Hi there!! I am Edith Pair, the owner of “Mushroom House Tours” and beloved lifelong resident of Charlevoix, Mi.
Being a professional freelance artist for years, I have cherished these beautiful stone structures for as long as I can remember. I wanted to be able to add something original, educational and fun for all ages and thus, the “Mushroom House Tours” was born!!
Starting strictly with walking tours in 2009, we soon realized that we needed to be able to use transportation so we could view ALL 28 houses. I also wanted to make this an “experience” you can’t get anywhere else so in 2015, we purchased our first 6 seat GEM car and the tours sprung to life. The GEM tours became a success virtually overnight!
I am SO proud to have been voted the “#1 Thing To Do” on Trip Advisor for the area. This along with working in cooperation with the Charlevoix community is what makes these tours so fulfilling. We recently won the “Tourism Excellence” award in 2021 and added a Virtual Tour to the mix. That along with all new souvenirs and merchandise designed by “yours truly” makes this a one-of-a-kind story to remember.
Join us today for an informative, fun and memorable trip through the historical architecture of the amazing Earl Young…..it’s an experience you cannot get anywhere else in the world and will not be forgotten!!
