Who were fans of the glasshouses ever since Edward Cullen crawled out his architectural marvel when Twilight premiered? Us. That’s right. We couldn’t stop dreaming about all the things we could do and see there, especially during the quarantine. Probably the best place for meditation after all the rigorous happenings in the city? Probably the best way to see nature without really going out? Probably the best place to fall in love? Imagine our excitement when we stumbled upon Tudor in the Pines, an Airbnb gated estate with unique glass residences, situated right in Baguio.
This twin glass treehouse is Tudor’s most interesting cottage area—accessible only by a hanging bridge, jutting out 30 feet above the ground, tucked away in the groves of Baguio’s lovely pine trees.
The glass ceilings reminiscent of hilltop Nordic villas that offer a vantage point of the Northern lights, is exactly the main reason why you should stay the night.
You don’t have to worry about pesky flies that can get in the way of your stargazing sessions. With two bedrooms, you can get to lie down and see the night glimmer before your eyes. If you’re specific about your outside view, your family of four will love the forest from the south treehouse, and the Cordillera mountains from the north.
The Tudor in the Pines can accommodate a maximum of 30 guests with its seven units. You can opt for a royal-style lodging with marble bathtubs sitting beside glass panels (Royal Cottage), a home with a timber deck encased in glass walls (Garden Terrace), a three-story unit that houses an attic with library and glass dormer (Tudor House), and a subterranean house filled with paintings (Forest Terrace)—all with furnished living rooms, kitchens, and dining rooms.
Rate: You can book each unit for P7,800 per night, excluding Tudor House, which can be rented for P10,800 per night (10 pax with eight bedrooms).
