Kitchen with good facilities, dining area and living room with a fire place TV and radio. WC/shower.

My partner and I stayed at Graceland for two weeks. This is a very impressive cottage: very comfortable, beautiful and very well located. It is very well equipped and the views over the lake are amazing.

There are lots of nice places around and Borgarnes is just about 20m drive and has got several shops and cafes - we recommend the Settlement Centre.

The owners are really friendly and they were extremely helpful.

I highly recommend this place if you want a nice base in West Iceland to explore its amazing natural spaces.

We've been back in London for a week and we really miss 'our' home in Iceland.

The cottage is located in Skorradalur,a valley just an hour drive from Reykjavík. It is favourite for many Icelanders and has become one of the most sought-after cottage areas in Iceland due to mild and calm weather and exceptional nature. It has great hiking trails through forests and heavily grown areas,along the beach of lake Skorradalsvatn where you can also go fly fishing. Activities in the area such as horseback riding, playing golf until well after midnight in the summer and kick back in one e.g. the many geothermal pools in the area. Skorradalur is ideally located if you want to explore the west of Iceland as short trips can be made to Húsafell and the surrounding glaciers,waterfalls such as Barnafossar and Glymur and historical places like Reykholt, Borg á Mýrum, the walley of Norðurárdalur are well within an hour drive as is national park of Þingvellir. Day-trips to Snæfellsnes,Breiðafjörður and the southern part of the Westfjords show the best Iceland has to offer.

Golf: Nearest Golf course is in Borgarnes,one of the best in Iceland,there is about 20 min drive there from the cottage.
