Jeremy (and wife Kristi too) are a true gem on the Illinois River, especially for loopers. Even a boater well experienced ion the Illinois Waterway can learn many things from Jeremy's "Looper Briefing" If you have circled Hoppies as a must-stop, you need to include Heritage for the trip to get to Hoppies. The Marina comes with excellent amenities, great prices, especially with the AGLCA discount. Great showers, restauraunt, and Quest for your mechanical needs. Don't let the lock delays cause you to miss this important stop! !

Very protected, lovely grounds, great restaurant, Jeremy gives a talk on the next 300 miles of the journey that is extremely informative. Should be a must stop for all.

We were not out of the lock until after dark. The marina had a guide boat lead us into the harbor, provided us with a late dinner, and exceeded all of our expectations. This is one excellent marina.

Best experience we have had at a marina! We were sad we were only staying one night. Jeremy and team did a great job bringing in the 4 or 5 boats coming in at the same time. Very professional. It is a great marina and the Red Dog Grill serves great food as well. A wonderful experience!

Heritage Harbor Marina is on our Top 10 list. They are organized, friendly, and knowledgeable. The service they provided is top notch. Laundry was the only thing they did have, but the one in town was nice and clean.

Heritage Harbor went above and beyond! They greater 12 boats who arrived about 9p. Was very organized and found space for everyone. They even kept the restaurant open late while Jeremy briefed the boaters on the rivers ahead. The marina is wonderful, clean, and plenty of space. Highly recommend staying there!
