Quick Facts

  • Developed in 1998 by Sunrise Builders Inc., many of Huron Wood’s custom built single-family residences were designed by the home-building firm’s head, Lynn Swadley. Recognized as a peerless leader in the housing industry, Lynn Swadley has led the company for three decades and helped it establish its reputation as a corporation dedicated to detail and craftsmanship. Sunrise Builders Inc. also developed another notable Marquette neighborhood: Granite Pointe.
  • Huron Woods is located 3 miles away from Northern Michigan University. The four-year comprehensive university is known for its student-enriching leadership and academic programs as well as technology initiatives. It is home to over 9,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
  • Being in the famed Upper Peninsula, recreational opportunities abound in the area. A popular destination, Dead River Falls, is approximately 2 miles away from the forested neighborhood. It’s just one of the many falls found at the Dead River, which flows around 43 miles into Lake Superior. Adrenaline junkies flock to the area for a mile-long “adventure hike,” as there are no available paved trails in the area. Snowshoeing is recommended during winter, when the river and the falls are frozen. Caution, however, is strongly advised.
  • Marquette Tourist Park is another hotbed of recreational options. Located along the banks of the Dead River, the park has ample space for around 110 campsites that can accommodate tents and recreational vehicles. Modern conveniences such as restrooms, hot showers, and water and electric hook-ups are available to campers along with the usual campground amenities.
