Situated in the picturesque Gimli on the west side of Lake Winnipeg, you can enjoy a fun getaway. The Modern Icelandic Cottage on Airbnb is the ultimate summer weekend getaway that you'll never want to leave.

Just a short walk from the beach, the two-bedroom retreat can comfortably sleep up to four guests.

What makes this cottage so unique, is its fun Icelandic theme. Inside there are themed accent pillows, art, and even the bedding is what you'd find in Europe.

You'll even get to try some pancakes, called Pönnukökur, that you'd find in Reykjavik. 

They provide the recipe so you can start your day with some delicious crepe-like pancakes. We love this fun way to start your morning, as one of the best parts of travelling is trying new foods.

Meanwhile, outside is a real paradise. The deck has a screened gazebo with a massive sectional perfect for lounging with friends, and there is an outdoor kitchen with a BBQ and fridge.


Chances are when you think of visiting Reykjavik; you picture soaking in the Blue Lagoon. Although much smaller, this Airbnb does indeed have a covered hot tub surrounded by twinkling lights where you can relax.

The hosts did a great job giving you everything you might need. Not only is Netflix and wifi included so you can stream movies in the living room, but there are some surprising features too.

For example, one of the bedrooms has eye-catching, LED glowing lights.
