Ah, the majestic and mysterious Woodland Mansion! Found only in the deep darkness of the Roofed Forest, these gigantic structures started appearing in Minecraft after the 1.11 update of late 2016 -- and since then they've become one of the most sought-after things in the game. Since they spawn so rarely, though, they can be seriously tricky to find.
With that in mind, we've searched through seed after seed to find you the most epic Woodland Mansions that are super easy to reach from spawn. Here you'll find the coordinates for the Mansion itself, plus some info on the surrounding lands and what you can expect to find near spawn on the seed.
So let's get cracking and find ourselves some giant Minecraft houses to raid for their goodies!
Biome: Roofed Forest, Plains
While you'll have to fly a bit to reach some of the Woodland Mansions on this list, this seed features a Mansion right next to spawn. Simply pop up out of the baby cave you'll spawn in, and you'll see that you're right at the edge of a Roofed Forest with a Mansion only a hundred or so blocks away. As an added bonus, you're bordering a Plains biome with plenty of Horses, and there are some hills and caves around for mining purposes.

Biome: Desert, Roofed Forest, Plains
Another seed with a Mansion right on a lake, this one's properly in the lake. It's your very own Minecraftian Venice -- but like, smaller and not in danger of actually sinking forever and losing centuries of priceless history. Fun!
This one has the added bonus of being a particularly big Mansion, along with the nearby Desert.
Coordinates: -780 107 397
Biome: Forest, Roofed Forest, Ocean, Mushroom Island
This Woodland Mansion looks like it was perfectly placed on the coast of this gorgeous archipelago by a human builder -- that's how nicely located it is. Even better, there's a Mushroom Island and an Ocean Monument nearby, making this an ideal seed for those looking for some of the game's more unique structures.
- Mushroom Island: 66 64 68
- Ocean Monument: -313 61 41
Coordinates: -510 100 -800
Biome: Plains, Roofed Forest, Cold Taiga M
Start off at a Village, then fly a short way across an Oak Forest, some Extreme Hills, and a large snow-capped mountain to reach this Mansion on the water. With the property literally spilling out into the water and the towering mountains behind, it makes for some incredibly dramatic scenery.
- Village: -250 100 -170
Coordinates: -1103 75 577
Biome: Plains, Extreme Hills, Spruce Forest, Roofed Forest
A smaller, more manageable Mansion buried deep in a hilly Roofed Forest, this one's a slight trek to get to, but an enjoyable one nonetheless. You'll spawn next to a ravine that borders a Village (both convenient places to pick up early resources!), and then it's just about 1000 blocks through the forest to find this quaint Mansion. Also near the Mansion are some Extreme Hills, Plains, and even a spot of Spruce.
Village: -146 100 68
Coordinates: 856 100 -776
Biome: Plains, Roofed Forest
A lot of Woodland Mansions spawn on water. And while it can be cool to have a big house sticking out into a lake, if you want something more realistic, this Mansion that has just a small corner jutting out into a lazy river is for you.
You'll spawn a ways away in a Savanna by another Roofed Forest. On the way to the Mansion, there will be tons of biomes to explore -- including snowy hills, Desert, Birch forest and Roofed Forest. Even better, this seed includes close Villages and Temples, all listed below:
- Plains Village: 831 100 -265
- Extreme Hills Village: 1800 100 -380
- Desert Temple: 282 100 -325
- Desert Temple with Two Saddles: 649 100 -325
Coordinates: 210 200 536
Biome: Plains, Roofed Forest, Ocean, Desert
One of the easier trips to the Mansion on this list, you can pretty much see the structure from spawn after your chunks have had a few seconds to load. Another seed with some interesting nearby resources, this one gives you access to Plains, some small hills, ravines, caves, and some Desert that backs up right to an Ocean. This is ideal for the intrepid explorer that wants their Mansion not just on water, but right by the sea.
Coordinates: -748 95 -1753
Biome: Plains, Swamp, Roofed Forest, Extreme Hills
Like a castle looming over its feudal town, this Woodland Mansion sits by a small bit of Roofed Forest and a few yards of Plains near a quaint Village. This is another one that'll take you some hiking to find, but the location is worth it.
Uniquely, a waterfall-filled ravine comes right up to the Mansion, and the large Swamp on the other side is somewhat rare on Mansion seeds. You can also find Jungle, Taiga, Desert, and Birch on the trip to the Mansion, as well as some Lava and pretty epic hills not far away.
- End Portal: 287 -2412
- Giant Cliff Cave: -323 100 -663
Biome: Plains, Taiga M, Roofed Forest
Backing right into some snowy hills and sweeping Plains, this is a very big Woodland Mansion. It has the feel of a secret Mansion, nearly overtaken by the surrounding trees and far away from society. It's a great seed if you're looking for the most Mansion rooms possible, as this is one of the bigger ones we've seen.
Coordinates: 162 90 -521
Biome: Plains, Roofed Forest, Extreme Hills
Literally all you have to do to find this medium-sized Woodland Mansion is just turn around! You'll spawn in the Extreme Hills, with a Roofed Forest right nearby, and a picturesquely placed Woodland Mansion bordering the Forest and the Plains.
Note: You might want to turn and take a look at the Extreme Hills soon after spawning, as there is a very awesome but definitely dangerous Lava fall close to the Roofed Forest. This will start to set the trees on fire, but it spreads slowly -- and if you take out a couple of them at the corner of the Forest, you can easily keep it from spreading to the Mansion.
