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 Summit - University

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.

Lovely house with tons of character. Great neighborhood with lots of options for dining and drinking close by. House was spacious with great amenities. The Bergs have a wonderful home.

Spacious and Clean! Great location

  • 5 of 5

The first homeowners we booked with canceled with less than a 24 hour notice. Svein was kind enough to allow us to stay there on extremely short notice. The house had lots of room and everything we needed. The location was convenient to head to the Mall of America and the Science Museum. We would stay here again.

I’d definitely go back. Great neighborhood. Good sleeping arrangements for 5. Great location within walking distance of anything you’d want. 10 min drive to Xcel. Awesome trip.

Beautiful home and great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a small group work retreat and had a great time. The house is in a great location, walking distance to many shops, restaurants and grocery. It is very spacious and more beautiful than the pictures show. Everything was very well stocked and sparkling clean. We would definitely stay there again and the host is very quick to respond and helpful.

This is the 3rd time we’ve stayed in the Berg House (2 thanksgivings & a wedding) & every time has been a joy. A very easy place to come back to!
