Key Takeaway

You cannot find Lakeview Manor unless you have already built it. The plot of land on which you can build Lakeview Manor is found between Falkreath and Riverwood.

Lakeview Manor is one of the homesteads in Skyrim that you can build once you’ve purchased the appropriate land plot from the Jarl of Falkreath. Prior to building, Lakeview Manor is simply a scenic plot of land.

    How to Purchase Plot for Lakeview Manor

    The Jarl of Falkreath.

    To Purchase the plot needed to build Lakeview Manor, you must gain the favor of the Jarl of Falkreath. The Jarl can be either Siddgeir or Dengeir of Stuhn, depending on where you’re at in the Civil War questline. Either way, you’ll need to become the Thane of Falkreath to buy land in the area. This is done by completing specific requests given to you by the Jarl.

    Once the quests are completed, and you’ve proven yourself to be a good citizen in Falkreath by helping three other citizens, speak with either Nenya or Tekla. They will offer the land to you for 5,000 gold.

    Once you’ve purchased the plot for Lakeview Manor, you can follow miscellaneous quests that will ultimately lead you through building your manor. You can always get extra materials required, such as Clay, Quarried Stone, and Sawn Logs, from nearby deposits or sawmills.
