Kast Guesthouse is located in the land of the farm Lýsudalur in Staðarsveit in Snæfellsnes. It‘s beneath the pass Lýsuskarð wich is a beautiful pass between Lýsuhyrna on the east and Ánahyrna to the west. The name of the guesthouse is drawn from a peaceful and grassy space above the guesthouse where the mares often cast their foals.
We opened our guesthouse in June 2011. We started with 16 rooms in our beautiful bequeathed family land surrounded by the ocean, mountains and of course with our horses, all the family being accomplished and passionate riders. In 2014, we inaugurated a new modern building with 11 beautiful rooms, increasing our capacity to 27 rooms in total.
Kast Guesthouse is a family owner and run, with the help (only in high season) of very experienced individuals from all over the world who fell in love with iceland and what it has to offer, and are willing to give you their best advice and recommendations on what to do and see in their backyard.
The bright, simply decorated rooms at Kast Guesthouse all have wooden floors and views of the surrounding nature. Guests can choose rooms with either private or shared bathroom facilities (shared between 2 rooms only). We also have now with the new building triple and family rooms to offer. Communal areas include a TV lounge and furnished, outdoor terrace for sunny days.
The guesthouse has an outstanding restaurant that fits 50 people. The delicious food is prepared in the kitchen of Kast with as many local and fresh ingredients as we can. Breakfast and dinner time can change depending of the season in order to adapt our guests travel pattern.
Beside Kast is a big camping site with excellent restroom facilities and showers. Part of the camping site also has electricity for trailer tents and motorhomes.
Accross the street, you can access to Lýsuhólslaug (there is an entrance fee around 1000 Isk), a pool with naturally carbonated geothermal water (excellent for your skin) that offers a big swimming pool and two small hot tubs with a fantastic view on the mountains behind our guesthouse. The pool is open in summer season only.
We look forward to welcoming you at Kast guesthouse.
