THANK YOU TO ALL OUR SUPPORTERS FOR THE BEST 2016 SEASON WE COULD ASK FOR....

Don't think we can do winter tours?? Think again!! Maybe not with "GiGi" the GEM car (she is in her new home at Charlevoix Mini Storage,) but we can certainly do walking tours!!
Only $10 gets you a 45 minute guided walking tour of the fabulous Park Ave. section of homes in all its winter glory!!
Our booking site will not be available until next May so simply call 231 445 0770 to RSVP!
Much like Irene and Earl, we cant wait for summer to return!! As you can see here....they often took canoe trips through the mouth of Lake Charlevoix and Round Lake. Married 62 years, they were quite a pair!!
Earl Young loved Seagulls and since these birds are known to fly into the wind....they acted as nature's weathervane and that's how he came up with the name for the restaurant and hotels.
He even made the roofline of the Weathervane Restaurant to look like "wings of a seagull!!"
The Lodge Motel was originally named the "Weathervane Lodge" and was the first motor lodge Earl ever built. He was inspired by Castle Farms at this time and thus the turrets adorning the exterior circular staircases.
The entire area on the east side of Bridge St. and south of Dixon Ave. was meant to continue on with golf courses and a marina but unfortunately, money was never in Earl Young's favor and often hindered many of his greatest ideas!!
