Are you ready for the most adorable collection of cottage style homes? I recently found out about the Heritage Harbor community located about an hour southwest of where I live. It comes complete with a community pool, marina, and riverside living.
One house is just as cute as the next so it’s hard to choose a favorite. You’ll find bright-colored homes next to subdued exteriors.
Heritage Harbor almost feels like a community shown in a Disney movie. The cottage style homes are close together and most have some type of waterfront view.
I took these photos with my iPhone so some of them aren’t as crisp as I’d like them to be, but you still get the idea of the community’s charm.
I love the unique architecture of this marina community. You’ll see larger homes like this one with a more modern vibe.
But you’ll also find smaller, cozy cottages that make for a great weekend retreat. You can see a glimpse of the marina behind this charmer.
The Illinois River flows behind this house. Have you noticed all the windows on each cottage style home?
Here’s another more modern home at Heritage Harbor – and check out the cute little sports car in the garage!
Some of these houses are vacation rentals that you can find on VRBO. There’s a list of them at the end of this post. If you visit the links, you’ll be able to see the inside of the houses.
Even though the houses are new construction, they’re not cookie-cutter which I find refreshing. Why can’t other new subdivisions offer more variety like this?
You know I love red houses, and what I find especially appealing about this one is the front yard. No grass – just a collection of pretty native plants and flowers.
Some of the houses have a parking pad in front. This is a typical bungalow with a low slung roof and full porch.
This is only half of the pictures I took of the cottage style homes at Heritage Harbor. I’ll share the rest next Wednesday. It’s such a cute community and I’ll probably spend a weekend in one of the Airbnb rentals; there are a few state parks nearby that are truly beautiful.
Here’s a few of the VRBO rentals if you’d like to see the interiors – or maybe even rent one for a trip.
