Must love Sheep
We loved having the sheep up on our porch and grazing around the cabin. They recommended amazing places to go to where there are few tourists, including great trail right starting right at farm.

Clean and comfy!
This was a great stay on our trip around Iceland. The cabin was clean and well-equipped for our needs. We were able to relax and make a nice dinner after a lengthy day of driving. We also enjoyed quiet, comfortable sleeps. The breakfast provided the next morning was plentiful and varied. It was a cosy spot where we could linger over a coffee and marvel at the view. We would definitely recommend Guesthouse Skalafell to anyone making the journey to this part of the island.

Excellent place
Excellent place to stay. Clean and quiet. The breakfast is more than perfect. I would recommend this place to everyone. After our checkout, we did a big hike to the glacier right behind the hotel. When we got back, the owner served us a delicious coffee and pastry even though we had already checked out. Free of charge. She was just generous and kind.
