Brunnhóll Guesthouse is owned and run by Sigurlaug Gissurardóttir and Jón Kristinn Jónsson. They bought the farms at Árbær and Brunnhóll in 1980. In the early years it was run mainly as a dairy farm, to which the newcomers added a small stock of sheep. Sheep farming was discontinued in the middle of the 1990s. Sigurlaug and Jón Kristinn started operating tourist services at Brunnhóll farm in 1986. Demand was great from the beginning and over the years Brunnhóll Guesthouse has extended to its current state. Second generation of the family has taken over the dairy farm, giving Sigurlaug and Jón Kristinn the opportunity to commit themselves entirely to the wellbeing of their guests.
