Sawyer Village is located at the former K. I. Sawyer Air Force Base in Gwinn, Michigan.
When K. I. Sawyer Air Force Base was closed in 1995, The Sault Tribe took ownership of 271 residential homes, a convenience store, two hangars, and a bus maintenance garage. The Sault Tribe developed the properties into real estate rentals and named the development Sawyer Village.
Sawyer Village offers affordable three and four bedroom town house apartments, duplexes and single-family homes to lease, on a monthly basis. Standard amenities in our homes include new appliances, new flooring, washer/dryer hook-ups, one and a half bathrooms, basement, garage and storage/garbage sheds.
When new management was implemented in 2003, we began a strict screening policy, in order to improve the standards that had been accepted in the past. We now offer a quality housing standard that others are striving to emulate. HUD and MSHDA applicants are welcomed.
We have worked diligently to upgrade our homes with new furnaces, windows, roofing, siding, flooring and appliances. It’s an on-going process, but we are very proud of the standard we’ve set in offering comfortable, well maintained and affordable housing in a residential setting.
Sawyer Village is surrounded by the beautiful Upper Peninsula woods, yet we are near K. I Sawyer Elementary School, Sawyer International Airport, and numerous other businesses and employment opportunities. We’re close to snowmobile and ATV trails, and there are many lakes in the vicinity for fishing, swimming, and boating.
Numerous other developers have bought up tracts of rental units here, at the former air base, but Sawyer Village is the largest development. We are able to offer the widest variety of homes and rental space. We have been here the longest, so our experience and professionalism makes it possible for us to offer a very positive rental experience.
We mean it when we say “make one of our houses your home!”
