About Cheryl Rusk

My husband and I are native Dubuquers. We came up with this idea after staying at a cozy vacation rental in La Jolla, CA. It sat on top of a small restaurant that served breakfast and lunch. My husband spotted this property, and approached me with the idea, stating that if I wasn't 1000 percent "In", he would just forget about it. Needless to say, I was 1000% "In", and here we are, over two years and an additional building later, ready to share our dream with you! We hope you will love it as much as we do!

Cheryl Rusk purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Cheryl Rusk chose Downtown

We chose this property for two reasons. First, we both grew up in this area of Dubuque. Second, we love what Dubuque is doing for the downtown area, and feel that the Millwork District will continue to grow and will be the place to go in Dubuque.

What makes this apartment unique

Being in the Millwork District of Dubuque is a huge advantage to our property. We are close to so many attractions, making your stay handy and convenient to whatever event or purpose you have to visit our beautiful city.

One of the best properties I have ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for us. If you want luxury, comfort and a spacious location to stay as a couple of family of 4, look no further. The cafe downstairs is really chill and has a huge spread of snacks and food. In addition, Tim was very easy to communication and all my queries were responded without any delays. We will definitely come back.

We were two couples on a get away winter weekend. Drake House City View was a wonderful place to stay. It was centrally located to shops, craft breweries, restaurants, all with walking distance. Parking and checkin was easy. The place was clean and very accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks Tim and Cheryl!

Cozy downtown apartment in a trendy neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this rental. It was located in the Millwork District. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The hottub was very nice, especially in January with snowflakes falling. The rental was clean and decorated nicely. The walk-in shower was spacious with good water pressure. We watched a movie from their library while the gas fireplace was burning, a nice touch. Our favorite part was the hot chocolate and coffee from Charlotte's Coffee shop located downstairs. This was an unexpected daily treat! We would definitely stay here again!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great weekend at The Drake House. The property is beautiful and incredibly comfortable. The beds were very comfortable, the shower in the master bath was great and the kitchen was very well stocked and overall everything is laid out perfectly. The apartment was spotless and we couldn't have asked for a nicer spot and are already planning a weekend here in the summer!

Exceptional property at bargain price.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about "Drake House - City View Suite" was exceptional. The quality of the property, furnishings, the decor, the layout, the amenities, the location, are all top notch. The building is a completely restored property in the "Old Mill District." The Drake House, and the vibe, is contemporary, integrated into the architecture of the late 1800's history of the river town Dubuque was/is. The City View Suite is a place you wished you owned, and lived.

The owners are exceptional people. Attentive if needed, otherwise "invisible".

ps. Charlotte's Coffee House is an "on property" gem. Everything about it, the coffee, the food, the decor, is excellent. If Charlotte's was in my hometown I would be a regular.

The best way to experience Dubuque is to stay at the Drake House Vacation Rentals, located in the Millwork District, in the heart of downtown Dubuque. We are the perfect alternative to staying in a hotel. Our three suites are all very homey and upscale. The “City View” unit sleeps 4 people. It has two bedrooms, both with queen-size beds. This unit is on third floor, and has a great view of the city. It is a contemporary style unit. There are three flat screen TV’s– one in each bedroom, and one in the living area. This unit boasts a dining room off the kitchen, and a 5-foot walk-in tiled shower off the master bedroom, & a hot tub on the deck! The Drake House is located right above Charlotte’s Coffee House, so either you can just go downstairs and enjoy a great cup of coffee and breakfast, or if you really feel like being treated special, you can call down and have it delivered at no extra charge. Staying with us is considered an experience, not just a place to sleep! It is within walking distance to The Voices Art Gallery, bike trails, the Mississippi River, the Gym Fitness Center, several restaurants, and year-round Farmer’s Market.

Whether you plan to stay in Dubuque for just a weekend, or you need a place to stay for an extended period of time for business or pleasure travel, the Drake House is perfect for you.

The Grand River Center is within 1.3 miles, and just minutes from the Drake House. The National Mississippi River Museum (1.2 miles), Dubuque River Rides (1.3 miles), Diamond Joe Casino (1.4 miles), and the Grand Opera House (.7 miles).
