About Us

Rich Crum

Director of Hospitality

Hi my name is Rich and I want to be the first to welcome you to Harbor Inn and Heritage Harbor.

I am originally from Starved Rock Country, so visiting Starved Rock State Park and Buffalo State Park was a weekly treat! Our family reunions at Illini State Park was a yearly tradition. I am happy to call Starved Rock Country home!

So whats my favorite thing at Heritage Harbor? That’s a tough question, there are so many things to do here. I really enjoy live music so whether it’s taking in the acoustic music at the tiki bar or attending a Harbor Stories Unplugged Concert inside Red Dog Grill. I also enjoy taking a stroll down to Knot’s Landing and listening to a band while the boats are coming in for the evening after a long day on the Illinois River.

Our Harbor Inn Team is the best in Starved Rock Country and we can’t wait for you to experience the Harbor Life!

Holly Bolden

Hi, I’m Holly Bolden. Our Director of Hospitality would love to call me his assistant, however leading and overseeing the housekeeping team for quality assurance is my role. I am committed to achieving an exceptionally clean and functional home for our guests to truly enjoy their stay. We aim to provide the best customer service possible through the quality of our services. We welcome you to the Harbor.

Jackie Davidson

Destination Marketing Design

I’m Jackie and I’m local to Ottawa. I love the small-town charm that Ottawa offers and the beauty of Starved Rock Country. My favorite amenity at Heritage Harbor would have to be River Run Dog Park, where my husband and I spend many hours playing with our pups. At Heritage Harbor I work on our marketing team where I provide communications for our guests ensure they have an unforgettable stay.

Pierre Alexander

Destination Marketing Manager and Business Analyst

Hi, I’m Pierre Alexander. Going into my 6th year of living in Starved Rock Country, I count myself blessed to raise my family and work in such a beautiful region. I started out as the Director of Fun at Heritage Harbor, but it turned out I have a great passion for destination marketing and vacation rentals. The part I love most about my role in the Harbor Inn team is helping people discover this hidden gem in the Midwest. Our goal is to connect families and friends to this special place, where memories can be made to last a lifetime. Your adventure awaits! See you at the Harbor.
