The Old Man's Cabin,[1] also known as the Woodcutter's House,[2] is a location in Breath of the Wild.

Features and Overview

The Old Man's Cabin is a small cabin based in the southwestern region of the Great Plateau. The Old Man's Diary can be found inside, which contains the Recipe for Spicy Meat and Seafood Fry.[3][4] If Link prepares the dish for the Old Man, he will be rewarded with the Warm Doublet.[5] If the Armor is not obtained either by giving the Old Man the dish or by visiting Mount Hylia, a Treasure Chest containing it will appear inside the Cabin.[6] As Link progresses through the Plateau, the Old Man's Diary will update accordingly.[7] A Cooking Pot can be found outside the Cabin, as well as Barrels including a giant Barrel in which Link can hide.

A Korok can be found hiding atop the roof of the Old Man's Cabin.





  • If the Warm Doublet is obtained by giving a Spicy Meat and Seafood Fry to the Old Man or by visiting Mount Hylia, the Treasure Chest containing it will not appear inside the Old Man's Cabin; however, the Sheikah Sensor+ will still detect it even though it cannot be reached.

  3. "On this desolate plateau, the only pleasure that brings me comfort is cooking. And today, I outdid myself! Truly, I created the perfect dish. I call it... spicy meat and seafood fry." — The Old Man's Diary (Breath of the Wild)
  4. "Ah, and I will now write down this perfect recipe so that I will never forget it. Place some raw meat, spicy pepper, and hyrule bass in a pot, and then turn up the heat. Voilà!" — The Old Man's Diary (Breath of the Wild)
  5. "Sadly, on this lonely plateau, I have only my own knowledge and memory to rely on. Still... If I did find someone who knew the missing ingredient, I would happily reward them with my warm doublet." — The Old Man's Diary (Breath of the Wild)
  6. "Ah, yes, one more thing. I have left the warm doublet here as a gift of sorts. I'm sure it will be useful on your journey." — The Old Man's Diary (Breath of the Wild)
  7. "To my surprise and delight, I did happen upon someone who was able to re-create my spicy meat and seafood fry. I gave him my warm doublet, and I was happy to do so. He is a fine young man with great potential, that one." — The Old Man's Diary (Breath of the Wild)
