There are several snowberry bushes on either side of the front of the building. There is a short flight of steps leading up to the main door. When you first arrive in Dawnstar you can witness an interesting exchange between Skald and Brina Merilis with Horik Halfhand in attendance on the steps in front of the building.

Jarl's court

Upon entering you are at the end of the main room where the Jarl holds court. The Jarl sits on their throne during the day with their housecarl beside them. On either side of the room there are small round wooden tables holding bottles of wine and alto wine. There are two round firepits down the center of the room with the throne at the end on a slightly raised platform. There are two flights of stairs—one against the west wall and the other against the east, both of which lead to balconies and small bedrooms on the top floor. Under the stairs there is a doorway to the east and a door to the west. The west opens into the Jarl's bedroom and the east leads to the room used by the military advisor and where the court wizard Madena sells her wares. There are Dawnstar banners hanging from the walls above the throne.

Madena's stock

The doorway to the east leads to a room with six weapon racks holding a selection of iron weapons along the west wall with two barrels in front. There are two potions of plentiful stamina and three potions of minor healing on top of the barrels. On the ground by the northern barrel is a copy of the Enchanting skill book Catalogue of Weapon Enchantments. Against the north wall are a couple of straw bales with a practice dummy in front of them. To the right of the bales is a long wooden table with three bottles of Nord mead and a map of Skyrim marking the progress, if any, of the civil war. The military advisor will spend most of their time studying this. In the corner to the right are a couple of food barrels.

Along the east wall there is a large pile of firewood beside an unlocked chest. Above the chest, on top of a wall shelf, are several potions that can be bought from Madena (see notes). There are more food barrels in the southeastern corner. On your right as soon as you enter the room, against the south wall, is an arcane enchanter, with a wall shelf above it holding more potions sold by Madena. To the left of the enchanter is an L-shaped counter, with a bottle of alto wine, a large coin purse and some ingredients sold by Madena on top of it (see notes). Under the counter is a medium coin purse. Against the south wall behind the counter are two sets of shelves full of items sold by Madena (see notes).

The Jarl's bedroom consists of a king-sized bed in the middle of the room on a raised platform with four tall and one small wardrobe all containing fine clothes along the west wall.

Against the north wall is a long unlocked chest containing minor loot and to the right of this is a second round table and two chairs.

On the wardrobe there is a giant's toe, a bowl of glow dust and a bowl of frost salts. Farther along the east wall is a long unlocked chest containing minor loot. In the southeastern corner is a food barrel with a large coin purse and five loose coins on top. Next to it, against the south wall, is a set of shelves holding a goat cheese wheel, a goat cheese wedge, a copy of The Talos Mistake, a copy of Treatise on Ayleidic Cities, three lockpicks, a medium coin purse, a bottle of Nord mead, two bottles of alto wine and four bottles of wine.
