Red Lake is the seat of House Crane in the Reach. The castle is located on the northeastern shore of a lake of the same name in the northwest of the Reach. Red Lake is northwest of Goldengrove, northeast of Old Oak, and southeast of Cornfield.
According to legend, Rose of Red Lake was a daughter of Garth Greenhand and the founder of House Crane. Brandon of the Bloody Blade, one of Garth's sons, is said to have slain so many children of the forest that what had been called Blue Lake was renamed Red Lake because of their blood.
