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.

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.

Such a cute & perfect space!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded all expectations. There is more space than I expected and the deck space was a huge bonus. The loft is decorated perfectly and had such a cozy feeling. It was really nice to have a full equipped kitchen - we did not need to bring anything. I would love to stay here again!

The absolute best choice we could have made for the perfect place to stay in Dubuque.

  • 5 of 5

Our group was 4 college roommates and life long friends celebrating our milestone birthdays. The Loft suited us perfectly for space, comfort, character, and amenities. Tim was accommodating to our every need. The location is right in the heart of the historic downtown district and close to the river attractions. And who wouldn't love having a coffee shop right downstairs? This VRBO property comes with our highest recommendation and we would definitely stay here again and/or bring family here as well.
