From the owner

This Charlevoix Mushroom House, known as The Thatch House (see mushroomhouses*com), rose from the original stone walls set by Earl Young. Originally built as his first home in 1918, the original house did not encompass Young's developing unique hobbit-home style, but today, in a dramatic re-imagining, The Thatch House exemplifies the storybook magic of the Earl Young mushroom houses.

The new "mushroom house design", conceived on a napkin by the new owner, took nearly 2 years to finalize. Specialized timber work, beautifully erected with every beam layer, is unique and bold. The beautiful flowing roof is crafted from the finest natural thatch hand-reaped in Europe and shipped to the USA. During one of the coldest winters, a master thatcher painstakingly worked under daunting conditions, so that symbolically the new creation was ready to greet the new spring with new life.

As a surprised observer said, "Wow, that home looks like a giant mushroom!"

Mission accomplished. A luxurious Charlevoix Mushroom House to host family retreats, wedding parties, and events of all kinds. We look forward to helping you plan your Mushroom House Experience.

This is the PERFECT storybook wedding-party retreat!
