Goldenhills Plantation

Goldenhills Plantation is an abandoned farm east of Rorikstead. The farm is initially haunted, but you will be able to claim it as your own once you've put the spirits to rest. The farm has various exterior construction options, and you can hire a personal steward to manage the farm's production and buy upgrades for the farmhouse interior.

The Child's Bedroom and the Library/Display Room are exclusive, as they occupy the same room. You can switch from the Library/Display Room to the Child's Bedroom for 500 gold. However, once selected, you cannot change the Child's Bedroom to the Library/Display Room.


  • After buying all upgrades, the steward can be fired and rehired as much as you like. An active steward cannot be asked to follow you (as opposed to Hearthfire stewards), so they must be fired to do so.
  • Though you can't collect gold while you have no steward, profits will still accumulate over time despite not having a steward assigned. Simply hire a steward to collect all the money.
  • Not all containers can be used as safe storage. The two barrels by the big mead barrel in the cellar (i.e next to the hidden enchanter/alchemy table room), both examples that are NOT safe.
  • The plantation has a total of 38 plots of Fertile Soil (27 in front of the house, 11 on the side of the house). By building the large planter you gain an additional 6 plots of Fertile Soil, bringing the total of available plots of Fertile Soil to 44.
  • Dogs can be told to guard the farm.


  • Purchasing the Alchemy and enchanting lab and entering the house may crash the game.
    • Purchasing this upgrade last seems to prevent this.
  • Kids and pets do not recognize the farm as a home. However, Hilda (the goat follower) goes there if the player commands it.
