Meet the Heritage Harbor team
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!

Hey there, sparkling souls! I’m Nicole, your fearless Housekeeping Manager at Harbor Inn, and let me tell you, I run this ship with the finesse of a ninja armed with a vacuum cleaner. They say cleanliness is next to godliness, but I believe it’s next to impossible – that’s where I come in!
Picture this: me, armed with a feather duster, conquering dust bunnies like a superhero on a mission. If cleanliness were an Olympic sport, I’d be a gold medalist. My mantra is simple – if it’s dirty, I’ll make it purdy! From tackling towering laundry mountains to outsmarting stubborn stains, I’ve seen it all, and I’ve got the mop skills to prove it.
But let’s not get too serious here – after all, cleaning is my superpower, but laughter is my secret weapon. When I’m not vanquishing dirt demons, you can catch me spreading joy and giggles faster than you can say “vacuum.” I believe in turning every chore into a dance party and every spilled coffee into a comedy sketch.
Harbor Inn isn’t just a workplace; it’s my playground, and every room is a stage waiting for its cleaning superstar. So, if you spot someone zipping through the halls with a mop and a smile, that’s me, Nicole – your Housekeeping Hero, turning chaos into cleanliness, one laugh at a time!
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.
