We were a little concerned when we drove up to the guesthouse. There is litterally nothing else there. But the owner was very nice and the homecooked soup was excellent! They even have a bar there. There are two toilets, one with a shower that is shared with the guests in the house.
We had a beautiful cabin and the food was fabulous, but the best thing about this place is the people who run it, who are very interesting people and super-friendly. They’ll also give you advice about what to do and see in the area. It's also small enough so you can get to know other guests at meal time if you want to.
Of all the places I've stayed in Iceland, I loved this one the most. It's a restored farmhouse on the edge of a lake, with a new section added (very tastefully) to make a large, pine-walled eating and lounge area. I was there when it had been snowing, and the views over the lake and across the fields to the mountains were lovely and peaceful. The nearest other buildings are tiny in the distance; they too are original farm buildings, where the parents of the couple who run the guesthouse have lived all their lives. Our host was most friendly and generous with his time. He told us about sheep-raising in the area and showed a video of the annual round-up, with traditional clothes and songs. He also took time to chat with us about various aspects of life in Iceland, and generally made us feel like real guests. After a snow fall, he made sure it was easy for us to get out of the driveway by driving it himself so we could easily see where we were going. The location is perfect, half way between Lake Myvatn to the south-east and Husavik and Asbyrgi canyon to the north. We were able to explore both areas at leisure, and return to a comfortable night in the peaceful countryside and a tasty breakfast in the morning. I will be coming back here on my next visit to Iceland, no question.…
Very nice location in a farm. We were family of 5 and got two adjacent rooms. In compression to other accommodations we had along our 12 days in Iceland, here you pay the highest price, while standard things like WiFi and TV in the room were absent. Furthermore, after on (short) shower, the hot water run-out. On the positive side, the owners were very friendly and helpful and they have very nice and guest room in which you can spend your time.
A very quiet place to stay and central starting point to explore the surroundings: Husavik and its whales and "lundi", Myvatn, Godafoss and the North-East of the country. Each day, the tenant proposes a dinner (not included), and makes her own bread (tasty). This is one of the places where we preferred to stay during our trip in Iceland.
