Enjoy a week (or more) at the beautiful Illinois River House. Only minutes from the quaint village of Ottawa and Starved Rock Park. The house is only 90 minutes from downtown Chicago.

(Rentals in week long increments)

Le logement

Watch the working barges lazily drift by, burn a bonfire and roast marshmallows at the water’s edge, or grab your fishing pole and saunter 50 steps to the river bank. Two decks can be utilized. One on the first floor off the kitchen, raised off the bank and partially screened. Another below on the ground level off the basement bar with convenient access to the river.

House sleeps 10: Master has a King; Lower Level Bedroom has a Queen, and Upper Level Bedroom has Bunk Beds AND a Queen.
Two twin sofa sleepers fold out and suddenly the house accommodates 10 – without a problem.
Three full baths, and one half bath and a washer/dryer for your wet suits.
Residents’ pool is across the street.
Screened in porch off kitchen with a table for 6; gas grill on the deck and two tables to seat 8 more. Lower level deck has a swing for two, and four lounge chairs for your comfort.

Full kitchen and dining room table seats 8; bar and counter in the Lower Level. Play bean bags outside on the grassy lawn that slopes down to the river. Or, for the night owls, plenty of board games are in the (website hidden)’s in Living Room, Family Room and Master Bedroom -- but with all the outdoor activities you will hardly have time to watch them.

Accès des voyageurs

Bring your boat, dock it (for a nominal day fee) at Heritage Harbor, a multimillion dollar protected harbor here. Kayaks can be rented for by the adventurous as well.

Too tired from all the playing to cook? If you don't feel like using the brand new provided grill, try The Red Dog restaurant, located at the shore of the harbor. It has outdoor (and indoor) dining options. Restaurants for all tastes abound in all directions. Boats and jet skis can be rented 15 minutes away at the Starved Rock Boat Club.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

You will have the whole house to yourself. A code will let you in the front door and your ready to go.

Autres remarques

If you fancy yourself the outdoorsy type, starved rock is just minutes away. Drive along the banks on Illinois River Road and through the curving mountain roads and you will find yourself at Starved Rock State Park (Illinois most visited attraction) There is something for everyone there, be it hiking, boating, or animal watching.

We rented this house for ourselves and our wedding party for our wedding in nearby Streator, IL. It was a dream! It was a fantastic place to unwind and relax after all the craziness and it made a great basecamp for the wedding party. We even hosted our small rehearsal dinner there, using the grill on the deck. I think all of us being able to stay together was a big part of what made the wedding week so fantastic. We couldn't figure out the keypad lock on the front door when we arrived, but Kevin answered his phone immediately when I called and helped us sort things out to get inside. Super helpful! Other than that, he pretty much left us to ourselves (which was a big relief, given how busy we were). There were even more beds than what was listed when we originally booked the property, so the entire wedding party (and their plus ones) had places to sleep. The neighborhood was very quiet all week. I imagine it would be busier during the height of summer. This property has 5 porches! So there were plenty of places to sit and watch the barges on the river or relax and chat with friends. We even did yoga on one screened in porch on the mornings leading up to the wedding. There is also an adorable reading nook at the very top of the house where you can sit in a rocking chair and watch the river. So perfect. The house is charming. A great place for a big family or group of friends. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat!

Detail-oriented hosts, excellent location and a beautiful home. I didn't even know the Heritage Harbor neighborhood existed in Ottawa IL, so right away you can't help but be impressed with the Cape Cod beach home feel of the neighborhood—especially if you know what the typical home in LaSalle county looks like. The house itself was well-built, spacious and clearly cared for. Kevin was the ideal host, answering questions promptly and setting up the home with numerous amenities and supplies. Our one week stay in Ottawa through the 4th of July was pleasant and relaxing, thanks in no small part to our great stay at The Illinois River House.
