Amazing private log cabin

Runar purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Runar chose Selfoss
Modern and spacious and in the perfect location to explore the Southern Coast, Golden Circle and the highlands. Close to Iceland's most famous natural and historic sites.

Good for golden circle
We were 5 people and all slept comfortably. I chose not to stay in Reykjavik for this part of our journey. There is so much driving if you want to see a lot of Iceland. We stayed for 2 nights and probably should have stayed for just 1 night because we had to go back and forth to Selfoss for our activities. Some small simple touches could have been an adapter for charging and already have the bed linens on the beds. Aside from that our stay was very comfortable, the host easy to get in touch with and it was a lovely small cabin.
Nice cosy cabin excellent location for Geysir and Gulfoss.
The cabin was in an excellent very quiet location for us. There were 4 of us and there was plenty of room. Well equipped for spending a few days. We used the heating and additional electric heaters and were very cosy. We managed to work out how to use the cooker and get Netflix eventually but better instructions would help others. We had a problem initially as the previous owner’s contact telephone details were listed in the cabin and on HomeAway site so she wasn’t best pleased when we contacted her as she hasn’t had the property for some time. Hopefully this is will be rectified now. There were a few minor issues that need sorting out in the cabin such as a light not working and wall heater not functioning but it didn’t detract from our stay. There were plenty of items presumably left by other guests that really helped such as condiments, spices, sugar, even toiletries! The cabin is within short driving distance of Gulfoss and the Secret Lagoon and minutes from Geysir.
Lovely property very close to geysir
Very nice property. Fulfilled all our needs.
Didn’t get to use the hot tub as it was totally covered in snow !
Perfect cabin right along the Golden Circle
Beautiful, peaceful setting and just around the corner from Geysir! Hot tub was great for enjoying the stars on a cold night and we even got lucky enough to see the Northern Lights over the mountain ridge. Was worried it would be difficult to find or drive to, but was right off the main road. Lovely cozy cabin!
Perfect Location, Warm and Inviting
The property was perfect for our family of five. Spacious, well-equipped, and a great place to land after long days of exploring.
The hot tub on the deck was exquisite for our tired muscles each evening, and made for a good place to stare at the stars and watch for the Northern Lights. We didn't catch them this trip, but with all of the other breathtaking scenery, we hardly missed them.
If you are reading this review, I implore you take a day to drive to the Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach. It's a long drive- 4.5 hours one way, but if you leave early, you will have plenty of time to explore. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and something that we will never forget.
Other highlights included lunch at the Fridheimer green house, Geysir park at night, Seljalandsfoss at night, and the Secret Lagoon in nearby Fludir. Don't waste your time and money on the Blue Lagoon. It's a tourist trap. Secret Lagoon is the oldest pool in Iceland and only a short 20 minute drive away in Fludir.
Thank you for letting us call your home, our home, for our stay in the south. It was lovely and unforgettable.
Amazing place amazing location
this lodge is perfect in every way! Perfect location, perfect layout although the stairs are abit of a challenge to come down after a few gins!! The hot tub was unreal on the evening looking out for the northern lights. We had two other lodgers which came in the form of mice! They were no problem at all and popped up to say hello from time to time. This place comes highly recommended for the golden circle. It’s perfect location and a trail walk to the Geysirs! We are looking to book up again next year. Can’t wait to go back :)
