About Pam Michaud

I have been an Innkeeper for 27 years and enjoyed hosting many international professionals, writers, and researchers. I love food, music, and dancing of other countries. I travel to learn about different cultures and customs. When I visit a city, I always look for parks and botanical gardens to refresh my senses with Nature. You get a Park View at my Inn !

Pam Michaud purchased this studio in 1990

Why Pam Michaud chose Iowa City

I love living within a quarter mile of everything I need - besides travel. I love the cosmopolitan ambiance and multi-ethnic food in this University town.

What makes this studio unique

I love the original character of my 1890 home. I enjoy making sensitive updates in keeping with its Victorian architecture. I am only the third steward owner of this home. The previous two families each owned it for 50 years planted gardens and the century grape arbor. Enjoy the front porch view of the park, visiting on Adirondack lawn chairs, or the Secret Courtyard -a surprise so close to Downtown.

Charming room at great spot.

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in front of College Green Park, just a block away from downtown. During the Spring and the summer having the park just in front of the house is great. Pam is a great host. Would recommend this place to a friend. My grandparents who came all the way from Colombia stayed there.

Owner's Response: Thanks Carlo. It was great to meet 4 generations of your Colombian family attending your reading in Iowa City! Meeting International visitors is my favorite part of my 26 years of innkeeping. Have a fun Summer, Pam

Perfect location and great hostess!

College Green Inn is a wonderful location- a quick five to ten minute walk to downtown Iowa City and U of Iowa. The room is spacious with lovely windows offering wonderful natural light; you'll have your own bathroom, as well as a desk and wifi. With a very comfortable bed, I had a terrific night's rest. There is a place to park, so you're able to avoid IC parking fees. Pam had maps and restaurant suggestions ready for me; she had even pulled a newspaper article on Dance Marathon for me-- the purpose of my visit! The house is a lovely historic home across from a gorgeous green space. You'll have access to a kitchen, as well as a small motel-like kitchenette in your room. Pam was available for any questions, and was very flexible with my check-in, check-out, and crazy schedule for Dance Marathon. Overall, terrific place!

Owner's Response: Oh Shea, It was great meeting you - so energetic and positive. You're perfect for teaching middle school and as a Dance Marathon volunteer. It was fun walking my poodle to Pentacrest. How about a brief walking tour if you have time next visit? Have a great Spring, Pam
