Mushroom House Art!

Mushroom House Art! Pure Charlevoix. Charlevoix is well known for the famous Mushroom Houses, Earl Young’s creation. Earl lived in Charlevoix from the time he was eleven until he died in 1975. He built 28 homes and 4 commercial buildings out of stone. They are also called “Knome homes” or “Hobbit Houses”. He built them so that they are “one with nature” and they seem to “flow” with the landscape or grow right up out of the earth. He did very little excavating and little to no tree removal. He built the homes to “fit” the area. The artwork available here are original works of art, some are reproductions but all designs are original in concept, layout and function by the artist. Please observe copyrights.

If you are in Charlevoix and are looking for something fun to do, you HAVE to take a guided walking tour or GEM car Mushroom House Tour with local Edith Pair!
