The Door into the Last Homely House(ne, nw, w, e, s, se, n and sw)

You are standing before a giant house with a large porch, that wraps around the front. This is the home of Elrond and the many elves who live in the valley of Rivendell. It is surrounded by beautiful gardens, and you can smell the scent of flowers around you.
The path continues west.
The Last Homely House is to the east.
Black clouds torment the sky, as a drizzle begins.
The only obvious exits are northeast, northwest, west, east, south, southeast, north and southwest.
