About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Full Baths With Fireplace And Private Hot Tub In Millwork District.

No expenses were spared on this beautifully-decorated suite! The Fleur De Lis Suite is located on the 2nd floor of the Drake House, right above Charlotte's Coffee House, which is located in the Historic Millwork District in beautiful downtown Dubuque. It is ideal for one couple, but can sleep four. Making it perfect for a romantic get-away, or business travel. It has one bedroom with a queen-size bed, and two full baths. There is a fold-out sectional in the living area. You can walk downstairs for a great-tasting cup of coffee, breakfast or lunch without having to leave the building. This is a great plus on cold or rainy days! You can even have your coffee or food delivered to your room for no extra charge. It is beautifully decorated with hints of Julien Dubuque, and has been completely renovated. (See if you can find all the Fleur De Lis in it!!) We left some exposed, original brick to give each room character. It's fully furnished with new, upscale furnishings. A private deck & hot tub are included. Also included is a fireplace, washer/dryer. The kitchen is fully furnished, featuring granite counter tops, and including a coffee maker and toaster. There are two flat screen TV’s – one in the master bedroom, and one in the living area.

It is within walking distance to Kalmes break time bar and grille, Brazen Open Kitchen/Bar, The Voices Art Gallery, The Gym Fitness Center, bike trails, shopping, the Mississippi River, and year-round Farmer's Market. It is near Diamond Joe Casino, Grand River Center, Mystique Community Ice Center, Dubuque River Museum, Grand River Center, Five Flags Center. Only 2 miles from the University of Dubuque, Clarke University, and Loras College. If golf is your passion, we are only 3 miles from Lacoma Golf Course, 3 miles from Bunker Hill Golf Course, and 7 miles from the Meadows Golf Course. If you prefer skiing or snowboarding, we are less than 9 miles to Sundown Ski Resort.

About Tim 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!

Tim Rusk purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Tim Rusk chose Dubuque

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.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem this place is! So quaint and beautifully decorated. The pictures online do not do it justice. The exposed brick is gorgeous and everything else is perfectly thought out. The hot tub on the deck was spotless and the robes to lounge in on the deck were a perfect touch. The coffee shop below was wonderful. It was an absolute treat to have breakfast and coffee delivered each morning. The location is within walking distance to everything... Millwork district, Main Street, even the river area. We used our vehicle only once the four days we were here. Our only complaint is that the Drake house is on a very loud street in a "up and coming" neighborhood. Lots of loud trucks and noise and we wouldn't advise venturing off the main streets. Didn't bother us much and wouldn't keep us from coming back. The owner was extremely kind and gracious. Always smiling when we saw her. Overall this vacation was wonderful. We Highly recommend the Drake house!

Classy, comfortable, convenient accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

The Fleur De Lis was a wonderful winter haven for us - the private hot tub is a great finishing touch to what is already perfect accommodation. While we did not cook, the kitchen is fully equipped, with dishes and all appliances. There were a few staples in the cupboards as well - great to see and always convenient for guests. Comfortable bed, great light with the many windows throughout. Enjoyed the fireplace in the evenings. Having the coffee shop downstairs that will bring you your order (not just coffee but some very yummy eats!) is extremely convenient for those mornings you are off to a slow start and you want to enjoy your coffee and breakfast in the comfort of your bathrobe! Highly recommend.

Very impressed!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations. Roomy, comfortable, and just as the website portrays! Most definitely would stay here again and will share with others. The coffeehouse downstairs was phenomenal as well.

Spotless!

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I chose to stay with friends of ours from Iowa in Dubuque beca use it was a half point for us both. We stayed at the Drake and absolutely loved it. The whole unit was beautiful and centrally located. The staff at the coffee shop was extemely friendly as well! We had so much fun! My only downfall was that we did not have sheets or any linens for the bed on the pull out couch. I wish I would have known so that I could have brought sheets, blankets, and pillow cases for my husband and I. Aside from sleeping, we greatly enjoyed the Drake.

Fantastic Property and Owners

  • 5 of 5

Don't know how to do justice to The Drake House. It exceeded all of our expectations in every way. Tim does an absolute fabulous job of seeing to it that you are taken care of in every way. We had the opportunity to stay in all three of the suites over the course of five days as we extended our visit to Dubuque and Tim was able to accommodate us with no advance notice but we had to change rooms. That was no problem as we simply left luggage by the door and when we returned it magically appeared by the door of the new suite. Tim assisted with it on arrival as well. His lovely mother manages the coffee shop downstairs and was extremely pleasant and a joy to see each morning when she delivered delicious hot coffee to our room. They didn't spare a thing when decorating and furnishing and everything is beautiful. The weather was mild, and we so enjoyed sitting out on the decks. I highly recommend this as the best place to stay while visiting Dubuque. I hope they add more properties as I think as people discover The Drake House and the Rusk family, it is going to difficult to find a vacancy.

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. When you stay in The Fleur de Lis Suite, you know you're in Dubuque. It has a unique hint of French flavor, after Julien Dubuque, our city's founder, giving you a unique, inviting place to stay. It is fully furnished, including a full kitchen, washer/dryer, two full baths, fireplace, and it's own private deck, which includes a hot tub.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).
