Peaceful winter escape to Icelandic countryside

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
We spent three peaceful and lovely nights at this cottage in late November, and can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. The landscape surrounding the cottage was beautiful, and had it not been cloudy, I'm positive it would have been a perfect vantage point for viewing the Northern Lights. The interior was cozy, and we particularly loved the living room with the fireplace, stereo, and bookshelves. And since the weather was chilly, we definitely made the most of the outdoor hot tub!

On top of being a comfortable, and impeccably maintained home, we greatly appreciated the help of the owner Thorhildur, and her daughter Oddný. Oddny helped us coordinate our trip, recommended places to visit in Reykjavik, and Thorhildur waited patiently for us at the cottage when we were delayed by weather. To top things off, a neighbor lent us a power cable for our phones when we realized our power adaptor was the wrong kind. I felt so taken care of and appreciated the genuine kindness of our hosts.

As for the location, it was perfectly situated between the Geysir and Thingvellir, which allowed us to experience the Icelandic countryside away from other tourists. We hope to return one day to experience the area in the summer months, though I have to say that the winter is absolutely wonderful!
