Traveled with my 2 teenagers and we had a room with private bathroom. The room is best described as a charming log cabin with all the amenities expected. We had a comfortable sleep. The next morning we had a nice breakfast at restaurant located on the upper level of the main holding. The breakfast spread was good and the restaurant overlook the small cow farm. Photographs and posters lined the walls which detailed the rich history of Efstidalur farm.
We stopped here after visiting several waterfalls. The food was delicious and fresh. Several of our party rode horses while a few stayed back and caught up on computer work. It was a true Icelandic farm experience
We had a wonderful stay, eating while the cows enjoyed their own dinner and breakfast outside the dining room window and talking with one of the owners about the fascinating new age in dairy farming and learning about the history of this multi-generation farm family.
Lonely Planet describes the rooms as adorable but our room definitely wasn't one of those. I think they were talking about the log cabin block with private bathrooms. Ours was one of 4 with shared bathroom situated in a large "shed". It was off an unwelcoming and dark corridor and was tiny and cell-like but without the window bars and the 1 shower was equally cell-like. There was only 1 bathroom and toilet between 4 rooms - not a good ratio with 8 people wanting to use them at once. The linen and towels were adequate. Luckily we had the side of the "shed" with lovely views which was a plus. The restaurant was pleasant and the food very tasty and the breakfast consisted of a good variety of choices. There was a hot tub which wasn't operational one of the days we were…
I was still full from the beautiful lunch we had at Freidheimar Farm but I had this on my list of places to stop! Luckily, my teenage son was in need of creamy dessert and this was the perfect place! He thoroughly enjoyed a bowl mocha ice cream!! The dogs on this property are also well-behaved and friendly!
