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 Minnesota

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.

Comfy, charming and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We were completely at home at the Berg house. Everything was as expected, Svein was warm and hospitable, and Ray was on call in case anything went wrong-- and not a thing went wrong. Highly recommend this great pied a terre in St. Paul.

Perfect!

Property was in a perfect location for us. Nice house, very spacious bedrooms, updated kitchen. Easy access, and instructions we received were easy to use. We enjoyed our short weekend stay in Minneapolis even though it was cold and rainy!!!

Very pleasant and well-appointed.

This was an excellent place to stay. Very comfortable, clean, within walking distance of a coop, restaurants, stores, and a small park, quiet, with a small private sunny back yard. The host was very helpful and responsive. Would stay here again.

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Berg House is a wonderful home with plenty of room and in a safe, convenient location. I stay at the Berg House when I come to St. Paul for the Mitchell Hamline Hybrid JD Program, and the Berg House has offered spectacular accommodations. Kudos and Thank You!!
