Two-night stay in late July. Very quiet location about 25 minutes from the center of Bogarnes. Despite several families with young children also staying in the house we had a very quiet stay. Dinner was excellent and, although options were more limited than other places we'd stayed, breakfast was good too. Biggest downside is the distance to Bogarnes and activities out on the peninsula. Not a deal breaker but something to keep in mind.
