Overview

About the property

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

(IMPORTANT INFORMATION): Charlotte's Coffee House on the first level had a fire and will be closed until possibly spring 2019. The Fleur de Lis and City View were not affected but there will be construction going on during the day with all the noise that can go along with it. We are sorry for the inconvenience and fully understand if this affects whether you book with us or not. Thanks for understanding and if you are looking for updates on the reconstruction please look up Charlotte's Coffee House on facebook.

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 7 Hills brewery, 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 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.

Loved every minute of our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment downtown. Soft bed, top of the line finishes to everything, spotlessly clean with everything you need. It was fun to watch the traffic from the window seat in the kitchen and the posh deck. We didn't us the hot tub, but it looked very nice on the deck. Would love to move in, it is so lovely! Nice cafe downstairs with good food and pleasant staff. The sofa pulls out and my daughter said it was comfortable. Met the landlord, she was a sweetheart and I commend her for the beautiful restoration on this charming brick building. We will book again.

Beautiful Apartment, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for a nice getaway! In a lovely building and beautifully decorated, the Fleur De Lis is a fantastic modern apartment, with great amenities. It was comfortable and functional for some out-of-the-office work, but relaxing and pleasant for the downtimes. The location is excellent, a short step to the Millwork District restaurants and breweries, but also convenient to the other downtown attractions. There was plenty of space for two and it was easy to eat in.

There is some traffic noise on the weekdays, and the trains do whistle often, though they are several blocks away. Still, this was a great stay, and the owner was very responsive and helpful. We will certainly consider another stay the next time we find ourselves in the area.

Very nice, close to everything.

  • 4 of 5

My daughters and I stayed for a weekend away before they were back off to college. The home is very nicely decorated, close to everything, and comfortable. The owner was very quick anytime I needed to contact him. And his mom is very sweet and helpful.

The only reason I didn't give a five is that if you are a light sleeper, you may have issues with the street noise. However, if you are someone who can sleep through anything, this is definitely a five!!

Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Dubuque for an extended weekend. We chose the Drake house due to the beautiful pictures on VRBO. We absolutely loved the decorating. The old building charm of the exposed brick was an added touch. The coffee shop downstairs was an added bonus and we visited it daily. It was a great stay!

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).
