drive from Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center.
Glad you had a good time in Finland. The rental costs would be higher if we were on Lake Superior, but such a short distance away-doesn’t seem to be a problem. Come again, Diane
Fun trip to North Shore!
Quaint house with lots of amenities. Great location close to several state parks. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!
Glad you enjoyed your time in Finland, our location is central to lots of parks and hiking :)
Excellent time in the northwoods with comforts of home
Our family had a wonderful time at the newly renovated Finnish Home! Diane has thought of and stocked the place very well with all the ammenties one would need, including homeade bar soap. The cork floors were comfy on the feet and allowed us to sneak around while our new born slept. My wife enjoyed a relaxing bath in the spacious downstairs bathroom with claw foot tub. We experienced an awesome meteor shower standing right outside of the home as well! It would be hard to find a more charming, well renovated, thought out and planned for rental on the Northshore!
Thanks, it’s nice to be appreciated. Glad you enjoyed our Sisu house and the meteor showers(nice bonus) ! Come again. Diane
