Long Physical Description:
These four structures are the most lavish accommodations in the group because they have attached bathrooms. The materials used in the construction of the bathroom areas appear to post-date those used in the rest of the structure. Originally constructed in 1927, they are identical to cottages in Giant Forest attributed to Underwood. The four buildings are grouped together,in two rows, facing west. All have entry decks on the west sides. They have wood shake exterior siding, and divided light wood casement windows painted the shade of "lichen green" that is characteristic of cabins in both Grant Grove and Giant Forest. They have gable roofs with decorative outlookers at the gable end. The shingle roofs have a double coursing every fifth row. The tick plank doors have wrought iron horizontal banding and hardware. The interiors have plaster or wall board finishes.
