Impressive.

We saw this home in our tour of the Mushroom homes. Very impressive and one of my favorites. Occupants must have a great view of the Lake and beach.

Another home that is a must see. Edith is the one to take you around to tell you all about these beautiful homes and manors.

My family used to rent this house in the summer, it's a beautiful place. A very unique home, even for an Earl Young home. This house has some of the biggest boulders of any of the homes he built. I love the miniature house he built out back, he originally built it to keep his own kids entertained while he... More

It's in a lovely setting. The history of the area and certain houses is, indeed, interesting. It's certainly no harm to drive by and check it out if you have nothing else going on.

We saw this house the day after our walking tour of mushroom houses. You can access this area adjacent to the lakeshore, with a breathtaking view of Lake Michigan. It is in an area called Boulder Park, just past the hospital. Not all of these homes were created by Earl Young, but others who followed in his footsteps!

Just a short drive beyond the Mushroom house neighborhood in Charlevoix we discovered Boulder Manor and a whole neighborhood of beautiful stone homes. We viewed from the car only, but enjoyed driving the area streets.

Currently under renovation. Hard to believe they can improve this awesome home. The whole area is great. I recommend a paid tour to see it all.

I had the honor of painting the exterior of the manor a few years back. I found these photos I took at the time. The playhouse is on the driveway side of the house.

This is a private house but has been said before I believe it is for sale or rent. I've been fortunate enough to have been inside and the living room is incredible. Gorgeous fireplace, indirect lighting behind rocks and a great view. Very hard to describe but stunning. The whole house is so unique. Behind the actual house is a... More
