Prior to the quest A New Source of Stalhrim, the door is locked and cannot be picked. However it can be unlocked with opening the Console (the button right under ESC) and typing in unlock after targeting the door by clicking on it. There are a couple of bear traps on the east side and a knapsack.
- Grindstone on the porch.
- The interior of the lodge is just a modified version of Alvor's house in Riverwood, and still has the "A Gentleman's Guide to Whiterun" on the table next to where Dorthe's bed used to be.
- This lodge is guarded by hostile Thalmor after the quest A New Source of Stalhrim has started.
