Heartwood Mill is a lumber mill in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Heartwood Mill is located in The Rift hold, on the shores of Lake Honrich.

It is owned and operated by Grosta and Leifnarr, who live there with their son, Gralnach. According to dialogue with them, the mill is struggling financially, and Leifnarr is missing.

Grosta remarks that without him, the mill will not last more than a few seasons. She asks the Dragonborn to help locate Leifnarr, touching off the miscellaneous quest "Flight or Fight." It is patrolled by The Rift Guards.


Notable itemsEdit


  • There is a random encounter spawn point extremely close to the mill, on the road west of Grosta and Leifnarr's house. If the random encounter includes hostile NPCs, they may travel down the road into the mill and start attacking the inhabitants.
