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. 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. There's complimentary WiFi, an inviting indoor pool, an 'always perfect temp' outdoor Jacuzzi and a well-equipped fitness center featuring a Peloton bike. We offer limited complimentary parking including EV charging stations. Complimentary street parking is also available. Specialty breakfast items, coffees, small bites, and cocktails. For group gatherings, even ones that you'll need to write off as a business trip, you'll find a spacious boardroom with 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.
