The Boat-House neighborhood connects the themes of boating essentials and living on the water’s edge, to easy access to boat slips and planned kayak launch.  An arrival home can fast lead to recreation and leisure time spent on the water.  Boaters and non-boaters alike appreciate Heritage Harbor’s scenic water views with Great Loop access, water skiing, jet skiing, pontoon boating, kayaking, fishing and more.

Harbor Life

Priced from the $299s, homes in the Boat-House neighborhood range from 975 to 1700 square feet in size with two or three bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, charming front and back porches, open concept living areas, as well as finished lower levels with recreation room, full bathroom, bedroom, storage, and covered deck.

The Boat-House homes feature generous porches, outdoor community spaces, and harbor views. The lower level walk-out faces the harbor walk, providing homeowners with immediate access to the water amenities. The monochrome streetscape ties these homes together as a micro-hood on the West Peninsula. The Boat-House homes showcase the architectural style of modern farmhouse with a nautical flair.

Situated along the harbor, owners in this neighborhood will enjoy the proximity of their homes to the boat slips positioned directly in front of their homes. They will enjoy the nautical views as well as easy access to the docks and kayak launch.

This multi-generational neighborhood is the perfect setting for generations to thrive, for the stirring of imaginations, and for the creation of lasting memories.

The distinctive character of each neighborhood, from the nautical Boat-House row of homes to the custom estate homes of Pinnacle Pointe, creates an authentic harbor-life experience with timeless architecture and a true sense of community. Find yourself at home at Heritage Harbor, a master-planned resort community situated along the Illinois River in the heart of Starved Rock Country. Located across from the 97-mile I & M Canal Biking trail, and just three miles from charming downtown Ottawa and only 15 minutes from Starved Rock State Park, Heritage Harbor is “Close to Everything, but Far from Ordinary.”
