Oh hey. We're The Earl. Named after famed Charlevoix master builder, Earl Young. His love for boulders, nature, and incorporating landscape into his designs led to his creation of the Weathervane Lodge, built in 1959. After decades of wear, we were inspired to build on his vision, add a modern twist, and bring an updated feel to a Charlevoix mainstay. We think Earl would be pretty darn excited about it. We sure are!

We pride ourselves on delivering an experience that you tell 8, no make it 9, friends about. From the modern decor, boutique hotel service, and incredible amenities, we think you'll never want to leave. Which is fine. We have a nice suite just for you.

A few other notable things. Start you morning off right with our complimentary light continental breakfast and a specialty coffee. There's complimentary WiFi, an inviting indoor pool, an 'always perfect temp' outdoor Jacuzzi and a well-equipped fitness center featuring a Peloton bike. Guests receive limited complimentary parking, with EV charging stations available for a fee. Complimentary street parking is an additional option. Small bite snacks and cocktails are available at both our bars. For group gatherings, even ones that you'll need to write off as a business trip, you'll find a spacious boardroom with a flat screen television that accommodates 12 guests. We also have a shuttle van that's available to be reserved if you're planning on a group outing. Or, if you have an entourage.

Need cash for your adventures around town? We have an ATM located conveniently in our lobby.
