About Timberlake

In 1927, if you were standing at the Timberlake beach, you would have seen a meandering stream, tree-lined fairways, and a farmhouse, turned clubhouse, for the new Wauconda Golf Club. The P.L.Z & W Railroad ran along Old Rand road, past the Borden Creamery, near Old McHenry road, and ending on Liberty St., near Bangs Lake. The railroad went bankrupt in 1929 and the golf club closed soon after. Lake Cherie, later renamed Timberlake, was created in the late 1940’s. Route 12 was rerouted around downtown Wauconda around 1950. Robert Bartlett Development purchased the land, renamed the lake to Timberlake, and created the subdivision Timberlake Estates in 1953. The first home was built in 1955. The association beach was dedicated and preserved forever, for enjoyment by the members of the subdivision and their guests.

Volunteerism, tradition, and preservation of Timberlake’s landscape has always been the community’s creed. Quite a few of today’s residents are second and third generation Timberlaker’s. Timberlake residents champion the spirit of friendship and family unity.

The Timberlake subdivision (click here for map) has 191 homes with approximately 600 residents located in unincorporated Lake County Illinois. Approximately 75% of the homes are located in Cuba Township and the remainder 25% in Wauconda Township.
