Cow House

The Cow House, located on Skeiðflöt, was once a cowshed, where cows were milked and calves fed. The cowshed was built in 1941 and was in use until 2003 when farming was stopped on the farm. Farmhouse Lodge reconstructed the cowshed into a guesthouse in 2018 and was ready for use in 2022.

Our rooms

Contemporary rooms with high ceilings, tall showers, white beds snuggled with Icelandic Sheep Blankets and amazing views over the mountains, glaciers and south shore. When the sky is clear Westman Islands are at the tip of your fingers.

Rooms without air conditioning, as we value and favour differential air conditioning systems that are aligned with our sustainability policy.

For heating the rooms and Cowhouse building, through underfloor heating, we use geothermal energy that takes advantage of the internal energy of the earth. For cooling and refreshing, we have windows that let in the North Atlantic breeze.

Reviews

Highly recommend!

This was a quaint little guest house and my favorite out of the 4 places we’ve stayed in Iceland (for reference we stayed at the Hilton and hotel Leifur in Reykjavik, Lambastadir, and Selfoss). We stayed at one of the 4 rooms by the reception area. The view from the dining area was pastoral. The receptionists were pleasant. It’s about a 10 min drive to the town of Vik which is not bad at all. Also about a 15 min drive to Skogafoss. They have a common kitchen that you can use to cook. The place felt very cozy and loved their little book corner.

Charming accommodation, great service

Charming and neat guesthouse with nice amenities. We had to re-schedule our stay a few times but the staff was always very positive, kind, flexible, and accommodating. I highly recommend this place!
The guesthouse is also conveniently located for exploring Vík and the surrounding areas.

Clean, friendly Lodge just a quick drive from Vík!

A nice lodge with very friendly staff! The rooms are very spacious and modern. Buffet area features coffee | tea available at all times, and seating areas with nice views.
The breakfast buffet itself was very nice, with phenomenal croissants to boot!
Laundry services are offered but are not typically available until the late afternoon/evening.
Vík is 15 minutes away, with the popular Dyrhólaey and Reynisfjara beaches within close proximity as well.

Best place to stay near Dyrhólaey

We really enjoyed a day in there. Breakfast was great with freshly baked bread and buns, there was NO shortage of hot water like in the hotel nearby and our room was really clean. If you care about making food yourself, there is also fully equipped kitchen to common use. 10/10, wish we could stay longer.The breakfast buffet itself was very nice, with phenomenal croissants to boot!

Fabulous hospitality!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Farmhouse Lodge. Such a serene setting, simple yet elegant decor, and the nicest hosts you can ask for. When we experienced car trouble, they went above and beyond to help out and make sure we were taken care of. We will be back!
