Mushroom Houses of Charlevoix

There are 11 houses and an inn and restaurant in Charlevoix. There are more in Boyne City, but the ones in Charlevoix are much better.

These houses are so cool! From the unique shapes, thatcher roofing and very intricate designs of the stone wall, these are beautiful!

These were a bit fascinating, lovely and unique. Easy walk from anywhere in Charlevoix. Not worth a special trip, however. IMHO

We did a driving tour of the houses, accompanied by a book about them from our B&B, and found them absolutely enchanting and interesting! Just wish we could go inside them, and later in the day we had dinner in the Weathervane restaurant, where we got a feel for the interior construction of the homes.

We enjoyed seeing all the homes built by Earl Young. Interesting to learn about him and see his extraordinary visions.

Kinda cool to see this archecture. They are spread out around an established residential area and most you can just drive past on your own.

If you're in the area, do yourself a favor and check out these houses. It's a nice stroll and you can wind your way down to the lake. Very cool architecture.
