Not too far from where I live is a community of small, newer homes that enjoy waterfront living. I previously shared a tour of adorable cottages at Heritage Harbor, and today there’s more to enjoy. I love this new community in Ottawa, Illinois where you can find unique and affordable riverfront homes. There are also several rental units for vacationing.
Each home has some type of unique detailing, like the cute shutter treatment on this gray waterfront home.
A deep front porch graces the exterior of this charming yellow bungalow. A perfect place to watch the boats in the marina at Heritage Harbor.
This community was created as a destination location along the Illinois River and located near Starved Rock State Park. Several rental homes are available.
You can dock your own boat or rent one at the marina. People enjoy kayaking, water skiing, and more.
Heritage Harbor is divided into a few quaint neighborhoods so you have a choice of a single family home, condo, duplex, and more.
I truly love the variety of architecture found in these riverfront homes. From modern to traditional, it creates a unique community.
Can you imagine the waterfront views from the little tower on this home with its beautiful two-story porch?
One home is just as charming as the next. The historic downtown area of Ottawa is just down the road where you’ll find a variety of shops and restaurants.
Heritage Harbor has its own restaurant if you want to walk to dinner. There’s also a dog park for your furry friends.
You can see last week’s tour of riverfront homes here.
Do you have a favorite house from today’s post?
