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 West Side

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.

                                                            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.

                                                            Great place

                                                            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.

                                                            Great place!

                                                            We have enjoyed staying here for the weekend. We had a competition very close by making this house such a blessing. Beds are so comfortable, house is cozy and well equipped. We will be back!

                                                            Place to come back to

                                                            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!

                                                            Beautiful home and great location

                                                            Lisa B.

                                                            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.

                                                            David A.

                                                            We were pleased that the home was just as pictured. A very charming home in a quiet neighborhood. It was close enough the a 5 minute Uber ride got us to the heart of downtown. A 15 minute drive and we were at the airport to drop our daughter off for her flight home. There was plenty of room for the 6 adults that were staying. If we are headed back to the Twin Cities we wouldn't hesitate in booking it again. The home was very clean and had everything that we needed.
