About Svein A. Berg

We are a family of five, currently living in Manhattan, New York. Olga is born in Ukraine and Svein is from Norway. Our three children Sebastian, Sophie and Ingrid keep us pretty busy.

Svein A. Berg purchased this house in 2005

Why Svein A. Berg chose St Paul

We bought this house in 2005 when we moved to St. Paul. The house was built in 1889, and has a character and charm that spoke to us. It is in a child friendly neighborhood, with a huge park just and a public tennis court across the street. Mississippi Market, our local Coop with local and organic produce, is just a two minutes walk away.

What makes this house unique

The house has character, and a great floor plan for having friends over.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house was terrific, and again, big thank you for renting it to us. We had some family over and they all commented on what a great house you have, very cozy and Christmas-like.

Family and Friends Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Seven family members recently made the Berg House our home on a beautiful spring weekend. The caretaker greeted us warmly when we arrived and offered helpful information about the house and the neighborhood. We enjoy being outside so we took advantage of the lovely patio setting eating many of our meals there. The back porch with the screen doors matched the charm of the rest of the home. We like to cook even though there are many good restaurants within walking distance of the house. We shopped at the nearby coop that had everything we needed and found the kitchen well-stocked. There was plenty of room in the dining room for us and our dinner guests. We found the bedrooms quite comfortable as well. Before our visit, Svein answered all my questions and was a perfect distant host throughout the whole process of booking to check out. We will definitely stay at the Berg House again should the occasion arise.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the berg house for 5 nights. It was perfect! The location was great. Lots of shops, restaurants, and excellent bakeries close by. There was 8 of us which included 3 small children. We had plenty of room. We enjoyed the fireplace. The kids loved the snow! Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need!

I would definitely stay there again! Svein was great! If I e-mailed him the response was not far behind! I would recommend this home. Thanks Svein for sharing your home!

The best of St. Paul

  • 5 of 5

If you lived in St. Paul for a short time, a long time, or you're visiting for the first time, this house should be your base camp for exploring "America's Most Livable City." The accommodations and location are both ideal. Great restaurants and shopping (grocery and retail) are a short walk away. If you want to take a longer stroll, walk down Selby toward the Cathedral of St. Paul, then turn right and explore the grandeur of Summit Avenue. Grand Avenue is a quick walk too and worth your time. If the cold keeps you inside, no need to worry, especially if you have kids as there is plenty to keep them entertained (and not cranky) inside. If we could give it a six-star rating we would, and if we can book this house again, we will.

A comfortable and convenient family home

  • 5 of 5

we were in St Paul for My father inlaw's funeral and staying here allowed our immediate family to be together. The house is in a great location and is comfortable. We had everything needed and appreciated how much more relaxed it was not to be staying in a hotel. There were plenty of towels and bedding and good mattresses. Sevin was prompt in replying to my enquiry and responded quickly to a question I had. I would not hesitate to recommend this listing.

Roomy house in great location

  • 5 of 5

Our curling team stayed here for a 4-day weekend, and it couldn't have turned out better (other than our curling!). We had four 60-ish guys, and we each had our own bedroom (no dealing with snoring). The house had plenty of space - the bedrooms were good size, and we had a large dining room and living room to sit and visit. The Berg house was very cozy despite the very frigid outside temperatures during our visit. Between the hot-water heat and the switch-on gas fireplace in the living room, we stayed plenty warm. We found nearby cafes (Louisiana Café 2 blocks away) for breakfast and restaurants (great walleye at Tavern on Grand within 1 mile). The house had easy access to St. Paul sights such as the Cathedral and History Center. A bonus treat was meeting Ray (nearby caretaker) who directed us to a couple of our most enjoyable evenings (the Blue Door tavern for a 'Blucy' burger; and the Surly Brewery). Svein was easy to work with in setting up our stay; and the online descriptions and pictures were accurate. I would absolutely recommend the Berg house, and would stay there again when I return to the St. Paul area.
