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.

The chalet looked exactly like the pictures. It was a beautiful house and setting in the historic town of Waterloo. It was VERY clean, comfortable and close to St. Louis. We came for my son's graduation at Wash U. and commuted back and forth each day. It housed my whole family comfortably. We could spend evenings together in the living room and around the dining room table and were not separated by staying in different hotel rooms. I would recommend this Chalet to anyone coming to St. Louis or the surrounding area!
Great getaway for our small family.
The house was great. Exactly what was advertised. Able to get to STL and area attractions without trouble.
We were happy to host your family and hope you visit us (and Waterloo) again soon. We now have the cottage open, just across the street. It will sleep 4-6 so keep that in mind. Have a nice spring!
Comfortable well appointed home
Our family is from the area, yet we have relocated. The hosts allowed us to rent their home for Christmas. The hosts and property manager were incredibly thoughtful with every detail. They even decorated the home with charming Christmas decorations, inside and out. The kitchen is well appointed and allowed for us to make family meals. The convenient location was perfect for our adult children to visit frequently. The home is attractive, comfortable and linens are nice. The neighborhood is quiet and safe, the yard is peaceful and was beautiful with the snow. Everything was impeccably clean, inside and out. The property manager lives nearby and is very helpful. Waterloo has several charming restaurants and shops for entertainment, and Schnucks is very handy. We would highly recommend this home to all.
What a nice review. I'm so happy you found our home comfortable, clean and peaceful. That is our goal! We hope you can bring your family back during another season. Have a happy new year!
We had a wonderful time, our hostess thought of everything to make sure we were comfortable.
Thanks! Our goal is to think of everything so you don't have to. Please come back and visit again soon.
a clean and quiet place
The photos are accurate. The chalet is clean, looks nice and is well taken care of. Everything was great! And the owner is nice, too!
Thanks. Glad your group had such a good time. It was fun to meet you! Please visit us again!
Timberwolf Chalet has it all!
We had a great get-away weekend in Waterloo. This house literally has it all. Plenty of room both inside and out. We were able to host a dinner party for family at the dining room table. The kitchen was completely stocked with everything you could possibly need! The place was immaculate too. You can tell that somebody takes good care of this property. Having a local manager was great. Brian met us at the house and showed us around. As someone who has been renting vacation houses for years, I know a good one when I see it. Highly recommended.
Happy to hear we exceeded your expectations. We've also rented homes without a local manager and agree that Brian helps our property stand out in the vacation home marketplace. We welcome you to return again and explore all Waterloo has to offer.
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.
