There is a food barrel in the western corner. Against the northwest wall is a dresser with a bunch of lavender on top and a green apple on the floor in front. In the northern corner is a small square wooden table and two chairs, with a bottle of alto wine, a bottle of wine, a salmon steak, a loaf of bread and an eidar cheese wedge on the table and hanging from the ceiling above are two garlic braids, two bunches of elves ear and two bunches of frost mirriam.

There are a pair of double doors to the southeast that open into a bedroom consisting of two single owned beds in the northern and eastern corners, with a medium coin purse and bottle of Nord mead under the eastern one and an unlocked chest containing minor loot, at the foot of the northern one. There is a wardrobe containing clothes and a barrel with an apprentice locked strongbox on top against the southeast wall. On the southwest wall is a wall shelf holding a bottle of wine and copies of Alduin is Real, An Explorer's Guide to Skyrim, Of Fjori and Holgeir, Cats of Skyrim, Watcher of Stones, A Gentleman's Guide to Whiterun, Horker Attacks and A Dream of Sovngarde.


  • Northeast of the stables, the ruins of a small, round tower can found nestled among the rocky ledges of a large hill. Within the fallen walls sits a satchel and a Shrine of Zenithar atop a stone table, next to a long-dead skeleton.
