Heritage Harbor Ottawa is The Place for waterfront living, The Place to get away, The Place for boatingand The Place to explore!   Our location is our great advantage. We are only 90 minutes southwest of Chicago and just minutes from Starved Rock State Park.  Being in heart of Starved Rock Country means you can explore authentic Illinois while you discover yourself. You won’t have to spend hours in a car trying to get away to your sanctuary, and you won’t be too far away when it comes time to head back to work. We know how hard you work; we know you just need a break now and then. We know that spending time with loved ones, watching sunsets and taking long strolls in nature reset your soul. You can do those things here…work will be there on Monday.  We are close to everything but far from ordinary.  This is the place…   

  • Only 90 minutes southwest of Chicago
  • Located in the heart of Starved Rock Country
  • Minutes from downtown Ottawa
  • Numerous shopping and dining options
  • Close to skydiving, ziplining, and Starved Rock State Park

Whether you’re a passionate boater, someone looking for a vacation home, or just wanting to get away for a weekend (or longer), we want Heritage Harbor to the place you call your home away from home.  

Starved Rock Country is just a short drive away from Chicago, but worlds away from the craziness of life.  The natural, archaeological, and historic heritage available in our slice of Heaven allows you to experience the nature of life along the riverbanks.
