Designed and built by Charlevoix native and legend Earl Young, the Mushroom Houses are 28 of the most fascinating stone structures ever built.
An avid nature lover, Young constructed each house from the stones and boulders that line the miles of shoreline in Northern Michigan.
We have researched and provided tours for over 10 years, and we have an unbridled passion for each and every house. Our enthusiasm, knowledge and excitement is why Trip Advisor named us the #1 “thing to do” in Charlevoix, Michigan.
Join us on an unforgettable adventure through a fairy-tale land and cherish the memories for years to come!
