This is my go-to place to stay for snowmobiling in the Finland area. Very clean. Very easy access to the snowmobile trail.

A cozy place to relax. The house is warm, well furnished, clean and provided easy access to snowmobile trails. A perfect place from which to enjoy the North woods. Diane and Eric were very accommodating to a schedule change and really worked with us to make the stay great. Easy parking for trailers also. We will definitely will go back.

Lovely and well-equipped home, warm welcome.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in Finland and Sisu House. The home was clean and very generously equipped with anything we might have needed- we wished we had seen the crock pot before the hiking trip! So many helpful brochures and maps. We went hiking in Tettegouche State Park (High Falls Trail was lovely in winter), and highly recommend taking a trip to The Trestle Inn!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your time at our house. We try to think of what might be needed when you are here. It would be funny if you had to bring Your crockpot on vacation with you. Come again, Diane

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.

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!

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)
