Bakkastofa - Our House

Búðarhamar, is one of the distinctive early 20th century houses in Eyrarbakki. It was built by a well to do entepreneur Andrés Jónsson in 1916 to accomodate his family as well as the general store he opened on the ground floor.

 

A man with a keen view on the future, Andrés had his new house wirered for electrical power not yet available in Eyrabakki. This didn´t stop our man who one day hauled a machine from his boat and lit his new castle up under the thundering beat of the motor. The first illuminated house in Eyrarbakki was a now a fact and people travelled to see the wonder.

 

It is a true privilege to live and work in this wonderful building. We love to receive guests and have them experiencing our own slice of Iceland culture and history.
