About The Mushroom Houses
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!
5-Star Reviews from TripAdvisor
My name is Edith Pair and I am the owner, main tour guide, professional artist and overall Charlevoix Guru. I grew up in this beautiful town and made it my life’s mission to show it off to the wonderful people who visit. We recently won the 2021 Chamber of Commerce “Tourism Excellence Award” and voted the #1 “Thing To Do” on Trip Advisor. Our tours are intimate, informative, and just plain FUN! Why just drive by and not know a thing about what you are seeing? We give you the inside scoop that no book or online research can match.
We have been studying and interviewing home owners and historians on these magical structures since 2006. Not only do we have the information, but we have the passion and hence our beloved “Best Tour In Town” slogan lives up to its name!!
