    Nestled along the shoreline of the McCloud River in northern California, it is one of several storybook structures designed by architect Julia Morgan (1872 - 1957) for publishing magnate, William Randolph Hearst (1863 - 1951), at Wyntoon -- his private rural retreat. Built in the early 1930s, its picturesque design was inspired by the medieval architecture of Bavarian and Alpine villages in Germany and Austria.
