About Erla Berglind

My name is Erla Berglind and I am a classical singer. I am married and have 3 children and four grandchildren, 3 cats and five horses. I love to go to Borgarfjördur, stay in my cottage and go horse riding.

Why Erla Berglind chose Borgarnes

The cottage is comfortable, easy to reach and the location is great. This coming winter should be great opportunity to watch the northern lights because of increased activity in the surface of the sun.

What makes this cottage unique

In the wintertime it is great fun to go to the hot tub in the evening when the northern lights are dancing all around the cottage. And at the same time watch the beautiful stars in the sky.

What a great place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We all loved this house and would go back again anytime. It had everything that we could have possibly needed for our stay but unfortunately for us it was only 2 days. Erla Einarsdóttir and HomeAway could not have been any easier to work with. Thanks again.

Perfect for a family adventure!

  • 5 of 5

Erla's house was perfect for our 5 day trip to Iceland! we explored all over West Iceland and had a warm and snug place to return to. The kitchen was well equipped and we used it to make most of our meals. The neighborhood was quiet and we enjoyed the hot tub on the back porch after a long day exploring. The washer was invaluable after walking in snow, lava fields and across streams. Erla gave us some great advice on local attractions and was an excellent hostess. You can't go wrong with this cabin.

Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 2 nights in May and really enjoyed the cottage. Fantastic views from the front porch and from inside. Great location near Borgarnes, which has a fun pool and spa, and an easy drive to the incredible Snaefellsnes Peninsula.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The property is very spacious and very comfortable. We found it very clean and just as it was described in the listing. Erla was delightful and very helpful both before we travelled as well as when we arrived. We considered this to be the best of any of our accommodations while on our vacation in Iceland. Our family of 5 adults had plenty of room and we would definitely recommend it to anyone considering staying in this area of Iceland. We had a.great evening watching the Notthern Lights directly over the cottage

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

Erla's home was beautiful, warm, cozy, and wonderfully decorated. We (4 girls) stayed for 2 nights in order to explore the Snaefellsnes peninsula and the location was perfect! It is about an hour south of the peninsula, 10 minutes north of Bogarnes, and an hour or so north of Reykjavik. The house is extremely easy to find and on top of a mountain surrounded by several other summer homes although we did not see anyone around. The best part are the insanely beautiful mountain views outside the kitchen Windows. You feel like you are in the cozier cabin in the middle of nowhere surrounded by mountains. The house, beds, and linens were all very clean. It was the perfect place for us and can fit up to 6-7 comfortably. Beds were very comfy (best out of all 3 places I stayed in all of Iceland). Rooms spacious. The hot tub looked great with great views although we did not get a chance to use it. Overall it was a fantastic stay and I would stay here again 100% and recommend it to anyone looking for a central location on the western side of Iceland!

A perfect, relaxing, beautiful stay

We had a great time in Erla's nice house. The decor is great and we had everything we needed.

Everything is very clean.

After eventful days you can relax excellently in hot tub.

Erla was very friendly and gave us many tips.

In the environment , there is much to see and we had unforgettable days.
