missed vines...

You carefully work your way up the path, mindful of the vines, and finally arrive at the back door of the house. Off to the right, covered by weeds and vines, and not visable from more than a few feet is a flat door to a root celler. There is also a window off to the left. The house is made of stones, and although the window is high, you could climb up to it pretty easily. The window is covered by shutters, but it's impossible to tell if they are latched or not.

Dig throught the vines and weeds to get into the cellor.
