When I learned that Karl, my blogger friend will be staying in an Ancestral House in Baguio City my heart began to pump blood thus thousands of questions were fired away. When will it be? How much is the budget? How old is the house? ...and most of all, what is the name of the house?
It was my first time to hear Paredo's Lodging House and I sensed it from Karl that he assumed that I know the place because I am an avid old house enthusiast. I almost forgot to ask the main agenda which is to climb Mt. Ulap in which I also joined him.
The old house did not disappoint me. It was indeed an ancestral house fortunate enough that the descendants of the original owner are taking time to maintain it. Well in fact they are renting it out to vacationers so that it will be used according to its purpose and not be abandoned and be haunted like the others.
It was my dream house in the pine city - all wood, from ceiling to flooring up to the railings of the stairs. I could feel not just the Baguio vibe but the atmosphere of a home. This is exactly what I want when I'm in vacation - a home not a hotel. Well for some reason hotels are convenient but for chill ax trip this is the place to be.
Imagine a night where you just sit on the porch sipping your hot coffee or tea while enjoying the cold weather of Baguio City - a perfect vacation, yes? Get your book or just think of anything under the sun, Paredo's Lodging House can give you the relaxation that you aim in life.
