As we continue on our road trip from yesterday's post, we drive through Charlevoix, Michigan. We happened upon this house. It is one of the famous Mushroom Houses of Charlevoix. They are the product of the late architect and developer Earl Young. Allow me to quote from Marj Levin of The Free Press, "The best way to describe them: Think about the digs of Hansel and Gretel. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Little Red Riding Hood's grandma." Well, you get the picture. They are charming beyond belief.
