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, three 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 2013

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.

Amazing place in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6 ladies and had the two apartments for us to share. It worked perfectly for our group and each place was VERY nice. The kitchen had all the typical utensils and pots/pans. We really enjoyed the hot tub! And the location was great; Galena was a short drive away, there is a coffee shop downstairs, and it's close to nightlife. We really enjoyed our weekend stay here!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The Loft was well-maintained and comfortable. The location was ideal, and the place had everything we needed for a weekend away from home. I would stay at the Drake House again and would recommend it to travelers staying in Dubuque.

Nice accommodations in Dubuque

  • 5 of 5

The property is tastefully done and well-kept. The loft was perfect for the kids (although probably not for toddlers with the spiral staircase). Great communication and check-in/out process was simple.

Great place in Dubuque

  • 5 of 5

The rental was a great place that was very modern and kept the old building charm. Just stayed two nights but we all enjoyed our stay. Well done on restoring the history of Dubuque.

Dubuque has it all!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was beautiful and owners were very accommodating. Tim working downstairs at the coffee house was very helpful when we had any questions about the property.

Family weekend 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.
