I haven't seen anything like this in the US. It isn't even like some of the houses you would see in the English countryside. It is a very unique one of a kind house.

Worth the time to visit. Very unique architecture and design. The house sits on Lake Charlevoix and is incredibly beautiful!

These homes are so unusual and diverse. It was fun to take the ride by the water and gaze at these most interesting structures!

Are these whimsical places neat to live in w/people like us walking passes and staring and pointing and???? Really enjoyed and were able to walk to most of them.. Get a map at the CofC or hotel.. The fireplace in the lobby of the Weathervane Inn is also the creation of Earl Young and worth looking into. Stafford's Weathervane Restaurant across from the Inn also has elements of this designer and is worth a stop..

The homes created in Charlavoix by Earl Young are definitely worth a look! Before taking the tour, be sure to read about this interesting man's life! We had a map and rode around and looked at the homes created by this multi. talented man. He used materials,
such as limestone and fieldstone, that could be found locally. His belief that homes should fit into
their surroundings, makes for a charming village of unique homes!
Even if you are not interested in
architecture, you will enjoy seeing these amazing homes!
