      ideal getaway

      The house fit our family of 13 perfectly. Jakob was quickly helpful with a small repair and informed our family of the history in the area. It was a relaxed place to unwind, enjoy and feel at home. I would recommend it to those traveling the Golden Circle.


      Could be suitable for family group

      It was comfortable but was presented as appropriate for a large group of ladies; it was better suited for a family group. Two of the three bathrooms are located in bedrooms, so if you were not staying in that room you had to enter it to use the bathroom, and one door didn't shut, day two the owner did fix once brought to his attention. The appliances did not have instructions and were in Icelandic. The owner would come in the facility without knocking, an uncomfortable situation for a group of ladies. He also was working on the outside during the day, so you would not have been able to sit quietly and read a book. The lighting throughout the facility was dim, once again you could not read in this light. The building was too hot upstairs where the bunk house style sleeping quarters were, owner said not to turn the heat down but to open the windows; it rained through the windows onto the beds.

      4/5 Good

      Great house, quiet location

      The house is large, has good places to gather and is in a beautiful location. On our stay the house needed some work, one of the showers did not work, which was difficult with six adults -(a partial refund would have been in order, since we had counted on the three bathrooms). It would be helpful to have a book of directions for the appliances. The second floor bathroom, is very dark and the bathtub is in the middle of the room, surrounded by beds. The location is fairly isolated, which we enjoyed. The property next door has horses, which we were able to visit and they were delightful.

      Millhouse Lodge is the perfect place for a large group to enjoy the beauty of Iceland!

      As a family of 11 traveling to Iceland for the first time, we were worried about finding a place that would be centrally located to “adventures” and offer a spacious place to unwind, enjoy family meals, play games, and more. Millhouse Lodge was perfect in every way!! There was a dining table large enough for our whole crew. There was a second table large enough to work on jigsaw puzzles in the evenings. The kitchen came fully equipped, and Jacob even offered the use of his spices. The hot tub was enjoyed many times after long hikes! The beds were very comfortable, and the bedrooms offered plenty of space. There was even a crib for the baby! We had so much fun in Iceland—hiking to waterfalls and a hot spring, enjoying a day at The Blue Lagoon, going whale watching, taking the Into The Glacier tour, snorkeling between tectonic plates, exploring black sand beaches (while keeping an eye out for sneaker waves), viewing the incredible beauty of the icebergs, and so much more!! You can enjoy all these things, and then have a lovely, comfortable place to rest back at Jacob’s cozy, relaxing home. We are thrilled we took this trip and so happy to have enjoyed Millhouse Lodge as our home base. Do not hesitate to stay here. It is a WINNER in every respect!!

      Stunning. Charming. Beautiful views. Like a Magazine cover shot.

      First I would like to say the hosts were amazing. They worked with us the entire time, answered questions and gave advice on the where to go's. They were so warm and welcoming and made us feel at home. When you first drive up, the first impression is WOW! Looks to be straight out of a magazine. it is beautifully decorated with a designer's eye, So warm, inviting & luxurious. It has a designer kitchen, beautiful large table with gorgeous chandelier. and a few great sitting areas. There is a room downstairs and a bathroom. One upstairs in the loft has a stand up tub you can relax in while looking out at the grasslands with the birds singing or open the sky lights and look for the moon or sun. 24 hours of daylight you can see both. Then the other room which had a glass enclosed walkway to get to had 3 walls of picture window. Like the other rooms it was decorated with the love and care of someone with that eye for design. She made this house a comfortable, welcoming a real charmer. The views were really stunning. Birds flying around. A river bend not to far away. You can see it from the upper level. And the black beach was close by. Kitchen is fully stocked with pans for cooking and plates, cups for a large group. As my 30 yr old daughter stated as she walked in "This is my dream house" Mine to. Mine to. :) Just lovely in every way. If you every get a chance to stay here you will love it.
