Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Mike & I love to travel in the US and abroad. We have 4 grown children and a dog. We enjoy rides on our Harley & fishing or tubing from our bass boat - though not as often as we'd like. Erika has been to all 50 states and over 40 countries. We enjoy staying at all types of properties, from private (like vrbo) to boutique hotels to chain properties.

Why the Owner Chose Waterloo, IL, USA:
Rika's heritage is 100% German and her father built this property and the beautiful stone fireplace in 1997. The woodwork was provided by the Amish in Ohio. Just across the lawn, our sister property "Timberwolf Cabin" was built in 1953 by Rika's family the Wolf's.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
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.
