Like most lodges and inns in Sagada, Misty Lodge’s accommodations were basic. We stayed in a room facing the pine tree studded back of the lodge. Waking up to the scene and scent of pine trees is something I really miss.
Making the reservation with Misty Lodge was easy because the owner, manang Sigrid, was quick to reply to messages. Bogan is the kitchen boss and was responsible for the yummy food we had at the lodge.
I wasn’t able to take photos of the meals we had there. But this one – the homemade yoghurt – I really loved. It’s not too tangy, which is to my liking. It was creamy and mild and made me happy! Plus the homegrown honey on top is really, really yummy. Because I don’t like very tart yoghurt (that’s just me), I like this one better than Yoghurt House’s.
My sis had the Eggs Beneficent twice for breakfast so it must have been good!
Because Christmas was over, they have taken down the Christmas tree (which I saw on FB to be so pretty!), and replaced the decor with a Valentines-y theme. Hmmmm.
The fireplace is always lit in the evening and the morning when it’s very cold. I shot this at midday.
The dining area –
As you can see, the lodge was mostly empty because we went to Sagada on weekdays. There were only 3 rooms occupied, for which we were glad, because the two bathrooms are common. I could imagine the scenario if all rooms – there are 6 or 7 I think – were occupied. Everyone would have to be patient and quick.
The rooms are clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but you will get a warm and comfy bed to retire to after a long day of Sagada exploration.
For the warm hospitality, the clean and comfy rooms, and the superb yoghurt, we give Misty Lodge Sagada two thumbs up!
