“Leah lives alone in a small cabin just outside of town. She loves to spend time outside, foraging for a wild meal or simply enjoying the gifts of the season. She’s a talented artist with a large portfolio of work… yet she’s too nervous to display it to the public. Maybe you can give her a little confidence boost?”
Dev Update #12

Leah is a villager who lives in a small cottage outside Pelican Town. She's one of the twelve characters available to marry.

She spends each morning sculpting inside her cottage. Her home opens at 10:00 AM, but players must first acquire two hearts in friendship before being allowed inside. The first time the player enters her cottage an event will be triggered, but only if she is at home at the time.


Shown below are Leah's schedules prioritized highest to lowest. For example, if it is raining, that schedule overrides all others.

Unless players have achieved at least two friendship hearts with Leah they will be unable to enter her cottage.

Heart Events

Two Hearts

Two Hearts.png

Enter Leah's Cottage when she's there.

You see her working on a sculpture. She discusses sculpting with you, and says "Once you get past the outer layers, the true nature starts to show..."
  • "It's the same with people." (No effect on friendship.) she agrees and says Oh! yeah, that's absolutely right!
  • "I actually prefer the look of raw, unadultered wood." (No effect on friendship.) She says that there's nothing wrong with that and that she thinks there's lots of beauty to be found in raw untouched nature. She goes on to say as a human, she is interested in how we shape and interpret the world around us, she explains this as she is interested in 'art'.
  • "(creepy) May I have a kiss?" (-100 friendship.)
    • If the farmer is male, she calls you a pig, punches you and kicks you out. The scene ends.
    • Otherwise, she acts surprised, saying "Oh! you're...? (blushing) Me too. That's good to know". Regardless of her blushing, she will hit you with her hammer and kick you out. The scene ends.
    • WARNING: if you choose this option, you can never see Leah's 8-Heart event. Because you were creepy and missed the chance to make a suggestion for her art career, it will not be possible to trigger either version of her 8-Heart event in the future.

She continues, "Although, I have to admit... It's not easy to pay the bills as an artist."

  • "Why don't you have an art show in town?" (No effect on friendship.) She muses that it could help make Pelican Town a true art destination, but says she'd be crushed if nobody liked her sculptures. She says she'll think about it, and thanks you for stopping by.
  • "Why don't you sell your art on the internet?" (No effect on friendship.) She notes that she would need a computer for that, but that they are expensive. She says she'll think about it, and thanks you for stopping by.

Four Hearts

Four Hearts.png

Enter Leah's Cottage when she's there.

You see her arguing with her ex-partner on the phone, who is asking her to come back to the city she left. After the call, she tells you her story and asks if it was selfish to move out of the city to be an artist.
  • "No, it had to be done." (No effect on friendship.) Leah responds, "You're right... I just wouldn't have been happy back there."
  • "No, and your ex sounds like an idiot." (No effect on friendship.) Leah responds, "That's a bit harsh... But yeah, we had different priorities."
  • "No, but you would've been better off staying in the city." (-20 friendship.)
  • "Yeah, a little." (-20 friendship.)
  • "Yeah, but it's natural to care about yourself first." (-20 friendship.)

Depending on your response in this conversation and the two-heart event, she'll either thank you for listening or briefly get angry. She tells you that she's been thinking about the art show or is saving for a computer, depending on your choice in the previous event.

Six Hearts I

Six Hearts.png

Leah is at your farmhouse door on any day but rainy between 6 AM and 11:30 AM.

Leah says she has a gift for you, and you receive the sculpture she's been working on. It's called How I Feel About <your name>.

Six Hearts II

Six Hearts.png

Enter Cindersap Forest when Leah is there, in any season except winter.

Leah is trying to reach a fruit from the large tree above the forest lake. She can't reach it, so you lift her onto your shoulders. She thanks you and says that if her art ever fails, you'll always be there to catch her.

Leah Seven Hearts Rain 1.jpg

Eight Hearts

Art Show

Eight Hearts.png

If you suggested an art show in her two-heart event, Leah is at your farmhouse door between 6 AM and 8 AM (except in winter) to invite you to her art show. Enter Pelican Town between 3 PM and 5 PM (not necessarily the same day).

You arrive to find many others already present. Leah is happy to see you and nervously starts the art show. She thanks everyone for coming. Leah says she came to Pelican Town to draw inspiration from the beautiful surroundings and confesses that it really feels like home now. She presents her sculptures.

"I haven't named this one, yet. She started out as an exercise in human anatomy, but I ended up seeing her through to completion. Her expression is intentionally unclear... is she embarrassed, amused, pained? I'll leave that for you to decide." (pause) "This one's called 'Post-Dimensional Nullspace'. It represents the boundary of human imagination. The shape and color came to me vividly when I was in a 'trance state'." (pause) "I've been calling this one 'Egg Heads'. I wanted to create an animatronic humanoid statue to toy with the viewer's ability to properly attribute personhood to a physical entity." (pause) "And the last one is called 'Wood Sculpture 3'. It's a celebration of my favorite sculpting material... wood."

Finally, she thanks her special friend (you), who gave her the idea for the art show and the courage to go through with it.

The villagers all praise Leah and her artwork:

  • Lewis: "I'm proud of you, Leah! Events like this really breathe life into our little town!"
  • Gus: "Great stuff!"
  • Demetrius: "I love your art, Leah! 'Post-Dimensional Nullspace' is my favorite."
  • Robin: "Great use of wood!"
  • Penny: "Thanks for doing this!"

Leah thanks everyone, Lewis starts the bidding on the art pieces, and as the scene fades, her ex, Kel, can be seen to the side. Afterward, Leah says she's exhausted but that the show was a success.

Art Website

Eight Hearts.png

If you suggested an art website in her two-heart event, enter Leah's Cottage when she's there.

Leah proudly tells you she bought a laptop and set up an online art shop like you suggested. Her computer plays a coin sound, and she excitedly says that means someone just bought something. She pauses and says there's a "Mr K" who keeps buying all her sculptures. She figures it must be "some rich guy" who loves her art. She thanks you for the idea and says it's been really successful so far, and is confident she'll have enough money to work on her art full-time now. She goes back to work on her store, tweaking the CSS sheets.

Ten Hearts

Ten Hearts.png

Enter Cindersap Forest between 11 AM and 4 PM, in any season except winter.

Leah says she knew you'd be passing through the forest, and surprises you with a picnic. She thanks you for helping her get one step closer to being a real artist, and you share a kiss.
Leah's ex-partner Kel comes out of the bushes. (Kel will be male or female depending on your player's gender.) Leah is annoyed and asks Kel what s/he is doing here.
  • If you suggested the art website, Kel says s/he found her online art store and says s/he's the "Mr K" who kept buying her sculptures. Leah is disappointed, because she thought it was a rich guy who truly loved her art. Kel says she was "half right", implying s/he doesn't care about her art. S/he asks her to come back to the city. Leah refuses, saying Kel was never interested in her art until she became successful.
  • If you suggested the art show, Kel says s/he came all the way from Zuzu City to see her sculptures and bring her back to the city. S/he claims to want their relationship to be the way it was before. Leah refuses, saying Kel was never interested in her art until she became successful.

Either way, an argument ensues. You can choose to punch Kel or reason with him/her. If you don't punch Kel, Leah does instead. If you do punch Kel, Leah says "That was pretty violent, (Name)."

Leah takes you to find a more secluded spot and admits the picnic didn't quite pan out like she'd wanted it to.

Group Ten-Heart Event

Ten Hearts.png

If the player is unmarried and has given a bouquet to all available bachelorettes, raised friendship with each bachelorette to 10 hearts, and seen each bachelorette's 10-heart event, then entering Haley/Emily's House will trigger a cutscene.

If the player has a Rabbit's Foot in inventory, the cutscene will consist of a gossip session about Mayor Lewis and Marnie's relationship.

If the player does not have a Rabbit's Foot in inventory, all bachelorettes will express anger about the player dating them all at one time. Regardless of the player's dialogue choice(s), all bachelorettes will decide to give the player the "cold shoulder" for about a week after the event. They will give angry dialogue when interacted with, and refuse gifts. After about a week, all bachelorettes will forgive the player, and dialogues return to normal.

This event will trigger only one time per save file. This event will not trigger if you are married or have given a Wilted Bouquet or Mermaid's Pendant to one of the marriage candidates.

Fourteen Hearts

Fourteen Hearts.png

Exit the farmhouse between 5am and 8:20am on a sunny day that isn't Sunday and isn't in winter.

Leah meets the player outside the farmhouse in the morning.

Part 2: The next sunny day (or any sunny day after that), enter the Forest between 11:30 am and 2:00pm.

Leah has asked you to paint a portrait of Marnie with her.

Leah asks you what style of portrait she should paint. "Hey, <your name>... what style do you think I should do? I'm up for anything..."

Leah shows you her painting, which is different depending on which option you picked. (Left to right: "Classic country portrait", "Colorful, retro pop-art", "Minimalist modern")

Leah's Paintings.png

You display your painting as well, which is less than flattering.

My First Painting.png

Leah tells Marnie that she can keep both paintings, but Marnie says that you should keep your first painting - and only takes Leah's.

The sequence ends, and you now have My First Painting in your inventory. Leah's painting will also appear in Marnie's bedroom.


Main article: Marriage

Once married, Leah will move into the farmhouse. Like other marriage candidates, she will add her own room to the right of the bedroom. She'll also set up a small area behind the farmhouse where she'll sometimes go to work on a sculpture.

On rainy mornings, Leah may offer you a gift she found while "mushroom-hunting": Chanterelle, Common Mushroom, Red Mushroom, or Morel. On mornings when Leah stays indoors all day, she may offer you Coffee or a gift grown in "a little pot out back": Wild Horseradish, Daffodil, Leek, Dandelion, Cactus Fruit, Fiddlehead Fern, Spice Berry, or Sweet Pea. She may also offer you a Salad on days when she stays indoors all day. On New Years' Eve (Winter 28), she'll give you a bottle of Wine.



First Meeting

“Hello, it's nice to meet you. You picked a good time to move here... The spring is lovely.”


“Hi. Oh, you want to talk? The landscape around here gives me a lot of ideas. The terrain is almost like a sculpture itself.

I don't make art for money. It's just an urge that I have. Farming seems like a very rewarding profession. You get to create delicious food for everyone! You're probably busy. Sorry.”

“Hello, neighbor. We both live outside of town. Does that mean something?”
“This morning I accidentally stepped on a bug. Sometimes I think it's impossible to live without destroying nature in some way.”
“There's actually a lot of wild food in this area, if you know where to look. I've been having fresh salads almost every day.”
“It's simpler to be friends with the trees. They don't have much to say.”
“We wouldn't be able to survive without nature. It's good to remember that.”
“Hello, [Player]. It's a nice day, isn't it? Stop by my cabin if you ever need someone to talk to.”
“I love to decorate for the different seasons.”
“If you hear any banging from inside my hut, it's probably just me working on one of my sculptures.”

If sold crops to Pierre

“The other day I bought an [item] at Pierre's. It was perfect on a bed of greens and a dash of my 'special' vinaigrette.”

6+ Hearts

“I love being around animals. They're so innocent. Farm animals are wonderful, too.”
“Foraging is a specialty of mine. Someday I'll make you a fresh salad.”

8+ Hearts

“Hi [Player]! I was just thinking about you and your farm. I was imagining how good it must feel to harvest a big bunch of crops. Wouldn't it be nice to have help, though?”
“Farming sounds so fun. I want to try it, someday.”
“If you ever find any interesting looking driftwood, I could use it. It would be special that you gave it to me.”


“You can tell it's summer by the sweet smell of nectar wafting through the air!”
“I found some wild fruits this morning! Sorry, I don't have any left. Keep looking, I'm sure you'll find something.”
“The sound of farm animals is great, isn't it?”
“The simple things in life are best: a soft summer breeze, majestic clouds, and a goblet full of Stardew Valley red.”
“You can use a tapper to harvest syrups and other useful liquids directly from trees. It's a slow process, but the result can be quite valuable.”
“I hate to be blunt, but if we don't treat nature with respect, our grandchildren will be doomed. Don't you think so?”
“The flowing water keeps my house a little bit cooler in summer. I can't tolerate heat very well.”
“What should I do on such a warm, lazy day? *sigh* Any ideas?”

6+ Hearts

“I have a good eye for wild fruit. Some day I'll make you a nice fruit salad.”
“Hello, [Player]. Do you ever get lonely on that big farm? Stop by my cabin if you ever need someone to talk to.”


“How quickly the seasons change! It's shocking.”
“I found some wild mushrooms over the weekend! I had a huge plate of wild mushrooms and eggs for breakfast today... I'm still full. Keep your nose to the ground and you'll find some mushrooms yourself... I'm sure of it.”
“I wonder if I could make a collage out of dried leaves? They're just so colorful... I can't help but think of the potential for art projects.”
“Everyone has a unique and interesting perspective, whether they believe it or not. Don't you think so? Although, some people have opinions that I just can't respect.”
“It's so nice to live by the river. I fall asleep to the soothing sound of water every night.”
“Do you have a kitchen in your house? If you have a kitchen, you can cook all kinds of delicious meals.”
“Decorations accentuate the feeling of the season. I think it's a worthwhile tradition.”
“There's a lot of good places to walk around here. It feels good to stretch your legs.”

6+ Hearts

“One of these days I'll have to make you a wild mushroom stir-fry.”
“Stop by my cabin if you ever need someone to talk to.”


“I love the way everything looks when it's covered with fresh snow.”
“It gets pretty cold in my little cabin. I just snuggle up under a huge blanket, and I'm okay.”
“I saw a snow rabbit early this morning! They're rare, aren't they?”
“I'm having a hard time finding fresh food to eat. I've been eating a lot of bread.”
“Time seems to move slower here. When I lived in the city, the year went by so fast.”
“Hello. Do you want something?”
“Hello, [Player]. Is there something you wanted to talk about?”
“Do you ever take a whole day off? It's a refreshing break.”

6+ Hearts

“*Sigh*... It's hard to get fresh food in the winter. I bet your farm is pretty well stocked with food, huh?”
“Do you ever get cold in that farmhouse of yours? Stop by my cabin if you want to huddle under one of my quilts and drink cider.”

When engaged

“... I'm a little nervous. But happy.”
“I've always dreamed of living on a farm. I'm going to be so happy.”

After Group 10 Heart Event

“I don't want to see you for a while...”
“You caused a lot of grief with what you did... but I'm ready to put the past behind us.”

Egg Festival

“Mmm, this fruit punch is unusually good!”

If married:

“I never had many friends in town, so these events are always kind of boring for me. I enjoy the buffet, though.”

Flower Dance

“Hi [Player]. Glad to see you here.”

(asked to be dance partner, refused request.)

“I'll be honest. I don't want to dance with you.”

The Luau

“How's the farming coming along? It must be a busy season for you.”

If married:

“It's nice to see everyone once in a while, but mostly I want to get back to the farm.”

Dance of the Moonlight Jellies

“Hey. I'm paying my respects to another bygone summer.”

If married:

“Hey. I'm paying my respects to another bygone summer. I'll come meet up with you when we launch the candle-boat.”

Stardew Valley Fair

“I really admire Robin's carpentry skills. I use a lot of the same techniques in my own line of work.”

If married:

“I learned all of Robin's techniques last year, but she's always one step ahead of me!”

Spirit's Eve

“Mm, hi. Sorry... mouth full of blackberries.”

If married:

“I may have had a little too much pumpkin ale...”

Festival of Ice

“Oh, ice. A beautiful material to sculpt in, but so impermanent.

But I guess that might make the art even better.”

Feast of the Winter Star

Gus was just telling me about his artisan candy canes. *yawn* I think he had too much cinnamon nog.”

If married:

“I'm thankful for our simple life on the farm.”
After Marriage 

Indoor Days

“This house is a lot nicer than my old cabin! I don't miss it.”
“Always remember to keep your eyes peeled for wild food! There's lots out there.”
“Mind if I add some architectural flair to the woodwork around here? My chisel hand is itching!”
“One of these days I'll have to do your portrait.”
“The view from this window is inspiring, don't you think?”

Giving food

“Good morning, [Player]. I've planted these in a little pot out back... I grew that with great love and attention. Enjoy it.”
“I was thinking... life's too short to eat bad food. Luckily, we live in one of the best regions for fresh greens and vegetables! Here, I made you a healthy salad. I'm surprised you aren't sick of my salad yet!”
“Good morning, [Player]! I made us some coffee. My morning just wouldn't be complete without a hot cup of coffee.”

Outdoor Days

“The cool breeze feels nice. It reminds me of living by the river.”
“Hmm... I'm going to do some maintenance over here. I just get the urge to do some hammering now and then.”
“It's going to be a special day, I can sense it.”
“Ah... that smell of fresh dirt. There's nothing quite like it. You can just tell the air is clean here... it feels good in the lungs.”
“Don't overwork yourself, dear. Make sure to take a break every now and then, or get something to eat.”
“Wow, this is great! I'm really starting to enjoy life on the farm, [Player]. This is the life I've always dreamed of.”

Indoor Nights

“Something about this time of night makes me thirsty.”
“The flow of time is so delicate... even the tiniest decision changes the future forever.”
“It's so much lovelier here at night than the garish glow of the city. Everything worked out perfectly for me. I'm very lucky.”
“I never thought I'd receive a mermaid's pendant so soon after moving here! I'm happy about it, though.”
“I saw a wild rabbit today. I just wish I could pet one someday. They look so soft...”
“It's so quiet and peaceful in the evening. Nothing to distract you from the experience of living.”

Rainy Days

“I sometimes find inspiration in the most unlikely of places.”
“I used to find rain depressing when I lived in the city. But here in Stardew Valley it's beautiful.”
“It's days like these I'm glad for my heavy-duty boots!”
“The trees have been begging for this rain... I'm happy for them.”
“Might want to do some fishing or mining today, huh?”

Giving mushroom

“Good morning! I got up early and did some mushroom hunting. Here, take one. Searching for mushrooms is like going on a treasure hunt. It's a lot of fun.”

Rainy Nights

“How was your day? Did you see any animals out there?”
“I usually go for salad, but a wet night like this gives me cravings for hot soup.”
“It's going to be relaxing to fall asleep on a night like this...”
“I made a little wood sculpture today, but it was so ugly I threw it into the fire. I think to become a great artist, you have to be critical of your own work.”
“I'm glad you're home... It's a good night to get under the covers and stay warm.”
“How was your day today, dear? Muddy?”

Going Out

“I'm going to take a nature walk today. I need to get out of the house.”
“Hello, [Player]. I'm just enjoying the fresh air for awhile. I was starting to get cabin fever at home.”
“I had a nice, relaxing time today. How did your day go?”

While pregnant

“Dear, I'm pregnant. Isn't it wonderful?”

After having one child

“It's fun to be a parent. I want to make sure [child] grows up to have a love for the outdoors.”

After having two children

“We've got a wonderful farm and a full family. Our new life has really turned out well, hasn't it?”

High Hearts

“Living here, I feel like I'm on the summit of a great mountain.”
“Did I ever tell you... when you first moved here I had a dream that we'd be together someday.”
“Sometimes it's hard not to believe in destiny... the fact that I decided to move here, and that we found each other. It could've gone entirely differently at any point.”
“Wow, you look [full of energy/beautiful] today!”
“Mmm... You smell nice today.”
“I was just admiring my wedding amulet... I'll cherish this treasure for the rest of my life.”

Neutral Hearts

“I wonder who lived here before us?”
“Don't you have anything to do today?”


“Don't forget to look for wild horseradish, leeks and dandelions while you're out there!”
