THANKS to all who have provided feedback, endorsed, kudo'd, screenshoted and put the hideout as a File of the Month in May 2012.

A small, detailed, atmospheric hideout off the beaten path between Riverwood and Whiterun. If you don't mind getting your boots wet, the sound of waterfalls, and prefer a darker hidden place to kick up your feet and drop off your loot...this may be the home for you.

Should be lore friendly, ready for companions, full crafting and storage.
  • If anyone is familiar with my other mod Fallout 3 Mini Hideout. you may see some similarities, especially in style.
  • This was made using NebuLa1's version 1.4 of Skyrim HD 2k Textures. If your computer can handle it I recommend it to see what I saw when I designed it.
  • The hideout is very lighting specific so ENB mods or other lighting effects may make it too dark or flicker more.

Thanks to DARKFIREGAMING for creating a great video of the hideout:

(New Update) Thanks to GamerPoets for creating an even more detailed walkthrough and great video:
