Meaning "English Lodge," this guesthouse by the Langá River, 6km (3 3/4 miles) outside Borgarnes, was built in 1884 by English fishermen and restored in 2007. With its nostalgic photos and quirky old furniture, Ensku Húsin has a worn-in charm lacking in most of Iceland's country accommodations. It's certainly not one of those exclusive fishing lodges with its own sauna, masseuse, and macrobiotic chef, but it makes up for it in character. The restaurant has a set three-course menu, usually reasonably priced and consisting of meat soup, fish, and dessert.
