The cottage is located near the owner’s farm with lovely views over the nearby stream to the mountains behind. It is around 12 Km from Egilsstaðir and is well situated for exploring the spectacular nature of East Iceland. The farm offers horse riding.
“Very nice host and very nice house! The landlord started to confirm the schedule with me many days in advance, asked me when I was going to, and prepared us for the quilt. Give us a lot of suggestions for the way to the house, everything! Arrived late, the host was waiting for us and greeted us. They also took us around the house and talked about where we put everything and how we could paint ourselves. A lot of paintings by the tenants who lived on the wall were very impressive. Moreover, the homeowner predicted that it would be possible to see Aurora today, but the result was indeed seen! It's great to see the Aurora for the second time in Iceland. When we left, we also took a walk with her dog to communicate with the horse. It was a pity that the snow was too thick to ride. In the evening I cut the lamb slices myself and ate the hot pot. She had a knife that worked very well. Most home stays have been blunt.”
This is one of three room in our beautiful accommodation at Mjóanes farm. It is 18 km. from town Egilsstaðir on road 931 at the south side of the lake on the way to Hallormsstaður the biggest forest in Iceland. The closest grocery store is in Egilsstaðir. Good paved road, passable all the year. Quiet, peaceful and beautiful landscape.
“We stayed only for one night, but it was wonderful and definitely made us want to come back. The place is in a great nature spot with a lake nearby. Elsa and Magnus have amazing property and were super welcoming. We also really loved the bread in the morning that Elsa made. It was a special treat. The place didn’t feel too crowded though all rooms were full. There are two bathrooms (one with a shower) so it helped to not have to wait to use one. The kitchen was nice and had everything we needed. Overall, it was one of our favorite places to stay on our trip. Thanks so much! P.S. their dog Guli is soooo cute and followed us around at the property. We loved him.”
My place is close to Jökulsárlón (Glacier lagoon), Fjallsárlón, Vatnajökull Glacier, Stokksnes with the black sand. You will love my place because of the closeness to the glaciers, spectacular mountains, the ocean and it is also very spacious. The house is good situated in the town Höfn. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids), family-friendly activities.
“Margret’s place was beautiful. We are a family of four and had plenty of room to spread out. The heated bathroom floor and towel warmer were a pleasant surprise. The kitchen is fully stocked and the washer and dryer came in handy after a few days travel. The neighborhood is quiet. Margret was easy to communicate with. Thank you for a wonderful stay.”
