Even before leaving Manila, Sir Herminio was already communicating with me constantly and quickly replying to all my inquiries. His staff was always available on-site for anything else we'd need during our stay.   --JcThe place was easy to locate and it was quiet. We loved the homey feel of the place.     --JA

The lovely Family Cottage is 10 minutes from the Mansion House (the President's summer residence) and is 10-15 minutes from Mines View Park, Wright Park, Horseback Area, Botanical Garden, St. Joseph Church, Camp John Hay, Club, BCC, etc. The cottage is inside my family compound which has more than a hundred tall pine trees. We have a beautiful lawn which you can use. And a driver's room too.

We provide fresh linen, unlimited bottled drinking water, toilet paper, towels, soap, shampoo, etc.

The space

This casual cottage is located just 3 minutes outside the city limits and inside a secured family compound with more than a hundred pine trees. You will share the garage of the main house. The minimum stay during weekends is 2 nights.

The Family cottage is 5 minutes from Mansion House. Parking is enormous and secured. Wifi is free and normally very good.

Guest access

you will have access to the whole cottage and the big lawn near the main house. none of our staff will sleep in the Family cottage. the housekeepers are in the main house and can be called anytime. if you have kids below 6 years old, they can play at my grandchildren's playground.

Interaction with guests

if you need anything, please call or text me at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) or call Sally at the main house.

Mr. Herminio is very kind and accommodating. He let us enter in his family cottage earlier than the check in time ( 5 hours earlier!!! ) He is very considerate with the travel time that we had. Also, the place is very peaceful and quiet that you will sure enjoy the privacy with your family and friends. The location is perfect also to go around Baguio. It was a perfect weekend indeed!

Great place for a family or group stay. Two dining areas and a fireplace too !! Perfect environment for family or group get togethers. Spacious bedrooms, multiple bathrooms and even a reading area with piano. Full kitchen so if you feel like cooking you have all the amenities. Real jewel of a find in Baguio. Very professional coordination before the trip. Figuring out how to operate the bathroom water heater controls properly can mean a chilly shower or a good hot shower in the morning ;) Overall, really a great place and a different experience from a hotel stay.

We really really enjoyed our quick vacation at Hermi's home. He was a very pleasant host and he assisted us and made sure that we were doing great. His home is the perfect vacation house indeed! The rooms are spacious and clean and we had so much fun making smores in the fireplace! Will definitely recommend his home to our friends and relatives! :)

The kids love the fireplace and the homey house is just what we need for a Baguio stay. The pine trees abound in the cottage perimeter. There were several roadblocks to pushing through with the trip e.g. typhoon signal #2 but Herminio is very easy to talk to for flexibility. It is a good place to get away from the busy city center. The three friendly dogs a plus

The house is perfect. Location - very easy to find. If you have waze or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) map, it will direct you in the exact location. For Taxi rides, make sure to tell the driver before Tuding Elementary school and not Itogon, as Itogon is quite far from Baguio House is very private. It was perfect for our family. Upon entering the living room, the first thing that you will notice is the fireplace and the scenic view of pine trees outside. The 2nd dining area is also very beautiful. Imagine Eating with your family and having a scenic view of the trees. Kitchen is fully equipped, they have coffee machine, water dispenser, rice cooker, clean plates and cutleries, and they even have a blender. Which is perfect for families like us who enjoy home cooked meals rather than eating outside. Bedrooms are comfortable and spacious. They have provided quality linens and towels. Bathrooms are also clean. Nanay Sally who assisted us during our stay is very accommodating and friendly. She even asked us to pick the some fruits and plants in the garden to bring with us. We took some lime and lime leaves. Overall experience is amazing. We will definitely recommend this to our family and friends, or even strangers. We will definitely be back. Ellen
