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 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.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The City View Suite was everything we could have wanted. It was nicely furnished and the beds, linens, towels, etc. were great. We stayed for two nights and explored the area. We walked everywhere - Bluff & Main St shops/restaurants/bars, casino, river walk, etc. We would highly recommend this suite. The coffee shop on the main floor of the building was an added bonus! We also recommend stopping in RF2 Furniture Warehouse which is only 2 blocks away. It's a unique and fun store.

Fun in Dubuque

  • 4 of 5

We had the City View apartment for five nights. It was very pleasent, clean and nice. The only drawback is the noise from the street below. Parking was easy and instructions on checking in and out were clear. The coffee shop below was great.

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Drake House City View this past weekend and it was FANTASTIC! 2 couples had everything we needed and more: great location to start...in a revitalized area of Dubuque with yummy restaurants within walking distance and a coffee shop right downstairs; comfy beds with 2 full bathrooms; hot tub on the deck and all other amenities including a full kitchen. Owners are friendly, easy to work with and responsive, we definitely hope to be back!!

A great family getaway

  • 4 of 5

As I said previously, the facilities are beautiful and the owners are extremely friendly and accomadating. After I was shown the 2 apartments I realized that the third apartment would be better suited for my group than the second apartment. They graciously contacted the renters of the second apartment and asked if they wouldn't mind switching. These renters hadn't arrived yet and agreed to the switch. I'm thankful for the owners and the other renters. It turned out to be a win for all.

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because we had to ask for amenities that were listed as being provided. The a amenities were delivered for the second night.

Amazing Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Iowa for the Team of Dreams events and decided to stay at the City View Drake House. The condo is beautiful and in a great location for shopping, restaurants and local tourist attractions. We loved the decor and the house has everything you need right there(soaps, shampoo, hair dryer, towels, dishes even laundry detergent(if you need to do a load while your there). The unit has wonderful climate control so we were never too hot even being on the top floor.

The gas fireplace is beautiful and my husband loved the hot tub on the deck. We ate lunch on the deck one day and it was very relaxing. The beds are extremely comfortable and the high beams on the ceiling were gorgeous.

The steps going up to the unit could be an issue for some people but it made for a good workout for us.

We look forward to staying here again when in Iowa!!!!

Everything you need plus perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Dubuque for the 2016 RAW (Ride Across Wisconsin) Bike Ride and found ourselves blocked out of the Ride sponsored hotels. Thank goodness for that, because we found Drake House! It is perfect for any number of nights stay. Drake House is in a charming part of downtown Dubuque with views across the city. We walked to anything we needed, including a bike shop for last minute repairs. The 2 bdrom City View apartment is on the top floor of a charming brick building that sits over Charlotte's Coffee House. You can have breakfast delivered! The amenities of the apartment include private parking, back deck with hot tub, full kitchen, a/c, laundry, 2 bdrms (1 with private full bath) and a lovely sitting area plus dining room. We will likely do the Ride again in 2017 and will stay at Drake House again. PS. Walk to Brazen for dinner---you won't be sorry.

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).
