After a challenging drive over the mountain on a dirt road and pea soup fog, we reached this little piece of heaven. It turns out we were the last reservation of the season and the only ones there. We had a wonderful time with Jon leaning about the farm and the artifacts displayed. A lamb dinner prepared by the chef was exquisite and breakfast was equally delicious. One highlight of our stay was the ewe coming up with two lambs (teenage lambs, not newbies) to get some grain and have her head scratched. Great fun! We’d love to return some day and explore more...pics of lams, ewe and dinner table
This was a unique experience on our roundtrip around Iceland. This place is so beautiful and well designed that it is hard to fathom. The old stables and family heirlooms are perfectly incorporated into the modern design of the guesthouse. Add to that a great chef with a true grandmothers instinct to never let anyone go hungry and you have a perfect little getaway for all those travel worn explorers ready to be spoiled.
This a perfect converted farmhouse, with lots of attention to detail Very clean, Remote, quiet location and yet close to N1 Scenery is outstanding Staff is friendly and dinner was perfect, great cook But the clean room was very small, with the luggage inside you could haedly move around. Also not well isolated rooms Still a great stay
This isolated converted farmhouse was one of our two favourites in Iceland. The construction and decor are modern, stylish and unique. Five guest rooms, together with large common spaces for dining and the owner's museum quality displays of arctic animals and Icelandic dress. The spa behind the buildings was welcome. My early morning walk in the valley between snowy peaks was exhilarating. Our two bountiful meals matched fine dining anywhere. And we got to meet a different set of interesting travellers than those we met in the large 'cookie-cutter' hotels. This was a treat.
Unique location among the fjords of Iceland. We were greeted by the owners who were a lovely and welcoming couple. When we drove up, we thought this is just another nondescript farmhouse almost in the middle of nowhere. But we were totally surprised by the sleek fine architecture. What was once a sheep barn was totally transformed into a fine boutique hotel. There are only 5 rooms but each is finely appointed. We opted to have dinner there and the chef did not disappoint!! Delicious fresh lamb perfectly prepared. Locally grown veggies and wonderful dessert, all served in a farmhouse atmosphere. Well recommended and truly memorable experience!!
