Abandoned Shack is a small dwelling located in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
It is an old, desolate house. The shack is inaccessible from the outside before starting the quest "With Friends Like These...", as the key is needed to enter the shack.
The Dragonborn was taken here by the Dark Brotherhood after completing the Innocence Lost quest and receiving a Mysterious Note from a Courier. The key required to leave the shack is received after completing "With Friends Like These..." or "Destroy the Dark Brotherhood!".
The Dragonborn meets Astrid who commands him/her to kill one of the three victims in the shack (Fultheim the Fearless, Alea Quintus, or Vasha). The choices are to follow her command and receive an invitation to join the Dark Brotherhood, or attack her, initiating the quest "Destroy the Dark Brotherhood!".
- Should one return to the shack at any time, the surviving NPC's will still be there.
- It may be the location for The Woodcutter's Wife.
- Upon leaving the shack a row boat can be seen on the edge of the water, implying Astrid rowed the Dragonborn through the marsh.
- Items stored in the chest and drawers may disappear.
