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.
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.
Interaction with Guests
You will have the whole house to yourself. A code will let you in the front door and your ready to go.
Ottawa Illinois is a lovely semi metropolitan neighborhood with a small town feeling. Full of boutique shops and hip restaurants, on can spend hours just walking about. And if you are the boating type, there are municipal piers that you can tie right onto near the center of town.
Other Things to Note
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.
10 miles from Illinois most visited attraction Starved Rock. 6 miles from the countries largest and best maintained skydiving drop zone. 8 miles from The Cliffs zip-lining and off road driving course. Our full sized house can serve as a base camp for all of your Ottawa adventures while you are in town, but plenty of activities in the house can keep you busy too on rainy days.
