Lakeview Cottages in the heart of the Golden Circle



Rest & Relax

Six new cottages built for privacy and unobstructed views, located in Austurey 1 by lake Apavatn. The sleeping area contains a ready-made double bed (160cm) which leads to a private bathroom with a shower. Each cottage has a kitchenette as well as a table and chairs for dining. The living room contains a smart flat screen television and a sofa where guests can relax and enjoy the view over the lake as well as the surrounding mountains and volcanoes Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull. In front of each house is a heated veranda with private garden furniture and barbecue facilities (gas grill).

Our story

A Sheep Farm by the Lake


Austurey has been owned by the same family since 1926 when Kjartan Bjarnason and Margrét Þorkelsdóttir bought the land for farming. Today the family still raises sheep as well as running a heating utility and water supply utility. Part of the lake Apavatn and the river Hólaá is also part of Austurey´s land, which is a popular place to fish. We are new in the hospitality industry but we built six cottages in the summer of 2017, and started welcoming guests on the 2nd of June 2018. We take joy in welcoming guests to Austurey 1 and accommodate them in the best possible way.   -Lárus & Magndís
