Nicely done house. The downstairs is really a shop and an empty front room, but the upstairs has numerous rooms all well laid out. None of the signs are in English so you rely on the guidebook which is included. Well worth a visit on...More

Who knew the first two-story house built in Iceland is only about 150 years old? It is well-curated and captures a time and place nicely (I assume!).

The history of the house and it's owners provides an interesting insight into their life and times. There is a large amount of content in the property and you can well imagine the people still occupying the house.
