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.

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!!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We were a curling team in town for a tournament. The place was walking distance to the St. Paul curling club and everyone had their own room and space. Beautiful place!

Family Friendly Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Clean older home with charm. It was an easy transition for our small children when they saw the toys & play kitchen! The house has a nice layout for having meals with a large family and the pocket doors helped contain the children to first floor. We had almost everything we needed for cooking. Beds where comfortable and my baby loved the crib. The big bathroom upstairs is nice and the tub with shower handle made cleaning the babies much easier. The tub is very old and need to be resurfaced though. We were able to park one car in garage which was excellent. overall great stay we will consider staying in this property when we visit Saint Paul next time .
