Good summer at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse

The summer has been so good here at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse.
We have been fully booked almost everyday and the weather has been as good as it can get most days.
We have been able to dry our duvet covers and sheets outside most days. I love the fresh smell of it, when we take it from the clotheslines!

A wonderful time of the year has arrived!

We are getting ready for the summer season and looking forward to meet all our guests both the once who are coming to us for the first time, but it makes us especially glad how many of our former guests are returning this summer. We have just renovated the bathroom and are very glad how nice it looks.

New Year greetings from Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse

We send you all our best New Year greetings.

We are both well and looking forward to coming season with every day getting a little bit longer.
Even it is just January 13th we can easily feel/see the difference from day to day how the daylight comes earlier and lasts a little bit longer in the afternoon.
We took a little break in November and enjoyed sunny days in Florida. It was wonderful to relax a little before the Christmas season.

At Christmas we had wonderful family staying at our guesthouse. They decided to spend the Christmas together in Iceland as a part of the family lives in Germany and a part in USA.
Over the New Year another wonderful family from the USA stayed here.  We took out our sleds for the kids so they could enjoy sliding down our hills. What a fun they had playing in the snow for the first time in their lives!
Last night we had one of the most beautiful Northern Lights shows we get here, the danced exciting dances over our farm in all different colours.
Our guests who are leaving Iceland to day could not have had more exciting last night in Iceland, right here at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse!

It is a beautiful day today, a perfect winter day to be outside and enjoy the beauty of the country.

Hope your day will be wonderful!
Take care until next

The Northern Lights Season has started

The Northern Lights danced above Minna-Mosfell two nights ago! We have not seen them in August before. The lights went on for about two hours.
Our guests loved this unexpected show thoroughly.
Can anything be more exciting and romantic on your first night of your honeymoon!  Congratulations Courtney and Matt.
A honeymoon kiss!

This time of the year can be just beautiful. I took this picture last night from our patio at midnight. Our guests love to stay up late and enjoy the beautiful view from the guesthouse balcony at midnight!

Beautiful summer days at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse

We have had beautiful weather this week. Our guests have enjoyed different activities as the Golden Circle, going into a glacier, into a volcano or relaxed in different lagoons.
Some have enjoyed walking around in our neighborhood and enjoyed the beautiful nature. One of our guests took this beautiful picture in our neighborhood. Our guesthouse is in the background.

Our hot tub filled with warm geothermal water is our hidden treasure at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse.
The month of October we are going to celebrate the opening of the Northern Lights season by offering free Icelandic specialities in the hot tub such as to taste hákarl, a fermented shark and a snaps of brennivín which is special Icelandic -occasion alcohol shot, and the traditional drink for the mid-winter feast of Þorrablót.
Why do we like to do it outside?  Well, you will understand it when you find the smell!
The tub will be ready for our guests to use when they return home after their days excursions.

We at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse are looking forward to offer you to try the shark in the hot tub!
