#5 of 11 in Historic Sites in Baguio
The ornate iron gate and neatly trimmed grass of the president’s summer house, The Mansion, will instantly capture your attention. The villa was built in 1908 in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, with its rustic aesthetic having survived a couple of restorations. While some areas remain restricted, the villa contains a museum open to the public, displaying presidential memorabilia and artworks collected over the years. Take a walk along the pine tree promenade in the park across the street, where you’ll find souvenir shops and the opportunity to go on a horse ride.

  • Mansion house during the Christmas season is really well decorated and beautiful. During the day tho, it hasn't changed that much and they don't allow tourists inside. You can only view the exterior from a distance.
  • Nothing big has changed in the location, which I think is good. I like that It's always been well-kept ever since.
  • Looks like a nice place. Only can be viewed from some distance.
  • Nice Place for the most powerful person in the country. A nice spot to take pictures.
  • nice place to vist especially on the summer time

Where to stay in Baguio

Look for upscale accommodations near Burnham Park, where you can check into a room with views over the central green area. Some resorts farther out of the city center make use of the increase in space by offering pools, onsite restaurants, and other amenities. Bed and breakfasts provide the more budget-conscious traveler with a comfortable place to rest after a long day of adventuring. You'll find these establishments on the outskirts of town, or along the side streets in and around the city center.
