Historic Stays in the Charlevoix Area
The recent reopening of the Hotel Earl in downtown Charlevoix shines a spotlight on the historic-style lodging in this area. The hotel, originally designed in the last century by the famed local designer Earl Young—known for his genius stonemasonry—joins the landmark Weathervane Terrace Inn & Suites as tributes to Young. In Charlevoix, several homes designed by Earl Young are also available for rent.
Complementing the Earl Young lodging are a slew of charming Victorian-era inns, vintage lodges and mom ’n’ pop resorts scattered throughout Charlevoix, East Jordan and Bellaire. In Grayling, the Hanson House, built in 1890 and once the home of lumber baron Rasmus Hanson, has lovely gardens, antique furniture, and offers a candlelit breakfast.
