Key Takeaway

There are two places that can be considered Link’s house in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The first place is technically Princess Zelda’s house, which is located southwest of Hateno Village by Firly Pond.

The second place is a house that can be built on a plot of land southeast of Tarrey Town. When it’s built, it’ll be called “Link’s House.”

If you want to find Link’s house in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, there are two places you should look. The first leads you down memory lane to a quaint home from the past and the second brings you to a plot of land brimming with potential.

    Where to Find Link’s Old House

    If you go to Hateno Village, you’ll find Link and Zelda’s old house to the southwest; across the bridge that overlooks Firly Pond. The closest fast travel point is Zanmik Shrine. From there, you can take a quick stroll to this cozy home.

    What’s Important About Link’s Old House?

    There are two points of interest in and around Link’s old house—or should we say Zelda’s house? It’s definitely more of the latter, although it’s heavily implied that Link and Zelda spent a lot of time here together.

    Inside the house, on the upper floor, you’ll find Zelda’s Diary on a table. When you read it, you’ll learn about Hateno Village as well as the surrounding area and Link and Zelda’s relationship.

    Once you’ve explored the inside of this house, take a look out back to find Zelda’s Secret Well. Down this well is another of Zelda’s Diaries and a chest containing a piece of headgear called a Well-Worn Hair Band. It doesn’t do anything, but it looks nice!

    Reading the diary down the well begins a side quest called A New Champion’s Tunic, which leads to—what else—a new tunic.

    Where to Find Link’s New House

    Link’s House isn’t built yet. You need to head to Tarrey Town and speak to Hudson and Rhondson at the Hudson Construction site to begin a quest called “Home on Arrange” that’ll eventually let you build a brand new home.

    Afterward, head to Rasitakiwak Shrine to the southeast of Tarrey Town. You can find it by heading east out of Tarrey Town and following the road south.

    Close to this shrine, you’ll find an open area and a stall operated by Grantéson—who’ll sell you building materials. Breathe in the fresh air and savor the potential.

    While there isn’t much in the ways of quests and loot at Link’s house in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, there’s another important reason to check out this plot of land: creating your dream home. While TotK can’t match games like Minecraft when it comes to house-building, you can still get a lot of satisfaction out of drafting and designing a lovely abode. It’s the perfect place to take a pleasant nap in between slaying horrific monsters and undertaking grueling fetch quests.
