Yosemite Valley, one of America's beautiful National Parks, contains several lovely examples of Craftsman style buildings, mostly built as residences for Valley caretakers and guests. They are built in a rustic style, employing local materials and simple, rough hewn forms. Construction started on the central portion of the Cedar Cottage, a wood framed, 2 story guest house, in 1859. Later it was extended with a "tree room" engulfing the base of a nearby Cedar tree. This unusual, rustic room has the tree growing right through its roof. A massive fireplace of granite matches the character of the rest of the room. Cedar Cottage itself consists of a ground floor dining room and kitchen with 6 more minimal bedrooms, each opening out onto the wraparound porch. The second floor consists entirely of bedrooms.
