About Rika Dockery
I was bitten by the travel bug as a child. I've been to all 50 states and 42 countries on 4 continents (so far). I love welcoming people from all over the world. As a writer for Vacation Rental Travels Magazine, I also enjoy staying in other vacation rental homes. It was a complete fluke that I learned this home that my father built in 1997 was coming on the market. Its a joy to welcome guests to this special home.
Rika Dockery purchased this Chalet in 2015
Why Rika Dockery chose Waterloo
My heritage is 100% German and my dad built this chalet on my grandparent's original property. He was the craftsman for the 25' stone fireplace. The woodwork was provided by the Amish in Ohio. Just across the lawn, our sister property "Timberwolf Cabin" was built in 1953 by my family (The Wolf's).
What makes this Chalet unique
If you "like" our social media page (Timberwolf, Waterloo IL) you will see links to area attractions. Small town, country living while near the city provides the best of both worlds. I love being able to walk to town for craft breweries, wine bar, restaurants, shops, band concerts, plays, festivals... Its been fun to rediscover this town after living out of the area for so long.

Very comfortable and loved the extra room in the cabin
A real get away feel once you enter the chalet! A convenient drive to get places and yet you feel like you’re “away from it all” once you enter !
Home away from home
From the moment you walked into the chalet you felt at home it was warm & inviting and decorated beautifully. It was the perfect place to stay with my pup we enjoyed our walks around the neighborhood. I visited the Cahokia Mounds State historical site and found it very interesting I would recommend it to anyone who likes history. Overall our stay was wonderful & I would stay here again if passing thru Waterloo.
Beautiful chalet with everything you need!
Absolutely loved staying at the Timberwolf! Rika was wonderful to work with and provided a bunch of recommendations within walking distance. The chalet is beautiful! The whole layout was inviting and the kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need. My daughter and son-in-law stayed in the main floor bedroom and said the bed was nice and comfortable. I stayed downstairs and enjoyed the cool privacy as well as the firm bed! I have back issues so the mattress really helped me get a good night's sleep. I also enjoyed the claw foot rub in the upstairs bathroom!
Rika thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us! We loved our stay and will definitely book again if we are in the area!
Quiet beautiful place
Very quiet, comfortable clean place. Great communication with owner! Thanks so much!
Great stay if you want to get away from it all
Charming dog friendly chalet located in scenic town. Quiet, beautiful landscaping with a large, diverse bird population. Well equipped kitchen and lots of local dining recommendations provided. Enjoyed good local restaurants with easy parking.
We absolutely loved our stay at this location. It was close to a grocery and movie theatre and only 30 minutes from St. Louis. The house felt like a home away from home. Perfect for our getaway!
Annbriar and two other golf courses are minutes from house. Ball fields across street. Skate park less than 10 minute walk. We provide a guest binder with brochures for area activities + menus for local restaurants.
