The farm named Egilsstasir, which the much younger village on part of the farmland took its name from, is located at the most frequented crossroads in East Iceland. There were always numerous guests at the farm, so it was hardly an accident that a guesthouse was built there. In earlier centuries poverty often made it difficult to accommodate all the visitors coming to the premises, and in 1884 the resident Eir├şkur Halld├│rsson found himself forced to begin charging for accommodation in the farmhouses at Egilssta├░ir. This marked the beginning of guesthouse operations there, which have in fact continued ever since. In 1889, the couple J├│n Bergsson and Margr├ęt P├ętursd├│ttir bought the farm of Egilsstadir, thus beginning the history of their family at this place. J├│n is reported as saying: "The crossroads will be here", and that has certainly come true through the later growth of highways, the airport, and the village. Today, J├│n and Margr├ęt's descendants occupy five houses on the estate. Feel welcome to come and enjoy the lakeside tranquillity and beauty with us.
