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.

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.

Cute place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent a couple nights in this beautiful apartment. It was super clean and was well stocked with all of the essentials. We loved relaxing in the hot tub at the end of the day and grilling on the deck. We appreciated the off street parking. You can park on the street out front, but not overnight. We pulled up, unloaded the car and then moved to the lot. The directions were clear and make sense when you see it. The street is busy, especially early in the morning, so plan ahead if that bothers you. There is one white noise machine which was a huge help for our kids. (They complained about the rumbling trucks, but we didn't notice!) They slept much later with the white noise machine, so that was nice. It didn't take long to get to any of the sites around Dubuque and we had a great little vacation! There's so many cool things to do there. Check it out! Thanks so much for the great apartment!

Fantastic apartment, located centrally with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights in the City View apartment at Drake House. The location was great and the apartment was clean with everything you could need to enjoy the stay. The coffee shop downstairs was a perfect way to begin the day and the back balcony on the apartment was perfect for winding down. The details the owners have placed into the construction and maintenance of the property are unmatched. You will not regret staying at the Drake House.

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).
