The Hearthfire DLC is a great addition to Skyrim; it allows you to build a homestead of your liking at a location of your choosing. You have three options: Lakeview Manor, Heljarchen Hall, and Windstad Manor.
While all are great choices, Lakeview Manor offers a cottage in the forest with a great view of the lake. This article will show you where Lakeview Manor is in Skyrim and how to get there.
Where is Lakeview Manor in Skyrim?
Firstly, you won’t be able to find Lakeview Manor in Skyrim unless you have the Hearthfire DLC. If you own the Special Edition of Skyrim, all the DLCs come with it. However, if you’re playing vanilla Skyrim, it’s best to check beforehand.
If you own the DLC, you will have to talk to the Jarl of Falkreath first, and he will give you a quest to help the people of Falkreath. Once you complete this quest, he will make you a Thane and allow you to purchase property in Falkreath.
Once you purchase it, Lakeview Manor will appear on your map unexplored. It is located northeast of Falkreath and north of Pinewatch.
The thing is, Lakeview Manor does not appear on the map at all unless you purchase it first; so if you do not see it on your map, that is probably why.
How Do I Get to Falkreath?
Falkreath is located all the way south and west of Helgen on the map. You will eventually receive a letter from the Jarl of Falkreath by playing the game and completing the main quest. If you don’t want to wait, you can follow the road from Helgen.
When you pass by Pinewatch, be sure to explore it so that you can fast-travel there later. If you need another way of getting around, check out our guide on how to get and call your horse in Skyrim.
The Hearthfire DLC is a great addition to Skyrim, allowing you to build and customize your own homestead the way you want. You can choose from three different options – Lakeview Manor, Heljarchen Hall, and Windstad Manor.
Of these three locations, Lakeview Manor offers the most appealing view; it’s located northeast of Falkreath and north of Pinewatch near a lake. To access it, however, you need to have the Hearthfire DLC, purchase the property in Falkreath from the Jarl after completing the quest, and then fast-travel there when it appears on your map.
So if you’re looking for an idyllic location to call home in Skyrim, Lakeview Manor may just be what you’re looking for! Once you purchase the Hearthfire DLC, you can also begin mining quarried stone in Skyrim to build your magnificent estate in Lakeview.
