Earl Young’s Half House – Magnet by Linda Boss. This magnet measures 2 inches by 3.5 inches. The image is a reproduction of the original “Earl Young’s Hobbit House – The Half House on Park Ave, Charlevoix”, a commissioned table for the East Park Tavern restaurant in Downtown Charlevoix overlooking East Park. I did a series of Charlevoix themed paintings for their Topside deck and a marketing plan “Where you can Dine on Fine Art and Enjoy the View”. I had wanted to do this for years. A Charlevoix themed restaurant featuring my paintings. I had even approached a couple of them to do this but no one would until The East Park Tavern. Now, everyone loves the idea! I hope it brings them LOTS of business since they took a chance and saw my “vision”.
A bit of Earl Young history: Earl built this unique little house for his daughter as a wedding present! It looks as if when building it, they just stopped halfway done… abruptly. Thus the name. It sat beside what was originally the house that he raised his family in. That house has been totally restructured today and doesn’t resemble the original house. The little “half house” however remains true to it’s character and people come from all over the world to take pictures. It is referred to as the “Hobbit House” or “Half House” and is totally unique and a delight inside and out! Believe it or not…check this out… the owners rent it out! OR if you are in Charlevoix and are looking for something fun to do, you HAVE to take a guided Mushroom House Tour with local Edith Pair!
