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.

A Class Act

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment very comfortable and were impressed with the quality of both the

furniture and the bed and bath articles. Whatever we needed and forgot to bring, we found there.The hot tub was a tremendous plus for both of us.Sitting out on the balcony

after dark was relaxing and we slept quite well in comfortable beds

Cheryl was very helpful and her staff were on top when we needed directions.

Great place to stay in downtown Dubuque

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four spent two nights at the City View Suite located in downtown Dubuque in early July. We had a great time and plenty of space to unwind in the two-bedroom/two-bathroom suite. Loved the design and finishes... very modern and current. We made use of the hot tub on the deck one night and it was a nice way to finish the evening. We loved having Charlotte's coffee house available on the first floor for breakfast and coffee... that place was very popular! The beds were comfy and we enjoyed our stay. If you're a light sleeper, beware that there are trains that run through town in the night and there may be an occasional police car or ambulance running through the streets. You should also know that it's a two-story walk up to the suite, so it may not be the best option if accessibility is an issue. We were able to walk to a few great restaurants (L. May Eatery and 7 Hills Brewery). We would also recommend the River Museum and the Fenelon Elevator ride for families.

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!

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).
