Last year, while everybody was busing preparing to welcome the year 2013, we were lucky enough to escape the Manila and head up north to the City of Pines. Baguio City has been one of my favorite destinations in the whole wide world! (for emphasis) hehehe. Why? A lot of reasons! Hmmm. It’s the only place where I can wear scarves, jackets and trench coats all day long without being sweaty or looking silly.  It is the only place where I can buy FRESH strawberries (favorite fruit ever), not to mention the presence of Strawberry Taho! Brilliant, right?!. Cabs are cheap, Good Shepherd, and a lot more!

As promised (from my last post), I’m here to tell you more about the place we stayed in. Whenever my family and I go to Baguio, we prefer to stay in a homey, comfortable and warm place over an extravagant hotel. My family loves to cook and eat, and there is no way you can cook in a hotel! (trust me, we’ve tried. It didn’t work).

We stayed here: Emily’s Garden Suites

Emily’s Garden is a hotel-cum-events place located on a 1500 sqm lot on Youngland Street about 250 meters off Kennon Road) in Camp 7, Baguio City. It is about 4 kilometers to downtown Baguio. The place, Main house (accommodates 12), is HUGE and VERY CLEAN!!! (for emphasis). Thanks to the hardworking caretakers, kuya Raymond and wife, who were not only VERY ATTENTIVE they were VERY PATIENT and VERY NICE... (oh my! all the VERYs are coming out!).

Aside from the main house featured above, they also have little suites that can accommodate small families.

Suite Regina 
(accommodates 5)

Suite Denise
(accommodates 6)

This place is quiet and very relaxing. The right amount of distance from the City and it's busy streets. 

Truly your HOME away from HOME!
