Property type cabin

About the property

You will be surrounded by tranquility and stunning natural beauty in the cottage. It´s just like time stands still when you stay in the countryside cottage, where nature alone are playing the leading role.

From the cottage you have view over the lake "Meðalfellsvatn" where you can see people fishing surrounded by playful waterfowl. Beautiful mountain range (including Meðalfell) surrounds the lake .

The area is ideal for outdoor activities for adults and children. The cottage is warm and with a big garden. You having relaxed night in comfortable hot tub is a good way to tread yourself after energetic day.

For 4 people you have enough space but the cottage can accommodate up to 6 people on request.

Kids can have fun in the garden with trampoline(may,june), play soccer, hot tub, swings.

You're going to feel well in the cottage with just a short distance from Reykjavik (about 37 minutes) but far enough to have true countryside experiance. The location can offer you the best seat to see playful aurora lights (without any street light pollution from the city) from august to april in the sky just above you, sitting in the hot tub is recommanded instead of NL bus tour :).

Only about 1 hour 20 min from the KEF airport. Welcome, Lilja

Beautiful cabin in beautiful surroundings!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six had a fantastic stay! The cabin was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Outside of the cabin we were treated to a large deck and hot tub from which we were able to watch the Northern Lights. The views from the cabin are amazing and overlook a beautiful lake and mountains. My children enjoyed the swings and soccer nets in the backyard. The cabin is in a perfect location, just a short drive to many fun adventures, but remote enough to make you feel like you have this magical land all to yourself. Lilja and her family take pride in their cabin and it shows. She is very prompt in her responses, provides tons of helpful information and suggestions for day trips, and does everything she can to ensure a perfect visit. Thank you, Lilja, for a wonderful stay!

very nice and cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

nice secluded cabin, with good views of a lake and mountains. 2 bedrooms with one large (queen?) size bed in each, plus 2 bedrooms with single bunk beds. Hot tub was a real treat at the end of the day - just wished it stayed warmer longer once you got in. Kitchen is small but we made it work. Definitely requires some planning, like buying groceries and fuel on the way, and who is in charge of the cooking. Overall, very satisfied and would highly recommend.

Relaxing and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The cabin was in the perfect location for day trips. We stayed for 7 days and it felt like home. We weren’t ready to leave! The cabin is just as nice as the pictures portray and everything we needed for cooking, laundry, showers etc were available. We especially loved the hot tub at night to relax in after our long day trips. We got a glimpse of the northern lights our last night there. Iceland is a beautiful place and we plan to come back in the summer!

Wonder cabin. Wonderful addition to our Iceland trip.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the cabin. The cabin was clean, comfortable, well equipped, and very peaceful. Hearing the horses and birds at night. Watching the stars. Walking on the country roads where the cabin resides seeing the horses and enjoying the streams. All added to our wonderful vacation in Iceland. The location is convenient to the sites but you get away from it all in your own space at night. Lilja is the perfect host. Always available via phone if needed. She really wants you to enjoy Iceland and her cabin. Thanks Lilja for sharing your little peace of heaven with us. We hope to return someday!
