It's a really cool place - we got to stay in Odin's loft, which was the Viking ship. The place was very clean, the bed and the air mattress were both really comfortable, and the jacuzzi bath was relaxing. We were the only ones staying the night we were there, and I think that's why we didn't get to dress up or anything, despite us having asked several times.....at one point, we just started trying stuff on that was displayed in our room, only to find out that stuff was for sale (no pricetags on anything)....but we didn't know because we hadn't been told anything and there was no tour for us. He just kept saying he had stuff we could try on, but he was tired from the weekend and the phone kept ringing off the hook, so he was very busy. I was disappointed in that. I got the impression this place was more for people looking to party & drink all night at the bar there. As a family with two kids, that obviously was not what we were looking for.
That said, I was glad we got to try this place for a night. I had never stayed at a B&B before. Steinarr, the host does it all himself, and is a jack of all trades. We did enjoy his homemade rootbeer on tap, and I was most impressed with his food - OMG everything was phenomenal!!! The food was all from scratch and he uses a lot of fresh food from his garden, fresh blueberries for the muffins. They were huge portions too - I ate more than I should've and wished I could've eaten more!! We ate supper around 8 after apps, as he said we would, and breakfast was ready at 9. We were given dull knives to eat with, which was great because we got to eat Viking style! We were thrilled that he put real effort into our meals, especially since we were the only ones there. He even made his own oatmeal soap which smelled wonderful, and the Viking stuff he had for sale looked professionally made, even though he said he did it all himself - also impressive! Had there been pricetags on stuff, I would've been inclined to buy a souvinir...
The meals were reasonably priced, as was our room. Overall, it was worth the money for a unique atmosphere and fantastic food.
