Echoing everyone else who has stayed here: we loved this place. We were a family of seven adults and stayed for six nights in late June. With the vaulted ceilings and open floor plan, the house never felt cramped. The kitchen is well-equipped and capable of handling meals for seven people (including a college aged boy). The bedrooms are roomy and very comfortable. The hot pot, wide deck, gas grill, and clothes dryer are all extra perks that make this house a perfect headquarters for a family vacation.
From the cabin we were able to get beyond the armada of tourist busses and selfie-sticks that make up the golden circle (except Thingvellir - must see, despite the tourists), and experience many quieter areas of southwestern Iceland: Husafell (and the F550), Landmannalaugar, Heimaey, and Vik.
The owner, Robert, was available by phone and helped resolve several crises -- getting locked out, messed up ferry tickets, -- that kept situations from becoming problems. I've read reviews complaining of the cleaning policy, and I don't share that sentiment. It is a lovely house and easy to maintain. We rented a house in Reykjavik after leaving the cabin, and wished that the owner had had a similar policy.
The title says it all. Six of us had an excellent week staying at this wonderful cabin. You'll be pushed to find anywhere better. A few more fish wouldn't have gone amiss though ;)
Highly recommended! We had a lovely stay here, the lodge was spacious and homely with lots of dvds and videos for entertainment when not spending the night in the hot tub enjoying the views. With mountain views surrounding the lodge it really is breathtaking. The cabin was well equipped and warm and cosy. Great location, close to some big tourist spots and there's an amazing mountain drive if going to Reykjavik. Only problem we had was finding the lodge !
Thanks Robert for all your help, one of the most friendly and nice people that you could hope to rent a home from. The cabin was amazing and the views that we got with all the snow that iceland had were amazing. The log cabin is exactly as described and perfect for going round the golden circle. Thanks again Scott.
Located just north of Selfoss, the cabin was easy to find, very peaceful, clean and a great place to stay. A good location for exploring the golden circle and south coast and not too far from Reykjavik.
Cabin is well laid out, has everything you need and the hot tub is fab. Accommodates 8 people very easily, was warm and had beautiful views across the valley.
TIP - the bed linen needs to be collected from the Northern Lights inn near the Blue Lagoon which is not close by. Need to check you have the right amount of linen.
Booked this cabin for my family of 5 adults. Loved the fact it was out in the middle of the golden circle area, but also because it was out away from the city. We arrived, picked up our linens, and headed out...had no trouble finding it, unlocked the door and all I can say is WOW!!!! Everyone fell in love with this place! It is well kept up, in fact it looks quite new, beds were SO comfortable and everything you would need, is already in the place! Large bathroom in the main cabin, and a half bath in the smaller guest house. Each night after dinner, we got the Monopoly game out and played until we couldn't play any more..then headed to the hot pot in hopes of seeing the Northern lights..however it was snowy or drizzly so we didn't see them..but still was a great time! The only negative thing I have to say is I am sad we couldn't stay longer here!! Thank you!! Ohh and the owner is VERY good at communicating when you reserve it and even gives you many ideas of things and places to see!
amazing place to stay......even saw the lights dancing outside the cabin on our final evening................bucket list :)
