About Erika Dockery

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.

Erika Dockery purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Erika Dockery chose Illinois

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.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. It was the perfect getaway for our family. We gathered at the large table at dinner and planned our next getaway by the fire. You have truly thought of everything.

Timberwolf Chalet has it all!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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.

A wonderful experience for 5 old college friends!

  • 5 of 5

If you want the perfect getaway for a family, a mini reunion, or a Girls' Weekend away, this is the place to go! The property is easy to find and close to everything, yet is wonderfully quiet and peaceful - you truly feel like you have gotten away to your own personal relaxing retreat! The accomodations are more than adequate, well appointed, and wonderfully maintained. The special touches are a wonderful surprise and my group of 5 old college classmates were all VERY pleased. The kitchen was clean and well stocked (the dishwasher and the 14-cup coffee maker made us all smile happily), the beds are comfortable, and the claw foot soaking tub an added pleasure. Our ONLY issue was the lack of good lighting - it is mostly overhead and mainly low wattage. A little too dark for an evening of needlework or working jigsaw puzzles or even reading (especially if you are a member of the more SENIOR generation!). We were also happy with the number of great restaurants and fun little stores we found in the Waterloo area. I am quite certain everyone in my party was impressed with this property, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a place for relaxing getaway :)

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 2 children under 2 were very pleased with this hidden gem. We had more than enough space for personal time and spacious to have family time. Home was beautiful and quiet area in a neighborhood. Loved the extras (robes) which made it feel 5 star! This home met all our needs and then some. Would love to come back again for a girls trip. Thank you for allowing our family to have a relaxing weekend in your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and for taking such good care of our home. We're glad you enjoyed quality family time and made happy memories. The robes and soaking tub are waiting for your return girls trip. I can even arrange massages in front of the fire for you! Have a wonderful fall.

Wonderful Waterloo Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The chalet was clean and very comfortable for our family of 4. It was fun to take a short stroll to charming, downtown Waterloo! Inside the chalet, there are thoughtful touches that you don't see at all rental properties... Washer and dryer including detergent. Foosball table for fun! Black-out blinds in the bedrooms. Suitcase racks in every room. Lots of hangers in closets. Informative binder of things to do and places to see in Waterloo and St. Louis. Coffee condiments. Big dining room table. A pack-n-play is available and the stairs have built-in gates, which is great for families with toddlers. Outside there is ample off-street parking and a lovely little yard with a picnic table. I grew up in Waterloo, so we'll look into this chalet when we visit again. We highly recommend it!

Nice place to stay only 20 minutes from St. Louis

Relaxing cabin style home just 20 minutes away from St. Louis. Home was very clean and well kept up. We enjoyed our time here and would recommend to others.
