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.

Beautiful in every way!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this beautiful City View suite. Truly one of the nicest, most modern, and aesthetically pleasing places we've ever stayed at. It has all the modern amenities we could ask for, even down to the USB plugs in the walls. The best quality in choices all around, super comfortable bed, huge showers, and great entertainment space and layout for our small family. It will be the first on our list whenever we come to Dubuque again. What a gem!

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This rental was the perfect property for our family of five. The location, size and price made it a great place to stay for a short spring break trip. The updates they have made to this building are modern and comfortable. The coffeeshop downstairs is convenient and quaint; plus their staff are helpful and friendly. The only complaint we have is the noise from train and truck traffic but I'm sure residents of Dubuque get used to this. The owners are very responsive and helpful. We would definitely consider staying at the Drake House again!

Modern Downtown Apartment Living

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples staying for a long weekend and we had the best time! The location is great and within walking distance to great food and drinks. The area is really nice and up and coming. Charlotte’s Coffee House was a real treat every morning, the coffee is excellent and so convenient! We loved standing around the island enjoying each other’s company and the ambiance of the fireplace was so nice. And you cannot beat the hot tub on the patio! The accommodations were excellent and we would definitely recommend. Thanks for a great weekend! We will have lifelong memories from this trip and The Drake House was a wonderful background for those memories.

Girls Weekend Success!

  • 5 of 5

The Drake House property was the perfect place for our girls weekend! Between being above a lovely coffee shop, within walking distance to wonderful restaurants and fun bars, it was the perfect location! The apartment itself was impeccably clean and beautifully decorated.

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).
