Tour highlights? A glass and timber lodge, a hip reno of a 1950s cinderblock cottage, a Craftsman-style beauty, several of the sweetest takes on the modern cottage you’ll ever see and the magnificently renovated first home of Charlevoix’s famed mushroom-house architect, Earl Young. Beyond these seven fabulous homes, you won’t want to miss the all-day event party at Petoskey’s chic new design studio, Designs by Dawn.

This tour is very doable in a day, but it helps to plan your route ahead of time. We are so grateful to the homeowners who have so generously opened their homes for this tour that benefits Child & Family Services of Northwestern Michigan. Established in the 1930s, this organization provides crucial services to the children and families of our region. For several years we’ve been fortunate enough to donate $14,000+ to this worthy group from tour ticket proceeds.

Tickets are $25. To purchase tickets online, go to MyNorthTickets.com. Tickets can also be purchased at the following locations: Capital Granite, Petoskey Chamber of Commerce, Advance Electric in Gaylord and at the door of each home. Cash or check only when buying at the door.

Don’t miss the party! Open house at Designs by Dawn from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., where you’ll experience two kitchens, plus an outdoor kitchen design, a master closet and more! Refreshments will be available. Designs by Dawn customer center is located at 416 E. Mitchell Street, Ste. 2, in Petoskey.
