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.

Beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

The Berg House is perfect, it has every amenity you could ask for and the location is phenomenal, just steps away from great bars and restaurants. The house was spotless and very easy to access. Hoping to stay here again at some point!

Adele in St. Paul

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Berg House in July. We found we were close to everything - and surprisingly close to the Xcel Energy Center for our concert. The house was nice and tidy upon our arrival and the rooms were very comfortable. Very nice amenities - the shower was great.

There was so much to do and see, we wish we'd stayed longer - especially with the Berg House as such a great home base. We appreciated the great communication from Svein as well as the tips on things to see and do.

Great Location, Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed at the Berg House for a week with our family. Our daughter was in a wedding there and we had babysitting duties during that time. The house comfortably accommodated my husband & I, our daughter & husband, a four year old and a four month old. We were pleasantly surprised to find a crib for the little one and a play area for the older one in the kitchen. The home was well stocked with paper towels, toilet paper, soap, etc. Plenty of towels for the bathrooms. We could walk to the local Co-op for great deli selections and food shopping. Thanks Svein - it was a wonderful mini vacation.

Nice classic house great location

  • 5 of 5

The Berg house is a very nice house in a great location. We really enjoyed staying there with our children and grandchildren. The neighborhood was safe and nearby school, playground and tennis courts were a plus. The easy walk to businesses and locations, especially Grand Avenue was great. The house is well appointed with everything you need including nice bedding, towels, soaps, kitchen appliances and utensils, internet, TV, etc. House was very clean and caretaker friendly and very helpful.The house is very convenient by car the the local metro area. Great value compared to motel or other lodging. We recommend Berg House and will come back if we can.

Perfect house for a stay in St. Paul

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable house for a family gathering in St. Paul. It was perfect for our visit while attending our son's graduation from Macalester College. Close to restaurants and shops. Great Co-op nearby. This house has everything you need! Highly recommended.
